Ramadi Offensive Imminent?
Animals will instinctively leave an area when danger is sensed yet unseen by people, such as how a flock of birds or a herd of wild mustangs will suddenly change course in unison and with allacrity. Observing the flow of people during a conflict can sometimes foretell impending violence as accurately. Security Watchtower has the details of this observation in Ramadi, Iraq.
According to some reports out of Ramadi, citizens have been leaving the Anbar city in anticipation of a pending U.S.-led offensive on insurgents and terrorists that have taken up refuge in the city. Conditions in the Sunni dominated city have reportedly deteriorated, with no electricty or running water and food and medical supplies running into shortages.
