    british female slaves

    A senior aide of radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr told worshippers during a Friday sermon in southern Iraq that anyone capturing a female British soldier can keep her as a slave.

    The aide, Sheik Abdul-Sattar al-Bahadli, also called on supporters to launch jihad, or holy war, against British troops in this southern city.

    He offered money to anyone capturing or killing a member of the Governing Council, the widely unpopular interim administration appointed by the U.S.-led occupation 10 months ago.

    Al-Bahadli, al-Sadr's chief representative in southern Iraq, spoke at al-Hawi mosque in central Basra.

    It was the first time any anti-occupation activist of note publicly offered financial reward for the killing or capturing of coalition troops.

    That offer likely will be viewed by occupation authorities with concern at a time of rising anti-occupation sentiment and continuing fighting between al-Sadr's al-Mahdi Army militia and U.S. forces in the holy cities of Najaf and Karbala.

    A wave of kidnappings last month saw scores of foreign nationals snatched by insurgents and shadowy groups across Iraq.

    Al-Bahadli kept an assault rifle next to him as he spoke to an estimated 3,000 worshippers, occasionally lifting it as he screamed "jihad!," and "Allahu Akbar!," or "God is greatest!"

    He held what he said were documents and photographs of three Iraqi women being raped at British-run prisons in Iraq.

    This asswipe needs to be shot like a cur dog and in wide open public view as an example of what NOT to be like

    Why can't the politicians just stop with all the partisan politics and allow our troops to kick ass?

    I think what we're doing is the right thing. This is a serious test and if the Iraqis pass this test, we will have passed it ten times over.

    If Iraqis get a handle on Sadr, it'll be a huge victory for our own military.

    what are we doing thats right? we're not rooting out these insurgent militias which is what we need to be doing. The Iraqis will not do a damn thing against Al-Sadr because even now we've got sunni groups HOUSING Shi'ite militia to show support. When did these two ever get along except to try to avoid husseins wrath? what does that say about how they feel about us now?

    we need to get rid of any and all of these people that fight our forces.

    I agree but what I'm saying is, if we were to destroy entire cities, or go into holy sites, and use extreme force, it would backfire. It'd help us out in the long run if we work with the ICDC to root these guys out. Sadr's just a small bump in the road to freedom.

    I can't believe some people on this forum are flippantly dismissing the fact that some within the U.S Army have been involved in evil sadistic acts.
    Mrs. England's Mother called her daughters actions as a’ childish prank'. Well most in the world might dispute that, might think she's in denial....scared by the fact that her daughter may actually be an evil bitch!
    Some on this forum seem share in this belief .....believing that its those evil Iraqi/Arabs/Muslims and their savage and uncivilized ways who are capable of torture and not anyone form the U.S...oh no not us !!
    All the world, including the U.S and other Western nations, accept that they have evil bastards in their own country (watch the news and those fear- soaked crime shows, read the newspapers.)
    So then...why is so hard to imagine that their might be evil citizens abroad........WHY IS THIS SUCH A STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION!!
    IT IS A DISHONOR, TO THE PROFESSI0NAL SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN SERVING OUT THERE........, TO FLIPPANTLY BRUSH ASIDE THESE DISGUSTING ACTS..AND..NOT ONLY THAT IT IS A DISHONOR TO THE CIVILISED PRINCIPLES OF HUMANTIY THAT EMERGED FROM WW2 , AND TO THE MILLIONS WHO DIED IN THE STRUGGLE AGAINST SADISM.

    How can we dismiss it when its in our Fucking faces for the last week every god damn minute i turn around!! Why do you insist on assuming that the actions of 7 people reflect the other 140,000 that are over there? Where has anyone, ANYONE said that these acts were accpetable? Why do you ignore the fact that these soldiers are going to be punished? Wheres your bleeding heart for the civilian contractors of Haliburton and other soldiers who have been killed and have had their lifeless bodeis drug through the streets?

    Get off your high horse. You don't care about the Iraqi people. All you care about is bringing this country down by furthering this incident as it were the holocaust. You've proved that by not even putting this in the right thread. we're talking about how the Soldiers hands are tied and need to be unleashed to attack these assholes and you bring up the prison issue again.
