The Iraqi ambassador to Russia believes that the Americans took the uprising in Basra as a demonstration of support to the Iraqi Army.
Abbas Khalaf said at a press conference in Moscow that the Iraqis were taking up arms to fight the invaders.
The Ambassador said that an Iraqi girl used an anti-tank gun to set on fire three armoured personnel carriers of the US marines near Kerbela.
"We agree with Washington and London that there are Saddam Hussein's doubles in Iraq. They are every Iraqi man," Abbas Khalaf said.
Iraq has stood up against American and British invaders, the diplomat said adding that this indicated that the USA and Britain were fighting against the Iraqi people rather than Saddam Hussein.
