Default Iraqi soldier kills 2 US soldiers in northern Iraq

Quote:
BAGHDAD An Iraqi soldier opened fire on a U.S. military team Saturday, killing two American soldiers and wounding three, the U.S. military said, in an attack that could sharpen worries about the extent of militant infiltration in Iraq's security forces.
Iraqi officials described the attacker who was killed in the gunbattle as a soldier who also served as a Sunni Muslim preacher for his unit near Mosul, which is one of the last urban strongholds for Sunni insurgents.
Such an ambush could increase pressure on the Shiite-led government to try to root out possible turncoats and slow efforts to bring Sunni militiamen into the police and military as rewards for helping battle al-Qaida in Iraq and other insurgent factions.
But any possible slowdown of the Sunni outreach will meet resistance from Washington, which sees the sectarian reconciliation as essential for Iraq's stability and to keep security gains from rolling back.
A U.S. military statement said the attacker was killed after firing on the U.S. soldiers near the entrance to a combat outpost 12 miles (20 kilometers) south of Mosul.
A separate gunman fired at other U.S. soldiers at the outpost, then fled, according to Maj. Derrick Cheng, a spokesman for American forces in northern Iraq.
In the past, attackers have used military and police uniforms to bypass checkpoints and gain access to heavily guarded bases. But several Iraqi military officials said the gunman was a low-ranking Iraqi soldier.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
It was the latest case of a member of Iraq's security forces targeting U.S. troops. On Feb. 24, two Iraqi police officers in Mosul opened fire on a visiting U.S. military team, killing one American soldier and an interpreter. The gunmen remain fugitives.
Earlier this week, a U.S. military spokesman, 1st Lt. John Brimley, called the February shooting "definitely an anomaly."
Saturday's attack follows the deadliest month for U.S. troops in Iraq since September with 18 American soldiers dying in Iraq in April.
Elsewhere, U.S.-backed Iraqi troops arrested the leader of a Sunni paramilitary group north of Baghdad in the town of Duluiyah.
Mullah Nadhim al-Jubouri, and his two brothers, Yassir and Thakir, were arrested on warrants accusing them of terrorism, the U.S. military said, without elaborating.
The move was likely to spark anger among members of the so-called Awakening Councils, which have turned against al-Qaida in Iraq in what is considered a key factor in the drop in violence.
The Iraqi government has assumed control of the groups from the U.S. military, but many of the Sunni guards accuse it of failing to pay them and of making unfair arrests.
In the northern city of Kirkuk, security patrols were boosted after an attempted suicide bombing Friday was foiled by guards at the last moment at a Shiite mosque.
Authorities identified the would-be attacker as a Syrian teenager who they believe was recruited by al-Qaida in Iraq. The suspect 19-year-old Ammar Afif Hamada was tackled on the doorsteps of the mosque while it was filled with worshippers.
The dramatic capture was welcome good news for Iraqi authorities after a spike in blasts by suspected Sunni insurgents that have claimed more than 200 lives since late April and raised question about the durability of recent security gains.
It also could offer investigators insights into insurgent operations in northern Iraq and smuggling routes from Syria long considered one of the main pipelines to replenish insurgent ranks from across the region.
Hamada traveled from Syria to the northern city of Mosul about a week ago, then arrived Wednesday in Kirkuk, where he was moved from safe house to safe house in mainly Sunni areas, according to a police officer involved in the investigation. The officer spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to release the information.
Kirkuk police chief Maj. Gen. Torhan Abdul-Rahman Youssef confirmed the details and said Hamada has been an al-Qaida operative in Iraq for the past four years and has confessed to participation in many operations in Diyala province and Baghdad.
Hamada, meanwhile, was being treated for serious head injuries at a hospital in Kirkuk after being beaten by guards and worshippers at the scene, police said.
Tensions have risen in Kirkuk as Kurdish leaders seek to incorporate it into their semiautonomous area, making it one of the most politically sensitive issues for Iraqi leaders and for U.S. military commanders preparing to withdraw their troops by the end of 2011.
The showdown is so volatile that Kirkuk was excluded from regional elections in January and the United Nations has offered a proposal for compromise plans.
U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, speaking on CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS" in a segment to air Sunday, described Kirkuk's ethnic rifts as one of Iraq's most complicated puzzles.
"From an Arab-Kurd point of view, Kirkuk is a bigger problem by far than Mosul," he said. "Mosul is really still a security problem from the standpoint of al-Qaida is still using that as kind of their last redoubt, if you will. But, you know, I think (the Iraqis) will continue to work these things through."
F it, let's just GTFO and let the place implode

it sucks to lose even one soldier, but think rationally for a second: it only happened twice this year, that's two times, out of over 100k iraqi troops, 100k us troops, and millions of daily interactions between the two. that ain't bad. in addition, we had an american muslim us troop who tossed a grenade in a tent and killed a couple troops. what are we to do, oh no, off ourselves before we fail, because you know, we're obviously a danger to ourselves!! i'd make a bet: more us troops murdered us troops than iraqi troops did, since 2003.





reactionary noob pussies in this thread

don't make me say troop again, cause i may off myself. troop. troop. bang.

Once we leave, the terrorists will regroup and take over again, then plan to attack us.

Wow, then we spent trillions of dollars for nothing!

It's THEY'RE.

It's painfully clear at juncture that these people are far more interested in slaughtering each other than forming a functional state. I'd wager that only good reason we have for sticking around it to prevent a power vacuum for Iran(or Saudi Arabia) to fill. But of course perhaps allowing the Sunnis and Shiites to fight is good for us strategically, let them waste time, money, bodies and hardware on each other not us. It really just seems like they want to kill and they don't really care who...

That still doesn't justify the use of nuclear weapons.

I'm sure you aren't serious, but I can't even imagine if things came down to that. I absolutely hate it when people make ignorant statements like "Glassing" anything. I know this is the internet and serious business, but wiping out an entire region is seriously a horrible idea.

I used to be in the military and I realize that it is the actions of the few that make the whole look bad.

Sorry if you take my words personally, but I really get irritated when people say that.

Trust me, if the US were judged by the actions of the few, we would be a hole in the planet by now.

No worries, I understand, I don't take anything personally.

You know I'm joking.

Besides, I'm sure they could use smaller tactical nukes for maximum effectiveness.

Oh of course, most of the world would love to put us under their thumb in a heartbeat. But at the same time, who's the UN's "go to" player...

We've reaped the benefits of our fathers and grandfathers defending this country, while everyone sits around living fat, the rest of the world suffers.


Wait till the muslims take over Europe, France is what? 80% muslim now? They always talk about going to denmark in the movies to smoke, but has anyone been there lately? Towelhead city.

It's all fun and games until your religion tells you to that everyone that doesn't believe needs to die.


You know if I even posted half the **** I hear or even the pics I get emailed....It would flip most peoples' world upside down, just even what I hear from 5th group alone.
