Iraq: September 21, 2003


Islamic fundamentalists continue to attack shops selling music, videos and alcohol. Some of the shop owners, noting the large demand for their products, have hired armed guards.

Assassins tried to kill one of the 25 members of the Iraqi Governing Council. She was wounded.  Threats against the Iraqi Governing Council, and anyone else working with the coalition forces, are part of a Baath Party destabilization campaign. If the new Iraqi government forms, the Baath Party will find themselves in a civil war situation where the Sunni dominated Baath will be heavily outnumbered. Thus the Baath use of violence and threats to try and prevent the formation of a democratic new government.
