Roy and this dippy Info Minister will tell is it's really Downtown Phoenix, no doubt, but CNN and FOX is reporting U.S. Armored columns on manuever and possibly fighting in the heart of downtown Baghdad.

Roy, can you confirm it's really Phoenix?  Laugh out loud

The Army is reporting this is THE real deal to take Baghdad. I may have to stay up for a while. You can hear small/medium arms fire with the Fox feed, as that DAMNED drone keeps flying over Baghdad.

I just pulled up the Live cam, just hear wind in the mike, not a lot of small arms or bushmaster cannon fire.

Now CNN and Fox are saying those weren't drones over Baghdad, but circling A-10 Warthogs.

Alpha 1, Fox showed a close-up and its definately an A10. Someone on just speculated that they be making a 'trial-run' to feel-out what kind of resistance they get.

No idea, I got the link from another forum. According to the reporters, this is the real deal. The 3rd ID is going for the throat.

Edit: A Fox News Reporter is broadcasting from the ground of Saddam's main palace.

I'm watching Fox News right now. Greg Kelly has been reporting via video phone from the front lawn of Saddam's main palace.

Col. in tank company: "Saddam Hussein say he controls Baghdad. He's wrong. We control Baghdad, we control his home. We are freeing the Iraqi people."

Captain: "We won't raise our flag because we are here to liberate, not occupy. another US soldier says he will be sleeping in SH's bed."

Col.: "There's running water, gold faucets, and I'm going to take a shower!"

On of the company commanders says that the bathrooms have gold plated fixtures and the water is still running.

First thing he is planning to do is take a shower.



I hope the officers don't hog the hot water, they all deserve it.

They switched back to film of the mosque at the square.

You know it is amazine how there can be a battle raging in one part of town yet the other side is perfectly calm.

Some of those guys probably haven't showered in 19 days - must be getting pretty ripe - perhaps even a weapon of mass destruction right there!. No wonder all the Iraqis are running away as the Americans roll in.

But how sweet it would be to top it off with a shower in Saddam's palaces.

There is a lot of mention of Roy and his beliefs on here. I am one of the ones that is usually amazed that he believes the things he does, but this is clearly just a representation of what is happening on a larger scale, most of the arab countries, and india, pakistan etc, are getting bombarded with the sort of rubbish he spouts every day, and his beliefs are sadly what many in those countries believe. We need to remember that they do not have the benefit of freedom of news like we do. If we don't like cnn, we can watch bbc, or french tv, or al jazeera and combine all of it to form a picture we like. They get one rammed down their throats.

Sad really
