Iraqi Violence Escalation: Inside Job

"British troops fired on crowds throwing petrol bombs, burning furniture and tyres which set at least one tank on fire. The fighting broke out after two British soldiers, allegedly dressed as Arabs, opened fire on a police patrol killing one officer and wounding another.

Violence erupted in Basra this afternoon following the arrest of two British soldiers for allegedly killing one policeman and wounding another.

British troops fired on crowds throwing petrol bombs, burning furniture and tyres which set at least one tank on fire. Reuters witnesses said a British soldier was engulfed by flames as he scrambled out of the burning tank, being pelted with stones by the crowd. Two Iraqis were killed in the violence, an Interior Ministry official said. The fighting broke out after two British soldiers, allegedly dressed as Arabs, opened fire on a police patrol killing one officer and wounding another.

The Ministry of Defence confirmed that two military personnel were detained by Iraqi authorities today, but would not comment on rumours that the soldiers were working undercover.

One of the men sat with a bandage on his head after they were detained, a Reuters photographer said. His trousers were stained with blood spots.

A witness said after the clash with troops people drove through the streets of Basra with loudhailers demanding that the undercover Britons remain in detention and be sent to jail.

Iraqi authorities were already on high alert today as Shia pilgrims poured into the holy city of Karbala for a religious festival expected to attract more than 1 million people.

Officials in Baghdad also announced that one of Saddam Hussein's nephews had been sentenced to life in prison for funding the insurgency, and would stand trial on other charges. His trial had been kept secret by the authorities.

Around 6,000 police officers and troops were stationed around Karbala, 50 miles south of Baghdad, and the streets were closed to all vehicles in a bid to prevent suicide car bombers.

Authorities said they had already uncovered a cache of explosives and arrested four insurgents for allegedly planning an attack on the pilgrims today.

Rahman Mishaw, a police spokesman said the explosives were found on farmland on the outskirts of Karbala. He said three "non-Iraqi Arabs" were arrested along with a man armed with several hand grenades who was walking with a procession of pilgrims.

A recent wave of bombings and shootings, which started last Wednesday, left more than 150 people dead and 500 wounded in Baghdad. One car bomb killed at least 88 people in Iraq's worst single attack since February.

Religious gatherings have become particular targets. In December, more than 50 pilgrims were killed in a series of bombings in Karbala and in March, at least 181 people died in coordinated bombings of Shia pilgrims in Karbala and Baghdad. Both attacks were blamed on Sunni extremists.

Mohammed al-Hasnawi, the Karbala police chief, said more than 1 million people were expected to gather today to celebrate Imam al-Mahdi's birth in 868 AD. Shia Muslims believe the Imam vanished without a trace and will return before judgment day to lead the faithful in a battle for a true and just Islamic state.

In Baghdad, the Iraqi government announced that Saddam Hussein's nephew, Ayman Sabawi, had been "sentenced to life in prison for funding militants and possessing and manufacturing roadside bombs".

Mr Sabawi, the son of Saddam's half-brother Sabawi Ibrahim al-Hassan, who served as a presidential adviser before the invasion, was captured in early May. But authorities had not announced that his trial was under way.

The Iraqi central criminal court in Baghdad said Mr Sabawi would face a second trial - starting at the beginning of November- for other crimes to which he allegedly confessed during his pre-trial interrogation.

His colleague, Tareq Khalaf Mizal, arrested along with Mr Sabawi, was sentenced to six years' jail.

Meanwhile, Iraq's former defence minister, Hazim Shaalan, is expected to be arrested this week in connection with the disappearance of more than $1bn.

Mr Shaalan served under the interim prime minister, Iyad Allawi. It is not known whether the money disappeared after the fall of Saddam Hussein or when he was in power.

Radhi al-Radhi, the head of Iraq's Commission on Public Integrity, said he handed a file of evidence against Mr Shaalan to Iraq's central criminal court two months ago and expected a warrant for his arrest to be issued in the next week.

Saddam and three co-defendants are to go on trial before Iraq's special tribunal on October 19, charged with ordering the massacre of Shias in 1982 in Dujail, a town north of Baghdad, after a failed assassination attempt on the former Iraqi leader.

He faces the death penalty if found guilty. Saddam also faces around a dozen other trials for alleged crimes committed by his regime, including the gassing of Kurds in Halabja and suppressing a Shia uprising in the south in 1991.

Your Emotions Can Lead to Illness or Healing

Your Emotions Can Lead to Illness or Healing

Even the conservative Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that 85 percent of all diseases have an emotional element, but the actual percentage is probably much higher. Other scientists and medical doctors who have left their conventional medical and scientific dogmas behind -- once they saw the proof for themselves -- claim that 100 percent of your current health status is due to your mental and emotional reactions to events that take place during your lifetime.

Notice that this ACE study was published nearly 10 years ago? So how come you haven’t heard all about it already?

For the same reason that Dr. Geerd Hamer’s breakthrough “German New Medicine” hasn’t hit mainstream, even though he’s been at it for nearly 30 years. Or the reason why Bruce Lipton’s “New Biology” isn’t taught at schools everywhere even though his research spans across the past 20 years.

Removing an ingrained dogma is difficult, takes time, and requires people who are strong enough to teach an unpopular truth. People died for saying the earth was round not flat, and Dr. Hamer has been imprisoned for his medical treachery, which has an astounding overall 92 percent success rate.

However, I believe we’re nearing the point of breaking through. Soon, there will be no denying the fact that your physical health is deeply connected to your mental projections and beliefs. I think this is exciting news – it puts the power back in your hands! But it may scare many who are not ready to take responsibility for how they feel, what they think, and their beliefs about their world.


Based on impressive new discoveries regarding the body's subtle energies, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) has been proven successful in thousands of clinical cases. It applies to just about every emotional, health and performance issue you can name and it often works where nothing else will.

I taught myself this technique about a year ago. I have used it on others from anything from headaches and menstral pains, to cigarette cravings, to chronic anxiety which was due to a past of repeated sexual abuse.

I used it on myself to get rid of the anger I was holding inside myself after a serious car accident (which was causing physical pain in my head), and to get over a bad break up.

It's free to use, you can learn the basics yourself from downloading the FREE EFT Manual here:

Our Presidents, Senators, Congressman Molest Children.

Conspiracy of Silence & The Franklin Cover-Up

Conspiracy of Silence, a documentary listed for viewing in TV Guide Magazine was to be aired on the Discovery Channel, on May 3 1994. This documentary exposed a network of religious leaders and Washington politicians who flew children to Washington D.C. for sex orgies. Many children suffered the indignity of wearing nothing but their underwear and a number displayed on a piece of cardboard hanging from their necks when being auctioned off to foreigners in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Toronto, Canada. At the last minute before airing, unknown congressmen threatened the TV Cable industry with restrictive legislation if this documentary was aired. Almost immediately, the rights to the documentary were purchased by unknown persons who ordered all copies destroyed.

A copy of this videotape was furnished anonymously to former Nebraska state senator and attorney John De Camp who made it available to retired FBI Agent Ted L. Gunderson. While the video quality is not top grade, this tape is a blockbuster in what is revealed by its participants involved.

This information is important to us today because while we all go out and fight for our causes, we are doing so not knowing that this activity is still happening under all our noses.

Go to and search for "Conspiracy of Silence" to watch.

NOTE: This is the "sugar coated" version - for even deeper down the rabbit hole - read the BOOK "The Franklin Cover-Up: Child Abuse, Satanism, and Murder in Nebraska" by Senator John W. Decamp
