I remember going on my first MITT tasking to 10 Div in being a bit apprehensive having been told that their last general who had ordered them to prepare for ops in Baghdad had been shot for his troubles. We were escorting his replacement - all eight of us.
Neednt have worried they were most accomodating - I was even offered some bum-love by one of their storemen, which was rather touching really - he was quite insistent :p

I'm sure the death of those two American soldiers has been quite the masturbatory fantasy for you.

Ignorant twit. Do yourself a favor and delete your comment or go do the world a favor and eat a bullet.

I find it strange that Iraqi Offical knew the killer had links to militant groups. Has US Int/Sy fcuked up and not identified the individual as a threat?

I suggest for any future joint patrols that the Iraqi be issued with simunition. If he is legit during a contact there will still be fire being laid down to the enemy, albeit non-lethal. If he is not legit then at least he will be easily found out without losing any troops.

Could this whole incident just be someone who has lost the plot and shot these blokes out of madness rather than terrorist intent? Seems the more plausible to me.

This very sad.However given the infiltration of the Iraqi security forces,it may happen again.It's hard enough on patrol,watching those outside the brick trying to do you harm,without worrying about people,inside the brick,thinking of the same thing.Stay safe gentelemen,if possible.

There were those five US snipers who all got shot at suspiciously close range a while back. What's odd is this one got caught. Wonder if that was mixed sect unit?

With the "Awakening" thing, were the folks who were formally counting coup on US troops are now getting paid to pursue more dedicated "AQI" members it's remarkable that more chaps haven't fallen this way.

Im amased it hasnt happened much more, just wondering how many contacts of joint operations are down to inside information. What ever happend to the Septic Muslim soldier who threw grenades into the O group of Septic Officers soon after the war started?

It has, in my unit.

The guy got caught about three months later at a checkpoint.

We did a few joint patrols with Iraqi army and worked even more with Iraqi police - a lot of JAM getting through, but I sometimes felt that the untrustworthy ones were the keen guys making an effort to impress,turning up every day on time and the ones you could depend on were your more typical choagies, not bothering some days - never on time. Cynical I know but with the corruption rife in the system I think Id be a bit less keeen to go to work, youd need to be desperate for the money or desperate for something else.
One Iraqi Arif used to love to say we were welcome another year - then hed kick us out himself.

Crasser than some of the other posts in the thread? Hmm perhaps, although I have yet to see numerous reports of British troops killing innocent Iraqi (!! Shurely shome mishtake) civilians.
Oh was it because I didn't use a smiley how insensative of me, FFS.
Still it's your perogative so dig out blind!

Yes it was crass and offensive. You haven't looked very hard if you haven't seen any accusations of British troops killing Iraqi civilians, however this was not the place for such statements.

Nothing to do with smileys, some things can't be "smilied" away

Yes, it's my perogative so if you don't like it, feel free to go elsewhere and/or complain to the COs.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out.
