The war has started
By Robert Fox, Defence Correspondent and David Taylor, Evening Standard

British and American troops were involved in fierce fighting near Iraq's main port today as the war to topple Saddam Hussein began.

The firefight broke out near Basra as men of the Special Boat Service targeted the strategically vital city and the oilfields in southern Iraq.

At the same time allied troops were flooding into the demilitarised zone on the Iraqi border with Kuwait 40 miles away to take up positions for an all-out invasion.

I am watching the story on Foz right now. Seems the war has started. Who fired first or was the a pre-emptive strike?

Thanks for the info William. Our local news just mentioned it nonchalantly.

Nonchalantly? Some news service you've got there. (Notice the sarcasm in my voice?)

If the start of a war is only mentioned "nonchalantly", I wonder if they'd have any extra coverage if the sun blew up?

"The sun just blew up & our whole planet will be roasted in just a little more than 6 minutes. Film at 11:00."

MSNBS (cable version not net version) is now reporting that warplanes are bombing sites around Basra and troops are pouring into the demilitarized zone.

Hold on tight this is gonna be a rough ride!
