their fight the Kurdes against an Al-Q. network muslims terrorist and Saddam troops.

WASHINGTON, March 26 (UPI) -- Around 1,000 U.S. Army paratroopers have landed in Kurdish-controlled northern Iraq, the leading edge of what is
expected to be the northern front in the war on Saddam Hussein, a military official said Wednesday.
Earlier Wednesday, media embedded with the U.S. military reported that a large column of Iraqi armor perhaps as many as a 1,000 strong was moving
south from Baghdad toward Najaf and the U.S. 7th Cavalry of the 3rd Infantry Division. But military officials downplayed the reports.
