But notice who responded...and it wasn't US Soldiers.

Progress indeed.
Iraqi police and security guards battled suspected armed robbers with automatic rifles in the centre of the Iraqi capital on Friday.

About a dozen policemen closed off a main street right outside Baghdad's two main hotels and traded fire with an unknown number of armed men holed up in a building, witnesses said.

Security guards from the hotels and nearby businesses joined in the fight to flush out the suspects as stall-holders cowered on the pavement next to the river Tigris.
