friendly-fire incidents/awful surprise soon
Major events of 3 April
US-led forces continued their advance to the power seat of Saddam Hussein's
government and are "closing in on Baghdad", said US Defense Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld on 3 April. He warned, however, that there "likely will be
difficult days ahead" as the operation focuses on the Iraqi capital.
Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen Richard Myers added: "There is
still much work to be done, and there is no doubt that some of it is going
to be very, very difficult."
The Iraqi regime has now lost control of about 45% of the country, Gen Myers
said. Coalition forces also control 95% of the country's airspace, he said.
Coalition forces have seized key bridges over the Euphrates and Tigris
Rivers, which "eases the approach to Baghdad", Rumsfeld said.
Rumsfeld urged Iraqi soldiers to turn on Saddam Hussein, saying it is up to
them to "save themselves, turn on that condemned dictator and help the
forces of Iraq's liberation." He warned that "Iraq is running out of real
soldiers. Soon all that will be left are war criminals."
Air strikes targeted military barracks in the area of Saddam International
Airport while US Army AH-64 Apache helicopters attacked Republican Guard
armour and anti-aircraft missile launchers.
Coalition forces in northern Iraq include "a lot of" US special forces and
units of the UK military at times, in addition to the 173rd Airborne
Brigade, Rumsfeld confirmed. Coalition and Kurdish forces have "conducted
combined operations" on some suspected chemical weapon facilities.
US Central Command is investigating two potential friendly-fire incidents. A
US Army soldier was killed and several additional personnel were reported
injured or missing due to an incident involving a US Air Force F-15E Strike
Eagle ground-attack aircraft. In a second incident, a Patriot missile may
have been to blame for the downing of a US Navy F/A-18C Hornet while on a
mission over central Iraq.

Saddam is waiting for SOMETHING... God knows, what. There were a lot of
options, as mentioned, the dam, the bridges, even the hidden airplanes they
should have tucked away, the antiaircraft missiles, but none of that was
Very unsettling. The occupants will probably get an awful surprise soon.

seizure of the International airport near Baghdad?
