Avenging Cpl. Jeffrey A. Boskovich

There are times in this life where you must let compassion take a back seat to moral indignation and righteous vengance. Let the US military unleash all its might and firepower on any who give aid or comfort to The Army of Ansar al-Sunnah.

Right: A photo of Cpl. Jeffery A. Boskovitch and Sgt. David Coullard--both KIA by the Army of Ansar al-Sunnah Wednesday. A video was released by The Army of Ansar al-Sunnah showing the effects of the attack. The video may be downloaded here (see August 4th entry). Graphic and disgusting images from the video below show the body of Jeffrey A. Boskovitch, a terrorist from the Army of Ansar al-Sunnah removing his dog tags, and his dog tags.

About 1,000 U.S. Marines and Iraqi soldiers have launched a major operation in western Iraq to disrupt insurgents and foreign fighters in the Euphrates River valley, the U.S. military said Friday.

The operation, dubbed Quick Strike, began Wednesday with Iraqi soldiers and Marines positioning their units, said a military statement. They are focused on an area centered on the cities of Haditha, Haqlaniyah and Parwana, about 140 miles northwest of Baghdad....

On Friday, about 800 U.S. Marines and sailors and 180 Iraqi troops, including Special Operations forces, moved into the city of Haqlaniyah, the Marine statement said. U.S. jets attacked insurgents hiding in buildings outside the town.

Residents in the area said U.S. and Iraqi forces had cordoned off Haqlaniyah and were conducting house-to-house searches. U.S. warplanes circled overhead and a number of heavy explosions were heard. Witnesses said 500-pound bombs were being dropped in the area.

In a statement issued Friday, the U.S. military said an Abrams tank fired at rebels armed with Kalashnikov rifles and rocket-propelled grenades south of Haqlaniyah while other U.S. tanks fired on a building where insurgents were shooting at coalition forces.

Two buildings were destroyed after Marines found them rigged with explosives.

"Wires were connected to numerous 155 mm artillery rounds scattered throughout both buildings," the U.S. statement said.

The U.S. military has defended its operations in western Iraq, insisting it is reducing insurgent attacks, despite the deaths of the 14 Marines. The extremist Ansar al-Sunnah Army claimed responsibility in a Web posting and said its fighters used two bombs to destroy the vehicle.

Graphic images below. Do not look at them unless you wish to see the true face of the enemy we fight. Look at the face of a dead Marine, killed by the cowards who hide among women and children for fear of detection.

BELOW: While the Islamic terrorists we fight routinely accuse the US of violating the Geneva conventions, the Army of Ansar al-Sunnah, contrary to the Geneva conventions, shows the body of Marine Cpl. JeffreyA. Boskovitch in a propaganda video designed to demoralize US troops and bolster the claims of the insurgency that they are winning. If anything, these images, if the US media were brave enough to show them, would kindle the anger of the American public.

BELOW: In their propaganda video (download here, see Aug. 4th entry) The Army of Ansar al Sunnah parades its trophies, including Cpl. Boskovitch's dog tags. Today, US forces unleashed Operation Quick Strike to seek out and destroy the al Qaeda linked Army of Ansar al-Sunnah. The Army of Ansar al-Sunnah is thought to be made up of remnants of The Army of Ansar al-Islam, once led by Al Qaeda in Iraq's Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. The group operates around the fringes of Kurdistan and may be made up of Islamist Kurds, opposed to the secularism of the two major Kurdish partisan groups in Iraq's north, and of Islamst Arabs who wish to set up a Taliban like state in Iraq.
