My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


OOPS. Heh-heh, My Bad

Or so Abu Musab al-Zarqawi would have you think.

An audiotape in the name of al-Qaeda in Iraq threatened on Friday to chop off King Abdullah II's head and bomb more hotels and tourist sites.

The speaker on the tape, identified as Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, also said the group's suicide bombers did not intend to bomb a Jordanian wedding party at an Amman hotel last week, killing about 30 people. . . .

He underlined that al-Qaeda in Iraq is not targeting fellow Muslims. "We want to assure you that ... you are more beloved to us than ourselves," he said, addressing Jordanians.

Hmmmmm. Guess a little popular backlash against Zarqawi from within the Muslim world has the ability to force him to backtrack a little bit. THERE'S A LESSON IN THAT, IRAQIS!

Of course, he did also threaten to cut the head off of King Abdullah, so probably a little less chastened than one would hope.
