News inside Iraq

Today I was checking out the new look of CENTCOM, and it is very nice. They even have a dictionary for all those alphabet terms! That's for us lay people. :)

While I was over there, I read four articles that I thought might interest you. First there was this one: Suspected terrorists hit in air strike near Arab Jabour. This is a good one, because they killed some terrorists during that air strike. Intel was that these a--holes were responsible for many of the VBIED's and sniper attacks against the civillians in Iraq. They also took some weapons off the street.

Next there was this one: Iraqi, Coalition Forces Battle Terrorists After Investigating IED Blast. This is just one of those slow but sure steps we are taking to build a stand alone Army for the Iraqis. Along side of our Coalition Forces, the Iraqi Army did not run away. Great job, all of you.

Thirdly, there is a humanitarian effort: Two Shammar Tribe villages enjoy civil affairs' school renovations. This is a pretty remarkable story. The NGO's actually hire the Iraqis from the town itself. This may help in the prospect that most people do not have a desire to destroy that for which they have built.

Lastly, the Iraqi Forces did this one all on their own: Iraqi Army, Cavalry take fight to the enemy...again. (I know that Cavalry should be spelled Calvary but since the article used that spelling, I gave them the benefit of doubt. Maybe that is the way it is translated in Arabic.)

This article is very remarkable. The Iraqi Troops handled this one on their own. You are going to read it. :)

Sources: CENTCOM 1, 2, 3 and 4. Since you already have those links above, I am going to also give you the links you may use in case you run into difficulty with those links: 1, 2, 3 and 4.
