BAGHDAD Multi-National Division - Baghdad Soldiers responded to an explosion northwest of the Iraqi capital Jan. 19, finding a mosque leveled.
Elements of 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division responded to the location of the Al-Haja Mosque in the Saba al-Bor region after hearing an explosion and receiving a phoned-in tip from a resident stating the mosque was destroyed.
Upon arrival, the unit searched the remains and area surrounding the mosque, reporting no casualties. No Iraqi security forces were on site for the initial search.
The cause of the explosion is currently unknown. This incident is under investigation.
Sounds like a positive development.
..until it's the Dome of the Rock, don't wake me...
Where's Capt. Jamil Hussein?
Don't tell me...it was one of the holiest mosques in all of Iraq, right?
You should do some homework on what all exists at the site of the Dome of the Rock.
I'm not sure that informed Jews or Christian would wish for what you asked.
No Iraqi security forces on site- guess they were still running in the opposite direction after lighting the charge. Of course this clears the way for the arab street to nurture anger against US forces for having done this.
I am beginning not to care about Iraq....Are Muslims worth our effort? I can't say yes.
I am not wishing for anything.
I am only saying that THAT would be real news.
And I am informed, thanks...
Well, having been to the Middle East more times then I could count since 1988 (Iran-Iraq War), I would say that for the majority of the Muslims it is worth our efforts. As for those few who wish murder/mayhem upon the rest.... May they join Saddam soon.
Keep it goin! 1 Less Mask!

All the Chips on the Table "W"
Well..the question is...can we build a wall around the ME and wait til they kill each other off? No one in and no one out...and when they are just about gone...we swoop in and take the oil..:)
Pres. Bush will expand it, I hope the next Pres. can come close to finishing it but I see this as a long process (If the right people get elected).
DIY Explosives Asembly Room Makeover
It's a requirement that the mosque be removed before the Temple can be rebuilt.
I believe God Himself will destroy the Dome of the Rock and remove all elements of Mohammad's faulty religion maybe by an earthquake. The way things are lining up I believe it will be sooner rather than later.
There is a certain justice to møøselimbs taking out their own trash, either by themselves, or with Him guiding their hand...
