Basra: Another embarrassment to the “war on terror


Aljazeera.com

"What our police found in their car was very disturbing - weapons, explosives, and a remote control detonator. These are the weapons of terrorists. We believe these soldiers were planning an attack on a market or other civilian targets," Sheik Hassan al-Zarqani, spokesman for the Mehdi Army said.

What needs to be given more attention in the wake of recent clashes that broke out in Basra following the arrest of two British soldier last week is whether those commandos were planning an attack or not, whether their car did have explosives or not? The answer to this question is crucial for the future of Iraq and Bush's so-called “war on terror

Can't wait to see how the Bush propaganda machine spins this one.

These neocon bastards really need to be stopped if we expect to salvage any semblance of the Constitution, the freedom and the integrity that made this country great.

I've already talked to a couple of people this morning who had absolutely no clue about this story and were completely shocked. Like the story suggests, this is right up there with the DSM's.

Wonder if the Bushanistas will try to pan this as "old news" too.

GET THE WORD OUT! THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE TELEVISED!

Links to the above mentioned BBC and Washington Post pieces on the two under cover Brits, and this:

Pakistani military sources revealed in February 2005 that the US has "resolved to arm small militias backed by US troops and entrenched in the population," consisting of "former members of the Ba'ath Party" – the same people already teamed up with Zarqawi's al-Qaeda network.

In a highly clandestine operation, the US procured "Pakistan-manufactured weapons, including rifles, rocket-propelled grenade launchers, ammunition, rockets and other light weaponry." A Pakistani military analyst noted that the "arms could not be destined for the Iraqi security forces because US arms would be given to them." Rather, the US is playing a double-game to "head off" the threat of a "Shi’ite clergy-driven religious movement" – in other words, to exacerbate the deterioration of security by penetrating, manipulating and arming the terrorist insurgency.
