Breaking News: Offensive against Samarra Begins

Reported by Marie Therese - March 16, 2006

More than 1500 American ("Coalition") and Iraqi forces are engaged in Operation Swarmer, an all-out air assault on Samarra, an area north of Baghdad. 200+ tactical vehicles and 50+ aircraft are involved. According to CNN, more than one town has been targeted.


It seems that the military geniuses in the administration believe that demolishing one or more towns, killing and wounding even more Iraqi civilians, is the best way to deal with sectarian strife. Anyone remember Fallujah? One wonders if the hospitals were targeted first? One wonders how many dead bodies are going to be secretly buried in football fields this time?

There are no embedded reporters, only old footage taken weeks ago or photos carefully doled out by the Department of Defense.

Several FOX Military Analysts have emphatically stated that you can't bomb your way out of an insurgency.
