270 GI's Killed In Gas Attack?

Resistance guerrillas attacked U.S. in retaliation
for Americans gassing civilians in Fallujah.
Resistance Fighters Hit American
Base In Balad With Chemical
Warheads - Report Not

JUS has learned that Resistance fighters took revenge for their fellow citizens of Fallujah early Sunday morning by hitting the American Al-Bakr base in Balad with 4 rockets carrying chemical warheads.

Sources inside the base confirmed the presence of a white substance after the explosions of the rockets which came at the time when a large contingency of American soldiers were preparing to leave for Mosul. Approximately 2500 American soldiers occupy this base, which plays a pivotal role in providing logistics and personnel support to American occupation forces in the northern, north eastern and north western zones of Iraq.

According to this inside source, 270 Americans were killed in the attack. Black Hawk and Chinook aircraft took over 3 hours to evacuate the dead and the wounded. The Americans have cordoned off the area with red tape and started to spray a liquid over the chemical substance to neutralize it. The specific chemical used is not yet known however the damage is said to have extended to surrounding trees, which were either burnt or wilted.

This attack came as a response to the American chemical attack on Fallujah a few days ago. At press time, there is not one word in mainstream press about this large scale attack. Curiously, a quick search on Google netted virtually no information at all on the Iraq war - a war that is taking American lives daily.

This report has not yet been independently verified and is considered preliminary at this point. We consider the source reliable and are therefore releasing this information publicly as we continue to verify its validity. If this report is proved to be correct, the stakes inside Iraq have just been significantly raised. (JUS)

PHH

This is really bad news.

Your Google is broken 22.Nov.2004 16:39

"Curiously, a quick search on Google netted virtually no information at all on the Iraq war..."

Are you sure you spelled "Iraq" correctly? I seem to get volumes of info.

crazy talk

us gassed its own by accident if anything.

This is a CIA/MOSSAD Sponsored HOAX 23.Nov.2004 12:22

HOAX!!!!!!

Two items:

1) Excerpt from the original (Sept 1) article:

"Curiously, a quick search on Google netted virtually no information at all on the Iraq
war - a war that is taking American lives daily." (wrong - a lie - see below from the 1st email allegedly from JUS:)

"We consider the source reliable and are therefore releasing this information publicly as we continue to verify its validity." (This is not enough basis for JUS to post the 'report' without first checking it out. Makes good 'shock copy' headlines...but plays right into the cabal's lies, using your website to send a message: "Iraq uses/has chemical weapons. Bush was right all along. All is justifed. Besides, it was on Rense.com."

2) Now, do a Google Search for "Bruce Kennedy - JUS"

See: Disinformation: CIA Posing as Al-Qaeda?... counter the damage done by Azzam.com, JUS published some damage control, which can be best described as the work of some other "Bruce Kennedy" whose experience ...
www.informationclearinghouse.info/article4513.htm - 17k - Cached - Similar pages

Knowing your 7 million+ visitors a month and commitment to sharing relevant information not available on mainstream media - these news psy-ops gangsters are trying to use your site as "disinfo distribution center" for their purposes - in such cases as the above story.

3) The *timing* of the release of this psy-op sent to you fits perfectly with countering the info about to come out about the full truth of the slaughter in Falluja. The story is: the US used Chemical weapons in Falluja.

Interesting that the report is about the *alleged* "Iraq use of chem weapons"....when the truth is, over 50,000 radiation equivalent of Hiroshima/Nagasaki bombs ARE CONFIRMED TO HAVE BEEN USED BY the USA on IRAQI citizens - NOT TO MENTION ON CIVILIANS IN AFGHANISTAN, YUGOSLAVIA and KOSOVO.

4) Bottom line.....the Iraq 'use of chemical weapons' news 'story' has NEVER been confirmed...even the one originally posted on Sept. 1, 2004.

The really important truths to keep in mind are reported, then forgotten...while individuals focus on meaningless 'side track' issues...without giving thought to the context of the entire situation.

a) Iraq was *accused* of having WMD. Not true. We all know this now.

b) The USA DID USE AND CONTINUES TO USE WMD, Phosphous, Chemical Weapons, DU on Iraq - equal to 50,000 Hiroshima bombs to date.

Do a search on 'effects of DU', radiation, US Government Studies on Bomb tests; radiation....and get the full picture of what is really being done in Iraq. That is the REAL story...day after day, ignored. If that were fully understood, it might be enough to reel these guys in...but not without shared understanding.

The entire situation, the war, including the media lies and obscuring, dis-info, "no body count', etc....is pure madness.

"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"...where everyone 'on both sides of the desk' were totally insane, but no one noticed, because they thought it was 'normal'.
