"And remember when you met, He showed them to you as few in your eyes, and made you appear as contemptible in their eyes" [Qur'an 8:44]

I wonder if this is the view of those in Iraq that face the Marines. Their inability to see that they are outnumbered, outgunned and completely outmatched may be a sign from Allah to them that their cause is just.

"If you gain the mastery over them in war, disperse, with them, those who follow them, that they may remember" [Qur'an 8:57]

Seems like good advice, divine or not, to scatter the survivors in order to tell the tale of the power of your army.

Looks like Surah 8 is going to be a "humdinger".
