Where are the Iraqi Soldiers?

Asks John Keegan in today’s Daily Telegraph (London). Good question. Where are the casualties? They are minimal on the coalition side, but we don’t even know how many Iraqis have been killed. And we don’t know what happened to the ordinary Iraqi divisions. They disappeared. I paid a little attention to the TV news this morning and the military briefing and it seems to me that there is a very good chance that either (1) it is all but over, save for some mopping up operations, and maybe a few suicide bombers (of course, this sort of thing could last for months); (2) that the relative ease with which we have taken the airport, and the dissapearance of the Iraqi army, is just a ruse; it is possible that something serious will happen.
