Insurgent Base Discovered in Fallujah :: Iraq Net :: Iraq's Online News Resource: "Jackie Spinner

NEAR FALLUJAH, Iraq, Nov. 18 -- U.S. soldiers discovered a house in southern Fallujah on Thursday believed by U.S. military officials to be a main headquarters for the network of the Jordanian guerrilla leader Abu Musab Zarqawi, whose group has claimed responsibility for numerous bombings, kidnappings and beheadings across Iraq."

Live From Dallas: November 2004: "The Independent High Commission for Elections in Iraq approved 56 political entities by Nov. 16, 2004. These entities can participate in the upcoming elections, which will take place before Jan. 31, 2005."

Blog for America: "It is amazing that House Republicans have the gall to run on a claim of moral superiority. Today they approved a rule change which would allow current Majority leader Tom DeLay to retain his post, even if convicted of a felony which would carry a two year or longer jail sentence (for example, felony money laundering, as was the case with two of his top aides). "

Kurdo's World: "Mosul update
According to PUKMedia.com reporter in Mosul, Kurdish suburbs (Eastern Mosul) are under Peshmerga control and Arab suburbs are under insurgents control. "

The Green Side: "As you have no doubt been watching, we have had our hands full around Fallujah. It would seem as if the final reckoning is coming. The city has been on a consistent down hill spiral since we were ordered out in April. It's siren call for extremists and criminals has only increased steadily and the instability and violence that radiates out of the town has expanded exponentially. If there is another city in the world that contains more terrorists, I would be surprised."

THE MESOPOTAMIAN: "After appeasement of Fallujah it is absolutely imperative to turn attention to the southern approaches to Baghdad. Armed bands have effectively severed the road leading south through the triangle of Latifiya-Iskandariya-Yousifiya. This is a belt separating the south from Baghdad. The demography of this belt is characterized by tribes who had very close links to the defunct regime. Awful crimes are being perpetrated on these roads. People are being murdered simply for having the wrong names. "

Occupation Watch:?PROTEST THE ATTACK ON FALLUJA!: "The assault on Falluja has started. U.S. warplanes are dropping huge bombs on civilian neighborhoods, and ground troops are beginning to enter the city. One hospital, Nazzal Emergency Hospital, was destroyed in an air strike; another, Falluja General Hospital, has been seized by U.S. forces, making it unlikely that injured civilians will be able to go there for treatment. The estimated 50,000 civilians who remain in Falluja lack running water, electricity, and food."

IRAQ THE MODEL: "In the end I just want to clarify one thing. This blog was not a propaganda tool and will never be. Our unlimited joy with our new found freedom that we still enjoy its sweetness is too precious to be lost or sold no matter what the price."

www.AndrewSullivan.com - Daily Dish: "It's pointless to reiterate this, since the administration will never listen, but the evidence is still overwhelming that we do not have sufficient military manpower - American or Iraqi - to keep order in Ira"

Hammorabi: "Our hearts is with the innocent people of Falluja who were exposed to a lot of pressure and hardship from the anomalous and pervert insurgents."

Informed Comment : 11/01/2004 - 11/30/2004: "Most Americans do not realize that Fallujah is celebrated in Iraqi history and poetry for its defiance of the British in the Great Rebellion of 1920. The 1920 revolution against the British is key to modern Iraqi history. "

Raed in the Middle: "
The Iraqi Red Crescent is STILL asking for permission to enter Fullujah, unlike the lies CNN is putting about how 'humanitarian' the US army is. The bridges linking Fallujah to the Main hospital are still closed,"

An interesting perspective on the 'moral' of the UN vs the 'moral of Halli... ehm, the US government: Iraq & Iraqi`s: "For me as an Iraqi I am happy and thankful for the results because I couldn?t afford to face new policy from another party who think that things in Iraq should be turned to UN, which we know very well in Iraq, how corrupt it is."
