Have 6000 Iranian soldiers surrounded Baghdad? More pictures of US air raid

Truth about Iraqis

March 18, 2006

ANN, an Arab news network, just interviewed Riyadh Al Rikabi, a former Shia Baathist living in Najaf, who said that 6000 Iranian soldiers had infiltrated the borders and were taking up positions in and around Baghdad.

This is, as yet, of course, unverified news.

However, it does mark an interesting turn of events (if true) since the US and Iran are purportedly in talks on how to curb the violence in Iraq.

Speaking of violence, a few days ago, I placed a picture of the tragic killing of 11 civilians after a US aerial assault.

There was discrepancy (thanks Dancewater for pointing it out) over how the children had been killed.

So, I place some more pictures (thanks to iraqirabita.org).

This website also carries a different account saying that US authorities first "executed" then bombed the home.

Why, I do not know.

"At 1.30pm, the US occupation troops backed by helicopters attacked the family residence of Fa’is Harat, a teacher at the local primary school. After securing the family home, handcuffing its residents and subjecting them to beating; and controlling the surrounding residential area, the US occupation troops executed all family members which were Fa’is Harat himself, his wife, his three children, his sister along with her three children, his father, and female relative’, he went on to clarify that 'the children were aged between 2 months and 6 years," an eyewitness is reported to have said.

However, these pictures may not resolve the issue. It remains to be seen if the Iraqi government will investigate.

For its part, the US military did acknowledge bombing the house but said:

The American military confirmed the attack but said only four people died — a man, two women and a child," the Associated Press says (original link has been altered).

But the New York Times shed further information on this incident:

American soldiers demolished a farmhouse near the Sunni Arab town of Balad on Wednesday after encountering unexpectedly heated resistance from insurgents, killing a number of civilians in the process.

The American military said that only three civilians had been killed, while Iraqi officials said an entire 11-member family — from a 75-year-old grandmother to a 6-month-old baby — had died in the attack.

Maj. Tim Keefe, a military spokesman, said American troops were on their way to capture an insurgent in a rural area north of Baghdad when insurgents opened fire from the farmhouse.

"Coalition forces returned fire, utilizing both air and ground assets," Major Keefe said.

The results were devastating, according to images broadcast on Arab TV: dead cows, scorched cars, a smashed house and 11 bodies rolled up in blankets.

The insurgent suspect was captured, Major Keefe said, adding that American officials were continuing to investigate the matter.
But the pictures I place here and at the links are poignant nonetheless. For more pictures, click here.

Sorry, no warnings from me. This war is cold and merciless. And must be exposed, if you can't handle these pictures, don't wave your flag the next time a puny president rallies for a pre-emptive war.

Any war.

In related news:

Naval investigators are looking into whether Marines intentionally killed 15 Iraqi civilians - four of them women and five of them children - during fighting last November, defense officials said Friday. (See Knight Ridder report)

One official said it's unclear whether the Marines killed the civilians accidentally or whether they fired indiscriminately. It's also unclear whether all the civilians died in the same house or in separate locations. Among the dead was a 15-year-old girl, an official said.
