Operation Arrowhead Ripper

Is the name of the current operation our guys are undertaking in Iraq. They have essentially bottled up "Al Qaeda in Iraq" in their base of operations, Baqubah, and are really putting the squeeze on. This is turning out to be the biggest battle since major hostilities ended, and our guys are playing it a little differently, having learned from past engagements... essentially meaning that this offensive is REALLY bad news for the bad guys.
Not much about this on the news, but Michael Yon is actually there on the ground, letting us know what's going down. DEFINITELY recommended reading.
Thanks to Geek with a 45 for the reminder that we're still at war.

I loved that mini-gun audio and video...that's some serious kill power we could have used for base defense at DaNang.

Very cool. Slaughter them like rats across the tundra.
