  • They are hanging bodies off bridges

    4 civilians murdered and their bodies desecrated, hanging from
    a bridge.

    Ready to take the gloves off yet? If not, how many bodies will it take?

    Where?

    Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

      Iraq

      Our forefathers died to give us freedom, not free stuff.

        4 US civilians
        In some shitty town in Iraq.

        Murdered and bodies dragged from the car.

        A crowd of Iraqi civilians cheered the perps that did it on.
        They thought it was great fun.

          This is not going to be good for anybody....


          NBC, MSNBC and news services
          Updated: 3:35 p.m. ET March 31, 2004BAGHDAD, Iraq - In one of the bloodiest and most horrifying days since the end of the U.S.-led war in Iraq, five U.S. troops and four American civilian contractors were killed in separate attacks in the Sunni Triangle west of Baghdad. After an ambush on two vehicles carrying the civilian contractors in Fallujah, jubilant Iraqis burned and mutilated the dead, then dragged two corpses through the streets and hung them from a bridge spanning the Euphrates River.

          The brutal treatment of the bodies occurred after the contractors were killed in a rebel attack on their two SUVs in the city about 35 miles west of Baghdad, scene of some of the worst violence on both sides of the conflict since the beginning of the American occupation a year ago.

          Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt said at a briefing in Baghdad that it was not known what the coalition contractors were doing in Fallujah — apparently without a military escort — when the attack occurred.



          U.S. officials, who spoke with NBC News on condition of anonymity, said that all four contractors were Americans who worked for Blackwater USA of Moyock, N.C. The officials did not confirm reports from the scene that a woman was among the dead.

          Blackwater USA supplies security guards to the Coalition Provisional Authority and has provided protection for Iraq administrator L. Paul Bremer, among other coalition officials.



          In a statement, the company said, "Early evidence indicates that Blackwater personnel may have been the targets of the attack." It said it was seeking additional information.

          The statement also said that some personnel had been "providing convoy security for food deliveries in the Fallujah area."

          The killings of the contractors came shortly after five U.S. troops died when their military vehicle ran over a bomb in Malahma, about 12 miles to the northwest of Fallujah, among the reed-lined roads through some of Iraq’s richest farmland.

          Pentagon officials said the victims were from the Army's lst Infantry Division, but had no other details on the attack.

          White House spokesman Scott McLellan condemned the "horrific, despicable attacks," but said they would not shake U.S. plans to hand over power in Iraq to some sort of transitional Iraqi government by June 30.

          The enemies of the Iraqi people are trying to shake our will," he said. "They cannot."

          The attack in Fallujah was reminiscent of the 1993 scene in Somalia, when a mob dragged the corpse of a U.S. soldier through the streets of Mogadishu, a brutal scene that played a role in eventually leading to the American withdrawal from the African nation.

          Chanting “Fallujah is the graveyard of Americans,” residents cheered after the grisly assault on two four-wheel-drive civilian vehicles, which left both in flames. Others chanted, “We sacrifice our blood and souls for Islam.”

          Associated Press Television News pictures showed one man beating a charred corpse with a metal pole. Others tied a yellow rope to a body, hooked it to a car and dragged it down the main street of town. Two blackened and mangled corpses were hung from a green iron bridge across the Euphrates.



          “The people of Fallujah hanged some of the bodies on the old bridge like slaughtered sheep,” resident Abdul Aziz Mohammed said. Some of the corpses were dismembered, he said.

          Beneath the bodies, a man held a printed sign with a skull and crossbones and the phrase “Fallujah is the cemetery for Americans.”

          APTN showed the charred remains of three slain men. Some were wearing flak jackets, said resident Safa Mohammedi.

          Dog tags, American passports shown
          One resident displayed what appeared to be dog tags taken from one body. Residents also said there were weapons in the targeted cars. APTN showed one American passport near a body and a U.S. Department of Defense identification card belonging to another man.




          Witnesses said the two vehicles were attacked with small arms fire and rocket propelled grenades.

          Hours after the attack, the city was quiet. No U.S. troops or Iraqi police were seen in the area.

          Support for toppled Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was strong in Fallujah, and rebels often carry out attacks against American forces there.

          Kimmitt, at the news briefing, said that a small minority of the city’s population is responsible for the attacks.

          “There is small core element that doesn’t seem to get it,” he said. “... They are desperate to turn back the hands of time and that just isn’t gong to happen.”

          There were other attacks on U.S. forces and Iraqi government personnel on Wednesday.

          Grenade thrown at government building
          In Ramadi, insurgents threw a grenade at a government building and Iraqi security forces returned fire Wednesday, witnesses said. It was not clear if there were casualties.

          Also in Ramadi, a roadside bomb exploded near a U.S. convoy, witnesses said. U.S. officials in Baghdad could not confirm the attack.



          One U.S. soldier was killed and another wounded in a roadside bombing Tuesday in the same area, according to Kimmitt.

          In all, at least 597 U.S. troops have died in Iraq since the war began March 20, 2003. Of the total, 459 have died since May 1, when Bush flew onto an aircraft carrier off the California coast to declare the end of major combat.

          In the deadliest previous incident this year, nine soldiers were killed when their Black Hawk medevac helicopter crashed near Fallujah, apparently after being shot down.

          Northeast of Baghdad, in the city of Baqouba on Wednesday, a suicide bomber blew up explosives in his car when he was near a convoy of government vehicles, wounding 14 Iraqis and killing himself, officials said.

          The attacked convoy is normally used to transport the Diala provincial governor, Abdullah al-Joubori, but he was elsewhere at the time, said police Col. Ali Hossein.

          On Tuesday, a suicide bombing outside the house of a police chief in Hillah, about 60 miles south of Baghdad, killed the attacker and wounded seven others.

          A bomb exploded late Tuesday in a movie theater that had closed for the night. Two bystanders were wounded by flying glass, said its owner, Ghani Mohammed.

          The latest violence came two days after Carina Perelli, the head of a U.N. electoral team, said better security is vital if Iraq wants to hold elections by a Jan. 31 deadline. The polls are scheduled to follow a June 30 transfer of sovereignty to an Iraqi government.

          Top U.S. administrator L. Paul Bremer said Tuesday he had appointed 21 anti-corruption inspectors general to government departments to try to prevent fraud. More will be named in coming days, he said.

          The inspectors will work with two other newly formed, independent agencies. Together, they will “form an integrated approach intended to combat corruption at every level of government across the country,” Bremer said.

            Ever wonder why we (US and UK) bothered to try and help these people?

              There is really only one way to deal with this type of mentality.
              I am afraid the people running the war on our side, simply
              are NOT capable of making the hard decisions.

                    It's not just the resources.

                    It was also for safety. I don't give a SH#T what other people say....the man had WMD and had even used them. He could not be allowed to remain in power. PERIOD. He financed Terrorists. He could not be allowed to remain in power. PERIOD. He attempted genocide over another race. He could not be allowed to remain in power....PERIOD.

                    YEAH YEAH YEAH....all the whiners and hanky stompers will cry and say that nobody found any WMD.....DUH!!!!! HE hid them...probably in Syria or in the sand or both. If you believe he didn't have them, you're a fool!

                    Another Reason we (US/UK) do these things is that we're decent (or at least try to be) people/nations. Sometimes somebody has to act as the "world's" police. It used to involve the Soviet Union and China....but now, no one has the balls to do it....except the US/UK.

                    There is really only one way to deal with this type of mentality.
                    Irreverent speaks the truth...and I've said it before.....An eye for an eye....but "decent" people just can't seem to get past the nasty stuff. Until we do, we're going to lose more people in this nasty war. But that doesn't mean that we should quit. Somebody has to do it and we've taken on the responsability once again....but thank god for our allies.

                      Yeah, right on man! I mean, I don’t know about you, but my gas prices are sure lower thanks to this War for Oil. </sarcasm>

                      Sheesh, give me a break... or, at least post one shred of evidence that all the loopy lefty theories about the war being about oil are actually true.
                      Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated... again...

                        Am I pissed about this? [email protected]% yeah!! Should we retaliate? Yes we should, and like others have said, with gloves off!! But let's not forget two things:

                        1. The people running the show in Iraq are the same ones who are charging US servicemen and/or women for infractions to their code of conduct for "mistreating" terrorists; and

                        2. My deepest sympathies and sorrow goes to the families and friends of those four killed and to the 597 servicemen/women killed over there. I can't even begin to imagine what it must be for those families, seeing what might be their husbands, sons, fathers bodies. My thoughts go with them.

                          This morning i awoke before the alarm went off. Something did not feel right.
                          Went to bathroom and washed out my mouth, spashed cold water on my face and stood there looking into a mirror wondering what it was that made me feel so out of sorts to my surroundings.
                          Entering the livingroom, my feet shuffling along, picked up the remote and clicked on the news.

                          What i saw and heard opened up a volcano of silent rage.
                          If i had the ability to nuke Fuk-looney-bin (Fallujah), the dead could have rested in peace, and my coming day of mental anguish calmed.
                          But as the day wore on my thoughts were assaulted by the silent death screams of 4 americans at the hands of savages.
                          Brutal primitives invading my home via electronic media dancing some ancient jig associated with dismemberment of human bodies.
                          An act that over the span of human history is called atrocity.
                          Evil cancerous vile ghoulish humans inhabit Fuk-looney-bin. The Tigris and Euphrates should be diverted and made to flow over that city, its inhabitates chained to the city and allowed to enter hell via drowning. I feel pain, pain that knows no healing but through vengence. I feel primitive in my rage. Savage thoughts of revenge reserved for those responsible and those that joined.

                          I have held
                          my rage
                          inside
                          my mind. It had to find release. I feel the tears upon my cheeks dripping off my chin even as i write.

                          All i can offer the dead are my tears.
                          Those dead stripped of life, whose bodies were made to suffer beyond what is called death. I wish my hands were there to cut them from that bridge. To lay the flesh on white linen while others blasted the bridge to smithereens. No one should cross that bridge again, EVER.

                          When the names are released, 4 candles will be lit and their named breathed into the heavens and remembered as americans fallen but never forgotten.

                          Thank you for allowing me to vent my rage with you. I just had to.
                          Only Tearful, Animal Man Through the Nature of his Being is Destined to
                          a Life of Warfare...

                              My first thought when I saw this on the news was if ever there was a place to use napalm that is it. I didn’t even care if there were any innocent killed since I held the whole town guilty. We should go in with enough force and a willingness to use it that everyone involved is handed over so that we stop the reprisals. Then maybe Americans will be safe.
