File This One Under "Stupid Ultimatums"

From Fox News
Jordan's military court has ordered the Jordanian-born leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq, Abu-Musab al-Zarqawi (search), and another suspected terrorist to surrender within 10 days to face charges of plotting deadly attacks.

Zarqawi and alleged coconspirator Mohammed Qteishat (search) are charged with plotting terrorist attacks in Jordan that killed one person. The court's announcement did not provide further details.

The whereabouts of Zarqawi, the most-wanted man in Iraq (search), are unknown, with some reports saying he was recently wounded in combat with U.S. troops and evacuated from Iraq for treatment.
So, what exactly are the implications of al-Zarqawi not meeting this ultimatum? Good luck enforcing that one.... I can see it now - "You must present yourself to face these charges .... or .... we shall be forced to taunt you a second time."
