Killing muj is like wetting your pants in a dark suit... 
...It gives you a warm feeling, but nobody notices.

Big news from Western Iraq today: The U.S. has found a concentration of moojies in a town on the Syrian border, and true to the search and attack technique of movement to contact doctrine, it is now piling on the firepower.

U.S. and Iraqi forces estimate that they have killed 50 moojies through small arms fire and through close air support. There doesn't seem to be much doubt about the CAS kills - they were actively engaged in firing at allied troops when they were hit.

Where there's fifty to kill, there's probably another few hundred we can't quite get our steel on. So there's a fairly major engagement going on in Ubaydi, which seems to be going rather well.

The Washington Post reports it on page A-16.

Yep. They had 15 whole pages of news stories they thought were more important than this one.

Splash, out


(Hat tip to Cori Dauber)

Down here in Lafayette, LA, the local paper covered the story not too far into the A section. It was a nice change to see it mentioned.
