That's a little vague. When was the last time Syrian sponsored groups wreaked havoc in the Western hemisphere?

You are correct, it IS vague..I know you'd like a better definition.

We've never fought a war, where the other side knows no borders. Where the leadership hides, where the "soldiers" blow themsleves up along with whoever may be standing nearby. Where civiliars are kidnapped, and murdered on Video. And it's true that we are learning as we go.

So, when the truth is out, does Bush put the USA on his hit list?

The treason to come is no better or worse than the treason that has already transpired.

Yes, Bush will declare war on his own country! LOL

The truth will NEVER MATTER, M. A.
Because everyone has their own version of it.

Here's a scary thought for the soldiers...

DEBKAfile adds: If it was indeed a suicide operation as the Ansar group claims it would mean base shared by US and Iraqi national guards troops had been penetrated by terrorists

Suddenly you can't even trust your own tame Iraqi troops...

That is SO true.
Remember at the beginning of the war, an AMERICAN soldier tossed grenades
into a couple of AMERICAN tents? Causing death and injury. who CAN you trust?
Wasn't he also a Muslim?

Please remember that there were also independent contractors and civilians killed and wounded also.

Not good.



If I said that George Bush had the blood of over 1,300 soldiers and thousands of Iraqis on his hands, I guess that would be politicizing this.

Not good at all

Big deal. We have 100,000 dead iraqi civilians at the bare minumum, and people kick up a fuss and get all teary eyed when a small group of soldiers, people who have been payed to invade and take life, are killed themselves.

Boohoo indeed. It seems everyone has their priorities all mixed up - the civilians didnt ask to be invaded and bombed into little pieces.

More power to the resistance. When there are 100,000 dead foreign soldiers maybe they will quit and go home, leaving both sides happy.

What goes around; comes around.

This kind of attack was long-overdue after all the atrocities the US soliders have commited in Iraq. It's called Karma; for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

So, when is this joke of a war, going to be over?

The blood of those killed by the oppressive American Tyranny will never dry

AP News

And yes, "politicizing" this tragic event. Let the blood dry first, maybe?

US military enforce curfew on Mosul.

The US military has imposed a curfew on the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, a day after the deadliest attack on American soldiers in Iraq since last year's invasion.

The curfew was announced as American tanks were seen blocking bridges into Mosul.

Mosul in lockdown.

US forces sealed off entire districts of the Iraqi city of Mosul today and raided homes in a hunt for suspects following a guerrilla attack that killed 18 Americans and four Iraqis.

Mosul's governor issued an order banning the use of the five bridges that span the River Tigris in the city, and said anyone breaking the order would be shot. Residents said Iraq's third city was a virtual ghost town, with no one in the streets.

And 'they' are trying to create a democracy.

Being told that you will be 'shot on sight' doesn't promote democracy as far as i understand.

In relation to this topic: TA-ATTACKS: Blast at US Mosul base kills 22,
questions have arisen concerning whether the blast (s) originated from a suicide bomber and/or a mortar attack.
Here are some recent articles on the two:
Military Probes Origin of Mess Hall Blast
Terrorist Releases more Details about Mosul Attack
Mosul blast 'suicide attack'
Report: Mosul Attack Was a Suicide Bombing
ABC: Suicide Bomber's Body Parts Found
Reports of a Mortar attack

Combination of the two or was it strictly a 'suicide' bombing or strictly a mortar attack? Will keep current on this, as possible.

At the Pentagon Wednesday, Gen. Richard Myers, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said a suicide bomber had apparently strapped an explosive device to his body and entered the dining hall where the blast occurred.

If this is correct, then I think the impact of this attack is much bigger that before when it was assumed that it utilized mortars or rockets. There has already been talk of the US soldiers not relating to the Iraqi population at large well and the British soldiers being more easily acceptable. How will any US soldier be able to trust any Iraqi, whether officially friend or not? What will this lead to?

Is this an undeniable signal that the US situation in Iraq is untenable?
