Guerilla attacks; 4th ID
Expect more such attacks on our troops moving north -- small scale engagements designed to harass, rather than confront our armored columns.
Also, as the US establishes its supply lines to support its frontline troops, expect those lines to get hit in similar fashion. RPGs have limited effect against M1 Abrams or M2 Bradleys, but Humvees and trucks are easy targets. I wouldn't be surprised if we suffered more casualties behind the frontlines than at the front.
They'll be needed to pacify the country in the occupation phase.
Update: Great news! Four ambushed soldiers not dead. Just wounded.Posted March 22, 2003 07:56 AM | Comments (16)
