Torture of the people in Iraq

Yahoo! News Message Boards Top Stories

About Iraq and the torture of the people there before the war....

Human rights groups estimate that at least 290,000 Iraqis have disappeared since Saddam took power 34 years ago. Hussain was just a schoolgirl in Baghdad when the reality of life under Saddam hit home. She recalls riding on a school bus at age 13 and seeing a crowd gathered in the center of the capital, around bodies of men hanging from poles. "I remember the blue faces, the long necks," she said.

Al-Suwaij knows firsthand how even young girls were imprisoned for what seem to be trivial offenses. Al-Suwaij says she had a 16-year-old cousin who was beaten and tortured with electrical shocks for having written something against the government in her school notebook.

International Towing & Recovery Museum & Hall of Fame

Here is an interesting one!! The tow truck museum in Chattanooga, Tennessee! Chattanooga was chosen as the museum's home because the industry's first wrecker was fabricated one block away from the museum at the Ernest Holmes Company. This is pretty close to where Susie grew up in Trenton, Georgia.

World's Longest Yard Sale/127 Garage Sale  and Antique Alley Yard Sale 888-805-4740

World's Longest Yard Sale
Date: August 2-10, 2003

You still have time to plan your trip!!

Travel more than 450-miles of scenic beauty and see tons of yard sales. Get started on your journey by traveling the 93- mile Lookout Mountain Parkway route from Gadsden, Alabama to Chattanooga, Tennessee for the most "scenic rural America" in the United States. With more than 1,000 yard sale vendors you will find everything from antiques, collectibles, furniture, dishwares, fresh garden produce, homemade jams and jellies, food vendors, live entertainment and so much more. Continue with the yard sale, following the U.S. 127 Corridor from Chattanooga, TN to Covington, KY for more than 350 miles of yard sale bargains. When combined, the Lookout Mountain Parkway and the 127 Corridor have had as many as 5,000 vendors lined along the 450-mile scenic yard sale route in past years and the year 2003 promises to be even bigger.

Way to go, San Diego!

San Diego Trolley, Inc., an operator of the Metropolitan Transit System, scored its own touchdown on Super Bowl Sunday with near perfect transit service to handle the huge increase in volume. "Compared to five years ago, this thing was like magic today," said Senior Transportation Consultant Paul Ridgeway.

The Metropolitan Transit System reports that 23,000 fans were carried to the big game by trolley, representing one-third of the total game attendance. The postgame operation went flawlessly according to San Diego Trolley, Inc., which cleared out the stadium in just two hours after the end of the game.
