Final Redoubt?

Go to this Fox link, Americans Push Deeper Into Fallujah go to the right hand side of the page and watch the video entitled, "Closing In," for the latest from a Retired Army LtCol with TF 2/2 in the city. TF 2/2 just destroyed an enemy force of 25 insurgents. Other highlights from this report: -"massive artillery prep was just executed." -"soldiers are continuing to clear house-by-house." -says they are "in the extreme southeastern portion" of the city -says "enemy strongpoints" are composed of "multiple two-three man anti-armor killer teams." The article linked says, "U.S. forces are taking incoming fire from mobs of insurgents on the city's perimeter. To fight back, Marines are calling in air strikes." If there are mobs, then our cordon is working. This is excellent news. An alert reader has emailed that another embed report from Fox details the ambush of 9 Army armored vehicles in the city. All of these reports indicate the final salient for the defense. Fox is promising two hours of Fallujah coverage from 3-5p central, but is currently in a post-orgasmic state about the Peterson verdict. I'd much rather hear North give his thoughts.

I am sure the Ramrods of 2/2 Inf. are looking to settle a few scores as Ramrod 7, their CSM, was reported KIA earlier in the battle. Only fitting that they bring the heat to the bad guys.

OK, I give up! There isn't anything on the Fox front page that I can find called "Closing In"

More MSM lies.

Headline:"Police Lose Control of Mosul Amid Uprising"

Uprising? A handful of armed thugs. Halfway into the article:

"Gunmen attacked the headquarters of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan party in an hourlong battle that a party official said left six assailants dead."

Huh. This "uprising" is getting shot down. Lose control? Sounds like the jihadis are losing control.

And then there is this little gem.

"Fallujah militants fought Marines to a standstill last April during a three-week siege"

Standstill. Right.

The headline you wont see:

"Mosul Residents Crush Insurgent Attack"
