Fao Peninsula? The maps I've seen on TV have it Faw Peninsula. -- Zoe
Google search shows 3410 for "Faw Peninsula" and 671 for "Fao Peninsula". I'll change it to "Faw or Fao". --Infrogmation 02:42 Mar 23, 2003 (UTC)
Looking more, I'm now suspecting that the Faw is to the east of Umm Qasr; Fao and Faw may be seperate peninsulas. Anyone have a particularly detailed good map of that area? -- Infrogmation 02:45 Mar 23, 2003 (UTC)
I've been trying to find one, but no luck so far. -- Zoe
Some wikifing, context
Hi folks: thought I'd do some organization, importing stuff from fr:wiki and de:wiki to fill thi out a bit. Will try not to step on any toes, but it may be a mess for a couple of hours. T L Miles 16:34, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
Al-Faw/Umm Qasr comments
Technically, it is Al-Faw. Fao is another transliteration, but the accepted Board on Geographic Names (used by the US and UK governments) would render it as Al-Faw. There is a city of Al-Faw as well as the peninsula.
Umm Qasr is a port city located to the east of the Al-Faw peninsula on a body of water called the Khawr 'Abdullah.
The map in the article incorrectly shows the location of Umm Qasr far south into Kuwait, closer to Kuwait City. (posted by Rick Francona) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 20:26, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
Tactical details of military operations around Camp Bucca should not be included the article about the city of Umm Qasr. It is sufficient to mention that the camp is in the vicinity. I will move the information to the article on Camp Bucca, and let folks there worry about the clean up. Menaus (talk) 03:19, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
