Good Morning.

This is the Daily Thread of Operation Iraqi Freedom - LIVE THREAD.

It is designed for general conversation about the events of the day. In depth discussion of events should be left to individual threads - but links to the threads or other articles is highly encouraged. This allows us to stay abreast of the situation in general, while also providing a means of obtaining specific information.

Please have mercy on us dial up limited FReepers! Limit the big graphics, post links instead. A breif description of what the graphic is would help!

To all who helped this get started and keep it running, thank you!

Special thanks to Null and Void for keeping these threads running on the weekends, Mo1 for the screamer, the AdminMods for their tolerance, mhking for the video links, Ragtime Cowgirl for her Exclusive Live Transcription Service™, Fledermaus for his 15 minutes of fame, and, of course, Belly Girl...

Greg Kelly on Fox News called in to report the 3rd ID is heading into Baghdad again - this time to the center of the city. Light arms resistance and a few RPG's, but their tanks are rollin' on Baghdad ...

Fallen son

William Buesing III, father of U.S. Marine Lance Cpl. Brian Buesing, 20, holds an American flag given to him by a member of a Marine color guard as he grieves over his son's coffin during funeral services Saturday in Cedar Key, Fla. Buesing was one of nine Marines who died in a confrontation with Iraqi troops near Nasiriyah, Iraq, on March 23.

Iraqi children ask for food from U.S. Marines in the city of Nassiriya, April 6, 2003. U.S.

Or a possible ruse to see if they try and load chem shells (with drones observing from above), "knowing" that we would be vulnerable.

CNN retired major reported earlier he doesn't think there is enough coordinated command and control left to actually surrender in the traditional sense.

That overhead drone is probably providing recon for the tank advance in the city. The modern battlefield is amazing.

Situation Room Day 19 Quiz.....

How many days does Saddam have left on life support?

What was Uday thinking about when that missle hit him in the face?

What's Qusay doing right now in "paradise?"

But seriously, who do you all think is calling the shots right now military wise in Baghdad?

Anybody ever read Jean Paul Sarte's "No Exit?" That would be my hope for Saddam and sons.

U.S. Makes Second Raid Into Baghdad

BAGHDAD, Iraq — American forces rolled through the streets of Baghdad in armored vehicles on Sunday, as missiles screamed through the skies and the crackle of heavy machine gun fire grew more intense.
