    BAGHDAD, Iraq - The vast majority of suicide attackers in Iraq are thought to be foreigners — mostly Saudis and other Gulf Arabs — and the trend has become more pronounced this year with North Africans also streaming in to carry out deadly missions, U.S. and Iraqi officials say.

    The bombers are recruited from Sunni communities, smuggled into Iraq from
    Syria after receiving religious indoctrination, and then quickly bundled into cars or strapped with explosive vests and sent to their deaths, the officials told The Associated Press. The young men are not so much fighters as human bombs — a relatively small but deadly component of the Iraqi insurgency.

    "The foreign fighters are the ones that most often are behind the wheel of suicide car bombs, or most often behind any suicide situation," said U.S. Air Force Brig. Gen. Don Alston, spokesman for the Multinational Force in Iraq.

    Officials have long believed that non-Iraqis infiltrating the country through its porous borders with Syria,
    Iran and Saudi Arabia were behind most suicide missions, and the wave of bloody strikes in recent months has confirmed that thinking.

    Authorities have found little evidence that Iraqis have been behind the near-daily stream of suicide attacks over the past six months, U.S. and Iraqi intelligence officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the subject's sensitivity.

    It's good to reiterate this, but it's not new. Most of the insurgents are not Iraqis either. It's the 'flypaper stategy' now evident. This is what Bully and others are calling the 'create new terrorists effect', but it's not. In reality our troops are killing vast numbers of these, which diminishes their ability to come here or heaven forbid to Paris and act in these places.

    The Iraqis support us, even those that were not in favor of the war, are now to the point of trying to get their country off the ground. Read more if you are so inclined at http://iraqthemodel.blogspot.com/

    I donot know where you get this info, a US general has admitted that more than 16,000 of the insurgents are iraqi's and only 1000 are not.
    Donot believe the news when you here that american troops are killing vast numbers of them, in fact its the other way around, the numbers that are presented by the US officials are not correct about the US casualties.

    Here is a video that shows a 4 time trial to recod a video clip for the american media which shows american soldiers in combat, there where 4 takes at that clip, and you can actually see the producer's head during on of the shots.
