quote: UK may increase Iraq deployment
From correspondents in London
September 19, 2005
Britain said overnight it would, if necessary, increase the number of troops in Iraq as fears that the country is sliding towards civil war increase.

Divide and conquer - Get iraqies to start fighting each other instead of fighting the occupation. This will creat more opportunists vying for power, to collaborate with the occupiers.
Defame the Resistance- The US learned from vietnamn that a gorrilla army can only exist with a good civilian support base. These bombings are designed to get the iraqi people to distrust and dislike the iraqi resistance, and hence that would destroy the resistance.
Create a reason to stay - The brits and the US can now claim that they need to be in iraq longer to "protect the civilian population." ironically the people who they are killing.
BASRA, Iraq - In a major show of force, British soldiers used tanks to break down the walls of the central jail in this southern city late Monday and freed two Britons, allegedly undercover commandos, who had been arrested on charges of shooting two Iraqi policemen.

Syrian Sister, I would post a multitude of photos of dead Iraqi insurgents dressed in blue jeans, white Nikes, and a variety of coloured jackets (covering there ammunition pouches) if it wasn't against TOS to display such pictures.
I have also seen an Iraqi insurgent kneeling in the middle of the road aiming an RPG at Coalition forces (you cant see which country it was) who gets shot through the head. He was wearing a white shirt if I remember correctly. Definately no black.
I am on the fence a lot here. I see things both positive and abhorant from both sides. But in this instance, you shouldn't be too sure of yourself.

If you are going off post, in an country where there are people that don't want you there, OF COURSE you're going to go out in civilian attire
Also, I'm not sure where you got those pictures, or how long they'll be available.. because every news source I've seen show's these guys' faces blurred at the request of the MoD.. I copied both pictures and I'll upload them to ATS if the pics get taken down..

waa, waa, waa, pathetic!
These men were "arrested" for "murder", it is then up to the police to then hand over these men by law. The Iraqi authority even ordered the hand over of the men but were ignored and instead the soldiers were handed over to the local militia. Now, what the f*** do you expect the British to do? Allow their bravest to be tortured and eventualy executed? We need to show these savages whos boss, and that such actions will not be tolerated. We're still in charge over there at lets not forget that.
There is no way to explain or excuse this.
I don't kow how Britain specifically, or any occupying force in general, can talk their way out of this, or even survive this.
This is the end.
The following is a bad machine translation of a statement made by the
communist resistance of iraq, sighting that the CIA is behind attacks
Iraqi Communists assure that CIA is behind the indiscriminate attacks
The Union of the Iraqian people, organization who proclaims her opposition
to the American military occupation, has accused the Central Agency of
Intelligence (CIA) of the United States to be behind the attacks in Iraq
To thus he has affirmed today in press conference in the Spanish city of
Cordova the spokesman it of the Union of the Iraqian People.....
Those 'savages' are the people we went over there to liberate (after the WMD thing), remember?
