Imad Mughniyeh

One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter!

The name of Imad Mughniyeh appeared once again in the headlines!!!!!!!!!!

How can we mourn the death of a terrorist, who was responsible for hijackings and the US and Kuwait Embassies bombings, and who killed so many innocent people!

Is the word "Martyr" so easy to give today! Why is he being called a martyr!

Who is involved here! Mossad? CIA? Hezbollah? the US? Assad?
I dont really care! He is gone!!

What I am worried about is the aftermath! His death may lead to get more people killed in retaliation than when he was alive! People mouring his death after what he did... and the mixed responses to that! The chaos!!


FLIP:
He killed innocents and was responsible for several bombings/hijacks in Kuwait... and also participated in releasing criminals imprisoned in Kuwait!

FLOP:
He is dead now! People in Kuwait are mourming the death of the "Martyr"! They forgot all the "FLIP"


Its FLOPPING ridiculous!

What! Why! How!

Some Shiites in Kuwait are mourning the death of THIS man and calling him "MARTYR"! A top guerrilla commander in Hezbollah who did horrible things to us Kuwaitis... let alone others!!! Life is funny indeed! I swear



***************

He was never officially accused of the hijackings... but he surely was behind it all! An Egyptian former steward with Kuwait Airways said he recognized Mughniyeh as the hijacker of two Kuwaiti passenger planes in the 1980s.

The planes were seized by militant Shiite groups to demand the release of 17 Shiite activists jailed in Kuwait for carrying out a series of bombings against U.S., French and Kuwaiti targets.

***************

In April 1988, Shiite gunmen hijacked a the jumbo jet en route from Thailand to Kuwait City. They diverted it to Iran, Cyprus and Algeria, demanding Kuwait free 17 pro-Iranian terrorists jailed for attacks in Kuwait. After a 16-day ordeal and the murder of two Kuwaiti passengers, hijackers freed the hostages and were allowed to leave Algiers.
Imad Mughniyeh was behind the hijacking of a Kuwait Airways flight in 1988 and the killing of two of its Kuwaiti passengers.

***************

-- Imad Mughniyeh was a master of deception. He was also Hezbollah's chief of security and its strategist. His alleged role in bombings and kidnappings earned him a place on the "Most Wanted Terrorists" list of the United States.

He reportedly underwent plastic surgery in Iran to change his appearance. Mughniyeh was often reported to be in Iran or Syria or on a plane between those two countries. Tehran and Damascus always denied any knowledge.

In December 1985, there was another simultaneous bomb barrage on the streets of the Kuwaiti capital.

Even watching the Kuwait story develop from Beirut that winter, I can remember hoping the mysteries of the barracks bombing might be about to unravel. One of the attackers left a severed thumb at the scene in Kuwait. Police quickly uncovered his identity and 17 suspects were rolled up and jailed before they could escape.

One of those sentenced to death in the Kuwait case was none other than Imad Mughniyeh's brother-in-law.

I hate politics and thats the reason I am the last one to comment here :D

In an ideal world... politics should be about honesty, truth, integrity, public welfare, & decency

In reality... politicss are about lies, cheating, deceiving, acting, greed, & stealing


There is a huge gap between "idealist" and "realist" unfortunately
