Three graphics worth your time . . .
a good visual summary of recent events is posted at Carnivorous Conservative. Also, The New York Times has another pretty good graphic on its front page, detailing the current locations of the infantry battalions. Two notes: first, in the north of the city, in the Askari neighborhood, it shows a "high-value target" team. I wonder who they are catching? Second, west of the Euphrates, it details the movements of the 3rd Light Armored Reconnaissance battalion -- vindicating this site once again, as we've noted the Marines in the cordon are most likely Reconnaissance and Light Armored Reconnaissance units. Carnivorous Conservative has integrated this graphic into his own and the outcome is excellent.
