Iraq The Untold Truths

Thank you Tom for sending this link and information to me.
AMONG the many positive stories you aren’t being told about Iraq, the media ignored another big one last week: In the wake of the terrorist bombing of the Golden Mosque in Samarra, it was the Iraqi army that kept the peace in the streets.
It’s routinely declared a failure by those who yearn for the new Iraq to fail. But an increasingly capable Iraqi military has been developing while reporters (who never really investigated the issue) wrote it off as hopeless.
What actually happened last week, as the prophets of doom in the media prematurely declared civil war?
~ The Iraqi army deployed over 100,000 soldiers to maintain public order. U.S. Forces remained available as a backup, but Iraqi soldiers controlled the streets.
~ Iraqi forces behaved with discipline and restraint – as the local sectarian outbreaks fizzled, not one civilian had been killed by an Iraqi soldier.
~ Time and again, Iraqi military officers were able to defuse potential confrontations and frustrate terrorist hopes of igniting a religious war.
~ Forty-seven battalions drawn from all 10 of Iraq’s army divisions took part in an operation that, above all, aimed at reassuring the public. The effort worked – from the luxury districts to the slums, the Iraqis were proud of their army
The media may cling to its image of earlier failures, but last week was a great Iraqi success.

What Happened To The Americans At Pulacharke?



.

For anyone following the Jack Idema story, this week has been as frustrating as last week was eventful.
Last time around, the situation was that Pulacharke prison, where Jack Idema, Brent Bennett and Ed Caraballo are being illegally held, was largely under the control of rioting Taliban and al-Qaeda prisoners. Ed was a hostage, while Jack and Brent were holed up in their annex, armed, and protected by a group of Northern Alliance soldiers.
Then, late last Wednesday, a team of Afghan soldiers, led by Colonel Sherzaman (the brother of General Sherzaman, who died protecting Jack during a similar riot a year ago), forced their way into Block 1 and freed Ed Caraballo.
Meanwhile, the Karzai government were working hard to appease the terrorists into ending their protests (along with the gang-rape of female prisoners). Acting through an ex-Taliban ‘peace envoy’, Mullah Mujahedi, assurances were made that none of the rioters would be punished for their orgy of rape and violence. This move seems to have taken the sting out of the terrorists’ will to resist, and Afghan Ministry of Justice troops finally reoccupied the prison during the course of Thursday.
Running alongside these events, however, SuperPatriots were also reporting that President Karzai was demanding that all weapons and communications equipment Jack and Brent were using be confiscated. By last Tuesday (Feb. 28th) afternoon (at around the same time as rioting terrorists were being given amnesty), Karzai seems to have decided to use the Afghan army to back up these demands. This was the result:

Someone, unknown, orders Karzai’s National Army to surround Jack’s BLOCK 2 ANNEX and take up security. National Army soldiers point guns and Jack, and Jack’s MOJ and Panjshir commandos return the favor, resulting in a stand-off between the MOJ and the National Army. It escalates to within seconds of bullets flying when a Karzai National Army soldier occupies the tower and points his weapon at Jack from the tower. After a two hour stand-off, yelling, and swearing on both sides, the National Army is withdrawn and Jack’s BLOCK TWO ANNEX falls back to TF SABER and the MOJ.

Plainly, Karzai wasn’t happy that Jack had helped publicise the truth about events inside Pulacharke. After all, Karzai and the U.S. State Department had spent the week playing down the scale of the riots, misrepresenting the true number of dead, and denying that the women hostages were being repeatedly raped. The last thing they wanted was to see the truth about what was happening leaking out, and especially not in the days leading up to President Bush’s visit.
Added to all this, members of the MSM spent the week of the riots clamouring for interviews with Jack and his team. Although Jack turned them down flat, it’s a fair bet that MSM were aware of the information being released through SuperPatriots and blogs, and were pressuring Kazai and Afghan authorities for a truer picture of what was happening inside the prison.
The reason all this matters is because no one has heard from Jack, Brent or Ed since last Wednesday (1st March):

Jack Gone Underground?
We are using all of our sources to contact Jack — Anyone with info advise
What happened to the Americans at Pulacharke? No one can reach them. The US Embassy refuses to comment. Jack no longer answers his phone, and Ministry of Justice will not even acknowledge his whereabouts. Caraballo and Bennett have also disappeared in Afghanistan and literally off the face of the earth. Banderas? No word on him either. Any Afghans reading this should contact Jack’s Panjshir soldiers and ask them to send us an email if they have any info. A journalist from AP told us today that he heard the FBI had gone to Pulacharke with the National Police or NDS with orders from Karzai to “deal with the Americans there.” What is the real story, and what happened to these guys?

With no news coming out of the prison, it’s difficult for any of us to even make a guess as to what’s happening. Has Jack been moved out of Pulacharke? If so, by Karzai’s people or his friends in the Northern Alliance?
Right now, all we can do is wait for news.

So what can we do? Well, anyone reading this with their own blog can sign up for the weekly Free Jack Idema Blogburst by emailing Cao or Rottweiler Puppy for details. I’d urge everyone to do this, as we’re still terribly short on takers. If you want to know more about the story, Cao’s Blog has a large section devoted to Jack Idema. There’s also a timeline here, and, of course, a huge amount of information is available over at SuperPatriots, without whose work none of us would have learned about Jack’s story.

Carter urges troop withdrawal from Iraq
SEATTLE — Former President Jimmy Carter criticized the war in Iraq on Wednesday, urging a troop drawdown as the United States enters its fourth year of conflict in Iraq.
“It was a completely unnecessary war. It was an unjust war,” said Carter, the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize winner. “It was initiated on the basis of false pretenses. All of those are true, but we can’t just pre-emptively withdraw.”

Iran News and More Threats

Ahmadinejad says Iran will make West regret aggression

Tehran, Iran, Mar. 08 – The West will regret trying to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear capabilities, radical Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Wednesday, state television reported.
“Everyone must accept and respect the Iranian nation’s desire to obtain peaceful nuclear technology”, Ahmadinejad said at a rally in the city of Khorramabad, western Iran.
“If anyone shows aggression to the Iranian nation’s rights, Iran will wipe the dark stain of regret on their foreheads”.
“If the world accepts Iran’s desire then fine, but if it wants to ignore the rights of the Iranian nation then Iran will know what path to pursue”.
“If we stand strong the enemies will be defeated in the face of the Iranian nation’s will”.
In an apparent reaction to an accusation Tuesday by United States Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld that Iran was sending members of its Revolutionary Guards into Iraq to cause harm.

Iran said on Wednesday the United States could feel “harm and pain” if the U.N. Security Council took up the issue of Tehran’s nuclear research and Tehran vowed to pursue the program come what may.

“The United States may have the power to cause harm and pain but it is also susceptible to harm and pain. So if the United States wishes to choose that path, let the ball roll,” it said in a statement obtained by Reuters on the sidelines of a U.N. nuclear watchdog board meeting in Vienna.

An Iranian collision course with the council looked more likely after Tehran brushed aside what EU diplomats said was a Russian offer to let it do some atomic research if it refrained from enriching uranium on an industrial scale for 7-9 years.

Brigadier General Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar
Iran’s Defence Minister vowed on Wednesday that the country’s armed forces were prepared for any foreign military aggression.
“The armed forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran are ready to defend the country from any threats by the enemies”, Brigadier General Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar said while in the western city of Khorramshahr, the official state news agency reported.

Breeder Sheehan Lets Son Casey Have Unmarked Grave




This unmarked patch of grass is Casey Sheehan’s grave where his mortal remains are buried. The picture was taken by Vacaville reporter Cat Moy.
Cindy Sheehan has already gone through Casey’s $250,000 insurance payout. But her son doesn’t even have a marker on his grave.
Cindy Sheehan recently “treated herself” to a brand new Volkswagen Beetle convertible. She still can’t be bothered to buy a grave marker for her son, though.
CINDY SHEEHAN:

I’d just like to know, also, exactly what am I getting out of this? I wake up in a different bed every night. I… am going through a divorce. I am not being paid by anybody… Al Qaeda, George Soros, Michael Moore… I don’t get a paycheck. And… I’m gone from my children, 27 days out of the month. I get smeared; I get dragged through the mud. And I’d just like to know, if I was doing it for me, I wouldn’t be doing it for me.

.

Wild Thing’s comment………..
Cindy has children at home. She has stated that she travels 27 days out of each month and is away from them. But she says she adores her family, I think NOT. She is not traveling for work to support her family. She is traveling to attack what her son stood for, what he fought for and what he gave his life for. She is a traitor to America and should be treated as such! Cindy there is a very special place for you in hell!

Interview of American Hero Pfc. Joshua Sparling



.

Many of you will remember the story of Pfc. Joshua Sparling, the wounded soldier who received a disgusting death-wish greeting card in December while hospitalized at Walter Reed Army Hospital.
Audio from Joshua Sparling being interviewed on the Sean Hannity radio show.
Sparling’s leg will have to be amputated below the knee–but he wants to “get back to [Fort Bragg] and “jump right back in his unit (the 82nd Airborne).” We are so fortunate to have men like Pfc. Sparling. He will be needing the halo device currently attached to his leg for the next 9 months or so in order that bone growth below the knee continues to progress so that the amputation can be done below the knee which is a much better scenario when it comes to the use of advanced prosthetics.
He wants to rejoin his 82nd Airborne unit after his recovery!
He also had some choice words in the interview regarding the terrorist
in North Carolina who ran over the students and for Jay Bennish’s statements
comparing the American flag to the nazi flag.
Joshua also mentioned that he finally gets to go home to Michigan for a month
coming up here shortly.
Colonel Ollie North was also in on the interview with Sean and Joshua.
Wild Thing’s comment……
My prayers are with you Joshua, you are in all of our hearts, minds and prayers.

Here is his address where you can write to him:

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Say U.S. “bluffing”

Tehran, Iran, Mar. 07 – A senior Revolutionary Guards commander dismissed on Tuesday threats by the United States over Iran’s nuclear program as “political bluff”, the government-owned news agency Fars reported.
Brigadier General Ali-Reza Afshar, a veteran Revolutionary Guards commander and director of propaganda and cultural affairs in the high command of the Armed Forces, made the remarks on the final day of a conference in Tehran entitled “the West’s Psychological War Against Iran”.

“The bulk of America’s threatening propaganda against the Islamic Republic of Iran is just political bluff”,
Afshar said.

He said that Iran was countering the “psychological war” being waged by the U.S. by highlighting America’s “domestic problems”, citing issues such as poverty, torture in prisons, unemployment, inequality, and instrumentalisation of women.

Afshar said that his government was exposing “America’s plots” in the Middle East. “When Muslims become aware of such plots, they forge a remarkable unity against America”.

Afshar cited the seizure of British gunboats by the Revolutionary Guards in June 2004 as an example of successful psychological war by Iran.

“If the Revolutionary Guards had not acted quickly in putting out news of the seizure of the boats, we would not have been able to create that psychological war against the British”, he said.

Scenes of blindfolded and handcuffed British marines being paraded by Revolutionary Guards shocked television viewers in London in the summer of 2004. Despite repeated requests by Britain, Iran has refused to return the boats and equipment.
Afshar listed four stages of psychological war as peace, threats, crisis and war. He said that with the coming to power of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, “enemy plans to sow discord within the government of the Islamic Republic” have been thwarted.

“Now the enemy is trying to use other tools against us, including ethnic and religious conflicts and partisan strife, but we must recognise these and be ready to confront them”, the Revolutionary Guards general said.

Wild Thing’s comment……
I’ll put it this way. If this was a poker game, I would want the hand that the USA held and NOT the hand that Ahmadinejad held. Don’t Mess with the USA!

NAKBA to Muslims

Symposium: To Rape an Unveiled Woman
FrontPageMagazine.com
A Muslim rape epidemic in sweeping over Europe — and over many other nations host to immigrants from the Islamic world. The direct connection between the rapes and Islam is irrefutable, as Muslims are significantly overrepresented among convicted rapists and rape suspects. The Muslim perpetrators themselves boast that there crime is justified since their victims were, among other things, not properly veiled.
The jihad against the infidels is conducted on each and every level, not only as terror and suicide bombing. The jihad against women, who by their behaviour in the public sphere, are “asking for rape”, as the Danish mufti Shahid Mehdi, a Qur’an teacher of joung Muslims in Copenhagen, put it in 2004, and/or towards their husbands, by their alleged disobedience are challenging the survival and expansion of Islam, of the “Ummah”, is a must for the Muslim men.

Rehov:A friend of mine is a retired chief of police, who used to be in charge of the security of a major city in the south of France. He reported to me that his men had to face an average of 10 rapes a week, 80% made by Muslim young men. 30% being what we call, in French, a “ tournante “, meaning that the victim is being raped by an entire gang, one after the other, often during an entire night. My friend reports that, in many cases, he was able to locate and arrest the rapists, often very young ones, and, as part of the investigation, call the families.
He was astonished that, in most cases, the parents not only would back up their rapist children, but also would not even understand why they would be arrested.
There is an instant shift in the notion of good and evil as a major component of culture. The only evil those parents would see, genuinely, is the temptation that the male children had to face. Since in most cases the victims were not Muslims, the parents’ answer and rejection was even more genuine: how could their boys be guilty of anything, when normally answering to a provocation by occidental women, known for their unacceptable behavior?

Wild Thing’s comment………
There is a word that followers of Islam hate more then any other word. If you are on a forum and Muslims are present and you use this word, most of the time they will immediately leave. The word is Nakba. The word Nakba is Arabic for “the Catastrophe,” and it refers to the creation of the state of Israel. The Palestinian rallies mournfully commemorate the day Israel was created. They call it “Al Nakba”.
We as a country need to stop calling it the Religion of Peace, we need to say we are at war with Islam because that is more to the truth then the war on terror (WOT). Islam is TERROR and it is delivered to the world by such evil that we truly will never understand it imo. Oh we get hate, we get being pissed of, and we get how to fight back better then any other Military because ours ROCKS!
What some people don’t get, those inflicted with apathy and filled with the disease of political correctness is that unless we call it what it is, unless our leaders make those speaking against this Nation i.e. Carter, Gore, Clinton,Kerry, Murtha, Reid and others…….are punished for treason when we are at war with the most vile, evil enemy this world has ever known…….we very well may loose if they get their way. They do not effect those of us except make us furious. But their constant barage of words and deeds are a negative force.
I agree with Craig Winn when he wrote….

“Calling it the war on terror camouflages our actual enemy….which is Islam. We need to understand who the terrorists are (good Muslims) and why they kill (Islam). The Qur’an is a declaration of war against all mankind. The Hadith is a terrorist manifesto. Muhammad could not give them a reason to live. He gave them a reason to die.”

We should be blaming 9-11 on Islam not Osama bin Laden. He is just a currier of Islam. Not one of the Muslim murderers of that day said “Hail Osama.” They shouted, “Allahu Akbar.”
They have learned well this hate they have, they teach it to their young. What you drive, where you live, how much you own or have in your bank account does not matter to them. Your lifestye, politics, government policies, and even sanctions do not make a difference. Their hate is for anyone that is not a Muslim.

Let the entire world hear me,” said Sheik Hassan Nasrallah on Sept. 27, 2002. “Our hostility to the Great Satan is absolute.”

There’s good reason to take this sheik seriously. In 1983, his Iranian-backed Lebanese terrorist group attacked the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, killing 241 Americans. According to the opinion of U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth in the case of Peterson v. the Islamic Republic of Iran, Nasrallah attended the meeting in Baalbek, Lebanon, where the 1983 attack was planned. It was one of the deadliest terrorist strikes ever against the United States.
The sheik’s Sept. 27, 2002, rally in Beirut celebrated the Palestinian intifadah. It was broadcast live on Lebanese TV and monitored by the BBC.

“Regardless of how the world has changed after 11 September,” Nasrallah said that day, “Death to America will remain our reverberating and powerful slogan: Death to America!”

Cheney Has Harsh Words For Iran




Iran won’t be allowed a nuclear weapon
In the strongest message to date addressed to the Iranian leadership, US Vice President Dick Cheney warned Teheran that the US is not ruling out any option in preventing Iran from gaining nuclear weapons. “The United States is keeping all options on the table in addressing the irresponsible conduct of the regime”, Cheney said to 5,000 Aipac members gathered in Washington for the organization’s annual policy conference.
Cheney, who received a standing ovation from the crowd after his harsh words towards Iran, added that “the United States joins other nations in sending that regime a clear message: we will not allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon” and that the international community will impose actions that will have “meaningful consequences” if Iran continues to develop its nuclear program.
