You can run, but you can’t hide
Posted by: mcq on Thursday, September 14, 2006

It started off as a routine day for a couple of insurgents. Drive to work, set up the mortar, blow a few things up and go home:
Two men were detained and a small cache discovered after Coalition Forces observed, with an unmanned aerial vehicle, six men fleeing the origin of an indirect fire attack on the civilians of Khan Bani Sa’ad, south of Baqubah Tuesday.

After two mortar rounds impacted near the village, the nearby UAV observed the men fleeing the suspected origin of the attack in a gray sedan at a high rate of speed. With the help of the UAV, Soldiers from the 1-68 Combined Arms Battalion pursued the suspected mortar team.

The suspected Anti-Iraqi Forces attempted to hide the car in a palm grove then fled on foot in opposite directions. Upon arrival at the scene, 1-68 CAB detained two of the men who had jumped into a nearby irrigation canal. The unit found the sedan along with one 120mm mortar system and six AK-47 magazines.

The detainees, the vehicle, and the cache were transported to Forward Operating Base Warhorse where the detainees are being held for questioning.
UAVs are a wonderful and useful tool. And they can help us a lot if we use them properly. As for the insurgents, good thing for us these guys didn't try to hide in a cemetary. We'd most likely have just let them be had they done so.

Rather "You can hide, but you can’t run." is working rule for the insurgency.
