Zarqawi wounded? I hope!

AL QAEDA SAYS ZARQAWI IS WOUNDED, and asks for prayers.

Is it unChristian to pray for gas gangrene?
Okay I have to do this,



The report comes from Reuters:
DUBAI (Reuters) - Al Qaeda's group in Iraq said on Tuesday its leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi had been wounded and urged Muslims to pray for him, according to a Web posting.

"O nation of Islam... Pray for the healing of our Sheikh Abu Musab al-Zarqawi from an injury he suffered in the path of God," said a statement from the Al Qaeda Organization for Holy War in Iraq. It's authenticity could not be verified.
I hope this is true. We will find out soon enough.

Update: basil says:
Dear Lord,
We ask Your guidance upon our soldiers, that You may steady their eye and that their aim be true and that the next time that sorry bastard gets in someone's sights that they are able to blow his freakin' head off.
