For all the talk about Baghdad falling apart, we continue to hear few major attackes or mussies getting through to blow up some fruit stand with a suicide car or goon strapped with explosives. All these raids we are doing and capturing weapons and explosives seem to be keeping the sensational attackes to a real minimum. Obviously fewer goons are on the streets. They must be keeping them in dog kennels once captured.
