#1 Typical,
Using his wife, kids and family as human sheilds. Then splitting when the Warthogs come in.

#3 I wonder if Ziad Khalaf the author is any relation to Faez Khalaf the 'head of the family' who was killed in this strike.

#4 As my communist law professor used to say, "sometimes you gotta break a few eggs to make an omelette."

#5 Well, it definitely was a guess who's coming to dinner and you'll never guess who's watching lasing event, lol. Dunno if they served omelettes, though. The two "unidentified visitors" made this a must-miss dinner.

#7 that's the Lions of Islam way: use women and children as shields except when you throw acid in their faces.

#9 The lion way in Wikipedia:

When or if a male coalition takes over a pride and ousts the previous coalition, the conquerors often kill any cubs even if they did father them.

#10 Nicely commented, CF. Hard to believe in a few short months I went from a left leaning lib dem to a rantburg toting warmonger. What have you done to my soul?

Freed it, as well as your mind.

#13 Freeing your soul and mind...not exactly words typically coming out of someone with the nym Redneck Jim, lol! When I hear the "be open minded" phrase, I always think of that bumper sticker I love, "I'm so open-minded my brain fell out!" lol!

And, CF, I can't believe there's no in-line commentary on the two mysterious/unnamed house guests, lol!

#14 Unique Battle, you are no different than any proud American. Given all the information, you feel like us that a group of people want to conquer our beloved country and lifestyle. The left are just attempting to capitalize on this by blaming Bush. To them, you are a useful fool. To them, the threat of terrorism is a useful distraction. To them, honor is a weakness.

#15 I'm sure the two unidentified visitors were simply members of the local girl scout troop trying to sell bomb belts and IEDs cookies...

As for freeing your mind - I also used to be a leftist until I started reading non-MSM controlled sites (such as Rantburg) and thinking for myself.

#16 Wait, the author of the article & the dead family have the same last name? What the hell's up with that? Is the AP hiring stringers right out of morgue lobbies now?

"Khalaf" is Pashtun for "smith".

It's a joke, since I'm from, and in the (Very) Deep South I figure I'll be called a "Redneck" anyway whatever the level of education, or I. Q. I really have. (4 College/141, You figure it out.)

#21 Wasn't crackin' on ya, RJ. Far from it. I'm from the (at least now) not so deep south too. I just love seeing someone who calls themselves a Redneck (term of endearment in my mind) use the term free your mind, lol!

And, CF, ain't life crazy like that? You start thinkin' on your own, and next thing you know, you're surfing the 'burg every night. I am continuously amazed at how much info passes through these hallowed halls each day. I, for one, nominate Fred and crew to be the next Director of Homeland Security. Heck, we don't need no fancy NSA computer/phone tap programs, most of the info we truly need pops up here everyday, with names to boot (especially in the Thugburg archives).

#22 BA, if Fred et al were in charge of Homeland security, we'd be secure, the bad guys would all be securely locked up on a desert island in the middle of the ocean -- far from all sea lanes -- and a large number of people would have to find new jobs. Efficiency can be carried too far (as I once found to my sorrow, when I was fired for exactly that fault... the company went under a year later, for some reason). ;-)
