al Qaeda Taking A Pounding In Iraq

Published by at 1:05 pm under All General Discussions,Iraq

The US is on the offensive in Iraq, before even half the troop surge is in place:

The United States military said today that an airstrike north of Baghdad killed several Al Qaeda insurgents who were using heavy artillery machine guns to fire at American helicopters.

The strike occurred Friday west of Taji, where several American helicopters have been shot down in recent weeks, and the American assault destroyed at least two pick-up trucks with mounted machine guns, said Lt. Col. Christopher R. Garver, a military spokesman in Baghdad.

Small but consistent progress every day will turn the tide in Iraq. Leaving the insurgents no quarter will pay dividends. Contrary to liberal mythology, there is not an endless supply if cannon fodder.
