What the hell were SAS sqaddies doing driving around Basra dressed as Arabs, armed to the teeth in a car loaded with explosives? Who or what were they intending to blow up?
When stopped at an Iraqi check-point they reacted like any other "terrorists" by trying to shoot their way out - but were arrested after killing at least one of the police on duty.
Instead of allowing Iraqi authorities to investigate, army tanks and helicopters were then sent to their rescue, mounting an assault on the Iraqi police station.
A friendly occupation? What lies.
Let's hope this will enlarge the crowd at the world-wide dekmonstrations against the occupation this Saturday.
