Meanwhile, Back in Iraq

Bill Roggio follows operations against Sadr and Iranian-backed secret cells as part of the continuing nationwide offensive called Operation Phantom Thunder.

Both the United States and Britain continue to point the finger at Iran and the Qods Force involvement in training, funding, arming, and planning attacks against Coalition and Iraqi forces inside Iraq. Operations continue to target these Iranian backed secret cells, which include the Qazali Network and "rogue" elements of Muqtada al Sadr's Mahdi Army.

"Iraqi Special Operations Forces, Iraqi Police and Iraqi Army forces destroyed a large weapons cache during an early morning operation June 26 southeast of Nasiriyah," Multinational Forces Iraq reported. "The cache is linked to a rogue Jaysh Al-Mahdi (JAM or Mahdi Army) militant group." One suspect was detained in the operation.

Never again?

The Ho Chi Minh Trail

During the Vietnam War, US pilots could see weapons, military equipment, and war supplies moving on 40-car trains on the railroad near Hanoi and being unloaded from ships in the Haiphong harbor.

They could look, but not strike. Preventing these war supplies from reaching South Vietnam was a primary goal of US strategy, but Air Force and Navy aircraft were seldom allowed to go after them in the North Vietnamese heartland, where they were concentrated and wide open to attack.

Why is Sadr still breathing? Who is protecting him?
