U.S. troops find several caches of insurgent weapons in southern Baghdad. Troops found a truck with a bomb. Then they searched a nearby house.
"Inside, soldiers found grenade launchers, AK-47 rifles, artillery rounds, cell phones, bomb detonators and eight Iraqi police uniforms. Using a metal detector, the unit discovered five plastic barrels buried in the garden 6 inches underground.
The barrels contained rocket-propelled grenade launchers with dozens of rounds, as well as dozens of rockets, AK-47s, machine guns, pistols, Chinese and Bulgarian hand grenades and more than 16,000 rounds of ammunition.
Add this to the capture of Zarqawi's bombmaker and that spells a good day us and our Iraqi allies. The elections only 6 days away. Every cache uncovered and every bad guy captured increases the chances of a less violent election. Because it will be violent. Still, a violent election is better than mere violence.
