Jubilation in Streets as American Tanks Drive to Center of Baghdad

At about 2:15 this morning, not being able to sleep, I tuned in to MSNBC where they were covering a real time fire fight at the bridgehead in Al Kut by Bob Arnot, the embedded reporter. He was with a small unit of the 4th Marines. Unbelievable!!!

In the aftermath of the battle somebody repeated a comment made by Brig. General Kelly. I might not have this absolutely verbatim; when asked if he or his Marines were concerned about the upcoming battle for Baghdad he made this remark:

" We're Marines, we took Iwo Jima, Baghdad ain't ****! "

Hope this quote gets more coverage and gets the place in history it deserves!
