Brain Dead in Baghdad

While it is unclear whether the attack that opened the liberation of Iraq killed Saddam, the actions of the Iraqi military are those of a brain dead organization so far. The coordinated heavy bombardment has been postponed while Iraqi units discuss surrender with US defense officials. In the meantime the Marines appear to be moving toward the liberation of Basara the third largest city in Iraq. Army units are driving across southern Iraq on their way to Baghdad and should be there sometime on Friday. The US Defense Department reports that US units are also on the ground in northern Iraq. There are reports that four oil wells have been set on fire, a realatively small number compared to the 800 set ablaze in Kuwait. If Saddam is still alive, he apparently is not exerting effective control at this time.
