The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Embedded with the Enemy

Ibraheem Abu Mustafa of REUTERS tirelessly brings us the terrorists' side of everyday news events. Apparently, his allies in Islamic Jihad—a designated terrorist group, incidentally—are all wound up and worried about an "impending" attack by the Israeli Defence Forces.

The training exercise is part of preparations by the militants to face what they believe to be an impending Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip. REUTERS/Ibraheem Abu Mustafa (GAZA)

Impending Israeli invasion? Is that something like the coming war on Iran that these idiots keep spouting off about?

Update: An indeterminate AP stringer was on-scene as well. As an aside, it's curious to note that the Associated Press stopped sending photographer identifications along with some of its captions sometime over the past week. I'd be interested in knowing how a decision like that gets made, and why.

I was wondering about this after I heard about the Qassam attack on the Israeli soldiers. But these pictures are from the southern Gaza strip whereas the attack on the soldiers took place in the north.

This looks like another staged photo-op. they don't look exaserbated, tired, or trying to hide from bullets. They just look like they want their pics in the paper.

The top pic looks like a front page spread for the local gun shop magazine.

Second pic... isn't that a woman's head covering?!?!?

Third pic,, "ok let's stand out here in the open with live rockets and practice shooting so that in real action we would be the first to get shot and blown up by our own ammo."

Fourth pic, "OK... Remember, the key word is CAMOUFLAGE."

Don't they look like members of the Foot Clan who were the evil henchmen/villains of the TMNT??

I keep expecting the next pic to show them in the Charlie's Angels pose.
