Lead: If you are coming to Ashraf in the future, there are a few thing you need to know. The PMOI are designated as terrorist for a reason.I have eatten diner with them, drank some tea (is good) but the bottom line they are terrorist. They give you propaganda to read and it is just crazy. Some might be true. The PMOI are not innocent. The Defectors at the tiff have went back home to Iran and love it, it has been all over the news. The MEK surrendered. We are in control
In a forum with the address above, different people, most of whom US soldiers and their families, have expressed their comments on Camp Ashraf.
A US Solder at Ashraf wrote:
“If you are coming to Ashraf in the future, there are a few thing you need to know. The PMOI are designated as terrorist for a reason. The last crime that they committed that the FBI can pin on them is a LTC Hawkins in the early 70's. The PMOI or MEK will try and control situations here, bottom line soldiers are the boss. I have eatten diner with them, drank some tea (is good) but the bottom line they are terrorist. They give you propaganda to read and it is just crazy. Some might be true. It is a long story but the MEK lost and the regime in power in Iraq won. The MEK terrorised the regime and the regime faught back by killing people. The PMOI are not innocent. The Defectors at the tiff have went back home to Iran and love it, it has been all over the news. The MEK surrendered. We are in control. (CAV Scout at Ashraf)
Another person says:
“My fiance just arrived at this camp. I haven't talked to him yet but his buddy has passed on word to his wife saying thst there is only 6 phones for 700 troops and this place isn't a nice camp at all. Can anyone else give me more info about this place.”

“I believe that the government should let the Iranians at Ashraf defend themselves. Why are our US soldiers guarding terrorist and not with their loved ones back home? Bn to ashraf and it is no vaction. The MEK doesn't even want us there really. Take care troops and return home.”

THEY ARE TERRORISTS! Look that this site http://www.payvand.com/news/04/nov/1015.html it says there at the bottom, "The terrorist group itself, he added, 'has admitted to killing several thousand people since the 1979 revolution in Iran'." People who are innocent and not terrorist don't just kill several thousands of people.

A supporter of PMOI has answered to this as follows:
“You’re a terrorist. you're a regimi va mozdoor ke in harf ro mizani, harfet dashe nemiarze”
And the ex Ashraf MP has answered:
Yeah, I'm the terrorist, when I spent months babysitting for an organization that tortured about a hundred Americans in '79, Iranians, Iraqis, and people of their own organization. And when I say babysat, I mean served them with a silver spoon because they whine more than any group of people I have ever met in my entire life. They are the most ungreatful people I have ever had to guard (with the exception of about 2 or 3 of them). We didn't treat them bad at all, I even helped keep watch over them when we had to take them to other camps for medical/dental needs, and the thanks we got for their well-being was more complaining. The few that were helpful to us and greatful for our cause were great, but the majority of them acted like little kids.
