Snipers

Marine snipers, to be precise. Paying the postage on a trio of AQ assassins trying their best to keep al Anbar ungovernable through murder and intimidation. Snipers don’t play:

CAMP FALLUJAH, Iraq– An Al Qaeda assassination team was killed by Coalition Forces in Fallujah Tuesday.  Coalition snipers heard gunshots and quickly responded to the murder of an off-duty Fallujah policeman by gunmen in civilian clothes.  The Marines from 1st Battalion, 24th Marines, Regimental Combat Team 5 immediately engaged the armed gunmen and killed two of them.

The third gunman was killed as he attempted to flee in a vehicle.

“We honor the service of the Fallujah policeman Hamed Mohammed Jassim,” said Coalition spokesperson Marine Lt. Col. Bryan Salas.  “He stood against the murder and intimidation campaign of the terrorists to help bring security and prosperity to his neighbors in Fallujah.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”

Assault rifles and other items were recovered from the gunmen.

The guys who blow themselves up in cars, police recruiting stations and mosques don’t expect to live. M&I teams do.

Good riddance.
