Car bomb = 2-3 HUNDRED pounds of explosive. Black vest = 2-3 pounds of explosive, IF it has explosive in it. Black box = 10-15 AT THE MOST, and that's IF it carries explosives. If you're going to put a bomb on the side of the road, with just a pile of explosives, 2-3 pounds wouldn't do a whole lot."
So what does a car full of explosive have to do with suicide vests?

Atleast do that, sspecially since you have eye witness account of iraqi puppet police, who collaborate with the occupation, who have no reason to make the occupiers look bad, Saying that there were explosives.
Sure the forces are infiltrated, i've been saying that since the begining but if those particular police where resistance infiltrators, then why did they go after two guys in a car, that look like fellow resistance fighters?

^^ SS, your going around in circles. It won't become fact the more times you say it, you know
There is no evidence that there were explosives. No explosives, precursors or blasting caps are evident in that picture. If as the police claim the car was packed with explosives, where are the pictures ? One would think the police would have taken specific pictures of the explosives and equipment.
Now SS, show me some evdidence not just inuendo.

Your going of one frame from a video as your proof also. If Iraqi Police did have a photo of the bombs to give to the press, it would have to go via Military censors before it made it to western news anyway and you don't accept anything from an Arab press so what do you want exactly?
ALL initial reports, BBC, Washington Post etc, were of these guys planting bombs. It fits with every scenario in which a new town is attacked, Al-Zarqawi is blamed (or admits via bad audio) and the coalition enter a new region of Iraq, it's happened over and over again, the only difference is they got caught this time.
why were these guys there and what were they really doing?
They got caught with their fingers in the cookie jar and are washing this out of the media by changing the event, ignoring established witness story and re-writting the series of events.
While no one has shown images of bombs directly (thou those bags look to be full of something, packed explosives maybe to be put in a bin like previous bombings?)
Do some more research on this, there's plently of quotes from various sources in regards to bombs and why they were planting bombs from initial reports and once that started circulating, the western media turned it into an Iraqi Police infultration story and resecue operation.

But Britain's Ministry of Defence says the release of the two soldiers had been negotiated and it did not believe the prison had been stormed.
"We've heard nothing to suggest we stormed the prison," a ministry spokesman said.
"We understand there were negotiations."
"At this stage it is not possible to be certain why these disturbances began."
British Defense Ministry Secretary John Reid confirmed two British military personnel were "released," but he gave no details on how they were freed.
In a statement released in London, Reid did not say why the two had been taken into custody
But in London, the Ministry of Defense said in a statement that two British troops held by Iraqi authorities in Basra were released as a result of negotiations. It said the two service personnel were with British forces.
British officials said the men were back in UK forces' custody but would not say how this had happened.
British officials would not say if the two men were working under cover
What is it I don't understand about your post. Are you suggesting anything negative to British, American or other Allies trying to survive the infestations coagulating in Iraq ?

So, my initial remarks in regards to the soldiers having shot at the police station and having a car full of explosions was correct. Of course, somehow, the Police still shot at these 'innocent, and undercover' soldiers who were simply walking around Basra dressed up as Arabs, heavily armed, with bombs in a civilian car...
