MS-NBC reports that the Coalition continues to make progress with gathering cooperation from Iraqi citizens, who are tiring of the insurrection:
For six months, the Arab foreigners lived quietly in a Baghdad neighborhood with their wives and children, until neighbors tipped off U.S. forces they could be insurgents. On Monday morning, American soldiers came to the door of a brown-brick house and — speaking in Arabic over a loudspeaker — ordered those inside to surrender. When the raid was over, three men were dead, a Syrian and two Yemenis. Two of the men were shot trying to escape; the other blew himself up in the front yard. Inside the house, U.S. troops found a weapons cache.
The U.S. military had no comment on the incident. But witnesses and Iraqi police described how Iraqi civilians, increasingly frustrated with guerrilla violence, are cooperating with the U.S.-led coalition to catch suspected rebels.
Other Iraqi neighbors applauded the move.
Read the whole article. Iraqis are beginning to realize what a future without the Ba'athists might bring and they are anxious to get on with it. To whatever extent that foreign jihadis were tolerated before, they certainly are becoming more unwelcome with every Iraqi civilian death from insurgent bombing.Sphere It View blog reactions
