Much better & stronger Iraqi Security forces
The success of the Iraqi forces to keep the security during the tenth of Moharam in Najaf and Karbala was an excellent achievement. It proved that the Iraqi forces are capable of keeping the security even during the difficult time. The security plan in the holy cities was fully Iraqi based without help from the multi-national forces. More than 2 million visitors for the holy shrines came during the tenth day of Moharam. Many terrorists have been arrested before they were able to carry out attacks. Explosives and weapons were confiscated.
In Kadhimiyah in Baghdad Iraqi volunteers arrested 5 terrorists bobby-trapped with explosive belts and handed them to the police. Two of them were women. One of these women cockroaches pretends that she is pregnant. Just before she went into the shrine to blow up her self and kills the visitors, the volunteers suspected some thing wrong and arrested her. The dirty was pregnant with explosives and not a baby! The other woman was old and when arrested she said they gave her the belt and she don't know what inside it. They asked her to wear it and pray for them inside the holy shrine!
In Ramadi at least 97 suspected terrorists were arrested by the US and Iraqi forces. Many others were arrested in Mosel. One Egyptian confessed that he was making explosives for the terrorists.
South of Baghdad the Iraqi forces arrested a serious criminal called Aamer Addaami who was a top security officer for Saddam and was responsible for killing and arresting many Iraqis during and after the regime. His last crime was kidnapping 3 Iraqi National Guards from the previous Badar militia (Shias). The three men were died under the torture. Their corpses were found with their legs and arms cut from the opposite sides.
In Baghdad the Iraqi police found a house used for storage of explosives and weapons near the green zone. On the same time the Iraqi police killed two serious terrorists who were involved in many beheading and kidnapping. Aadel Mojtaba (Abo reem) also worked for Zarqawi group for creating internet sites and publishing their propaganda.
In Diyala north-east Baghdad the Iraqi forces arrested Sadek Fati who is responsible for a terrorist net facilitating the entry of the insurgent from Iran and Syria. In Diyala as well the Iraqi forces arrested an important agent in the Zarqawi group called Abofiras who was a security member of the dictator regime.
Many other terrorists have been arrested, however still big work is needed from the new government especially in the South of Baghdad, Ramadi, Mosel, Diyala and Baghdad. It looks though the rope became tighter around Zarqawi.
Lastly today the Iraqi forces received the complete patrolling and security in the centre of Baghdad from the US forces. Good step however the US should help to arm with the best equipment the Iraqi forces including air space policing by helicopters and fighters as well as tanks and heavy armoured vehicles plus communication and hi tech equipments!
