8. Well, not hiding but
the military is engaging the populace less often then those halycon days of "Mission Accomplished" since the insurgents have been able to figure out how to effectively operate.

Also you don't see mnay big time operations like that 101st Airborne Op earlier this year.

Here's a link to the Orwellian Multi-NAtional Force Iraq CJTF-7 Website
http://www.cjtf7.army.mil /

For the insurgents It's simply a matter of shooting a few mortars everyday or so, placing a mine/IED and enaging in small arms fire at targets of opportunity until we leave.
