Thanks, Mom. I always knew I could count on Mother for lending some organization to our lives!

I have fantasies of an "Executive Orders" scenario for Bush's brief at 10:15. ***Clancy Reference***

I think I may have heard the first explosion live on the the same web cam. It was turned up loud, and my daughter came running in to see what the racket was. I told she was hearing the sound of that a lot of Iraqis have been waiting for. Here's to a FREE IRAQ!!!!!

No, apparently what we saw was preliminary leadership strikes.

We may actually be doing a daylight attack. Sheesh!

Things are underway, folks.

Be Seeing You,

Somebody please provide the link to the MSNBC webcam.

Assuming those drivers are regular Iraqis and not bad guys, I feel sorry for them. Go home, people! Get yourself safe.

We sent 100 cord rosaries to Kuwait in the last couple of months along with 100 holy cards with St.Michael and the prayer on the back.
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, cast into hell satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world, seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Got a nice card back from a Kuwait chaplain.

Ok, I think CBS has the correct story: we were going after a "target of opportunity" (ie. a meeting of Iraqi leadership). It would be nice if we happened to nail some of the bad guys. I also imagine that we have our own "eyes" on the ground tracking Saddam.

May the war be decicive, just, and swift, with minimal casualties for our troops, iraqi civilians, and may we very shortly be discussing the rebuilding effort under a free Iraq, in Jesus' name, I pray.

Initial shots were probably to check out anti-aircraft positions and take them out, I would bet the e-bomb is next.
