They're mopping up in Tal Afar today, and getting ready to push on to Ramadi, Qaim, etc. This push by the Iraqis may have major consequences for the insurgents' ability to operate, because the Iraqis now have the numbers and local expertise to hold these areas.
The indispensable GatewayPundit has this little tidbit from Iraqi TV that you can bet you won't see in the Western media:
The station showed a demonstration of about 150 people of Tal Afar holding banners declaring: "We call on the government to kick out terrorists from Tal Afar." One young man told a television interviewer, "What we want from the Iraqi government is to kill those terrorists."Things are changing.
