Multiple reports are coming out from Iraq today concerning the massacre of up to 100 teenagers deemed to be "adulterers, Satanists, vampires and sexually depraved". In addition, the Iraqi Ministry Of Interior issued a press release (available on their website) authorizing the elimination of "emos", "satanists", etc.


Reports Of Emo Youth And LGBT People ‘Being massacred in Iraq’
By Dan Littauer - March 9, 2012
www.pinknews.co.uk...

"Moral panic has been stirred up by militias about emo youth for the last year, alleging they are adulterers, Satanists, vampires and sexually depraved.

An Iraqi source has testified to Gay Middle East (GME) that militias had warned emo youth and LGBT people that they would kill them a month ago. Posters containing the threats were put in cafés and on street corners in Baghdad.

In Baghdad local media reported massacres of emo youth and LGBT people occurring in the districts of Sadr, Chaala, Albaladiat, Baghdad Al-Jadedah, Karadah and Kadhymia. The number of victims claimed ranges from 56 to 100."

"A few further notes on the Emo killings. Al Mada reports that lists specifically of youth who are believed to be Emo have been posted on walls in Sadr City as well as the Shula and Kādhimayn neighborhoods — all heavily Shi’ite districts — with threats to kill them. An anonomous official in the Sadr City municipal court told the newspaper that killers have the names of the names of young people who are Emo stored on their cellphones, to help “liquidate” them."

Umm... Is this the same Iraq we paid a trillion bucks and lost thousands of soldiers to "liberate?"

Is this the policy of the new "democratically-elected" government with which we have "warm ties" of allegiance and friendship?

Do any of the "security consultants" imported from other nations 'participate' in the execution of this policy?

Is this propaganda? Please say it is.....

ETA: Looks like this is being reported on Iraqi TV and Media and has various levels of official recognition as happening.... now... where was I.....

Are we learning yet?

Let me guess another planned hit?

This is fake or a veiled threat.
What does a iraqi know about emos or gay/lesbian people?
This is someone else who does know. Al-cia-da maybe?

The Iraq Government’s Jihad against… Emo’s?
March 9, 2012

iamiranaware.wordpress.com...

"Activists told the Cairo-based al-Akhbar daily that at least 90 Iraqi teenagers with “emo” appearances have been stoned to death by the Moral Police in the country in the past month. The violent crackdown against “emo” Iraqi teenagers came after the Iraqi interior ministry declared them as “devil worshippers.”

“The ‘Emo phenomenon’ or devil worshiping is being probed by the Moral Police who have the approval to eliminate it as soon as possible since it’s detrimentally affecting the society and becoming a danger,” a statement by the Interior Ministry said."

"Activists said that leaflets were distributed in Baghdad warning teenagers from donning the “emo” style, and in some regions, teenage homosexuals were killed by battering their heads also by concrete blocks."

Killing emos because their emo is so emo.

I don't really get the whole emo thing but I believe the above statement works.

Hardly.

But if it turns out that the "emos" and the "vampires" are really being rounded up for the slaughter, then I would say America's decade-long war in that country to free the people from a "madman" was an exercise in futility and we should keep our nose out of the business of other countries from here on out.

No offense, OP, but those videos do little to support your thread here on ATS since they are not in English and have no translation accompanying them. What makes you think we can understand the content?

Official Press Release - Iraqi Ministry Of Interior
Interior Waging A Campaign To Eliminate The (EMO)
February 13, 2012


See Image Link On Initial Post

The Director of Community Police of the Ministry of the Interior: to the phenomenon of "EMO" or Satanists, follow-up by them, and they have official approval to eliminate them as soon as possible, because the dimensions of the community began to take another course, and is now threatening danger.

It is noteworthy that the phenomenon of "EMO" derived from the word "emotional" in English, is experiencing is widespread among adolescents, not at the level of Iraq, but the majority of communities, and rely on appearance and movements as a means to express their feelings and embodiment Aradathm in behavior and outlook on life.

Said Colonel Mushtaq student Muhammadawi: EMO phenomenon discovered by members of the Directorate in the capital Baghdad, has been studied and prepared reports and research them and raised to the Ministry of the Interior to obtain the approvals to follow up this case and how to eliminate them.

He added that the Ministry of the Interior took the side of this importance and priority was obtaining the approval of the Ministry of Education specifically for the preparation of an integrated plan Bahrafa personally, and let we enter all of the schools in the capital.

He continued, was marking some cases the spread of the phenomenon and specifically in the schools of Baghdad, but we face great difficulty represented by the lack of a feminist cadre in the district so that we can follow up some of the details, especially as the phenomenon spread more among girls ages 14 to 18 years.

Indicating the following: they wear strange clothes and tight and the graphics like skulls, and use the tools of school in the form of skulls, and put the earrings in their noses and their tongues and other manifestations of the exotic.

While I am totally against all of our "liberation" activities, and I'd rather see us concentrate at home, I still have to point out that change doesn't happen overnight. This is an extremely religously hostile area. It took us over 100 years to get rid of slavery, and another 100 years for civil rights to take effect, and it has been 50 years and we still have the occasional hate crime against homosexuals or minorities. We are still debating gay marriage, and we are still debating homosexuals in the military.

It seems pretty presumptious and arrogant to criticize what is happening there when we have only recently begun to "westernize" their culture or institute a form of Democracy.

When the US gets everything right at home, then we can criticize what the Iraqi religious nuts are doing.

That must be why we've been delivering Democracy there and "less" bloodshed for how long now...

since 11 years?

You should have seen the place before it was bombed back to the 1st Century, the beauty was actually breath taking.

Just sayin'.

I get what you're saying. Of course, the whole "westernization" thing carries a regional stigma reminiscent of the installation of the Shah, which could be said to have had a major influence on anti-western sentiment in the first place.

Ultimately these cultures will have to resolve their social agendas without 'western' assistance if they are going to ever claim ownership of the change.

No one forced the United States to revolutionize the slave industry, or acknowledge the legitimacy of 'universal human rights' so I think that may account for the time it took for entrenched bias to dissipate. Conversely, had we been 'civilized' (so to speak) by the imposition of a foreign power, things might be somewhat different right now....

We still have our own fair share of fundamentalist "issues" remaining well supported both within and outside of governance. But I don't think we would be very appreciative or even receptive to other nations deciding they had the authority and "permission" to impose their values on us.

Still, patience has it merits... but I have a few "emo" friends who I would want to protect from harm - despite the idea that their 'exotic' 'foreign' affectations offended my neighbors....

The funny thing is... if you're hanging by your fingers and about to fall to your death; would the provincial conservative refuse any help from an 'emo' or a gay person... or even an "American" because they are "Western?" Sadly, I suspect some would.

Don't confuse the place with the people in charge... by that metric many of us (in different countries) are living in hell, ruled by demons...

I suspect some would too. Cut off one's nose to spite their face, as my Mom used to say.

Yes, I agree that "liberating" the Iraqi people was a mistake from the very start. There lives are no better today than they were 20 years ago before the first invasion. There are places in the world with on-going genocides and we turn a blind eye, but we felt it was an emergency to get into Iraq, and probably Iran before long.


The old adage is that the US has never been attacked by a country with a McDonalds's...... or Disneyland, or Air-Conditioning? or something like that.
So I suppose the sooner we corrupt all their youth with video games, instant gratification, porn, and pop culture, the sooner we can sleep safely in our beds at night. Or at least that seems to be the Conservative Mantra displayed throughout this Republican Primary season.
