    Well, I hope you don't mean drafted! With a little luck and a few well dropped bombs, this can be over quickly and with minimum life lost of both sides.

    Neither have I...

    But this is the media camera; I'm sure it isnt focused on all the major targets.

    True, but you'd think they would be flying cover over the city or something. Then again, thats a tactic for a sane person, if planes were launched they are probably flying over Saddam's palaces.

    I think everyone's nervous, this may be 9000 miles away, but it feels very close to home.

    What do you mean??? Your brothers and sisters who are in the military are in the Middle East as well. Australia has committed troops and resources to the conflict. They may have not committed 250,000 troops but your military is much smaller than ours is.

    Trav: All I can give is unconfirmed reports. I actaully think that report may have been false, as there would have been reports of actual action in the air...

    That's the biggest shame. Their the ones we're supposed to be "liberating".

    IST 06:00 Pentagon: Cruise missiles measured in “two digits” fired from vessels in Red Sea and Persian Gulf against “senior leadership targets” in Baghdad. They are believed to be Saddam or one of his two sons.

    A few intel sites I used to be part of which went quiet for years but are suddenly active again... I only started checking again last week.

    So far, they're about 15 minutes ahead of the news sites.

    further update:

    IST 06:10 Pentagon sources: “Targets of opportunity” hit in first stage of attack reportedly five members of Saddam regime at highest levels – possibly Saddam’s sons or top generals. Strike enabled by intercept or very recent intelligence from someone very close to president.

    'Parently troops are being told to hold their ground, this is mainly an air and special forces only operation, and is apparently just a one-night thing, not the actual "war"...

    Guess we'll see though.

    Thanks for the intel, Jer.

    I, for one, would appreciate if rhetoric about anything be left out of this thread. There really are plenty of other threads for that. So far this is a decent informational thread and I for one, appreciate that.

    I dunno what's accurate and what's not, just repeating what I'm seeing from my 15 open windows. I think I'll go to bed, though, as it appears ready to slow down.

    It seems just a few "high value" targets were attacked. I guess the true onslaught is yet to happen. I figured we'd wait until nightfall to attack. Maybe that's when the big thrust will begin.

    Well, seems it was highly like Saddam AND his two sons were in the building. No sources confirming that or whether they are alive, however the building is still standing, apparently...

    I'm off to bed, as this seems basically over, at least for the next few hours.

    Right now, the Irak TV is broadcasting religious programs and apparently a speech of Saddam.
