Though enemies have tried to dismantle his resolve, the President continues in the same vein. There is no turning back. There is no abandonment of the millions of Iraqis set free. Though other countries such as France, Germany and Russia have done little but carp, US-led coalition keeps on keeping on. Though US Democrats have done little but complain, US-led coalition keeps on keeping on.
The same is evidenced in New Iraq in the latter part of November. Overseeing the attacks against neighborhood enemies in particular is 1st Armored Division Brig. Gen. Martin E. Dempsey. He summed up his efforts by stating to media: "What I want to make sure the enemy knows is that there is no sanctuary in Baghdad."
It’s called Iron Hammer. It means business. It’s calculated with state of the art analysis and precision. It’s combing the areas, going after specific terrorists, then hammering them out of hiding or out of existence altogether.
The result: "Enemy attacks against the coalition in and around Baghdad have dropped by 70 percent since Operation Iron Hammer began November 12," according to John D. Banusiewicz, reporter, American Forces Press Service.
