Pakistan Rebel Mosque Leader Killed

Violence in Pakistan? Who would have thought.

The leader of the rebel mosque being stormed by Commandos in Islamabad has been killed, according to the Pakistan government.

I wonder if the fact it was stormed by Commandos had anything to do with his death.

Abdul Rashid Ghazi is said to have died in heavy fighting at the Lal Masjid compound. Javed Iqbal Cheema, spokesman for the Interior Ministry, confirmed Ghazi's death, saying he died in a gunbattle alongside militants in the basement of a religious school linked to the mosque.

This is the guy who claimed the Pakistani government would never take him alive. What a thing to be right about huh?

He said the cleric's body was still lying in the compound, and that "battle hardened" militants were defending themselves.

Terrorism and radical Islam is like a Hydra. You cut off a head and two more take it's place. You drop a 500 pound bomb on it and that usually takes care of the situation. But this world seems to have an issue with blowing up mosque. For the life of me I can't understand why. I figure, once you start shooting out the windows of a mosque, or a church or a synagogue, they cease being holy and become just another building ripe for turning into rubble.

Commandos stormed the facility before dawn when last-ditch efforts to negotiate a surrender failed.

Can't say they didn't try to end it peacefully. I personally think they should have skipped the negotiations altogether and just leveled the building. Make an example.

Send in the M.O.A.B. and Daisy Cutters. That'll sort the bastards out.

On a lighter note, I think we should wipe Islam off the face of Gods green earth!
