Rocket Man Returns After Brief Rest

The Washington Times reports that yesterday, irregular forces from a group of “martyrdom volunteers” called the al-Quds brigade launched waves of attacks against the Army’s V Corps outside Baghdad. The result: hundreds of “martyrdom volunteers” killed, no Americans.
This recalls a post of some months ago in which one of us remarked that suicide tactics can be effective against buses and pizza parlors, but are useless against actual soldiers, who are well prepared to take their opponents up on their offer of martyrdom. If the casualty ratios being reported are accurate, the current encounters would be classified as “massacres” rather than “battles.”
