Why don’t they tell in honest way the miserable status of US occupation solders? Brave Iraqi resistance fighters are hunting occupation solders and their machinery on daily bases while the occupation administration is only showing misleading pictures to cover up their political scandals. Occupation solders can only move in groups in fear of resistance attacks.

Yet no one has admitted or announced the true fate of the dead American solders.

Lately, reports from all over the homeland tell about US planes that throw black and white bags over rivers and deserts. In the meantime, continuous daily resistance attacks on an area in the west of Iraq have forced the US occupation troops to flee that area which contains several mass graves for American dead solders. The occupiers have used heavy machines to make mass graves where dead solders were quickly buried. The mass graves area has attracted stray animals and they ate some of the bodies, which were partly buried. Hence, body parts and bones are spread all over the desert.

Anyway, many of these bodies were collected from different areas in Iraq. The majority of the dead bodies were of white skin and tall solders. Those solders were killed in Iraq and were not in anyway involved in making the decision to come to Iraq and be killed there. In addition the dead bodies were put in bags that are only used by the US army. The bodies will be delivered to the Iraqi Red Crescent or the Red Cross or any organization that respects its mission. These mass graves are an honest proof of the occupiers’ lies to hide the number of dead solders and where they’re about. These pictures are just of some of the unknown number of dead American solders. Now we are challenging the criminals of war and the occupiers to explain to the families who lost their sons for the occupation of Iraq whether their sons will be returned home, be buried in Iraq, or be thrown to the dogs to eat them.

Where Have All The Young Men Gone?

 
Many young Americans have already died in this illegal war. Their government sent them without adequate protection,1 mistreated them when they returned home wounded,2 and threatened to cut their pay.3 Their families and communities will miss them. The pain of their loss may one day be healed. Their bodies have been brought back in flag-draped coffins, hidden from public view as though there was shame in their death.4 But it is not their shame, but the shame of American leaders, military and civilian, who betrayed their country, by their propaganda and outright lies.
 
Early in the Iraq invasion, Mazen Dana, an award-winning cameraman of Palestinian descent, was shot by a soldier on a tank as he filmed near Baghdad on 17 August 2003.Mazen found U.S. troops covered in plastic bags in remote desert areas and he filmed them for a TV program A US military spokesman said that the inquiry had found troops respected their rules of engagement in the incident, but that Washington would not publish the full report.
 
His brother, Nazmi, said he was deliberately murdered for discovering mass graves of U.S. troops killed in Iraqi resistance attacks. "Mazen told me by phone few days before his death that he discovered a mass grave dug by U.S. troops to conceal the bodies of their fellow comrades killed in Iraqi resistance attacks," Nazmi told IslamOnline.net in exclusive statements.
 
"He also told me that he found U.S. troops covered in plastic bags in remote desert areas and he filmed them for a TV program. We are pretty sure that the American forces had killed Mazen knowingly to prevent him from airing his finding."5

In February 2004, Joe Vialls reported that, "According to a well-placed Pentagon source, the White House and corporate media are reporting less than half the actual American military deaths in Iraq. As of 3 February 2004, the 'official' media total stood at 528, while the real total at midnight on the same day was 1,188. This criminal discrepancy in the fatality figures is due to corrupt civilians in the Pentagon working for Paul Wolfowitz Inc."

In April 2004 this report appeared on Sky News and then swiftly disappeared:
Arrogantly assuming their actions would not be noticed [or could not be countered] by the Republic Guard, a few thousand U.S. Marines with battle tanks and other armor approached the 300,000 residents of Fallujah from the east and the west, drawn from existing Marine bases in Ar Ramadi and Baghdad. This was an inexcusably stupid tactical error, because as soon as the U.S. Marines closed on Fallujah and started shelling the unarmed women and children within, Republican Guard Special Forces units carried out lightning strikes on the weakened Marine bases in Ar Ramadi and Western Baghdad, destroying fuel dumps and killing 130 Americans in less than 12 hours.7

In December 2003, Captain Eric Holmes May published Ghost Troop, 3/7 Cavalry, describing the strange reporting and lack of reporting about the fall of Baghdad. US troops were being attacked and all the media could talk about was Private Jessica Lynch and, soon after, the photo-op mock demonstration of Iraqis "pulling down" Saddam's statue. The misdirection worked like a charm few asked any questions. Many troops were killed by the Iraqi Republican Guard but Americans were not told.8
 

Now finally there is evidence of the most grisly cover-up in US military history. Al-Basrah.net reports that eye witnesses in Falluja have claimed this morning (Wednesday, September 22) that some civilians have detected a mass grave in the north western sector of the city containing the bodies of sixteen people of foreign appearance.

The witnesses have informed the correspondent of the German News Agency that the inhabitants of that area have detected a grave this morning at 11 a.m. local time which contained the dead bodies of 16 foreigners who have recently been killed and probably belong to American soldiers who were buried in a ditch in the North West sector of the city.

The witnesses have clarified that the identity of the dead bodies which were hitherto remained unidentified, were found to be dressed in dresses similar to those worn by local Fallujans. The style of their haircut indicated that the dead were military personnel and the color of the hair and the face appearances suggested that they were foreigners.

The way by which these people were killed is so far unclear. An eye witness has said that the grave was detected when the local people have smelled a bad odor in the surrounding which urged them to dig up the place in order to reveal the source of the unpleasant smells.

The witnesses have also added that the local police have arrived to the scene and have prevented the civilians and journalist from approaching the grave and photographing the dead bodies.

Another mass grave found in Ramadi earlier this year

 

This statement by the Iraqi Islamic Army:

Baghdad - Iraq on the 7th of March 2004.
The photos were taken in the province of Ramadi, Iraq at a site that belongs to the Iraqi Ministry of Agriculture and was used until the end of January 2004 by the U.S. occupation forces as a military base. Due to the continuous attacks by the Iraqi Resistance, the enemy troops were forced to leave. On the 20th of February a scouting group visited the site and it's surrounding area to confirm the lack of enemy activity in this area.

During the mission the personnel noticed a lot of dogs & wolves in this desolate area digging and sniffing the grounds.

>After a closer look, tracks & markings of heavy vehicles were discovered along with trenches and digging area that were left unattended. Further exploration of the site revealed the infamous black body bags that we in Iraq have heard so many rumors about. In these bags we found the dead bodies or body parts of dead soldiers who died as a result of direct hits to the head and chest areas by bullets or shrapnel. These bodies have been buried for a few months only, and are definitely soldiers who belong to the occupying forces. They are soldiers who have been stripped of all their clothes and IDs. in order to avoid their identification if discovered. A large number of bodies have been discovered and have been removed from the sites where they were found and relocated to places only known to our active personnel. These bodies have been relocated for the sole purpose of uncovering the mass deception and lies that the U.S. administration & the British government have carried out since the beginning of this conflict. These bodies will be handed over to the Red Cross at the suitable time in order to be returned to their families for proper burial. The above statement is being released by the Iraqi Islamic Army, one of the active factions that are resisting the occupying forces led by the United States & Britain. Further information will be released at the appropriate time.

Even if the American Forces of Terror wanted to hide facts and manipulate the truth, there are certain unavoidable issues that have to be dealt with.

 

The human losses that are recorded are the following:  

  • The forces killed in front of people in public.

  • The ones killed in front of media representatives.

  • The bodies that take longer to be transferred and spend time in front of other troops.

All the rest of the casualties and declared injuries are dealt with in the following way:

  • They are first transferred to medical centers governed and protected by military intelligence and their colleagues are told that the injuries are serious or dangerous.

  • The bodies are secretly transferred to Germany or Qatar or another country in which they have a base and are frozen.

  • According to strict measures, the soldiers are forbidden to speak about their colleagues to their families or the family of the dead or injured troops. Their letters and emails are subjected to strict surveillance and censoring, as is any internet correspondence.

  • In some cases, where it is too complicated to transfer the body to Germany or Qatar , the military administration sees the necessity of declaring that the body was found in a river or was exposed to a heart attack and hence is not considered a war loss.

  • In cases where the dead soldier is a non-American casualty (green card applicants), the body is merely thrown into a mass grave inside one of the American camps.

There are other ways for the declaration of casualties without declaring war losses which include:

  • Drowning in the river.

  • Injury and death by fire.

  • Death by car accident.

  • Death by fever or unknown disease.

  • Death by a stroke during sleep.

What is missing now is the proof of these theories and some proof has been found by our brothers at one of the sites. They located a mass grave in a camp field that the American soldiers left during a swift withdrawal from the area as a result of the anger of the people. They left the graves without being able to bombard them or hide them and you can see the pictures here.

 

_______________________________________________

Now do we have proof of the mass graves that Mazen Dana photographed before his death? Do we have an explanation for the discrepancy in fatalities Joe Vialls reported? Perhaps so. Only a thorough INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION can provide definitive answers. We cannot expect the Pentagon to investigate itself.

We have other questions to consider as well. Is this the way Americans expect their war dead to be treated? Is this disrespect for the dead related to the careless attitude of not providing adequate body armor? Who are our leaders that can so cavalierly send young American men and women off to war with such ringing oratory and patriotic fervor and then leave them behind to rot in the desert? If this is how they treat the "nation's finest", how then do they view you and me? Do you wish for your son or daughter to be buried in an unmarked mass grave in a distant land? What are they trying to hide from us? If this is their attitude toward an American life, how easy would it be to murder 3,000 people on 9-11?

Much has been made of the glory and honor of serving and defending one's nation and the responsibility of never leaving a warrior behind. That must have been another day and another generation of leaders. Consider what lies ahead if these people continue to lead us.
