Holy Crap

Zarqawi has conquered territory?

Fighters loyal to militant leader Abu Musab Zarqawi asserted control over the key Iraqi border town of Qaim on Monday, killing U.S. collaborators and enforcing strict Islamic law, according to tribal members, officials, residents and others in the town and nearby villages.

Residents said the foreign-led fighters controlled by Zarqawi, a Jordanian, apparently had been exerting authority in the town, within two miles of the Syrian border, since at least the start of the weekend. A sign posted at an entrance to the town declared, "Welcome to the Islamic Republic of Qaim."
Locals aren't even bothering to fight- they're waiting for the marines to show up, those that aren't simply leaving.

I'm sure the Marines will show up, but the question is, which town will be hit while they're doing it?
