In Which NTodd Says His Peace
Teeth And Claws
[I]nsurgents kept up attacks on U.S. troops and their allies across Iraq despite a show of force after the downing of the U.S. helicopter in Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit on Friday.
"We do believe it was brought down by ground fire," said Lieutenant-Colonel Steve Russell of the 4th Infantry Division based in Tikrit.
Russell also said U.S. forces had reimposed the 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. curfew on the city, which had been lifted at the start of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan last month.
"This is to remind the town that we have teeth and claws and we will use them," Russell said after his troops blasted two abandoned houses and a warehouse with machine gun and heavy weapons fire.
I think the insurgents have reminded us that they have teeth and claws and will use them, too.
