131 fewer terrorist murderers on the streets of Iraq

Iraqi Forces Seize 131 Suspected Insurgents in Raid

It’s the little victories that count, but it sure is nice to read about the big ones.

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – Iraqi soldiers backed by U.S. helicopters killed several suspected insurgents and seized 131 more in a dawn raid Saturday, capturing tons of explosives earmarked for attacks on the holy city of Kerbala, officials said.

“It was a surprise operation based on intensive surveillance by military intelligence,” Defense Minister Hazim al-Shaalan told Reuters. “It was very successful.”
