BEHIND THE CURVE AS USUAL: Hamas is giving Saddam Hussein military advice:

JABALYA REFUGEE CAMP, Gaza Strip (Reuters) – A leader of the militant Palestinian group Hamas urged Iraq on Friday to use suicide bombers to confront any U.S. military offensive.

“I call on Iraq to prepare an army of would-be martyrs and prepare tens of thousands of explosive belts,” Abdel Aziz al-Rantissi told 3,000 Hamas supporters at a pro-Iraq rally in the Jabalya refugee camp in the Gaza Strip

“Blow yourselves up against the American army. Bomb them in Baghdad,” said Rantissi, whose Islamic fundamentalist organization has carried out dozens of suicide attacks in Israel before and during a Palestinian uprising for statehood.

Of course, if this guy weren’t so clueless, he’d know that Saddam has already made preparations for this sort of thing, without striking much fear into Americans’ hearts.
