Zarqawi says will use chemical weapons

I kept wonderng why Zaqueery keeps accusing us of using chemicals. Well now we see why. He is trying to justify this.

An Internet notice from Abu Musab al-Zarqawi from the Iraqi division of al-Qaeda and other organizations like Ansar al-Sunnah said, “If the Tel Afer operation does not end in 24 hours, Ceyh al-Taif al-Mansura military office has decided to organize attacks towards important and strategic targets of the occupation and Iraqi forces using chemical weapons developed by the Mujaheeden.”

Yeah right, he is so desperate he is willing to turn to WMD. Hmm..wonder where he got em?

UPDATE FROM RUSTY: The threat, it seems, was not from Zarqawi, but from another terror organization. Not sure why media reports have this wrong. There has been a definite upswing in terrorist communiques and threats in the past 24 hours, all as a response to the Tel Afar offensive.


The Victorious Army Group, [Jeish al-Ta'eifa al-Mansoura], in a statement dated September 11, 2005, threatens to utilize “untraditional warfare” and chemical weapons within twenty-four hours if the attack on Tal Afar does not stop. According to the message, “strategic targets” of the “converters” and coalition forces in Baghdad will be struck unless the demand is met. Further, the group asserts that the siege within Tal Afar, and planned attacks by Iraqi forces in al-Ramadi, al-Qaim, Samarra, Haditha, and Rawah, belie the claim of the Iraqi government that these areas are within their control, where the mujahideen “performed the most outstanding jihad.”
