In The Thick of It.
As Baghdad seemingly blows apart, I can't imagine a better place to be so that our listeners can get a first hand view of the action. In the last two days alone, there have been more than 200 attacks in this country. Worse, they have resulted in the deaths of at least one U.S. Marine, two Iraqi soldiers, the discovery of more than 50 bodies, the kidnapping of 50 Iraqi security personnel, the assassination of a senior Iraqi general and multiple attacks on Shiite and Sunni mosques.
While this is certainly a national and international story. However, because our troops our here, and MN Guard members will soon be here, it is a local story.
That is why I am here!
