RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

An interesting slideshow - straight from Iraq - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam. Note: The RF Cafe Forums were reconstituted in April 2021!

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

-- Anecdotes, Gripes & Humor

A little sampling of what was discovered in Fallujah - including records of foreign fighters and GPS with waypoints originating in western Syria. Note that most of this stuff was found in mosques.

Kinda puts the kabosh on the idea that these are just Iraq nationals fighting to keep the bad armies out of their land.

Interesting ain't it?

In many of the slides, "international law" has been quoted so frequently that one should ask since when does Uncle Sam start respecting the so-called international law that it is advocating now, when UN didnt even sanction its attack, and occupation of Iraq by the occupational forces?

Since when did sodomising the innocent Iraqis become part of the international Law?

Since when does piling naked Iraqi civilans and making pyramids out of them while sanctioned whole-hearrtedly by the White House and the Pentagon become the international Law?

While Uncle Sam is trampling the sacred Iraqi soil inn search for the WMDs, it has problems with other nations including Syria and Iran to stop meddling in the internal affairs of Iraq (which in any case they are not!!!). But even if they are, since when Iraqi affairs become internal affairs of US? or the UK?

Just some thoughts. We should better start looking into our own souls and actions.

Are those acts of atrocities you are referring to the ones committed by the Saddam regime that went unpunished for 30 years (along with chopping off heads and arms, throwing bodies into shredders, mass execution of women and children, use of rape room, buringin out eyeballs, cutting out tongues, etc.), or the ones committed by the U.S. forces where the perpetrators have been heavily punished virtually instantly for?

After reading so many posts on this forum I now realize that the USA was completely wrong about Iraq. Apparently I was misled. The people of Iraq and neighboring countries were better off when saddam was the compassionate leader. Saddam is alive and healthy. Let's send him back right now and put him back in power. Then we wait a few years and let them vote whether or not to keep him.

Guest!!!
and who was the one supporting and shaking hands with Saddam the terrible at the time when he was doing all these atrocities on Iranians and Kurds... yes... our own Donald Rumsfeld... but since he was a friend of the west at that time so everybody accepted this as part of the game to safeguard western vested interests.

and who is the one being punished instantly now.. those who probably just went by the rules of engagement as per Pentagon and the White House and probably just carried out the orders. Any one, in the seat of power punished!!!

Send him back, I am sure US can do it with impunity the only problem for it is now that this monster has been created by Uncle Sam himself, so probably he can't now. It will be too obvious a blunder especially when US wants middle east to be democratic.

The problem is people of Iraq hate the occupation forces much more than they did Saddam that is why nobody saw such a ruthless revolt against him in his many years of rule that they are seeing now... but probably the US-UK alliance of the killing just cannot accept this reality on ground.

May God show you the right path!!!
