Hopefully it is over quickly, but it is good that we are closer to a resolution of this conflict.

Bless our troops.

just a little target practice for now - hopefully we hit a few and we'll save this thing getting into a full-blown conflict...
U.S. forces launched airstrikes against "targets of military importance." A U.S. military official said about three dozen cruise missiles were fired from a small number of ships at "leadership targets." http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story2&cid=514&ncid=514&e=1&u=/ap/20030320/ap_on_re_mi_ea/bush_iraq

I read that the U.S. Military has dropped thousands of leaflets detailing a peaceful surrender would not lead harm to any Iraqi soldiers. Reminds me of my grandfather telling me about how they dropped those same kind of papers on the Japanese in WWII. Hopefully this time they get read 'cause we all know what happened in Japan........:rolleyes:

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The first move of the U.S.-led attack against Iraq early Thursday was a "decapitation strike" using Tomahawk cruise missiles intended to kill Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, Pentagon sources told CNN.

Administration sources said the decision to strike came after a nearly four-hour meeting in the White House Oval Office in which CIA Director George Tenet and Pentagon officials told President Bush they could lose the "target of opportunity" if they didn't act quick; Bush then gave the green light.

Whether the mission succeeded is not known. But Pentagon officials said it is very difficult to successfully target a single person on the ground in such a bombing.

More than 40 satellite-guided Tomahawk cruise missiles were fired from U.S. warships in the Red Sea and Persian Gulf, military officials said.

F117 stealth fighters, which carry two 2,000-pound bombs apiece, also were involved in strikes apparently on a target other than Saddam.

Air raid sirens were heard in Baghdad at about 5:30 a.m. Thursday (9:30 p.m. Wednesday ET) about 90 minutes after the U.S. deadline for Saddam to step down or face a U.S.-led military attack.

There is word that 2 Iraqi regiments are planning to stand down.

I hope that they do... the less blood spilled to free Iraq, the better.
