Aswat Aliraq: "Diala, May3, (VOI) - Clad in black, brandishing weapons and raising anti-government slogans, 300 al-Qaeda network operatives on Saturday held a parade in Diala, a security source said.
“Al-Qaeda network held a military parade inside al-Asiwa village of al-Saadiya district, 155 km north-east of Baaquba,” a security source from Diala province, who requested anonymity, told Aswat al-Iraq - Voices of Iraq - (VOI).
The source pointed out “300 al-Qaeda fighters bearing light and medium weapons drove with 50 pick-up vehicles in the village street.”
He added “the fighters were clad in black and raised billbords calling to punish policemen, army servicemen, and government public servicemen.”
Earlier, the volatile province of Diala saw similiar parades in al-Gatoon neighbourhood in Baaquba and al-Asri neighbourhood in al-Muqdadia town over the past 4 years, but the militants’ sway was diminshing after U.S.-backed Iraqi troops launched attacks to clamp down on the violence pervading the mixed ethnicities province.
Baaquba, the capital city of Diala, lies 57 km north-east of Baghdad."

You took it, grudgingly, as a replacement for that beat-up old Camry that only lasted two months, but the salesman assured you it was a winner. No wonder you're driving onto the lot right now. Before you can even complain, the same salesman's there. He's firm. It's not his fault. You must have done something. Nonetheless, he's ready to offer you a great deal. For an extra 2,000 bucks, you can have the rusted-out Honda Prelude right behind him, the one that, as a matter of fact, has just burst into flames -- and, he assures you, it's a dandy. It may not look so great today, what with the smoking hood and all, but it's a vehicle for the ages.
Would you buy a used car from this man? (Hint…

As Easter was
celebrated in the US and UK with, for believers, the
message of hope, Fallujah, the region and much of
the country is again under siege, not this time by
US mass murderers, but by the US proxy government’s
militias armed with US delivered weapons. In 2003, a
month into the invasion, Easter Day fell on the same
day as this year, 20th April, as Iraqis of all
denominations and none, died were incarcerated,
tortured, found with their heads drilled, or no
heads, thrown on garbage piles. Easter Day
