    Troops Reportedly Gassing Falujah

    FALLUJAH, November 10 ( & News Agencies) - US troops are reportedly using chemical weapons and poisonous gas in its large-scale offensive on the Iraqi resistance bastion of Fallujah, a grim reminder of Saddam Hussein’s alleged gassing of the Kurds in 1988.

    “The US occupation troops are gassing resistance fighters and confronting them with internationally-banned chemical weapons,” resistance sources told Al-Quds Press Wednesday, November 10.

    The fatal weapons led to the deaths of tens of innocent civilians, whose bodies litter sidewalks and streets, they added.

    “They use chemical weapons out of despair and helplessness in the face of the steadfast and fierce resistance put up by Fallujah people, who drove US troops out of several districts, hoisting proudly Iraqi flags on them. Resistance has also managed to destroy and set fire to a large number of US tanks and vehicles.

    “The US troops have sprayed chemical and nerve gases on resistance fighters, turning them hysteric in a heartbreaking scene,” an Iraqi doctor, who requested anonymity, told Al-Quds Press.

    “Some Fallujah residents have been further burnt beyond treatment by poisonous gases,” added resistance fighters, who took part in Golan battles, northwest of Fallujah.

    In August last year, the United States admitted dropping the internationally-banned incendiary weapon of napalm on Iraq, despite earlier denials by the Pentagon that the “horrible” weapon had not been used in the three-week invasion of Iraq.

    After the offensive on Iraq ended on April 9 last year, Iraqis began to complain about unexploded cluster bombs that still litter their cities.

    Media Blackout

    The sources said that the media blackout, the banning of Al-Jazeera satellite channel and subjective embedded journalists played well into the hands of the US military.

    “Therefore, US troops opted for using internationally banned weapons to soften the praiseworthy resistance of Fallujah people.

    “More and more, the US military edits and censors reports sent by embedded journalists to their respective newspapers and news agencies,” the sources added.

    Iraqi Defense Minister Hazem Al-Shaalan had said Tuesday, November 9, would be decisive.

    “Al-Shaalan declaration meant nothing but the use of chemical weapons and poisonous gases to down Fallujah fighters,” observers told Al-Quds Press.

    The reported gassing stands as a grim reminder of Saddam Hussein's alleged gassing of the Kurdish community in the northern city of Halbja in 1988.

    While the West insisted that Saddam was the one behind the heinous attack, the ousted president pointed fingers at the then Iranian regime.

    I don't know about you, but my bullshit meter just broke

    articale taken from
  2. yep , the "tilt" light has just come on on mine aswell.
  3. Trouble is, what actually happened is irrelevant. If this is believed by the target audience the damage has been done Again our media ops fail to do the job ...
  4. this is true, the only true part possibly.. but.. the propaganda war continues
  5. The poison gas story is a good one. As you can imagine, we get some great stories about Ops in Fallujah. Some other ones passing across our desks include (these are genuine headlines):

    1. Isreali tanks seen entering Fallujah.
    2. Americans responsible for kidnapping of Margaret Hassan.
    3. Hydrogen bomb in Fallujah kills mother and child (we can't work out how big the H bomb was mind you that could be this precise).

    The facts do not matter to the bad guys - they just go for sensational headlines to rake in the viewers.

    By the way, good work to the Sapper Slappers in Shai"Biza". Loved the story and the pictures, will they do a roadshow to Baghdad?

    Clearly it fell off the back of a transporter and landed on them, thereby breaking its fall and preventing it going off....
