We have a clash between US Marines and Iraqi troops on the Iraq/Kuwait border, with heavy artillery fire. It must be dark soon in Iraq.

Update:The ground and air wars appear to have been unfolding simultaneously. Sky News is reporting that the Iraqi border town of Umm Qasr, on the mouth of the Euphrates river, has fallen. British and US Marines are apparently acting simultaneously.

Ten thousand years ago, agriculture was invented and the first human civilizations came into being within spitting distance of these places.
