The Thunder Rolls: Taji Rail Lines Open for First Time Since 2003

Thursday, 06 March 2008

CAMP TAJI The railroad lines of the Taji Qada, north of Baghdad, have laid dormant since the beginning of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, but as a result of the efforts of Multi-National Division Baghdad Soldiers, the first train let loose a thunderous blast of its horn March. 5, as it slowly rolled through the gates of Camp Taji.
"This particular train is part of a proof of principle, said Cpt. James Kerns, a Harrison County, Ky., native, who serves as the assistant operations officer for the Base Defense Operations Command (BDOC), Multi-National Division Baghdad. "(This mission was executed) to facilitate the Iraqi railroad infrastructure improvement so they can, in the future, utilize the train and rail system to carry goods."

With a functioning rail system, the Iraqi Security Forces can benefit from the results as well as the people of Iraq.

  • The jihadists are taking it up the ass without Vaseline. Their ideology crumbles. It is easy to grab a weapon, shoot up a truck and go ape on a video but when was the last time the neo-jihadists have done something for the average citizen of Iraq?
