IRAQ

 

Anti-occupation resistance + Islamic extremists

The anti-occupation resistance which violent actions are we witnessing is the result of the sum of many ffactions: the surviving loyalists of Saddam Hussein, foreign fighters, the Islamic terror group Ansar al-Islam and al-Qaida. It is thought that their leader is the Jordanian-born terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Their goal is the chase out of Iraq of the forces that are occupying it. Their attacks (whic can be guerrilla-style or terror bombings) hit US and other coalition soldiers, the new Iraqi police, but unfortunately Iraqi civilians also. Guerrilla methods include ambushes, grenade and light gun attacks, and mine explosions. Their terror methods are:bomb, car bomb explosions and suicide car bombings. In 2004, some of the groups begun to kidnap foreigners and frequently executions followed.
