Its the pre-game huddle. Pretty soon we'll be running with the ball the length of the field before the other team realizes what's happened.

Just saw this on MSNBC. This guy said somethings I don't want to repeat here and he shouldn't have said on the air.

Just saw this on MSNBC (the only network that is actually LIVE right now, reporting news first as usual these days).

Their reporter who is with the column says that they are loading up and moving North. LOTS of tanks, equip, men. He says that this is unlike the training/events of previous days. Not inching north slowly, but rather moving north quickly.

TV...MSNBC but no video. Chip Reid not allowed to give location or future location but he says while they have been inching toward the border over the past few days, this is a solid movement. He says they have been waiting for "an armada" of tanks heading toward the border.

There are reporters embedded with these troops. The usual sources (CNN, MSNBC, FOX) should be reporting this shortly if they haven't already.

He was very clear that he could nto say where they were nor where they were going. He just said that they were on the move. No shock there and no co-ordinates given.

No problem there.

Almost what post #9 said. This is a loose ships issue, MSNBC should be ashamed.

I doubt this is anything significant. It was reported from people in the field with the troops that they would begin moving north toward the border.

We are not actually going to cross over the border if the reports are right.

This is just lifting up tents and getting ready, nothing of note really.

It's good to give the Iraqis a heads-up, so they have time to surrender.

The prediction I made to my friends (that the war would have started and ended by the 23rd of March) looks better and better every day.

I should note that I meant reporters in the field said this would happen last night right after the speech.

How will troop movements be kept secret if the press leaks every movement? Remember, some of the press people are anti-America IMHO.

AFP just reported that a C-130 Hercules carrying the last group of inspectors is departing now.

I disagree... this is it. Saddam torched the oil wells, there's no going back now. If he didn't give up in the first 3 hours of his 48-hour ultimatum, why should we think he'd give up in the last 45?

CNN International is on live now, as usual at this hour - DirecTV channel 358. They have had a few reports live from Baghdad over the last couple of hours.

The 'feint' is designed to entice massive surrenders. Deal with the first wave of surrenders, then sit and let the RG sweat.

The posters, on that thread, say it's been on T.V. Personally, I have NO idea, as the set has been off here, for a while.

I disagree. Reports from last night were that they would move today, but only to get closer to the border.

Of course, I could be wrong and they may be going in. If such is the case, God be with our men.

Don't get CNN International here. Have to deal with CNN/FOX/MSNBC, but usually come to Freepers to find out the real deal. I may not agree with some of their talking heads (I am looking at you Bill Press, you miserable puke), but they have been absolutely top-shelf in the coverage of this over the past few days/weeks. Most informative, least politics, most extensive and by far the most timely reporting of any network. With the additions of Savage and Joe, they have become my network of choice for news, pure and simple.

Also, it doesn't hurt that they have been first out of the gate reporting virtually every big story over the past month, sometimes by 15-30 minutes.

I agree with your assessment. Get the surrendering over with so they don't clog up the works when the shooting begins.
