But we’ll have to wait and see if it will last.

Civilian Deaths in Iraq Drop Overnight

The number of Iraqi civilians killed in Baghdad’s sectarian violence fell drastically overnight, an Iraqi military official said Friday, crediting the joint U.S.-Iraqi security operation that began in force just days ago.

I wish someone would explain to me why they didn’t do this a long time ago? It could have saved many lives! War is not something to be fought in D.C., or in a “politically correct” manner. War is ugly, people will die, but it’s the end result that is much more important. Will this give freedom to the oppressed? Will a few thousand lives sacrificed save millions?

“They’re watching us carefully. There’s an air of suspense throughout the city. We believe, there’s no question about it, that many of these extremists are laying low and watching to see what it is we do and how we do it. How long that will last, we don’t know,” he said.

They’re probably waiting till the Dems in Congress pull their cut and run act, then start the slaughter all over again. I just hope they grow some cajones before that happens, even Nancy.

    Iraqi Security forces number better than 300,000.

    That is more than 2x US troops.

    In the current security operations – Despite the Presidents innumerable accounts of this being an Iraqi Govn. lead initiative – fewer that 10% of the lead foreces on these sweeps are Iraqi’s.

    Several US troops report that they are holding the hands of Iraqi police, who are in bed with the death squads and militias, and are as much part of the problem than being a solution.
