Remember all those terrorist who escaped from Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison last month? Yeah, well one of them had a score to settle with the person who had dobbed him in ….his brother (a policeman). The angry brother organised a group of equally angry militants to execute his sibling and then blow up his house and car. There goes Christmas.

OK, you have to give Hatim Kadim Salman at least a slap on the back. The Iraqi dude has spent around $30,000 to build himself a helicopter so he can protect his country’s borders. Bless. Hmm, whether it will actually get off the ground ..????
Kleenex time Loons. A few days ago this young fellow decided to audition for X Factor Australia. Emmanuel Kelly, who is 17, started out life in an orphanage in Iraq. He and his brother had been found in a park, in a shoebox, abandoned most probably because both had been born with severe birth defects, thanks to chemical warfare. Enter Moira Kelly, who originally flew them to Australia for surgery, but ended up adopting the two boys. This is his story and song ….
Psst You may recognize Moira Kelly, she is the guardian of conjoined twins, Trishna and Krishna, who were successfully separated in 2009 after she found them in a Bangladesh orphanage. Moira heads the Children First Foundation and this is her story.
OK people no need for alarm but a Chicago cop who served in Iraq and Afghanistan says there is a growing gang culture in the military and we need to get ready for gang members coming home with military training. Yep, he claims the Bagram Air Base is friggin covered in Chicago gang graffiti and not just from one gang, from several. The concern is when they return home and back to gang life they will be equipped with military tactics that they can ( and most probably will) use against police, other gangs and the public. Rambo!
Welcome to freedom Peter Moore .The computer expert, who has been a hostage in Iraq for two and a half years ,was released today. Sadly his bodyguards were murdered earlier in the year.
The mystery of missing Gulf War pilot Scott Speicher has finally been solved. For 18 years mystery, rumors and suspicion have surrounded the disappearance of Lt Cdr Michael “Scott” Speicher who was shot down over Iraq during the first night of fighting in 1991. Many believed he had been captured and was still alive in a jail somewhere in Iraq.This seemed plausible, as no body was ever discovered and his empty flight suit, found near the crash site, looked relatively intact. The Discovery of the intials MMS carved in the wall of an Iraqi prison a few years later,further fueled the speculation that he was alive. The military continued to investigate the fate of Speicher even during the second invasion in 2003 when a special unit was devoted to searhing for him. However, two Iraqi civilians recently provided new leads, claiming that the pilot had been buried near the crash scene by nomadic Beduin tribesmen.The discovery of bones in the desert and subsequent DNA testing of the them have now closed a chapter in the search for Scott Speicher. Now officially identified, the family, including his wife and two children, can now have closure.
