Ordinary Iraqis Turn the Tables On Insurgents: Kill Five

The residents of a small Iraqi village have killed five insurgents who had attacked them for voting in last weekend's national elections. Several other insurgents were also wounded.

The insurgents raided the village of al-Mudhiryah south of Baghdad after warning its inhabitants not to vote in the election.

The villagers fought back, killing five of the insurgents and wounding eight others.

The insurgents' cars were then set alight.

Al-Mudhiryah's tribal sheikh says his people are sick of being threatened by Islamic extremists.

I know the terrorists have killed a couple dozen good people so far today (and who knows how many of their own they've killed for the fun of it), but this is such marvelous good news, I couldn't help but share it.

Ali, at Free Iraqi, got the story before I did and is giddy about it as you would expect.


  • Wow...first elections and now Righteous Justice. Freedom Rocks!!!!!!!!!!!
