Missiles or anti-aircraft guns?

They could be anti-air artillery; however, I'm still inclined to believe they're missiles.

Other examples of surface to air sites in Iraq have been emptied of their weaponry. This is the only one I've come across that is still occupied.

The Egyptian site is much better groomed. Surrounded by shrubbery and a fence. This site in Iraq looks haphazzard with lots of equipment scattered throughout the countryside in berms.

After re-examining the image, I agree with you that these are guns. You can see each has a wide base extending beyond the berms.

I'm still waiting on Google to finish their promised Google Earth for the Mac. Until then, I'll have to rely on the aid of folks like you. Thanks for the update.
