Two C-130's landed under cover of darkness tonight on the military side of the airport. US forces are in firm control of the airport, although some areas of the vast complex are still being inspected. Chemical detection units are on hand to protect personnel, and abandoned gas masks are being made available to the Iraqi prisoners being held there.
As the Marines moved in from the east, the city of Baghdad is now surrounded by Coalition forces. All major roads out of the city are under control of Coalition forces.

Three British troops were killed while hundreds of Iraqis were killed and hundreds taken prisoner. As the British entered the city, the residents cheered and then looted buildings after the British cleared them of enemy fighters.

Air support was requested after a column of Iraqi tanks tried to turn back on advancing Coalition soldiers. The Coalition convoy was near disabled Iraqi tanks when it was struck. The attack was about 25 miles southwest of Irbil.

Large hail broke windows and damaged cars. Three people were injured from 2.75 inch hail 3 miles south of Sulphur Springs, Texas. An adult male had a broken arm, and two children received head injuries. Breaking the arms represents disarming an enemy so that he is incapable of defending himself (Ezekiel 30:22-24). President Bush is disarming Iraq. The hail was like the plague of hail in Egypt.
Two tornadoes were reported near Aspermont and Graford. Both were at 33 N., for the purifying Judgment of the Holy Spirit. One was at 100 W., for maximum divine good production, and the other was at 98 W., for 'Ichabod, the glory has departed.
Links: | Ha'aretz | AP |The trial of Palestinian terrorist leader Marwan Barghouti began in Israel. Barghouti is charged with multiple counts of murder. He is a Palestinian legislator and the most senior Palestinian to be tried by Israel since the latest Intifada began two years ago. Barghouti was the leader of Arafat's Fatah terrorist organization in the West Bank.
Barghouti, who has insisted on defending himself,
refuses to recognize the authority of the Israeli court in his prosecution.
Three Palestinians called by the prosecution were declared hostile witnesses
after they refused to testify against Barghouti or to recognize the Israeli
court's authority. The number, 3, corresponds to the Justice of the
Holy Spirit per the meaning of the year, 2003.
The trial of Barghouti was heralded by the semblance of the head of Yasser
Arafat northeast of Puerto Rico on yesterday's weather map. The head
of Arafat transformed into the head of a lion today. Barghouti was
The scene on the weather map portrayed a huge weather elephant that stretched from the Great Lakes through Texas. An elephant represents a demon Commander, such as Baal. A large boar hog was over Baghdad. A boar is a symbol of a demon Power.
Yesterday's weather map also portrayed the semblance of the head of Yasser Arafat northeast of Puerto Rico. Today, the image on the weather map resembled a lion, a symbol of Satan seeking someone to devour. These weather images heralded the trial of Palestinian terrorist leader Marwan Barghouti, which began today in Israel. Barghouti was like Arafat's lion. Three Palestinians refused to testify in the trial. The number, 3, corresponds to the Justice of the Holy Spirit per the meaning of the year, 2003. The meaning here is that the trial of Barghouti cries out for justice. The victims are crying out from the grave, but Israel does not execute even the most vile terrorists. So Barghouti will not receive justice in Israel. Therefore, Israel will bear divine judgment, e.g. the Justice of the Holy Spirit, for not executing justice.
The first US plane landed today at Baghdad Airport. It was Day 96, for the spoils of victory. The airport was part of the spoils of victory of the Iraq War. The airport was also associated with the meaning of the year, 2003, because planes are associated with the air and air symbolizes the Holy Spirit, which is represented by the number, 3.
The British took most of Basra in a major invasion. Three British soldiers were killed, where 3, again, corresponds to the meaning of the year, 2003. The Iraq War is characterized by the number, 3, for the Justice of the Holy Spirit. Both Coalition and Iraqi forces are suffering under the Justice of the Holy Spirit. The dropping of the bomb today on the Kurd convoy was a judgment from the air, which is characterized by the number, 3.
A large elephant stretched from the Great Lakes to Texas. This is the sign of the adultery of Reuben. The Great Lakes are in the region of Naphtali, the doe and symbol of peace. Thus, this also represents the curse of Baal associated with the Middle East peace process. This points to the trial of Marwan Barghouti, which began today in Israel.
A large boar hog was over Baghdad. A boar is the symbol of a demon Power. Demon Powers influence government leaders. They are the world Powers of darkness (kosmokrator demons, Ephesians 6:12). The Battle of Baghdad requires the destruction of the government, which is called the regime of Saddam Hussein. In the hierarchy of Spiritual Warfare, demon Powers must be defeated before the evil king.
This was April 6th, for a man. And it was Day 96, for the spoils of victory. The first US plane landed at Baghdad airport, which is part of the spoils of victory in the Iraq War.
The Iraq War continued to be symbolized the number, 3, for the Justice of the Holy Spirit in suffering. A US plane landed at Baghdad airport, where the air is characterized by the number, 3. A plane dropped a bomb on a Kurd convoy. And 3 British soldiers were killed in the invasion of Basra.
