Further to numerous news stories about the presence of US, British and Australian special forces inside Iraq, fresh reports seem to suggest the American-led offensive already started last Friday.
Usually well informed DEBKA FILE reports that US and British commandos crossed into Iraq from Kuwait, occupying a number of Iraqi oil fields. In addition, Western aircraft started flying some 600 bombing sorties per day. Strategic B1 bombers have been used against targets positioned outside the 'no fly zones' without any attempt to disguise the new attacks.
