Matt already finished his change of command inventories. The eastern half of the country looks very much like NTC. The mountain range to our east looks like the north wall of the central corridor. Our vehicles are fueled, and we are just waiting for the artillery guys and 110 CAV to move out. I guess 1-10 hasn’t crossed the river, so we are going to wait awhile. They are supposed to give the MEK the 48-hour ultimatum for capitulation tomorrow. They say they are very disciplined and will comply.
