So, what will the Iraqi olympic swim team wear?

The Islamofascists are at it again in Iraq, imposing their own unique ideas of what's proper, this time gunning down a couple of tennis players and their coach. Their offense? Wearing shorts.

In all fairness, they were warned in advance. From the article:
The athletes were in shorts when they were killed and police believe the attack was related to a warning by extremists against such attire, police Lt. Maitham Abdul Razzaq said. He said the warning was made in leaflets distributed in the Sadiyah neighborhood in southwest Baghdad a week before the attack.
This is the second attack on Iraqi athletes in a little more than a week. From the same article:
A taekwondo team was kidnapped in western Iraq while driving to a training camp in neighboring Jordan on May 17. The 15 athletes were snatched on a road between the cities of Fallujah and Ramadi, a particularly violent area. The athletes were members of a private sports club that hopes to one day send athletes to the Olympics.
Wait...fifteen of them? Either there were a hell of a lot of kidnappers, or these guys need to work some more on their taekwondo.

The article doesn't state what the taekwondo team was wearing at the time of their capture.
