To The Images "Khobar Towers" And "Beirut Marine Barracks"...

...We may now have to add "Foreward Base Falcon." There, 13 km outside the so-called Green Zone in Bagdhad, on the night of Oct. 10, 2006, a coordinated mortar and rocket attack reportedly reduced the ammo/gas/supply dump to rubble and killed as many as 300 USer troops.The first I heard of it--and I'm an assiduous student of the USer foray into disaster in 'our' ICORP in Iraw--was today, Oct. 21.

(The link to the source of this report--which includes a casualty list from the attack--is under the headline of this post. Mad Props & Thanks to Atriot correspondent 'mimi' in Berlin for the heads-up. I do not think it's a coincidence that she does not live inside the sway of ths SCUM. Photo: Novosti Press Agency)

i mentioned sumpin about that at one of the symposia at the eschacon in phila,pa; it was regarded as 'unexceptional', i guess, cuz there was never any follow-up...

but i think you're absolutely right, and that we, the Peope, need to function as 'reporters' on the 'beats' we know best...
