"They"

“They” came in more than ten cars, each car had four Armed men in it, they closed the street from both sides, they entered the house and abducted a young man, they put him in the trunk of a Car, I called 130 six times, continuously the phone rang without any answer.

I was standing in the Roof with my AK-47 and just stared at them.

This is the first time I witness such an event, and I felt so hopeless, there were too many of them.

I cannot bear this happening to the lives of real people -

Maybe those stupid tv ads need to be changed.

"Don't bother to call 130, just watch and be afraid, be VERY AFRAID for you might be next and we won't be there to help you. If you believe this ad then you believe everything"

I wonder how much money was squandered on those ads and billboards???

NIW, "they" are Militia's I have no idea who they represent.

Anna mr, Too much presure.

Chikitita, Well you should point that to the U.S. Congress giving money to L3 for these useless adds.

Mariam, pray for Iraq.

Rubin, The Family is 900 miles to the West, my wife left Baghdad six hours before the incident.

Zappy,

My understanding this summer, there are many fleeing or if they do not have the funds, moving into refugee camps into other areas of Iraq. Is this something you have heard about and could you discuss this more, if you have information and insight?

Miriam (Yes, I always pray for beloved Iraq, everyday, few times a day)

This sounds terrible. At such odds, you need a bunch of men with rocket launchers and not an AK. Damn.

"They" kidnapped my neighbor few days ago, my father told me by phone.

"They" are every where. "They" are now the real leaders of Iraq.

Please be careful! My prayers to you and your family

There are over 100 000 foreign soldiers that are not able to stop them. Over 100 000 armed foreign mercenaries that are not able to stop them. Over ??? Iraqi police that are not stopping them either. Very fishy indeed.

Add the supposed 300000 Iraqi troops. To me the only conclusion is that they operate with the tacit approval of the IP and the US military. How else do they navigate through the roadblocks and checkpoints without ever being caught?

Be careful, Zappy, be careful. I hear that Sadr can't even control factions of his own militia, although that might be propaganda from his office: he was grilled by Arab journalists on the militias, and he said that he had given orders for them not to attack and kidnap citizens. Forgive me for being cynical, Mr. Sadr, but I don't believe a word of this. . .

Again, be careful! I think about your safety everyday.

Yep Bruno, THEY are part of the killing that is going on. And therefore choose to let it go on.

My prayers are with you. Ive been reading your posts for a while now and appreciate every one of them but hadn't contemplated to make the decision to post on your website until now...but this message only led me to do so for many reasons. May you and your family be protected from all this trouble and madness.

I believe the one reason Nadia spoke of the 100,000 foreign soldiers and Iraqi police is because both are unknowledgable of the situation. 'They' is a random word implying any murderer on the streets; US soldiers wouldnt know who 'they' are any more than Iraqis do. My worry is not whether Iraqi forces can capture them but whether Iraqi forces are able to set aside their differences and allow that to build on to the REAL target together. Citizens have some sectarian authority to aid to and this is troubling when the pathway is meant to head towards unity which can be vital in reducing the amount of criminals; this is dependent on what each individual Iraqi wants for his country and I know inside of us we want alot of things but we need to choose the more important ones first.
