    BAGHDAD -- Leaders and supporters of the anti-U.S. insurgency say their attacks in recent weeks have a clear objective: The greater the violence, the greater the chances that President Bush will be defeated on Tuesday and the Americans will go home.

    "If the U.S. Army suffered numerous humiliating losses, [Democratic presidential nominee Sen. John] Kerry would emerge as the superman of the American people," said Mohammad Amin Bashar, a leader of the Muslim Scholars Association, a hard-line clerical group that vocally supports the resistance.

    Resistance leader Abu Jalal boasted that the mounting violence had already hurt Mr. Bush's chances.

    "American elections and Iraq are linked tightly together," he told a Fallujah-based Iraqi reporter. "We've got to work to change the election, and we've done so. With our strikes, we've dragged Bush into the mud."

    If the desire of the insurgency is jihad, then why would they want John Kerry elected?

    Maybe they think that we will implode from within. After all, a house divided cannot stand.

    If they were serious about defeating Bush in the election seems to me it would be alot easier if they just aquired the codes to hack the electronic vote machines. The machines that have no paper trail anyway. [​IMG]
