AQIM Commander Killed in Mali

Two posts in a row where the French take on terrorists? I blame the sequester.

If anyone deserved to die, it was Abou Zeid:

ne of al-Qaeda in Islamic Maghreb’s top commanders was killed by French ground forces at the foothills of the Adrar des Ifoghas, a region in Mali’s extreme Northwest, where other top AQIM leadership and numerous French hostages are believed to be located...

Abou Zeid himself was one of AQIMs top three commanders and the unofficial governor of Timbuktu before it’s liberation at the hands of French and Malian forces last month. Zeid was also known by experts as the organization’s most radical and violent leader opposed to the more “fight and plunder” mentality of the other remaining commanders, Mokhtar Belmokhtar and Abu Musab Abdel Wadoud. (Yes, you two are next, in case you were wondering.)

France is killing hostage takers rather than paying them off? I need to wake up.

4 Personally I couldn't care which of our allies kills them as long as they kill them and keep killing them. Good work to our French allies, kill more of them. KILL ALL HIRABI'S!!!

5 Were talking about islamics here. I still think a good Mexican street gang can take the French. Not the Légion étrangère though.
