US Army AMMO DUMP ATTACK with secondarys
stills [animated] are from an 8 minute video when the ammo dump was just
getting going (i saw much of it 'live' on CNN, but from a great distance.
but massive explosions) the fires and explosions raged for hours and hours
through the night but what brought me back to it was the question of tactical
nukes and the question of israeli neutron bombs etc....
very good resource on this
"US occupation forces are accusing Iraqi translators of leaking
information on the location of arms and ammunition depots in the
Falcon military base (Al-Rashid military base) to the resistance.
“We are sure that two Iraqi translators working with US forces leaked
information and gave the base altitudes to the resistance. There
are also doubts that a third interpreter had left the base one day
before the bombing only and did not join again”.
The Iraqi source, who refused to reveal his identity, said that
dozens of American soldiers were killed in those explosions. The
source pointed out that six Iraqi translators were killed in those
explosions. American forces refused to hand over the bodies of the
dead Iraqis to their families without giving reasons." Ammo Dump
Explosions Investigation Ocotber 16, 2006
There are emailed reports, yet to be confirmed, that the number
of dead American soldiers at Al-Rashid military base (camp Falcon)
has reached 300. See below pictures on the extent of some of the
devastation there as a result of just a few Grad and Katyusha rockets
(cost: no more than $300 - Effect: estimated at $billions of munitions,
structures and American lives wasted). Wonder why there is a 'spike'
in American casualties this month?
