Dan, from riehlworldview has a link to an anti-war site which claims to post reports from Iraqi “resistance” fighters:
     Iraqi Resistance Report for events of Friday, 25 March 2005
Translated and/or compiled by Muhammad Abu Nasr, member editorial board
The Free Arab Voice.

Friday, 25 March 2005.
Al-Anbar Province.
Al-Fallujah.

Intermittent fighting took place in the northern neighborhoods al-Jawlan and the area of the sheep market in al-Fallujah, 60km west of Baghdad on Thursday between Iraqi Resistance fighters and US and Iraqi puppet troops. A captain in the puppet so-called "Iraqi national guard" told Mafkarat al-Islam that the fighting left seven US troops dead and 11 more wounded, and it killed nine Iraqi puppet soldiers and wounded five more of their number.

The captain said that four Resistance fighters were martyred in the battles.

The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam met an administrative official in the city police who told him, "it is quite impossible to accept the theory that Resistance fighters have come into the city, because 90 percent of the people of al-Fallujah are members of the Resistance. So if we wanted to control the city completely, we would have to expel all the population or wipe all of them out, and that's fundamentally impossible and irrational." The correspondent reported that on Friday security measures were tightened at the entrances and exits from al-Fallujah.
Given the level of veracity of the other pages on the site, this is recommended purely for entertainment value. For even more enjoyment, read Dan's riff on the report:
     On this glorious night we engaged the despotic forces of Satan Bush using the new Russian made night vision goggles smuggled in by our friends in Syria. Unfortunately, in what is sure to be found out as a Jew plot, the Russians, they did not so much tell our Syrian brothers that the little black lens caps to keep out the demon sand were to be removed before the battle.

Praise Allah, my brothers, it was a glorious night for we have gained many new martyrs in our illustrious cause. We looked right into the eyes of the American devil, well, we did not quite look into his eyes, as we were unable to see too very much, what with those damnable Russian Jew lens caps on. But still praise be to the troops of Al-Hadithah now all become martyrs.
Here’s the rest. As the author might say, we implore you, read the whole thing.

Can't quite bring myself to read that drivel, sorry. My mental stomach is too sensitive.

And my stomach hurts from laughing. Consorting and coppertops!

One man's drivel is another man's cool...De gustibus, etc.

*I* liked the macrame inserts on the Osama vests.
This guy is funny...he managed to catch the tone of the real thing and bring it just enough over the top to be fun.

The "anti-war" site is fascinating. Apparently anti-war has something to do with gleefully promoting the macabre yet dubious exploits of self proclaimed killers. Is anti-war an antonym for pro-peace?

Dymphna said...

That's a great question, annoy mouse!

Kind of reminds me of the re-frame of abortion rights to pro-choice.

Seems like the only real pro-peace faction is the Quakers. They have the experience and the bona fides to make their position intelligible and morally coherent. I don't agree with it and would find its implementation alarming, but I respect it because the position arises from the desire for peace, not the desperate self-hatred of the anti-Western trustfund kids.
