Anti-aircraft fire in Baghdad

CNN is reporting that Baghdad air defense forces are firing into the air, but there are yet no bombs dropping yet. It’s almost dawn in Baghdad. CNN says this is *not* the beginnig of the war. No one seems to know what’s happening right now, least of all the Iraqis. Might be a softening up, might be panicky Iraqis, we really don’t know yet.
As yet, no reports of airplanes. —
