The news on this morning was dominated by reports coming out of Iraq of very heavy fighting in Sadr City and Najaf. The U.S. military reported as many as 300 Iraqi insurgents killed. The Fifth Cavalry had just taken over duties in Sadr City, thinking that they would be doing mostly civil affairs work. They were wrong. This was one day that didn't involve strategy or the mass movement of troops. This was one nasty firefight in a very small area. Casualties were high, and for hours, one American unit was trapped, the soldiers fighting for their lives.
