Freedom's split ends

This is an absolute disgrace. Iraq's terrorists have been so emboldened by the seditious ravings of Murtha, Kennedy, Kerry, et al. that they're even using their countrymen's hairstyles as a basis of targeting their victims:
In a country where people are killed because their names mark them as Shi'ites or Sunnis, having the wrong haircut can be lethal, too. So for barber Abu Saif, staying in business requires keeping up with the latest religious edicts.

"Being completely clean-shaven is not right," Mr. Saif explains as he draws his razor down a customer's cheek, then sweeps it back up toward his upper lip. He takes time over the cut -- a perfect upside-down question mark shave around the cheek that is most popular with Baghdad's religious Shi'ites.

"The 'Marine' cut, or shaven head, is forbidden. It is considered to be something of the foreigners," said Mr. Saif, 52, who has been cutting hair and shaving beards in his small Mansour barber shop since he was a boy of 12.
I've endured my share of taunts from what were undoubtedly liberals on account of my faith-based coiffure, but when you spike it with the toxic rhetoric of defeatism, it turns deadly. I hope The Left is proud of the hell they've unleashed on the people of Iraq. Praise Him!
