Not sure what's going on, but...

It's late Saturday night, and there is a huge amount of noise in the city of Baghdad right now. There are cars honking in the streets, people yelling, and all kinds of gunfire. The base intercom just went on and informed us that this is celebratory gunfire, and the base is not under attack. From all the celebrating, you'd think they caught Zarqawi or something. I'm hoping we'll see some good news soon. Stay tuned...

Update-
It was celebration for the Iraqi national soccer team winning a match. Good heavens. Well, they went very far in answering questions about how well-armed the Shiia are. If the Sunnis want a civil war after we leave here, they definitely have their work cut out for them, because the Shiia have quite the stockpiles of weapons and ammo. Last night left a lot of the infantrymen here in utter amazement at the amount of ordnance flying around- really spectacular stuff.
