The two died on Sunday in a rocket attack on a home where they were hiding near Tikrit in the northern province of Salahuddin. …
    Hurray for our side!

    They should use more and more elaborate methods of killing people if they want to keep making headlines. Maybe drop a crate full of poisonous snakes on them next time? After that, artificial tornado.

    Well, there are definite kingpins that need to die. These people, as a whole, are pretty frickin' dumb. Without the ones in charge, they may accidentally blow up a McDonalds or something.
