CHIEF OF MOSUL POLICE KILLED BY CAR BOMB, HEAVY CLASHES REPORTED IN CITY-IRAQI POLICE SOURCES
A beautiful day in the neighborhood
ALARM - Iraq: nine police officers killed in confrontations in Mosul
BAGHDAD - Last nine police officers were killed Friday morning in Mosul, in the north of Iraq, explosions and exchanges of shootings in progress with insurrectionists, one learned near the police force from the city.
Bomby weather ping . . .
who are the perps, shi'ites?
Almost certainly Sunni in Mosul.
I just read that 3500 US troops had left Mosul for Baghdad.
Yep. We heard about that.
We're expecting bomby weather here today, too. About when the mosques let out. Mookie Sadr has a "million man march" planned for today.
I sure hope the coalition forces have some opening ceremonies planned for that as well.
We've already heard two nearby explosions in our neighborhood today.
or soon to be moved.
I thought Mosul was a sunni stronghold?
Don't know, they have all of the ethnic groups up there - Kurds, Sunni, Shiite etc. Turkey may use this as an excuse to invade, which won't be helpful.
That's correct, and so are Fallujah and Ramadi, ergo insurgent attacks in all three are pretty much exclusively perpetrated by Sunni Arabs.
There is approximately zero chance that Turkey may use this as an excuse to invade.
I think Baghdad is about to become the center of attention in Iraq.
And see, the thing is, we don't really like being the center of attention...
We're kind of shy like that. ;-)
Good morning Allegra !!
Is "Mookie" in the "pulpit" today, and will he be "addressing" his "fans" at his MMM ???
I hope all our troops are ready, and along with you, I hope they stay safe !!

We're not sure where that fat little slug is, but I sure hope some of the good guys with lots of weapons know.
He's probably hiding out in Najaf and directing his potential carnage from there, the lily-livered little coward.
