COALITION FRAGMENTING

Some 26,000 Iraqis have been killed or wounded since January 2004—by insurgents. Slightly less credibly, al Qaeda is claiming a similar body count for US troops:

The number of invading troops killed in Iraq is at least 10 times higher than the published toll of 2,000, the Iraqi branch of the Al Qaeda terrorism network says.

“We are not exaggerating when we say that the number of deaths in the ranks of the crusader army is 10 times higher than the 2,000 announced in the pernicious media,” the group said in a website statement.

Make it 100,000 and the pernicious media might pay attention. Happier news: the insurgents and Al Qaeda aren’t exactly working as a team. Ghaith Abdul-Ahad reports from Iraq:

This rift in the insurgency has already gone far beyond angry words. Clashes erupted between al-Qaeda fighters and Iraqi mujahideen cells after al-Qaeda killed Iraqi insurgents who they claimed were spying for the US.

Long piece. Worth a read. In related news:

Two groups at the forefront of the violent resistance to the American presence in Iraq—the country’s Sunni community and followers of Moqtada al-Sadr, the radical Shiite cleric—have put forward candidates for December’s national election.

Interesting.
