The market bombs in Iraq - planted in american cars

Fifteen years after U.S. states were directed to share motor vehicle information in a national database, only nine states have done so, making it nearly impossible to identify hundreds of thousands of stolen vehicles - including a small but steady number that end up as car bombs in Iraq.

I believe that 9/11 was an inside job, and those who did it now want the Iraq war and the "war on terror" to go on forever, so they kill more people there.

It makes no sense for insurgents to kill their own people, a bomb in the market, or a bomb in some crowd that celebrates a sport victory kills everyone not only sunni or shia .

Explain how stolen cars from US appear in Iraq ? The logistics involved are not simple.
Some people say that stolen cars end up in many places, so the ones in Iraq got there by chance. The article above says the number of those cars is "in the dozens", that means at least 24 of them. All these stolen cars got to Iraq by chance ? What mafia group puts a car on a boat and says "let's send it to Iraq someone will surely buy it there". Mafia does business in Iraq undisturbed ?

Or if it is all planned why don't they blow them up in the USA, they like better to bring them to Iraq to kill their own people ?
Al Qaeda (the ones who did 9/11 ?) prefers to kill Iraqis instead of americans, their arch enemy ? What happened to them ?
They have the logistics to steal those cars, but they cannot blow them up in the US ?

This story is just unbelievable, the only explanation is what I said above. The CIA can steal those cars and bring them to Iraq and prepare them to be used as bombs. Another story about the SAS acting as terrorists here :

Very interesting topic that raises more questions than answers.

Regardless as to WHO did it the question is WHY bring the cars ALLLLL the way from the US ?

A possible answer : it may be easier for the CIA/whom ever to outfit the cars here with bombs vs doing it over there. Heck, here you could have army boys arm the car thinking they are doing training and then fly it over to Iraq, LOL !

The government is notorious for a few things :
-being idiots

The above situation fits both of those things perfectly.

But seriously, the insurgent terrorist don't have the money, power or the other resources required to import cars from the US just to blow them up.

It makes no sense !

edit : well well well ... given this situation maybe it's time we "allow" the government to install tracking devices in all of our cars for the "war on terrorism" perhaps they should do the same to our money, just in case and all that.

Actually its not that surprising considering 1.2 million cars are stolen un the US every year. These cars get snuck out of the country and end up everywhere.

great post pai mei.

it's common sense to believe that most of the stolen vehicles in US end up also in US or in South America.
It would make no sense for the thiefs to ship the vehicles in Europe, or in IRAK , especially in Irak

Europe may be a possibility but come on Irak, let's be real here.

Also the cars are supposedlly stoled because of the money , so what thief would increase his expenses by shipping the car. NONE

How many times have they caught British and American soldiers dressed up as Arabs running around with explosives there now? I think officially it's twice, but of course those are just the ones that have been caught. Seeing something like this certainly makes one wonder just what the hell is really going on over there. Starting to look like another Vietnam, boys dying while god knows what kind of conspirational garbage goes on above and around them.

Easy...what do Americans in Iraq drive these days?

Do you expect Americans to drive only local cars of Iraq that does not meet their needs when SUVs are preferable? How many Iraqis drive Chevy Suburban eh? How easy it is to blend in by bypassing security driving like a defense contractor or members of the PSD.

Look at this video, a couple of Marines ambushed and killed some Arab drivers and also blew up this vehicle. Looks familiar to you when its driving in American streets.

well the yanks have got to have their marbles loose if they drive american cars in Iraq!blimey,talk about lighting ones self up as a target for those poor Iraqis.

I was under the impression sensible people out there drove beat up local cars and blended in with the surrounding theatre!

You have to be an idiot to drive a pure white SUV outside the greenzone-honestly some of the comments here are very amusing

A two man SAS team where invloved in a shoot out with local police in Basara last year-the policemens attention was drawn to a serious amount of explosives found in there battered up local car the arab dressed Hereford boys where sitting in.In the ongoing exchange of fire one police man was killed when another poole team operating in another car joined in the fun.The Hereford boys car blew up while they where still in it and their friends scappered.There used to be a link to this story online but it has vanished-could it be true?Who knows but an old mate of mine had some pretty amazing stories of when he was working in Angolia and other places.They dont have morality,they get told to do something and they do it no questions asked.From the many accounts we hear of locals saying we are behind the bombings,it wouldnt shock me as i know what out lads are like-I hope there not,but if they are who the hell is telling them to do this?

From todays NYPOST:


Guess where the cars were headed.......

August 2, 2007 -- A gang of auto thieves aimed to spread the luxury-car ownership experience abroad by shipping stolen high-end vehicles through New York's seaports to Greece, the Middle East and Africa, authorities said yesterday.

So to the posters who asked 'who would send cars oversees, where is the profit?'

There must be some.
