This may be why there has been so much mayhem in Iraq recently. From the World Tribune:
In a message posted on Islamic websites, a message said to be from Al Zarqawi betrayed hints of desperation at prospects for the Islamic insurgency against the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq. In the nine-page message to Al Qaida leader Osama Bin Laden, Al Zarqawi reiterated that his insurgents were racing against time to destabilize the post-Saddam Hussein government and its security apparatus.
“We are not competing with you,” Al Zarqawi said in his message. “We just want to be the head of the spear, a bridge by which the [Islamic] community can reach victory.” …
In his latest purported message, entitled “The Text of Al Zarqawi’s Message to Osama Bin Laden About Holy War in Iraq,” Al Zarqawi reviews the Islamic strategy as well as his organization’s achievements. He said his group, “Monotheism and Holy War,” plans to continue targeting Iraqi police and security forces in the effort to destabilize the U.S.-supported government in Baghdad.
“We are planning to heavily target them during the coming stage before they are in full control,” the statement said. “What is coming will be more [attacks], God willing.” …
“The room for maneuver has started to become smaller,” Al Zarqawi said. “The grip is getting tighter around the necks of the holy warriors. With the deployment of soldiers and police, the future has become frightening.” Al Zarqawi said his group was trying to organize battalions to take over Iraq before national elections, scheduled for January 2005. Once again, he raised the prospect that Islamic insurgents would fail and either be expelled or killed.
“[If we fail,] we will have to leave for another land to uphold the Islamic banner, or until God chooses us as martyrs,” the statement said.
