A more dialed in Iraq warfighter that's the idea behind the Army's new satellite communications "on the move" device. The solution will include a compact device that integrates land and satellite communications with a push-to-talk interface. This will enable the Army to utilize cross-band capabilities so personnel can take advantage of both communication links. Once deployed, the device will provide greater situational awareness and speed and flexibility to fast moving forces in Iraq.

A hiccup in Iraq. "We're supposed to have all combat forces out of the cities by June," says U.S. military spokesman General David Perkins. But the before that can happen, Al Qaida has to be dealt with. Perkins says "We have said before, for al Qaida to win they have to take Baghdad, but in order to win they have to hold on to Mosul." They are still holding on in Mosul. Perkins says to bring the conflict to an end, Iraq's neighbors, particularly Syria, are going to have to stop allowing foreign fighters to come into Iraq.
