Video: Friday Night Fights

This video is making the rounds–it’s American and Iraqi special forces shaking things loose inside Sadr City, Baghdad. Is that a 25mm cannon or a minigun that sounds like a flatulent Brontosaurus? And is that a horse galloping through the streets of Baghdad in the first shot?

Don’t know the date on that footage, but our soldiers have making deep incursions into Sadr City today, (h/t Ace) chasing away Mahdi Army “rocket boxes” that have been barraging Baghdad with 122-mm rockets. Those guys in the video look plenty capable of dealing with Sadr’s goons, but the the Wash Times reports that the Mahdi Army is itching for a rematch, and the market is betting on a fight:

Militiamen loyal to anti-American cleric Muqtada al-Sadr are positioning explosives to defend the major routes into Baghdad’s Sadr City neighborhood in anticipation of a major battle with U.S. and Iraqi government forces, residents said yesterday.

Iraqis also said families in Sadr City and other Shi’ite areas of Baghdad are stocking up on food, fearing new fighting that will leave them unable to get to the markets.

Sounds tense. Say an extra prayer for our troops.
