Iraqi troops around the port city of Basra came under
sustained fire late Wednesday after Allied commanders ordered an early
attack to stop Iraqi looting, pillaging, raping and cooking of live infants,
local sources have stated.
allied forces came across makeshift ovens in vacated Iraqi positions around
the city, which contained the partly cooked bodies of babies, said an
allied spokesperson speaking on condition of anonimity.
"Apparently, they have been without food supplies for weeks now
and have taken to snatching babies from local women and consuming them
in front of the mothers beore raping the women," the spokesperson
Official sources are still refusing to confirm the reports, but would
not rule them out as a trigger for the allied advance. But a military
spokesperson did confirm that Iraqi soldiers have been looting shops and
breaking into homes to steal from locals.
"There comes a point where you have to take action to defend the
local Iraqi population against intolerable abuses," said Major Slauter
Hardon of the British 7th Armoured brigade. "We reached that position
late on Wednesday."
However, he refused to comment on reports that British troops have been
turning away hordes of Iraqi soldiers who are seeking to surrender to
"I really cannot confirm that," he said, "but we simply
do not have the facilities or capability to cater for mass surrenders
this early in the campaign. Best thing for Iraqi soldiers no longer keen
to support this evil dictator would be to drop their weapons and go home."
Meanwhile, American convoys moving towards Umm Qasr have reportedly detained
a unit of fleeing Iraqi soldiers with incubators likely stolen from the
"The incubators still had babies inside," said an officer who
refused to identify himself to reporters. "At least in the last Gulf
war they had the decency to remove the babies before stealing the incubators.
Probably they intended to eat them at some point."
According to other unnamed sources, Allied advances have been slowed by
having to clear starving Iraqi soldiers kneeling in the middle of the
roads begging food from advancing American troops.
In late developments, a US military spokesman refused to confirm reports
that a plane carrying Saddam Hussein had escaped being shot down as the
toppled dictator fled to Jordan, because he has forced some of the "human
shield" peace protestors to board the plane with him.
Also, late Wednesday force commanders in the Basra area confirmed that
they had bombed "command and control" positions which had been
cleverly disguised as churches, hospitals and civillian housing.
According to others who have returned from bombing missions, Iraqi psychological
warfare brigades have taken to dressing themselves up as civillians and
lying on the ground around strategic villages pretending to have their
arms and legs blown off.
"We've been here before you know," one officer told reporters
at a post raid briefing. "We are not going to fall for such tired
"Bet you the next thing is the Iraqi elite Republican Guard will
begin shelling and bombing non-military targets in a pathetic effort to
incriminate us in these types of actions," allegedly said an unnamed
local commander, speaking on condition of anonymous anonimity, according
to unconfirmed reports.
The use of the term "allied commanders" means
commanders of the forces of countries which have allied with each other
in this war to liberate Iraq. It is not a cheap trick to play off the
use of the same term to describe command structures in the Second World
The use of the words "liberate Iraq" means allow
democratic structures be established. The issue of the sale of Iraqi natural
resources and infrastructure to multinational corporations at knockdown
prices is beyond the mission objectives of Allied commanders.
War fanatical members of the public who happen across this
report shoud beware that this is in fact a SATIRICAL article.
Satire is a form of wry black comedy which relates
essential truths in an oblique manner. Persons with war-focussed tunnel
