What happened in Mdaien?

"Mdaien or Salman Bak is one of the most historic beautiful places South of Baghdad. Shiites and Sunnis lived there for so long time with out problems.

Two days ago groups of terrorists included Baathists from the old regime, Wahabis, and criminals from Iraq and Arab countries took more than 100 Shiites hostages including women and children. They tried to ignite a civil war and to spread into other areas. They then can execute large scale attacks and inflame the situation.

The only thing which foiled their plan was the stand of the Iraqi citizens in Mdaien with the Iraqi forces entered the city. The people provided important information about the terrorists who killed their hostages and escaped into the other side of the river.
At least 50 bodies were recovered later a little bit south in the river Tigris."
Boy! this story just keeps changing, just when you thought you had a handle on it, it takes another turn. I don't know where Sam gets his info, but he's usually right about these things. I do know one thing for sure, this is only the first salvo in the upcoming campaign. This enemy is neither down or out.
Keep you Head up, and you Ass down.
