Thunderous booms were heard across Baghdad as US and Iraqi forces launched a major operation in a Sunni insurgent-infested neighborhood on Thursday, a spokesman said.
Iraqi Army Brig. Qassim Moussawi, spokesman for the Iraqi commander of the Baghdad security plan, said a joint US-Iraqi force had moved into the southern neighborhood of Dora.
The statement came a day after thousands of US troops swept house-to-house through mostly Shiite areas near a militia stronghold in northeastern Baghdad in the opening phase of the long-awaited Baghdad security crackdown.

I wish we had a commander in Iraq and a SoD two years ago that instead of thinking we could slide out of Iraq after training X number of Iraqi troops instead wanted to kick ass and win.

Mookie was wise to bug out.
Send the B-52's and carpet bomb them.
When I was a young lad in the USAF, I worked on the defensive testing for the B-1b at Edwards.
I can tell you, when it flys over your head at .95 mach at 500 ft off the ground, its really impressive. You don't hear it till its right on top of you.
Lot of soiled sheets in the Sunni neighborhoods today.
Oh yea, We were on the dry lake bed with our truck full of gear and I was on the roof looking for the plane. I knew it was coming but I had to locate it. It came out of no where and roared (I mean ROARED) over my head. I thought it would hit me it looke dthat low. I almost soiled my BDUs.
I can only imagine what Al Sadr must be thinking.
Looky here . . .
Elsewhere, it's being reported that blind people are having the same problem with the Toyota Prius.
Dear God, be with each and every soldier defending this nation and other nations looking for freedom. Give each, supernatural insight and discernment. Give them life saving miracles. Encourage and strengthen them in hard times. Father, we look up to heaven and ask You to hear us; You fight this war; You give us victory. We humbly ask for favor, for victory, Amen

Everytime I see a Prius, I think it looks like a toy car.

And there was a lot of air action yeaterday, bombing IED planters, in Baghdad, which was considered too rough in the old Rules of Engagement. There were at least 3 such attacks yesterday.

We had a big old cement bunker up on "Rocket Ridge" which overlooks the flightline and the dry lake bed. They used to test roickets engines up there.
When the planes would break mach 1, the walls of the bunker would visably flex. The first dozen times that it happened, it scared the bejezzes out of me. After that, I never even noticed it.
