U.S. Officials Vow To Protect Iraqi Infrastructure

ASH SHARQAT, IRAQ - AUGUST 18: A giant black cloud of burning oil rises behind U.S. Army 101st Airborne First Brigade Combat Team 426th Infantry Private First Class Michael Sheret, from Buffalo, New York, as his unit supervises efforts to extinguish a section of the ruptured Iraqi oil pipeline that has been burning for several days August 18, 2003 in the northern town of Ash Sharqat, Iraq. U.S. and Iraqi officials believe the thousand kilometer Iraqi pipeline, which carries valuable oil exports northward to Turkey, has become the target of an orchestrated campaign to destroy or disrupt infrastructure targets country wide. As a result, the U.S. lead coalition government vowed today to double the number of Iraqi protective personnel assigned to guard the pipeline and other oil installations throughout Iraq.
