its moqtada al sadr ... now we know werehe is.


The British would not waste their time with man eating badgers. After all, they have direct access to the man eating rabbits from Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail.

Tom Scudder

I defy anyone to read the opening line of the BBC report:


"British forces have denied rumours that they released a plague of ferocious badgers into the Iraqi city of Basra."

and NOT conjure up a Monty Python skit in your head.

"Her Majesty's Government strenuously denies releasing any badgers, or other burrowing mammals in the city of Basra, and furthermore deplores any use of such creatures or of other omnivores in the course of such actions. We furthermore deny the release of any marmosets, voles, wildebeests, otters, or cape buffalo into any areas of Iraq under British jurisdiction."


Meanwhile, doesn't this remind you of Bush's Iraq policy? Monty Python: official play by play announcers of the War On Terror.


Welcome to Washington. Looks like you'll do well in this town. By the way, are badgers related to aardvarks?


Before going on who to blame for this.
simple qustion this animal was not in Basra and surly was not in Iraq!! befor 2003, so from where then it came?

Iran, Saudis Or Kuwait? sure this animal not from this habitats.

If you go and read more about this animal and his original habitats is from East South Asia Islands where rainy forests, so how it reach Basra? after 2003 invasion question waiting answers one day.


It's true! It's true!

Badgers in Basra!



Badgers? We don't need no stinking Badgers!


how did u get so big not tryin 2 be rude just wondering


Honey badgers live all over Africa and the Middle East. Keith does not seem to know what he is talking about. The badgers on the outskirts of Basra apparently recently moved there due to flooding in the nearby forest.
