In other news in Iraq...

The U.S. is about to launch the first door-to-door sweep of the entirety of Sadr City, and plans keeping a permanent presence there... at least until Maliki makes them stop when his government teeters on the brink of collapse. Iraqi civilians in the area are upset and offended by the increased U.S. presence, while U.S. soldiers are antsy, questioning the value of their missions, and unable to engage the enemy. Well, looks like they might get their chance... or at least get a better chance of being shot at.

Oh joy. Expect a firey couple of weeks.
