Outstanding thread,...

If any freepers have information regarding Iraqi infrastructure, post it as well.

Believe it or not, maps and drawings of recent construction in Iraq might not be available to military or even the CIA. They have more access to our infrastructure by the Internet than vica versa. Please post away.

Thanks for the link to University of Texas map website.

...and this from an old Semi-Aggie showing his age. Which proves the old adage that Aggies and Teasips are only on the same side when the US is at war or the Cotton Bowl is being played.

Play on the Old Corps Saying: "The only time the Marines and the Navy are on the same side is when the US is at war or Annapolis plays West Point."

Looks like most of the oil is in the north or south, in or close to the no-fly zones.

Thanks for the kind words, Cvengr. Your comments on our intelligence, I am sad to say, is all too true.

Being a child of the 1950s, I do sometimes long for the simpler days when heros stood for "Truth, Justice and the American Way."

Where are the Blackhawks when we really need them?

The map concealed in...

Revelation 9

7 The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces. 8 Their hair was like women's hair, and their teeth were like lions' teeth. 9 They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. 10 They had tails and stings like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months. 11 They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon.


Crowns of Gold Sinai
Faces Jordan
Hair Lebanon
Teeth Jordan
Breastplates Iraq
Wings (the ironically labelled 'no fly zones' of Iraq
Sting / Tails Somalia / UAE

Horses prepared for battle / Turkey is the rider (See: Psalm 10:15) Arm/Istanbul

And as for the Locusts...

Re: The map of the beast (sphinx) prostrating toward Mecca...

I could be mistaken, but I always thought the Sphinx was on the East bank of the Nile and faced West towards the True Promise Land, Texas.

How could I be wrong?

The heck with maps, how about a nice "before" image of Baghdad? (I believe Saddam's Presidential palace is at the very bottom looking out over the Tigris River):

Sorry for the size but I wanted to make sure the images were clear enough... Hey look! I think that's him on the veranda!

H-3 Airfield
from: http://www.globalsecurity.org/


H3 under arrow

In response to recent Iraqi hostile acts against Coalition aircraft monitoring the Southern No-Fly Zone, Operation SOUTHERN WATCH Coalition aircraft used precision-guided weapons today to strike an air defense command and control facility at a military airfield 240 miles west and slightly south of Baghdad, at approximately 2:30 a.m. EDT on 05 September 2002. Aircraft dropped precision-guided bombs on the H3 airfield. The strikes were carried out by nine American F-15 Strike Eagles and three RAF Tornado GR4 ground attack aircraft flying from Kuwait. The attack on the air defence command and control facility was the first time that a target in western Iraq had been attacked during the patrols of the southern no-fly zone. According to press reports, about 100 US and British aircraft took part in the attack, making it the biggest single operation over the country in four years.

The H-3 Southwest airfield is one of three dispersal airfields in the H-3 base cluster located 435 kilometers from Bagdad in western Iraq. The main H3 airfield was originally built to support the H-3 oil pumping station. H-3 Main is supported by two dispersal airfields, H-3 Southwest, and H-3 Northwest, and a Highway strip, 42 kilometers to the west. H-3 Southwest is served by a single 9,700 foot runway and has a parrallel taxiway that could be used as an alternate runway. There are at least 6 hardened aircraft shelters, and 6 revetments.

Chemical weapons were stored at the H-3 airfield (main) during Desert Storm according to declassified U.S. intelligence reports which describe Iraqi efforts to disperse chemical weapons by truck to other locations. The S-shaped bunker located at H-3 airfield (main) and the four at the H-3 ammunition storage facilty were damaged or destroyed during Desert Storm. Of the 22 S-shaped bunkers located across Iraq, 10 had been destroyed as of 8 February 1991. It is not known whether the rest were subsequently destroyed.

NIMA CIB imagery as well as Ikonos browse imagery taken as of November 2000, reveal no apparent change to the airfield since 1995.
