Payback is a B**ch.

For those who still question the Iraqi elections, this story will give you fits.

We understand that last night the insurgents came back to punish the people of al-Mudhariya, but instead of metering out that punishment the villagers fought back and they killed five of the insurgents and wounded eight. They then burnt the insurgents' car. So the people of that village have certainly had enough of the insurgents.

Ah, so the Iraqi people, who can't grasp the idea of freedom, pwnd the insurgents who came to "teach them a lesson?" For the (Chapaquittic) Ted Kennedys out there who feel they have to tell us ad nausium that Iraq is a Vietnam style quagmire, this is pretty damning evidence that they don't know what they are talking about. Good for them!
