[Media Source*] (Hat Tip: Iraq The Model)
The Iraqi government is to deploy 40,000 troops around Baghdad to stop the daily insurgent attacks on the capital that have claimed dozens of lives in the past month...
The Iraqi force will be backed by 10,000 US troops and the operation is due to be extended to other cities once results from the pilot scheme have been analysed, said the Iraqi defence ministry.
This information comes out as rumors seem to be spreading that al-Zarqawi may have been wounded and that there seems to be a power struggle for succession to his "throne." As the search for Zarqawi (and Bin Laden) continue, it looks like the newly formed Iraqi government is for the first time going on the offensive instead of idle sitting by taking abuse from the terrorists via car bombs.
"These operations will aim to turn the government's role from defensive to offensive," Iraqi Interior Minister Bayan Jabor said at a news conference announcing the operation...
"We shall not leave any place for terrorists or those who shelter them and incite terrorism in Iraq," [Defense Minister Sadoun al-]Dulaimi said. "We will stand against all those who try to shed Iraqi blood ... We will implement the law with everything we've got."
The Iraqi's plan on forming a blockade around Baghdad, and dividing the city into sections having each unit responsible for a separate section. With more good news coming out of Iraq it won't be long until this newly formed republic becomes a thriving nation in a region long known for terror.
