More Iraqi Resistance Groups Emerge Warning Foreign Troops To Stay Out
Jul 15, 2003

Another two previously unheard Iraqi resistance groups have emerged, warning countries not to send troops to Iraq as anti-American sentiment grows inside the country.
Al-Jazeera television has aired a statement from a group calling themselves the "Iraqi National Islamic Resistance: 1920 Revolution Brigades", a name that references Iraq's long history of fighting colonial rule. The statement warned against further foreign intervention and read ﾒIt is our attacks against the American dogs that have forced them to ask for help in resisting usﾓ the statement read.
Another new group, the Iraq Liberation Army, in a statement aired on Al-Arabiya television said "We strongly reject and will resist with weapons any military intervention under the umbrella of the United Nations, the Security Council, NATO, or Islamic and Arab countries".
Troops from Spain, Poland, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, the Baltic states and possibly from the Philippines, Thailand, Mongolia and Fiji are likely to be part of the peacekeeping forces in Iraq. The so-called Muslim countries of Bangladesh and Pakistan have also been asked to take part but have not announced any decision yet. India has declined a request from Washington for help saying it would not send troops to Iraq without a UN mandate. Iraqﾕs occupation is extremely unpopular among Indiaﾕs population.
There is no shortage of groups with hatred for the Americans both inside and outside of Iraq. The large amount of civilian deaths, the obvious lack of interest in repairing the country from the destruction caused by the thousands of bombs the US dropped and the pilfering of Iraqs oil and antiquities has left a bad taste in the mouths of many worldwide.
