Which is most of the so called resistance, have you read any Al Queida (spelling) proaganda latley. Even they says its fighters from all over. But the Iraq Police .. ALL IRAQIES.


You are so naive believing "forein fighting resistance " do the fighting. Do not you know 80% of Iraqi police deserted and many joined the resistance taking the US supplied weapons.

Traitors are every where including Iraq.

When you say it is all propaganda, you are simply accepting only one side description of the war.

Saddam did have reactors he may not have had a nuclear weapons program (that is open to debate) but he had reactors ..Iran has a weapons program as does Pakistan and N Korea..Technology can be bought sold or transfered. Oh and perhaps you should do some reaserach on JATO/RATO it has been used since the 1920's no big Manhattan project needed to rocket launch a plane there was no feasable way to recover a RATO launched jet save an aircraft carrier so it was abandoned in favor of steam catapults. (BTW the whole plane scenario was a mcguffin but you in partisan efforts to prove your point you missed that, it could have been a friggin' midget sub I was trying to illustrate a point.) If the Beslin school attack was purley a Chechan issue why were there ARAB MUSLIMS amongst the terrorists? Has Checnia been repressed? YES Should they fight back? YES But why are non Chechan Arabs there except to elivate the level of terror.


and since when did 'the people' ever confer legitimacy upon a government preferred by an occupying power anywhere

Germany and Japan ???

Why are so many on the "insurgents" non Iraqis ?

The average Hussien Iraqi (as contrasted by Joe American) wants their country stable then want the American out in that order .....The problem is forgein Muslim extremeists. The Iraqis are the one who really suffer 10 innocent Iraqis die at the hand of the "insurgents" for every "Yankee Imperialist". When the Iraq's have had enough of those troops and stop turning a blind eye to them things will change. But to cut and run now will leave Iraq to become another Rwanda or Kosevo where old tribalism becomes the new ethnic cleasing.

let us follow your thoughts out to there logical conclustion.


- Good idea......but a lot of zcheng's stuff wasn't 'thoughts' it was information about events clearly not being reported in much of the western press.

Considering that information and why that is might be a good idea too, yes?


The US abandons the fledgling Iraqi government and pulls out. The country quickly factionalises and devolves to chaos. This creates a humanitarian nightmare but because of the factiona bloodshed no aid will get through people begin to die from starvation and other causes. Arab fighter who had come to Iraq to fight the US whip up more anti American fervor.


- I think much of what you fear happening here is what is now happening.

There is already chaos in large parts of Iraq, there is already a humanitarian nightmare and it would be hard for anti-US feeling to get much greater amongst many many Iraqis......and the truth is that much of the 'trouble' is not coming from outside, some is, but mostly it is Iraqis angry at the state of their shattered country. .


Those that feel betrayed by the US garner the shreds of Saddam's nuclear program and with help from Pakistan or Iran build an atomic bomb. They place one of Saddam's MiG 29's refurbished by Iran on a merchant vessel sail to about 1000 miles off the US coast using a pretext of heading to Cuba use rockets to launch the MiG on a one way mission to destroy a US city.


- I'm sorry but every once in a while someone writes something really really stupid on here and today this is it.

Give it up man. There is no Iraqi bomb, there never was an actual bomb nor nothing close to one. Had there been it would have been found by now; wake up.

There can be no cobbling of one together from 'secret hidden' parts, the 'secret, hidden' parts do not exist and the idea of a suck-it-and-see amatuer RATO (rocket assisted take off) launch of something like a Mig 29 (or any plane for that matter) from any old sizable boat, in secret, is so laughable as to be almost beyond belief.

Where did you get this idea from? Your military fan-pals at kindergarden?
Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Go look up the years the west's and the east's (Russians/WARPAC) airforces spent trying to work out a way of doing RATO and the specialist equipment used......and how it was extremely difficult, expensive, dangerous and, ultimately, not worth the bother.

No-one is 'just' going to manage it with sufficient rage and will-power, no matter how fanatical you fear and imagine them to be.


Still wanna pull out?


- What? You think you ludicrous scenario would have anyone change their mind?


Or shall we fight the Islamassists in THEIR yard not ours.


- That's what is being tried right now and it seems clear to me that you aren't feeling any safer for it, right?

......or do you just prefer to ignore this statement of the completely obvious?


Let non extreme Muslims come to power and establish a legitamit goverment


- generally speaking that is absolutely unlikely while a war is going on, wouldn't you say?

......and since when did 'the people' ever confer legitimacy upon a government preferred by an occupying power anywhere?


(yeah the US will need to shore it up for a while)


- If you mean it that's a slight understatement!


But do we bleed there or do our children bleed here. Look what happened in Russia.


- Hmmm. I would suggest that you find out a lot more about the historic relations between Chetchnya and Ingushetia before you buy this 'international Islamic threat' stuff wholesale.

Given the methods and actions Stalin used throughout the Crimea I'd say a lot more of it is down to the historic hatreds he sowed rather than any crap that this was anything like how it is being presented regarding Islam and Al Quada.

I dont mean to flame you man, really, but my 2cents/pennies is that your idea is completely off the wall absurd and you could do with some more thought, er, on second thoughts make that quite a bit more thought and research, about it all.

this is true ...The (excuse my spelling) al Sadr militia drew alot of them and the actually improved the neighborhoods they patroled ...for awhile then discipline broke down and they became a another gang. I think al Sadr has Iraq's best intrest at heart but his anti-western attitude has clouded his judgement . He is missing the oppertunity to become a major player in Iraq's future. If the al Sadr militia could be turned into a disciplined police force that would be a step in the right direction.

Again, I believe both parties put out propaganda, Only the blind say one side is right. This is where you come in. I understand your anger about it, I really do. But you have to realize in war BOTH sides are wrong and will NEVER tell you the Full story. But you must admit you are not hearing them say much about casualties, which in turn means the reports can only be half truths, and I am not saying the US doesn't do it, I AM saying this is a reality of War, How do you think the German people believed in what they did in WW2 (not comparing any side to them) But both sides know the impact of good propaganda on both recruitment and morale. And you should see this for what you see the US side of it as and look objectively instead of one sided

Resistance forces raid police station to free captive commanders.

The Resistance and the puppet police had carried on negotiations for the peaceful release of the captives, but the puppet police refused to budge, so 50 Resistance fighters attacked the police station at 10:50pm Baghdad time using rocket-propelled grenades, KBC machineguns, as well as other automatic weapons, and hand grenades.

Twenty puppet policemen were killed in the raid by preliminary count, and a part of the station was burned down completely. Four Landrover police cars were also destroyed. The Resistance fighters freed their commanders and left the police station ablaze.

A high-ranking US officer was thought to have been killed along with eight of his soldiers on Tuesday in battles in the Madinat as-Sadr section of Baghdad, according to the local correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam.

In the course of the fighting Jaysh al-Mahdi bomb exploded, killing five Americans in their Humvee. Three other American troops were killed when a rocket struck them at 7:00am. Four Bradley armored vehicles were destroyed but resulted in no casualties. Sources told the Mafkarat al-Islam reporter about their belief that a high- ranking US officer had been among the dead. Their evidence for that belief was that one of the Humvees destroyed during the day was an armored, closed and air-conditioned vehicle – a type they find used only by senior officers in US military practice.

Battles in Madinat as-Sadr continued into the night Tuesday. At 5:00pm local time the fighting resumed and continued until after midnight according to the local correspondent. One American soldier was reported captured and US F-16 fighter bombers pounded the city intensively together with Apache helicopters.

So you can cut and paste propaganda what is your point Goebels Jr?

Yep, they might be juicing it up as much as our guys do. Nobody wants to come out on the losing end so they write what's necessary to make it pallatable to the citizenry. These reports are probably just as full of crap as ours are.

You are so naive believing "forein fighting resistance " do the fighting. Do not you know 80% of Iraqi police deserted and many joined the resistance taking the US supplied weapons.

Traitors are every where including Iraq.

When you say it is all propaganda, you are simply accepting only one side description of the war.

that may be true; many iraqis oppose the coalition
I don't want to be arrogant but you've made several mistakes in your english

as does Pakistan


- Yeah thanks in part to the USA that is true......a handy counterbalance in the region what with India and China having them, right? But don't worry just like with Israel you US guys like those nukes, they're ok ones.


and N Korea.


- Yeah maybe they do.....and thanks to such an aggressive approach in dealing with them it'll be about a thousand times harder to get them to give them up too.


Technology can be bought sold or transfered.


- That it can......and what?

It is one hell of a leap to imply from this that it means your scenario of someone 'just' getting hold of a nuke and - somehow - attacking a US city is plausible.


Oh and perhaps you should do some reaserach on JATO/RATO it has been used since the 1920's no big Manhattan project needed to rocket launch a plane there was no feasable way to recover a RATO launched jet save an aircraft carrier so it was abandoned in favor of steam catapults.


- The blyth terms in which you suggested this as 'just' something that 'might' happen were absurdly simplistic and I said so, sorry if that bothered you so much.

Attaching a handful of rockets to a jet and just expecting it to work cos someone else once did it (at great expense and after much work/testing) is hardly convincing; at all.

Dont blame me, you said it.


(BTW the whole plane scenario was a mcguffin but you in partisan efforts to prove your point you missed that, it could have been a friggin' midget sub I was trying to illustrate a point.)


- Yeah but even if it had been a midget sub the idea is still rather childishly absurd. Sorry but it just is.

......and anyway why raise such daft ideas if you're just speculating - on such a serious subject too?

There are no secret parts hidden and waiting to be snuck anywhere anyhow to 'bomb' a US city.


If the Beslin school attack was purley a Chechan issue why were there ARAB MUSLIMS amongst the terrorists?


- For the same reason that 'terrorist goups' around the world have had links for decades. They cooperate and there undoubtedly is a Muslim dimention to the Chetchyn conflict - I didn't deny that did I?

I was merely adding the matter of Ingustetia which is absolutely germane to the issue......not that you'd get half a clue about any of that from the mainstream media stories, right?


Has Checnia been repressed? YES Should they fight back? YES But why are non Chechan Arabs there except to elivate the level of terror.


- I suggest a degree of solidarity exists. Chetchyns probably exchange captured technology for help like this from time to time.


and since when did 'the people' ever confer legitimacy upon a government preferred by an occupying power anywhere?
...............Germany and Japan ???


- Oh please.

This conflict is nothing like WW2 and attempting to see it in those terms is to utterly misunderstand what is going on.


Why are so many on the "insurgents" non Iraqis ?


- Partly IMO because the 'idiot in chief' made really really stupid cretinous comments about 'crusades' which could then be truthfully beamed around the Islamic world galvanising support for the extremists.


The average Hussien Iraqi (as contrasted by Joe American) wants their country stable then want the American out in that order .....The problem is forgein Muslim extremeists.


- Yeah well you carry on telling all and sundry what you think the Iraqi people want because you sure as hell aren't getting many regular Iraqis telling about it are you?


The Iraqis are the one who really suffer 10 innocent Iraqis die at the hand of the "insurgents" for every "Yankee Imperialist". When the Iraq's have had enough of those troops and stop turning a blind eye to them things will change.


- You sound just like some of the people in Britain did about the IRA. It's garbage and it most certainly doesn't work like that. The fact is they want the occupying forces out......everything else will flow from that, not the other way round.


But to cut and run now will leave Iraq to become another Rwanda or Kosevo where old tribalism becomes the new ethnic cleasing.


- Frankly I am not for an instant pull-out, I'd prefer a phased withdrawl.

I realise it would create great difficulties.....hell, the whole thing should have been seen for the mess it would become before any of this started.

But, claiming 'humanitarian reasons' for engaging in this mess is a tad rich IMO. Saddam was a scumbag but he was contained. Open your eyes, this is not better it's worse, unbelievably and very sadly.

.....and the behaviour of the troops needs to improve a hell of a lot for thigs to have any chance of not going belly-up. Trained police and defence force Iraqis are going over to the so-called 'insurgents' daily and troops are withdrawing from areas, leaving them to the Iraqis/'insurgents'.

For as long as priorites are to build massive military bases whilst the country is in ruins it is only going to be impossible to convince regular Iraqis that the US is interested in anything butit's own interests.

This is not an improving situation. Face it. Sooner or later the prospect will be one of attempting a 'Vietnam' (lavishly arming the new regime to the teeth and hoping they can handle things......and even if successful is that a 'hello new Saddam'?) or pulling right out.

You 'keep the faith' on this if you like; my money is on a British withdrawl by spring/summer next year and a US one soon after......unless Bush wins the election and decides to plough on regardless.

Unless you're there witnessing it, how do you know it's more accurate and without spin? How is using the smear description "puppet" every time the Iraqi government is mentioned able to be designated as being "without spin"?

They all spin. They all fudge. They tell what they need to tell in the way they need to tell it to keep everybody on their side. Every side does this.

WTF???

It was one hell of a leap of faith that 19 guys with box cutters could bring down the WTC.


Attaching a handful of rockets to a jet and just expecting it to work cos someone else once did it (at great expense and after much work/testing) is hardly convincing; at all.

It's not nearly as complicated as one would imagine...read up on the Brits durring WWII they perfectedit on a shoesting budget.

......and anyway why raise such daft ideas if you're just speculating - on such a serious subject too?

There are no secret parts hidden and waiting to be snuck anywhere anyhow to 'bomb' a US city.


ok then on a container in as contaner ship? Is that more to your liking?
For all I friggin care they could build a human chain and pass it along like a "hot potato". The method was not the point. The point is this has been the goal of terrorists for years.


They cooperate and there undoubtedly is a Muslim dimention to the Chetchyn conflict - I didn't deny that did I?
No, but that changes the dimentions drasticly, it is no longer the downtrodded fighting for their rights anymore is it.



I was merely adding the matter of Ingustetia which is absolutely germane to the issue......not that you'd get half a clue about any of that from the mainstream media stories, right?
no I think this changes it from a Chechan issue to a world issue, but mind you the world DOES need to learn more about the WHOLE of the conflict.



- I suggest a degree of solidarity exists. Chetchyns probably exchange captured technology for help like this from time to time.
please!!!!!


I'll give you Japan was a poor example but Germany is a strong comparison.


- Partly IMO because the 'idiot in chief' made really really stupid cretinous comments about 'crusades' which could then be truthfully beamed around the Islamic world galvanising support for the extremists.
better to fight in their yard than yours.





- Yeah well you carry on telling all and sundry what you think the Iraqi people want because you sure as hell aren't getting many regular Iraqis telling about it are you?


go out and read some blogs that is the feeling I get This is also what I get from my freinds that are there.





- Frankly I am not for an instant pull-out, I'd prefer a phased withdrawl.

well we agree on one thing


For as long as priorites are to build massive military bases whilst the country is in ruins it is only going to be impossible to convince regular Iraqis that the US is interested in anything butit's own interests.

Brutal pre-dawn US rocket attack kills 11, wounds 20 Iraqi civilians in al-Fallujah.
US rocket attacks on houses in al-Fallujah Thursday morning left 10 Iraqi civilians dead and 20 others wounded according to the local correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam in that city. Six men, two women and four children were killed in the savage US attack, one of the children only eight months old. Twenty other persons were wounded in the US attack, most of them women and children.

Most of the casualties were members of Muhammad `Ali al-Aswad al- Hawmazawi's family. Muhammad `Ali al-Aswad himself was killed as were two of his four wives, one of them 25 years old, the other 30. Four of his 12 children were killed and five of his other children were taken to hospitals in Baghdad for treatment of their very serious wounds. Five other relatives were killed in the US airstrike. Eight-year-old Jasim was admitted to hospital with severe head injuries and required an delicate operation, but until late Thursday night the hospital was refusing to carry out the surgery without signed authorization from a family member, despite the fact that all the adult family members had been killed in the air raid.

Eye witnesses reported that the American attack took place at 4:00am (Baghdad time), but that it was not until 8:30 in the morning that the last victim – the eight month old infant – was dug out of the rubble. The correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam took part along with family members in the rescue and recovery effort in the wreckage.

As usual, the US tried to justify its indiscriminate airstrike on women and children by claiming that they were trying to kill followers of the elusive Abu Mus`ab az-Zarqawi.

Resistance shells US positions near al-Fallujah around midnight Thursday-Friday.

Iraqi Resistance forces rained some 20 artillery shells on the US military camp in the ash-Shuhadà area of al-Fallujah at about midnight Thursday-Friday, the local correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam reported. Iraqi puppet troops then deployed around the camp in an attempt to locate and silence the source of the shelling.

Resistance forces unleashed a barrage of some 55 mortar shells on the area north of al-Fallujah where US forces were bivouacked. According to the local correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam who reported the bombardment at 2:15am Friday morning, the situation around midnight Thursday-Friday had become extremely tense and apprehensive after US aircraft were seen prowling the skies over the city – a sign that some sort of offensive might be imminent.

Resistance hits US column in al-Khalidiyah mid-morning Thursday.
Iraqi Resistance forces in al-Khalidiyah attacked a US column at 10:30am Thursday, Baghdad time. The attack took place behind the police station in the city and left one Abrams tank totally destroyed when it ran over an Iraqi Resistance bomb. The power of the blast suggested that it was what is known as an Austrian explosive – a product of re-engineered artillery shell explosives of Austrian manufacture.

The local correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the bomb was hidden with great expertise. Two Humvees were also destroyed in the same attack, but they were struck by Resistance rocket-propelled grenades.

The correspondent, who was unable to visit the scene of the attack personally due to a curfew imposed by US occupation forces, received information on the attack from a member of the al-Khalidiyah police force. That source said that six US troops were killed aboard the tank, three more aboard the first Humvee. Two other Americans on the Humvee were seriously wounded. Four Americans were killed aboard the second Humvee, and, the source said, they appear to have been killed by an anti-personnel rocket-propelled grenade, whose destructive radius is 300 meters in all directions.

Local residents reported felling a violent explosion shake their neighborhood when the bomb that destroyed the tank detonated.

Seven Americans killed in az-Za`faraniyah area in two attacks Thursday morning.

An Iraqi Resistance bomb exploded under a US military column as it passed over the old Diyala Bridge in the az-Za`faraniyah area at 9:00am Thursday morning. One US Humvee was destroyed and eyewitnesses said they saw two charred bodies pulled from the wreckage of the vehicle, and that two other bodies lay outside the car.

An Iraqi Resistance bomb blew up under a group of US intelligence officers in a GMC vehicle at 6:30am Thursday in the same area. The local correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the blast blew away all but the chassis of the vehicle and killed three American intelligence officers.

US savages civilian homes in Tall az-Za`far area with cluster bombs, and follow up with a ground assault. Resistance fighters hold their ground.

US aircraft carried out repeated raids on Thursday, savagely pounding the area of Tall az-Za`far. After the air attacks, US ground forces assaulted the region. The local correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the US fighter planes dropped container bombs that explode in the air and release hundreds of deadly anti-personnel cluster bombs.

The Americans dropped the lethal weapons on residential areas populated by Iraqi civilians. The correspondent reported that the vicious bombing came to a halt around 3:00pm Baghdad time. The Iraqi Resistance forces in the area hung on determinedly, however in the face of US ground assaults, inflicting heavy casualties on the invaders.

The correspondent wrote that some Iraqi shepherds reported seeing two US warplanes shot down, one of them in flames. The shepherd said, however, that American ground forces immediately surrounded the wreck sites and no one was allowed to approach the area, making it impossible for the correspondent to verify or provide further details regarding their report.

Three intelligence officers killed in Resistance attack in al- Hurriyah section of Baghdad.

An Iraqi Resistance fighter on Thursday morning fired a rocket- propelled grenade (RPG) at a motorcade of US GMC vehicles – the sort regularly used by US intelligence officers – in the ad-Dawla`i section of the al-Hurriyah area of Baghdad. The local correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam reported on visiting the scene of the attack that the RPG set one car ablaze and three US offices killed in it. Three other American GMC vehicles fled the scene

Resistance pounds US facilities in the Baghdad area Thursday.

During the morning of Thursday, Iraqi Resistance forces pounded various US sites throughout occupied Iraq with mortars and rockets.

The Baghdad correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the puppet police academy behind the puppet "interior ministry" building, came under an intense Resistance barrage. More that 15 explosions shook the building, apparently from 120mm mortar shells or Katyusha rockets. Plumes of thick smoke could be seen rising over the academy at 8:00am local time.

Five violent blasts rocked the US occupation headquarters in the Republican Palace compound (which the Americans have renamed "the green zone") at about 7:00am as Katyusha rockets fired by the Resistance crashed into the top security area.

Fierce fighting in Baghdad.

The local correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the battles broke out on Hayfa Street, about 2,800 meters from the top security US “green zone.” The battles that continued for several hours left one American tank destroyed and at least five US troops dead.

Four Apache helicopters gave cover to US assaults from the air.

The Mafkarat al-Islam correspondent, himself sealed off on the street, reported that the US helicopters were firing at anything that moved in the street, and that so far they had shot dead 12 Iraqi civilians, including women and children.

Snipers were at work too from their perch atop the Saddam Medical Center building.

As he contributed his report, posted at 3:30pm Mecca time (4:30pm Baghdad time) the correspondent wrote that because of the intense American sniper fire, none of the local people dared approach the bodies of the two children that still lay in the street.

Firefighters struggled to put out the blaze after the attack near Bayji, 155 miles north of Baghdad. Crude oil cascaded down the hillside into the river. Fire burned atop the water, fueled by the gushing oil.

Bayji is the point where several oil pipelines converge, said Lieutenant Colonel Lee Morrison of the US Army Corps of Engineers.

One of them apparently was a domestic pipeline that fed a local power plant. The explosion set off a fire that melted cables and led to the power outage, electricity officials said. “Bayji is the chokepoint,” Morrison told the US Associated Press (AP). “It's so easy to hit.”

Eight US troops reported killed in ar-Ramadi as Resistance executes spy in the city.

At least eight US troops were reported killed on Wednesday evening in ar-Ramadi, west of Baghdad.

Sharp battles erupt in ar-Ramadi Wednesday night. US pushes fresh Korean soldiers to front lines.

Fierce fighting broke out in ar-Ramadi, west of Baghdad, at about 8:30pm Wednesday night centered around The 1920 Revolution Street and the city’s industrial zone. The battles were still raging when the local correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam posted his report at 9:35pm local time (8:35pm Mecca time).

The correspondent wrote that US troops were using armored vehicles and Abrams tanks and received air support from Apache helicopters. The helicopters strafe and shell from a distance out of fear of being shot down by Resistance anti-aircraft missiles.

Resistance fighters were using medium BKCs and rocket-propelled grenades – both the anti-tank and anti-personnel type.

The correspondent reports that south Korean troops who recently arrived in Baghdad are taking part in the battle. These men have spent less than two weeks in Iraq before being sent to the front lines in ar-Ramadi by their American masters, eager to reduce US casualties as the American elections approach. The Mafkarat al-Islam correspondent reports, however, that the Americans have done the Koreans a great disservice by not allowing them to adjust gradually from the more “secure” to the “least secure” parts of rebellious Iraq, and they have now proven to be easy targets for the seasoned and resourceful Resistance fighters of the area.

Fierce fighting rages in ar-Ramadi US, south Koreans killed, captured.

Fierce fighting broke out on Thursday morning between Iraqi Resistance forces and US occupation troops in the city of ar-Ramadi west of occupied Baghdad. The local correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the fighting erupted at about 7:00am local time and was still raging when he filed his report, which was posted at 12:55 local time (11:55 Mecca time) on the Mafkarat al-Islam website. There have been several casualties among the joint US-south Korean forces, he reported.

At the moment of writing, American snipers were deploying atop buildings in the area of The 1920 Revolution Street and on the roof of the governorate building. For their part Iraqi Resistance sharpshooters have taken up various positions in defense of the city.

An informed source told Mafkarat al-Islam that during the last three days of combat, Resistance fighters had captured a number of US occupation troops and south Korean soldiers. The Resistance had also taken possession of a Humvee and driven it off to an unknown location.

Iraqi sources report that operations of the Resistance now being carried out in ar-Ramadi are of a different type than those mounted earlier. The Resistance in nearby al-Fallujah are blocking and smashing any American attacks forcing them to withdraw. But the Resistance in ar-Ramadi are waging a protracted war of attrition, they say, trying to draw in the occupation troops, giving them the illusion that they have won and then springing sudden surprise attacks on them that inflict large-scale losses in their forces.

The correspondent noted that the largest movement of US supply convoys and patrols are now those headed for ar-Ramadi.


Resistance rocket assault timed for changing of the guard yields large numbers of US casualties east of ar-Ramadi Thursday morning.

A large number of American troops were killed and wounded and more than eight US Humvees were destroyed when the Iraqi Resistance launched a surprise rocket attack on an American camp east of ar-Ramadi at 8:00am Thursday morning. The local correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the Resistance timed their attack to coincide with the changing of the guard and forces at the base that formerly served Iraqi special forces. Because of the timing of the attack, a large number of Americans were present and exposed when the powerful Grad rockets crashed into the camp.


At least 13 US troops reported killed in two Iraqi Resistance actions in the al-Fallujah area on Thursday.

At 9:00am, a US patrol in the village of Zawba’, south of al-Fallujah, came under an attack in which one Humvee was destroyed and three American troops killed and two others severely injured, lying on the ground for a long period of time, according to villagers who witnessed the incident.

At 2:00pm a series of bombs exploded under US column on the highway east of al-Fallujah. The explosives were extremely powerful and therefore were likely of the Austrian type – bombs made from the explosive material contained in artillery shells manufactured in Austria. Four Humvees were destroyed in the attack. Eyewitnesses were able to see 10 body bags carrying the corpses of US troops before the Americans drove them away from the scene of the attack a mere five minutes after it occurred. It is possible, therefore, that there were even more casualties in the attack


Five American troops killed near al-Fallujah Thursday morning.

The al-Qa’im correspondent of Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the two injured soldiers appeared to be severely wounded, which he said was not surprising considering that nothing remained of the Humvee other than its wrecked skeleton.

In a dispatch posted at 7:30pm Mecca time Thursday, Mafkarat al-Islam apologized to readers for delays in its Iraq coverage starting Wednesday night.

The website reports that those men had worked bringing together and transmitting reports from northern, eastern, and southern Iraq, and that their arrest has for several hours affected the website’s ability to cover events in the country.


Iraqi Resistance liquidates leading collaborator in the Badr Brigades.

‘Amir Karim the “interior minister” within the Badr Brigades Shi‘i chauvinist and collaborationist militia organization, was assassinated by the Iraqi Resistance on a Baghdad street at 4:00pm Thursday afternoon local time.

With US huge losses everyday as reported above, US total defeat in Iraq maybe only months away. The question is whether it will happen before Nov 2 election, or after that. My guess is that it will happen after that. Bush/Cheney will try everything for American people to get the truth, and delay the disclosure of truth losses in Iraq.

The best strategy for US is to withdraw at an orderly pace, and bring those still alive safe back to home and their families. Time is limited, and the final days are coming.

You really don;t know what you're talking about. As soon as the US leaves you can be damn sure the Shia and Sunni will fight each other. As for the Kurds killing both, that's ridiculous. It is the Kurds who have suffered most from the others.

Who said there will be civil war? Ask Iraqi people, not by accepting whatever Fox, CNN, BBC tell you!

Both Sunni and Shia are help each other now. There will be disturbance, but not civil war. Kurds might be different, since they are still killing Sunni and Shia people along with US.
