As an armored column from the U.S. Army’s 3rd Infantry Division charged toward Baghdad, Iraqi forces countered with dump trucks, pickup trucks and a “suicide bus” of soldiers with rifles blazing, CNN correspondent Walter Rodgers reported Friday.
“Four hundred Iraqis made a very bad choice,” Rodgers quoted an officer of the 3rd Squadron, 7th Cavalry, as saying. Rodgers is embedded with the cavalry.
Many appear to have the will to fight, but not the means. Kamikaze is one thing, but charging a tank with a bus load of guys with AK-47s? What’s the best-case scenario for that? Well, bring ’em on. Easier by the bus load, I guess. Everyone taken out now is one less to deal with later. Poor bastards.
And is it me, or is the 7th Cavalry Regiment of the 3rd ID kicking some serious ass over the past two weeks?
