they DIED like whimpering DOGS, beggiing for mercy

27-06-2003 10:25

Stormtroopers executed by outraged townspeople begged to be spared by showing pictures of their loved ones. A witness said the stormtroopers wanted to demonstrate to their captors: "Look we are just like you...we have wives and children too." Their pleas were in vain - there was no mercy. More detail was also building up of stormtrooper provocation of townspeople during weapons-search patrols in the days before Tuesday's carnage in the Shi'ite area. Stormtroopers used dogs - which are not allowed in Muslim homes.

Bremer Cool as Temperatures Soar in Iraq

26-06-2003 04:49

Reporting from Baghdad, The Independent's Patrick Cockburn wrote that the situation became so unbearable last week that people in one decrepit neighborhood threatened to shoot Bassim Arman, manager of the al-Thawra substation. Arman said he told the hostile group that the station itself was not receiving power. He was not harmed, but had to close the substation after employees, fearing for their safety, refused to return to work.

Civil Administrator L. Paul Bremer contradicted complaints of failing electricity, stating that generally Baghdad received power 20 hours a day.

"It simply isn't true," Cockburn reported one incredulous Iraqi responding. "Everyone in Baghdad knows it."

"He and his staff don't really know what it is like, because if they go out at all, it is in air-conditioned cars," Kurdish politician Mahmoud Othman told Cockburn. "But I've walked the streets, and I know what it is like. They are ill-informed and ill-advised."

Knight Ridder correspondent, Tom Lasseter, noted that electricity is unevenly distributed, with some areas of the city receiving the stated 20 hours of electricity, while other have power for only two or three hours.

The Coalition Provisional Authority operates from the generator-backed Republican Palace compound in the center of Baghdad.

Neighborhood Bully Ramsey Clark on American Militarism

When I picture a high-ranking government official, I think of someone who is corrupt. I think of a corporate shill. I think of someone who is not
a friend to the people of this country. I think of Lord Acton’s famous line about power corrupting, and absolute power corrupting absolutely. I
think of the disdain with which so many Americans have viewed so many of their leaders for so many years.
