Today must be Army Lingo Day here...G2 is Army shorthand for Intelligence. And according to the intel, things might get noisy in northern Iraq.

U.S. soldiers of Task Force Olympia in northern Iraq are bracing themselves for ?spectacular attacks? as the desperation of enemy forces continues to grow, Army Brig Gen. Carter Ham said Tuesday.

?There is evidence that we are likely to see an increase in activity based on [an increase] in terrorists, foreign fighters, extremists, criminals [and] former regime elements,? Ham said during a press briefing in Baghdad, hooked in to the Pentagon. ?They are attacks against coalition and attacks on symbols of progress, whether economic or otherwise.?

The use of recent terrorist tactics is ?evidence of the desperation of our enemy,? Ham said.
