Scott Harrigan live right now. Throwing everything at them. AC-130, AH-64, Armed Kiowa, fighter bombers dropped two JDAM. M1s and M2's

You're kidding, right?

Oh shit, A house exploded across the street from Harrigan's slit trench and he is worried that they saw some Special Forces guys go in before it exploded.

Whatever they're doing, unless it involves indiscriminate MOABs - it's not enough.


God be with our men.

Before Harrigan went off air, he mentioned that they were worried about booby trapped buildings a la Grozny. Apparently some had already been found

I am all for carpet bombing with MOAB's. Do all the Sunni/Baath towns down to the dirt. Announce that it is in retaliation for the beheading. If the Shiites still want some, let them have it too. The only friends we seem to have in Iraq is the Kurds, and I'm sure they wouldn't object too loudly. We need to go animal on their ass for a change.

Strangely, I find myself agreeing with The_Macallan

That would be some pretty intense shit. A line of C-130 dropping MOABs.

they have signed off for a while. They are getting back in their bradley and moving. Booby trapped buildings have been encountered, fighters bombers may be called in so they are going to get under armor.

FNC was showing live video via Scott Harrigan and his cameraman of the 1st AD and unidentified SF units attacking a compound beleved to be the headquarters of the Al Sadr milita in Karbala. Bradlies have knocked holes in the walls and they witnessed Apache's, Kiowa's and a AC-130 attacking targets. Two buildings exploded, and there were reports that the SF guys going in were finding booby trapped buildings.

Most excellent.

Scott Harrigan reported before he signed off that the Shites keep coming in human waves and get slaughtered, but still keep coming.

He also said he knew of only one KIA in the 1st AD All WEEK

This is in line with the 1st Marine Division results from Fallujah who lost only 10 men in a entire month of fighting by 5 rifle battalions and their attachments.

When we are on the offensive, our casualties drop to nil

The most dangerous job in Iraq seems to be a supply truck driver. Or pulling escort duty for them. That is where most of our casualties come from.

So what's going on there now? Are they still showing the fighting? I'm at work and can't watch, keep updating. Thanks!

No there is no more video. They are waiting for Harrigan to report back and they will go to him when he makes contact again. But when he signed off he said they had to get back in their Bradley. For safety since there were perhaps bombers coming but also they might be moving position.

Apparently the solution for a booby trapped building is, rather than call in the EOD guys, is to drop a JDAM on it.

Well, IIRC, one accepted method of EOD is to detonate from a safe distance...

I think an air strike accomplishes that...

Al Sadr got too big for his boots, and I'd guess the establishment (Sistani, et al) washed their hands of him & told us we could have the punk...

Buddy you're a young man, hard man shoutin'
In the street gonna take on the world some day
Got blood on your face, big disgrace...

From an EOD perspective, most EXCELLENT!!!!

EOD teams prefer boobytrap clearing by MK84 or MOAB, its the ultimate in KISS!!!!
