Terrorists with names that rhyme more likely to die
I base my headline on incontrovertible logic that goes like this – the only terrorist I know with a name that rhymes, Mullah Dadullah, is dead. Therefore, terrorists with names that rhyme are more likely to die than terrorists whose names do not rhyme (some of those type are still alive as I write this).
Now that the Terrorist Whose Name Rhymes is dead, some of his brethren whose names do not rhyme but may be redundant (think Jihad Jihad or Ali Ali for instance) are possibly attempting to take revenge. And yes, there really are followers of the Prophet named Jihad Jihad and Ali Ali. I’ve met them both, and they may or may not be associated with Islamic fundamentalist acts of violence. What I know for sure is that their names do not rhyme and that they were alive last time I saw them.
The military spokesman said that the killing of the US soldier and the subsequent blame game seem to be an attempt by some vested interests to create misunderstandings between the two partners in the war against terror. He said the incident might be a reaction to the killing of Mullah Dadullah, who was described by the American military officials as the Zarqawi of Afghanistan.
Of course, it is possible they are merely common miscreants. Damn those varmints! Some parts of the world fail to understand a good opportunity for humor. They just shoot at everything.
