Hi Yakyaki, thats interesting. It could be a fake, except I have seen video on the news about it all shot yesterday, not everyone can be fooled. And I imagine that all the media there would pick up on it as well.

I think that maybe dates do grow there then?


Have you got a link to the picture?

BTW please do not post the same post more than once. Add some more to the post if you want to .

are you trying to say that there are photos that appear to be taken earlier this year? I thought it was hot in iraq all the time? You're response is a little difficult to read...I mean no offense by that...let me try to decipher it.

You saw pictures of saddam with soldiers and in the background there were Date Plam Trees that were full of dates....

you go on to say that in this time of year, "the winter" there shouldnt be dates on those tress at all.

If that is the case then that's pretty interesting! I'm curious about the pictures, can you post a link to them??

Its possible that he was caught earlier and kept for Intel reasons, but I doubt it. There is no more benefit catching him now, than there wouldve been then. Everything reported on when he was caught seems legit to me. I seen Bushs and Rumsfields faces after he was caught and TV and they can barely contain themselves.

What about making Bush's war look less fruitless right before election year?

Here is some info I found...
publicbroadcasting.net...

A tree can produce as much as a ton of fruit a year. The dates hang in as many as 20 large bunches, hundreds of dates per bunch. Although the trees fruit only once a season, the harvest lasts for months as the fruit ripens at varying speeds depending on where it is in the bunch. The center of the bunch, where it's warmest and most humid, ripens first, so the dates must be picked from the inside out.

My comment is most simply, this is a good quality ATS thread.

I would tend to support that "the dates are looking OK for December".


1. I don't read Arabic. What does the caption in the blown-up image say?

2. There is a purpose behind propaganda bringing to light exactly what has happened to Saddam Hussein since the illegal invasion of Iraq. The capture does look a bit Hollywood in its staging, like every other "milestone" event in the Iraq war.

It is a good time to not be in the Middle East or the US.

Fresh Dates at this time!!! ( means in December)
This what is wrote on the pic...

Ok, the other things you can see on the left dry meat ( I forgent name in English ) hanging on the rope.

Also this dry meat needs hot weather to be dried....
We know the weather in Iraq is cold now you can check for that.

Actually, there is a lot of benefit for the Bush Administration to catch Saddam now. Bush looks like a hero, at the present, for the capture of Saddam. It will boost his ratings. Now, within the next 8-10 months, the UN can install a govt there and Bush will send troops home, in time for the next election, making him look like a hero yet again. And who will win the election? Bush of course. This could not have happened at a better time for the Bush Administation.

In thinking about how the people in Alaska and other cold regions or in regions that have winters, I wondered how they outdoor cured their killed game or fish.....

Curing Meat: Using the old ways
Link:
www.sugarmountainhome.com...

Excerpt:
"we found that curing meat is not really that difficult. Meat should be cured when it's cold out, in November, December, or January. Here, it's usually too warm in November. In 1999, it was still too warm here in December. Cold weather is a must, unless you own a walk-in cooler or just have an extra refrigerator hanging around. In 1999/2000, we cured our hams and bacon in an extra refrigerator in the basement. This year, 2001, we are using the old ways, hanging in the tree in burlap bags.

There are two ways to cure meat, smoke and sugar cure. Temperature is one of the most important factors. Cold is a must, after slaughtering, before cutting the meat, and during smoking and curing. If a smokehouse gets much above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the heat will destroy the enzymes in the meat that develop the aged flavor."



This may solve the question of the hanging 'meat' or 'game' seen in the photograph.

Would have been better if Saddam was found dead. This could backfire on Bush just as easy.

And other sovereign nations under threat by PNAC and the Bush admin, lived happily ever after, in eternal admiration of the Bush admin and the US.

What a lovely fairy tale!

Actually, dates that are harvested in Iraq between the months June and early October. I'm not sure where it says what you quoted from the link that you gave, but I don't think that is the harvesting time in Iraq.I believe that is for the US. So, if they are harvested between June and October in Iraq, those trees should be empty or those dates should be dried up.

Quote from the source: Harvesting takes place during
the hottest period of the year, between late June and early October.

Which is found on page 50 from this link: History And Traditions Of Iraq

OH NO!!!!!

Now we have not only the DATES conspiracy....

we also have the DATES DISINFORMATION conspiracy.

Tragedy has befallen the safe capture of Saddam Hussein story AND the happy return of the Bush administration to righteous government of the almighty USA.

OH NO!!!!!!!!

The site said "In the Coachella Valley, dates ripen from late September through December and there are 6 to 8 pickings per palm." That is not the when they are picked in Iraq.

What a load of balogna.

And it seems we are starting to see the depth of some member's obsessions to their "conspiracy theories".

Do you think we'll be able to read the truth in the sausages???

Maybe...
