don't you realize you're eating death:
Huge Makili-on-insurgent clash today outside Najaf. Keep standing up, fellas; I wouldn't mind standing down. For another helpful hint over who's standing up, see the Los Angeles Times:
Although Iraqi officers emphasized their support for the U.S. forces' methodical approach to clearing villages, many of their men grew impatient. They repeatedly asked in broken English, "When we kill Wahhabis?," a reference to adherents of the fundamentalist form of Sunni Islam practiced by many Al Qaeda members.
The article doesn't specify the sect of these officers, but suffice it to say no Sunni Iraqi is referring to his co-religionists as "Wahhabis."
