BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A handful of explosions rocked Baghdad at dawn on Thursday as jets roared overhead, Iraqi anti-aircraft batteries opened up and air raid sirens sounded.
Reuters correspondent Nadim Ladki, reporting from the city center, said the blasts appeared to come from the southern suburbs. He heard two or three explosions, followed by a similar number at about 5:30 a.m. local time, an hour and a half after a U.S. deadline for war on Saddam Hussein had passed.

Wow! scary! What's even scarier is I predicted for that contest, and I was about an hour and 10 minutes off. I was going to predict an hour earlier,(as my hubby's flight leaves at that time) making me 10 minutes off. CREEPY! Now i will worry about not only our troops, but my hubby flying tomorrow.
