When I saw this.. I immediately thought of the ovens in Nazi Germany....


A grisly discovery by British military officials today of the remains of at least 200 people at an abandoned military compound on the outskirts of Zubayr, in southern Iraq, served to remind allied forces and the world of other aspects of Mr. Hussein's rule. It was not clear how old the remains were, or how they got there.


The British soldiers who investigated the Zubayr military base found 200 makeshift coffins bearing seriously decayed corpses.
Soldiers of the Royal Horse Artillery also found Arabic documents and photographs of men bearing head wounds and showing signs of torture or disfigurement
I wouldn't want to speculate, but the bones inside are obviously years old," Captain Jack Kemp told British reporters at the scene.


From this NY Times article. (http://www.nytimes.com/2003/04/06/international/worldspecial/06MILI.html?ex=1050210000?en=b80d12b39069677d&ei=5058&partner=IWON)

And this from AP....


British forces discovered boxes containing hundreds of human remains in a warehouse between Basra and Az Zubayr. Officials said the remains were not from this war.
They also found a catalogue of photographs of the dead, some indicating that the people had been shot.

They've also found a huge bunker stashed with dozens and dozens of weapon systems that were banned and possible chemical agents are there as well. What makes this even more sad is that is located under a school 100 miles south of Iraq.

I have no URL’s on this MSNBC is reporting this along with Fox News. I haven’t seen CNN report it, but that’s no surprise. Anything that makes the America’s case stronger for invading Iraq they seem to drag their feet to report it.

In time it will be very clear why we did what we did. If Saddam was not such a madman we could have worked with him to free his country a lil at a time, but this was never going to happen.

More about the military compound...


Outside the warehouse was a wall dotted with a spray of bullet holes, most at head height. Tiny concrete cells were discovered nearby.
Observer correspondent Paul Harris said portraits of Saddam stared down from some of the gray walls. In several, rusting metal hooks dangled from iron poles embedded in the ceiling.

I think this is what you are refferring to....


To the east, at Aziziya, marines responded to battlefield intelligence gleaned from an Iraqi special forces prisoner and rushed to a girls' school, where the prisoner said groups of Iraqi men had knocked down a wall to hide something in the courtyard and then laid fresh concrete over it in the course of three nights.
The intelligence report raised the immediate suspicion that chemical or biological weapons might have been hidden under the concrete, Marine officers said.

They now believe they were bodies from the Iran/Iraq war in the 80's.... not torture victims as they initially thought...

Still doesn't explain the cells with shackles hanging from the ceiling....
