Video Report on Al-Qaeda’s Killing Fields

Al-Hurra, a U.S.-funded Arabic news channel, aired a disturbing report on five newly-discovered mass graves (Arabic language footage, opens immediately) along the shores of Tharthar Lake, an area that until recently was an Al-Qaeda bastion.

Tens of bodies have been counted so far, many of them dumped in shallow pits or at the sites of training camps that used to belong to the Saddam’s Feddayeen paramilitary units and that were later appropriated by Al-Qaeda.

The gruesome images—there’s a disclaimer about their effect on viewers—show scattered bones and tattered clothes; the authorities speculate that most of the victims were kidnapped last winter since they were wearing heavy clothing. What hurts most is the presence of animal droppings around the bones suggesting that packs of wild animals made a feast of the victims.

Many Iraqis, me included, are waiting to hear anything about our “disappeared” family members and friends. Whenever such a number of decomposed bodies are found, there is a macabre hope that we’d finally have an answer.

Now that the insurgency—the war that Al-Qaeda and the enemies of the New Iraq had launched—is over, we can start dealing with the trauma of what has happened to us over the last four years, in addition to the pain and suffering of the preceding Ba’athist nightmare.

Yet there’s one thing I will never get over: how the anti-Bush crowd and the insurgents have overlapped in rhetoric and fantasy.

So when dilettantes claiming to be Iraq "experts" still obsessively adhere to the “Iraq is a disaster” line, I begin to imagine that their wounded egos—since they’re wrong, so utterly wrong—would secretly cheer whenever the bad guys strike again in Iraq, because that may generate a bad headline with a Baghdad byline thus prolonging the shelf-life of the myths they’ve constructed.

There’s been a diarrhea of “experts” who’ve weighed-in on Iraq after having picked-up a couple of primers on the topic. They are intellectual frauds, and they know it. What’s funnier is that they believe they have a firmer grasp on Iraq’s reality because they read the New York Times and news outlets of a similar ideological bent, and foolishly challenge the opinions of those who rely on their own sourcing.

These hordes of discredited journos, academics and pundits are spitting and pissing into the wind, and they are starting to look like a mess.

The neocons were supposed to be the delusional, inbred ideologues that’ve shut out the real world; it’s ironic that nowadays this characterization so perfectly fits the “Iraq is a disaster” crowd…

I was going to laugh under caps lock, but I didn't want to disrespect you.
How is the insurgency over when this is the deadliest year for the Crusader aggressor so far?


we can start dealing with the trauma of what has happened to us over the last four years,
in addition to the pain and suffering of the preceding Ba’athist nightmare.


Would I be incorrect in observing that both this war, and the suffering under sanctions 1990-2003
had a slight American involvement as well?

Have you considered maybe that you are on the wrong track, and the one trying to keep a misguided fantasy alive?
Let's look at the track record, did you expect that 4.5 years after the invasion
the world would watch as Iraq thoroughly destroys the United States.

Quoting Osama bin Laden:

The world has stood stunned, amazed, delighted and wonder-struck watching America the tyrannical: watching its legions breaking apart under your strikes
its brigades being wiped out in front of your raids and its battalions being obliterated by the pounding of your squadrons.



[ they believe they have a firmer grasp on Iraq’s reality because they read the New York Times
and foolishly challenge the opinions of those who rely on their own sourcing. ]


And what is your sourcing brother, the Iraqi Shia?
If they had the ability to read the future, they wouldn't have joined the puppet forces 4 years ago to get slaughtered by the tens of thousands.

As for the subject of your blog entry: Al-Hurra is an American propaganda channel as you know.
Do you think there might be a reason they are showing you this apart from conscientious journalism

Hi jaguar b. p.,

You've unwittingly proven my point: Al-Qaeda supporters and the left-leaning media find solace in the same news items.

Like you, MSNBC seems almost jubilant in reporting what you called the "deadliest year for the Crusader aggressor so far":

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21650614/

Interestingly, MSNBC is no longer hiding it left-leaning bias, as reported today in the NYT:

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/06/business/media/06msnb.html?_r=1&adxnnl=1&oref=slogin&adxnnlx=1194391050-qBlwDSw9iiBzp/7nJ/awNQ

We won, you lost. One would assume that we should be magnanimous in victory, but I think not. You are the lowest of the low, and you deserve no respect or mercy.

hi TG.. :)

pay no attention to the barking mufsid.. he runs with the pack of wild dogs who slaughtered innocent Iraqis so he could bark even louder.. a truly sick in the mind, heart & soul inhumane being.. i pray for all who fell under their evil spell.. :( and i curse barbarians such as jbp, may they burn in hell for eternity..

re:

anti-Bush crowd and the insurgents have overlapped
in rhetoric and fantasy.


many of US have been more or less saying the same thing for a few years now.. the irony is.. they are complete opposites, yet both have the have the same self-serving goal..

i've also been saying things would have been much different in Iraq much sooner had not only the Americans united in the Iraqi Liberation, but had the WORLDS people spoke as one against the radical Isamofascist cancer that is plaguing the planet..

God Bless YOU..
God Bless IRAQIS..
God Bless the USCOTW..

and God Bless Sarkosy.. :)

How is the insurgency over when this is the deadliest year for the Crusader aggressor so far?

Here's how it works, jag: First, the US loses troops at a rate of X% per month. If you then add more troops, the numbers (but not the percentages) go up. Second, until recently, US troops stayed on large, safe bases. Under the new strategy, they stay at smaller, less-safe outposts. This causes the percentages to go up.

On the flip side, having those troops out in those outposts, interacting with everyday people, creates trust among the Iraqis. That trust is what ended the insurgency.

That is how the insurgency was defeated even though more soldiers were dying.

Quit dragging others into your wars.
Spain already had to unnecessarily pay a price for your disgusting habit of pulling other people into your implosion.

Iraq also is a disaster of your making, and none of it had to happen.
Tandheem al-Qa3ida had virtually zero presence in the country prior to the disruption of 2003

And all of the calamities you're causing for innocent people and bystanders that shouldn't be involved in the conflict,
are just more proof that war should be taken directly to continental U.S.

in the spirit of Abu Abdulrahman aka Muhammad Atta,
may Allah house him in the 7th level of Paradise or thereabouts.
