The Islamic State of Iraq, an umbrella organization of Iraqi terrorist groups, vows to kill all 70,000 Iraqis who have been employed by the United States during the past seven years.

The announcement was made in a document published by the organization in Fallujah.

The document states that the killing of the employees “cannot be accomplished within one or two months,” but will require “continuous efforts.”

The group already claims responsibility for killing thousands of “traitors” and “agents of the United States” within the past four years, including an attack on April 4 in Baghdad that killed 42 people and injured 224.

The announcement was published this week in the midst of the deployment by the U.S. military of half of its 100,000 troops in Iraq. This process is expected to be completed by the end of August Lt. General William Webster, who commands the 3rd Army, says that the undertaking is monumental. “Hannibal trying to move over the Alps,” he maintains, “had a tremendous logistics burden, but it was nothing like the complexity we are dealing with now.”

Tens of thousands of troops have been reassigned to the deployment effort, which will dismantle hundreds of bases in the coming months.

The outcome of the seven year war remains in doubt, since the country is now ruled by sharia law and a network of Shiite mullahs who remain hostile to the United States and its allies.

The only certainties is the coming mass execution of the “traitors” and a civil war between the ruling Shiites and the Sunni terror groups.

When British forces drew down from southern Iraq just two years ago, militias conducted a systematic manhunt for their former Iraqi employees. Seventeen interpreters were publicly executed in a single massacre; their bodies were dumped throughout the streets of Basra.

The terrorist groups who comprise the Islamic State of Iraq include Mujahideen Shura Council, Al-Qaeda in Iraq, Jeish al-Fatiheen, Jund al-Sahaba, Katbiyan Ansar Al-Tawhid wal Sunnah, Jeish al-Taiifa al-Mansoura, etc, and other Sunni clans. The umbrella organization aims to establish a caliphate in the Sunni dominated regions of Iraq.

In a related matter, former President George W. Bush and former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair were labeled “war criminals” for launching the invasion that ousted Saddam Hussein at the Cannes Film Festival by British director Ken Loach.

“We have to keep pursuing Blair, Bush and the others until we have them in the dock,” Mr. Loach said as he arrived for a red carpet premiere of his film “Route Irish” which deals with the murky world of private security contractors in Iraq.

His remarks prompted a prolonged ovation
“It’s certainly true that the people who started the war, who are war criminals, have not been called to account,” Mr. Loach added.
