AubreyJ has posted Iraqi and Coalition Forces Kill, Capture Terrorists
Coalition and Iraqi forces killed 17 terrorists, detained about 90 suspected insurgents, and found several weapons caches in operations throughout Iraq in the past three days, military officials reported.
Coalition forces killed five terrorists, destroyed a bomb-making factory and detained three suspected terrorists during an operation today near Taji.
Elsewhere, Amiriyah police and Marines from Regimental Combat Team 6 engaged armed groups of al Qaeda for more than five hours today, killing eight insurgents and wounding five, south of Fallujah, near the town of Amiriyah.
Enemy fire continued sporadically throughout midday, when supporting fixed-wing aircraft engaged about 20 insurgents with guided munitions and strafing fire. Six insurgents were killed and their vehicles were destroyed as a result. The five wounded policemen were transported to a local hospital and treated.
During a raid near Balad, coalition forces detained 10 suspected terrorists and found a large amount of weapons in two targeted buildings.
West of Taji, coalition forces captured three suspects with alleged ties to car bomb operations and foreign fighter facilitation.
AND THE LIST GOES ON!!!
Seems to me that the politicos on the left should be cheering at this news instead of threatening to stop funding, demanding the U.N. be given the plow handles, demeaning our troops and giving aid and comfort to the enemy.
May the Living God watch over the coalition forces and befuddle the minds of our enemies.
