The Daily Mail reports that al Qaeda is behind the latest plot in Britain to kidnap a Muslim soldier and behead him on video.
A foiled plot to kidnap, torture and behead a British Muslim soldier was orchestrated by Al Qaeda, police sources have said.
Officers suspect the mastermind behind the appalling attempt to bring the horrors of Baghdad to the streets of Britain is a senior Al Qaeda terrorist with close links to Osama Bin Laden.
The alleged plan was to abduct a Muslim soldier, mirroring the murders of British hostages Ken Bigley and Margaret Hassan.
The victim would have been made to plead for his life to Tony Blair, denounce the war and ultimately be executed – all on film.
In a move which would have caused unprecedented terror and revulsion, images of his death would have been posted on the Internet, security sources said.
This is what the 7th century, falsely religious barbarians plan for the West. This is what will follow us home from Iraq if the posturing politicians force a premature withdrawal. I have an idea: how about we send our left to negotiate with these people for us? They say we must withdraw from Iraq, so let them step up and fix everything for us all. They know better, they insist, how to solve this. So let them. Right now, individually, go fix this. Go negotiate with al Qaeda, go make peace. How about we send the posturing politicians who won't support the troops? How about we send the Western media. They all have better ideas. Let them prove it.
Go ahead. Or go, a head, as the case may be. Let's see your better way, your solution. Go on. The left is overly fond of the "Chickenhawk" meme. Here's their chance to prove their "Chickendove" credentials. Go negotiate with al Qaeda.
We'll promise a decent burial. Or two, depending on if we recover the parts at the same time.
