Militants put price on Iraqi PM

DUBAI (Reuters) - An Iraqi militant group has offered up to $100,000 for killing the prime minister and top officials who launched an offensive on rebels in a northern town, according to an Internet statement posted on Monday.
The Islamic Army in Iraq, among several insurgent groups fighting U.S. troops and Iraqi forces, said Prime Minister Ibrahim Jaafari and the defense and interior ministers should die for the fighting in Tal Afar.
"The leadership of the army has issued orders to all the mujahideen to intensify their attacks... to avenge the mass extermination occuring in Tal Afar," said the statement which was not dated but bore the group's logo.
The statement could not be immediately verified. It put a $100,000 price on Jaafari, $50,000 for Interior Minister Bayan Jabor and $30,000 for Defense Minister Saadoun Dulaimi.

I thought this was about the "cause" and getting us infedels out? How would money on the Iraqi help "true Muslims" fighting for their "freedom"?

But keep thinking WE are the bad guys here.

hehehe , why is this different then the US pack of playing cards with rewards for people , some of which were nasty yes , but some of which were just guilty of being part of a government you were trying to overthrow

I am not defending them btw G , i am just looking at the princible

you offer rewards and so do they ..

they view the Iraqi government as illigal so they dont respect it

you viewed saddam as evil so you didnt respect him
