Terror tape says 4,000 foreign fighters killed in Iraq

POSTED: 3:17 p.m. EDT, September 28, 2006

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- A man identified as the leader of al Qaeda in Iraq said on an audiotape Thursday that more than 4,000 foreign fighters have died battling the U.S.-led coalition and Iraqi troops.

 

"We poured so much of our blood in Iraq," said the tape's speaker, purportedly new al Qaeda in Iraq chief Abu Hamza al-Muhajer

 

 

Seems that Alqaeda chief is replying to those who critisize Bush on the war on Sadam.. Just imagine that if 10% of these criminals had stayed to their original countries and not headed to Iraq, what would happen to those who are critizsizing Bush.. Could they ride their cars and enjoy thier flights?

 

The above would explain the frustration by Iraqis toward US policy in Iraqi too. Most Iraqis today thought that Americans are using Iraq as "kamasha nar " or oven's hand glove . In other word, using Iraq as a killing zone to terrorist , not caring of those one hundered thousands of Iraqi got cuaght in that fight.! That feeling might explain the last Poll results..

Commenting on the recent Poll results that showed majority of Iraqis are willing to see a sooner withdraw, I think that the growing concerns by Iraqis are going to the extent that such "killing zone scenario by the Americans" theory might be fueled by what Iraqis had noticed over the last two years..

last year, when Interior minister Solagh treid his best to fight Alqaeda and Sadamist, the US military tried it's best to stop or put obsticles in front of him.That is to the extent of raiding some ministery prisons and free those terrorist on bases of human rights and secterian and secert jail accusations.All this was happening while CIA , as admited recently, were running secret jails. This year , when Alsadrees stand in front of the Qaeda and Sadamist and did the job in protecting people, the US military turn back to Sadrees accusing them of igniting secterian war. In both cases, there are growing feeling that yas Americans might want to fight terrorist , but to their timing and game rules and not per the Iraqi rules, Not caring about the huge life loses by Iraqi civilians.

 

This is might not be the real motive by Americans, it might miss calculation, it might be for benefits of long term goals of estabilishing stable Iraq, but Iraqis want a solution to their continuel killing by these criminals, being part of the American killing zone conspiracy or not!!

Iraqi Journalists Add Laws to List of Dangers

E-MailPrint Single Page Reprints Save

 

By PAUL von ZIELBAUER

Published: September 29, 2006

 

Have a look to a westren fantazi..

 

Currently, three journalists for a small newspaper in southeastern Iraq are being tried here for articles last year that accused a provincial governor, local judges and police officials of corruption. The journalists are accused of violating Paragraph 226 of the penal code, which makes anyone who “publicly insults” the government or public officials subject to up to seven years in prison.

 

I want to ask the NY reproter, what would happen if you publish an article with insult or accuse any subject of USA without evidence?

 

Having said that, I don't mean that the press freedom should be pushed down, Indeed it is one of our golden awards that current changes brought to Iraqis. But it should be regulated so not to be used in dirty political race..

Baghdad under curfew over suspected plot

U.S. troops detain Sunni guard believed to be preparing suicide bombings

 

Khalid Mohammed / AP

Updated: 1:08 p.m. PT Sept 30, 2006

BAGHDAD, Iraq - U.S. troops detained a bodyguard for the leader of Iraq’s biggest Sunni Arab political group on suspicion the guard was preparing suicide bombings, and fearful officials on Saturday enforced a total ban on movement in this city of about seven million people.

 

The U.S. command said the man was believed to be a member of al-Qaida in Iraq and was preparing a series of suicide attacks inside the heavily fortified Green Zone, home to the Iraqi government, parliament and the U.S. and other western embassies.

 

Khudhir Farhan was taken into custody Friday at the home of Adnan al-Dulaimi, the head of the largest Sunni Arab bloc in parliament, al-Dulaimi told The Associated Press.

 

 

“Credible intelligence indicates the individual, a member of Dr. Dulaimi’s personal security detachment, and seven members of the detained individual’s cell were in the final stages of launching a series of (car bomb) attacks inside the International Zone, possibly involving suicide vests,” the U.S. military said in a statement without identifying the man by name.

 

He is suspected of having links to a car bomb network operating in the southern area of Baghdad, the military said.

 

Immediately after the arrest Friday afternoon, al-Dulaimi denied that the guard had terrorist links. But when contacted by the AP on Saturday he said: “That individual joined my residence as a guard no more than a month ago, therefore I haven’t got complete data about his background.”

 

“Anyhow, they are only suspicions about his involvement, which have not been proved,” al-Dulaimi said.

 

Sunni leader was cooperative

The U.S. military said al-Dulaimi cooperated with soldiers when they showed up to apprehend the guard.

 

“This operation in no way implies Dr. al-Dulaimi was associated with any illegal activity; he was not the target in this operation,” the U.S. command said in a statement.

 

Following the Friday raid on al-Dulaimi’s house, the Iraqi government ordered a complete lockdown inside Baghdad — banning all pedestrian and vehicular traffic until Sunday morning. Such bans have been imposed in the past following fears that car or suicide bombs were planned.

 

The curfew was put into place on the advice of U.S. forces, Interior Ministry spokesman Brig. Abdul-Kaim Khalaf told the AP.

 

“They have information terrorists entered Baghdad,” Khalaf said. “The prime minister agreed to (the curfew) to give our security forces the freedom of movement to raid certain places.”

 

Though the capital was quiet because of the curfew, six people were killed in scattered violence around the country, including an Iraqi working as an interpreter for the U.S. military in an area about 60 miles south of Baghdad, authorities said.

In Jiddah, Rice said she is also hoping to win Saudi political and financial help in Iraq. Guardian of Islam's holy places and ruled by a staunchly Sunni government, the kingdom has particular leverage with Iraq's Sunni tribes.

 

"Saudi Arabia has a lot of standing with a number of the forces in Iraq" and was "very helpful in trying to get Sunnis involved in the election," Rice told reporters traveling with her. "So I think it would be very helpful if they were supportive of, and working toward," helping Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's national reconciliation plan.

A big blow to Arab anti democracy media who kept propaganda that Rice is coming to consult with arab rulers new startegy for Iraq.. Yesterday on Alrabia bunch of arab state propagadists were analysing this new startegy to be a prove of the full fail of American strategy of democritizing ME.

I would like to see their ugly face today..!

 

I think a visit by Rice to Iraq would give a big push to Almaliki governemnt who was under a very battacking compaign by Sadamists and arab rulers media, claiming that Almaliki is not doing enough .. Some thing they already copied from their allies in the US media.. I don't want to elaborate more on this.. It is so discusting to see the American political race giving ecourging signals to those criminals!

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraqi authorities for the first time pulled a brigade of about 700 policemen out of service Wednesday for investigation of suspected ties to death squads, aiming to signal the government’s seriousness in cleansing Baghdad of sectarian violence.

 

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15124922/

 

Iraqi governemnt military spoke's man , Prig. Almousawee, denied today such news by what called a sadamist propagandists. It seems Iraqi governemnt spokes men job these days are just to deny those manipulated news. I dare the msn would issue his announcement on same news page..

 

The brigade was responsible for a region of northeast Baghdad where gunmen on Sunday kidnapped 24 workers from a frozen food factory. Hours later, the bodies of seven of the workers were found dumped in a district miles away. Sunni politicians have said all those who were kidnapped were Sunnis; the region has a mixed population with a slight Shiite majority.

 

The writer here is mixing another incident. The above prig is the fifth prigade who is working in North east, the brigade responsible for Alaamel discret , which located in west Sunni of baghdad, is the eith brigade. It is tru that it's head was suspended while an investigation is running on why not responding fast. Nothing to to do the first one that the Sadimist web sites had anoounced suspention.

Thanks Dr. Rice.. Thought she might not have the chance to read this but at least she did the right thing at right time.. we need to stand firm behind Almaliki in his sincere and strong will, though seems gradual, to push I raq in the right direction. Two days ago, according to leaked information, he showed a non usuall face to all political parties threatening them that he has no choice but to go to Iraqi people showing them what he knows about each party and it's links to what is going on . He was quoted to say that he no loger able to sustain such indirence toward the escalated violance in Baghad and othe places.

 

Dr. Rice speaches went in that direction in pushing different parties saying that them that time run thin.

Almaliki quiet work has finaly come to some results, the Alanbar Provice Shiekhs who already visited him last week , are planning for a wide confrence in Baghdad on saterday, Almaliki said that what ever these shiekhs will come up with a decisions and visions , he will go for. this is a big confrontation to Islamic party who is in conflict with these shiekhs . Islamic party is in the government coalition and might not feel comfort seeing these tribal leaders taking their people destinay in their hands to get the province rid of those qeada cells . they already started their alnbar wakeup " Sahwa al anbar", a lot of results are reported. The best was what I read yesterday on aljazera by a former Sadamist writer who went to say " these shiekhs are much worse than others and the people of Anbar will kill them"!!

America ponders cutting Iraq in three

Sarah Baxter, Washington

 

 

 

AN independent commission set up by Congress with the approval of President George W Bush may recommend carving up Iraq into three highly autonomous regions, according to well informed sources.

The Iraq Study Group, co-chaired by James Baker, the former US secretary of state, is preparing to report after next month’s congressional elections amid signs that sectarian violence and attacks on coalition forces are spiralling out of control. The conflict is claiming the lives of 100 civilians a day and bombings have reached record levels.

 

 

 

The Baker commission has grown increasingly interested in the idea of splitting the Shi’ite, Sunni and Kurdish regions of Iraq as the only alternative to what Baker calls “cutting and running” or “staying the course”.

 

“The Kurds already effectively have their own area,” said a source close to the group. “The federalisation of Iraq is going to take place one way or another. The challenge for the Iraqis is how to work that through.”

 

The commission is considered to represent a last chance for fresh thinking on Iraq, where mass kidnappings are increasing and even the police are suspected of being responsible for a growing number of atrocities.

 

Baker, 76, an old Bush family friend who was secretary of state during the first Gulf war in 1991, said last week that he met the president frequently to discuss “policy and personnel”.

 

His group will not advise “partition”, but is believed to favour a division of the country that will devolve power and security to the regions, leaving a skeletal national government in Baghdad in charge of foreign affairs, border protection and the distribution of oil revenue.

 

The Iraqi government will be encouraged to hold a constitutional conference paving the way for greater devolution. Iran and Syria will be urged to back a regional settlement that could be brokered at an international conference.

 

Baker, a leading exponent of shuttle diplomacy, has already met representatives of the Syrian government and is planning to see the Iranian ambassador to the United Nations in New York. “My view is you don’t just talk to your friends,” he said last week. “You need to talk to your enemies in order to move forward diplomatically towards peace.”

 

His group has yet to reach a final conclusion, but there is a growing consensus that America can neither pour more soldiers into Iraq nor suffer mounting casualties without any sign of progress. It is thought to support embedding more high-quality American military advisers in the Iraqi security forces rather than maintaining high troop levels in the country indefinitely.

 

Frustrated by the failure of a recent so-called “battle of Baghdad” to stem violence in the capital, Zalmay Khalilzad, the US ambassador to Iraq, said last week that the unity government of Nouri al-Maliki, the prime minister, had only two months left to get a grip. Rumours abound that the much-admired ambassador could depart by Christmas.

 

Khalilzad’s warning was reinforced by John Warner, Republican chairman of the Senate armed services committee, on his return from a visit to Baghdad. “In two to three months’ time, if this thing hasn’t come to fruition and this government (is not) able to function, I think it’s a responsibility of our government internally to determine: is there a change of course we should take?” Warner said.

 

Bush and Condoleezza Rice, the secretary of state, have resisted the break-up of Iraq on the grounds that it could lead to more violence, but are thought to be reconsidering. “They have finally noticed that the country is being partitioned by civil war and ethnic cleansing is already a daily event,” said Leslie Gelb, former president of the Council on Foreign Relations.

 

Gelb is the co-author with Senator Joseph Biden, a leading Democrat, of a plan to divide Iraq. “There was almost no support for our idea until very recently, when all the other ideas being advocated failed,” Gelb said.

 

In Baghdad last week Rice indicated that time was running out for the Iraqi government to resolve the division of oil wealth and changes to the constitution.

The killing of the brother of the Iraqi vice preseden, a sunni arab, would bring two dimentions

 

It comes just one day after the Muslim scholar association warning to the sunni arab Islamic party of supporting the current political process. This the thrird member of Dr. tariq alahshimee family after the killing of his sister and other brother.

 

This should ring bells at two sides. the shia and sunni

On the Shia parties who keep claiming that the islamic party is another face of terrorists campaign. The terrorist don't differenciat.. Today Alhashimee is recording a record of plotician family that loss highest number of members.

On the sunni side, to seriously consider the threat odf these sadamists and qaeda criminals, they have no limit and they don't care if it is a sunni or shia, they need to stand up with their other brothers in iraq to have Iraq wipe out the terror. They need not to keep covering the asses of the criminals by keep putting obsticles in face of Iraqi governemnt war against them

 

 

 

I don't want to comment on Baker's recommendation

I simply don't buy it

 

Iraq is for Iraqis and they the only who decide what type of system is most suitable for them..The constitution already approves the federal system and not the confedral. I don't think baker's committe knows Iraq better than Iraqis..

The statistics by an American school about those Iraqis killed by terrorists after the fall of Sadam is interesting , not for it's unrealistic estimation though.

The question is why such school can go in so unprofessional way to announce such numbers that would not be accepted on any conservative measure , at least by ten folds?

 

There are two possibilities, the first is the political competition in USA these days .Such numbers would impact the war cause.

The other is that it is trying to over estimate casualties of Iraqis to propaganda for a very cruel image of those terrorists who are killing Iraqis every day..

 

Both ways, I felt so disgusted witnessing Iraqi blood to be part of a dirty political race .. What a shameful conduct!

The White house spokesman confirmed today that there is no such thing as a dead line for Maliki to stabalize the country. Though thsi confirmation was late, but it is still very valuable. We need to support Maliki governement as the only possible to get out of current crises.. Yestrday Alawee denounced the claims that there are plans by him fo a military take over. he luaghted at such claims saying that there is no Army to be able to do such thing. He accused a neighboring country for propaganda for such. he might be refering to Iran!

 

I think Iraqis and maliki governement had succeded to drop any such possibility of retreat to democracy. We need to work so ahrd to get this message clear to all parties in iraq.. So not to keep histating assuming that the Bush iron support can be intimidated!!
