After eight days of fighting, Pentagon officials said close to 90,000 U.S. troops were in Iraq, and that an additional 100,000 to 120,000 were on the way. All were part of a military blueprint made up long ago, officials said, sensitive to criticism that commanders had underestimated the need for troops to quell stronger-than-expected resistance or protect long supply fines.
One day after Iraq claimed
more than a dozen civilians were injured in a missile strike in Baghdad, Brig. Gen. Vincent Brooks said it was possible that an Iraqi missile was responsible. “It may have been a deliberate attack inside of town,” he added.
More than 25 Marines were wounded in fighting near An Nasiriyah, one of the southern Iraq cities where irregular forces have put up far more resistance than American military planners expected. U.S. officials said some or all of them were hurt when one
Marine unit mistakenly fired on another. No deaths were reported and no Marines were missing from that incident, officials said. Brooks said the battle lasted 90 minutes, and WTVD-TV of Durham, N.C., which has a reporter with the Marines in An Nasiriyah, reported the Marines had been wounded during fierce house-to-house fighting.
Tb the south, British forces continued efforts to gain control over Basra, but die-hard defenders of Saddam’s regime have held positions inside the
city amid reports of clashes with the local population.
British officials also reported finding a cache of about IOO chemical protection suits and respirators at an abandoned Iraqi command post, the second find in the last few days.
Bush and Blair used their news conference to demand that the United Nations’ oil-for-food program restart immediately. The program was halted when the United Nations ordered its workers to leave the country.

“They were weaving in and out of traffic,” Gray said.
Ward also said Duke was driving in an “erratic” manner and even on the shoulder at times.
Custard said the lead pursuing officer had a blowout from driving over debris that had collected on the side of the road after last month’s icy rain. The flying debris caused a second officer to wreck his patrol car. and a third pursuant dropped back, leaving one Comal County deputy in pursuit “at a distance” behind Duke.
The chase ended when Duke hit the wall on the left shoulder and lost control of his vehicle near East Rhapsody Road and the airport.
Duke’s car flipped over the right shoulder. The roof and trunk top of the red late model Cavalier were stripped off by wooden posts as it slid across the guardrail.
Children’s clothing, video cassettes, toys and other items suspected of being stolen from a Comal County home, mixed with glass and wreckage, littered the southbound access road. Pieces of the car were scattered 30 yards. The distorted remains of the roof and trunk top were twisted around the guardrail several yards apart.

“It’s apparent that there is some debris that fits the description of what was taken from the residence,” Ward said on the scene.
Sheriff’s deputies Greg Lucas, Homero Balderas, Larry Haecker and Department of Public Safety Trooper Joel Machost were all involved in the chase. Balderas’ police car was wrecked in the chase, and he was taken to McKenna Memorial Hospital as a precautionary measure.
Gray said she was headed to the KB Home Buyers Club on the south access road.
When she got there, she saw the black smoke and the dust near the Rhapsody Road exit right in front of
“As soon as he hit the rail,” Gray said, “the back left tire flipped off.”
A “one way” sign landed in the grass in front of the business. Wendi Frazier, an administrative assistant at KB Home Buyers, said she is certified in CPR and rushed to the car to help. She was looking out the building’s facade of windows about 50 yards from the accident.
“Before I could say, ‘Call 9-1-1’ you heard sirens,” she said. She rushed to offer assistance and at first looked around the vehicle for the victim, then realized Duke was pinned under the car.

“I just hope God took him right away,” said Rose Munoz, San Antonio resident who also witnessed the accident.
SAPD handled the accident, and Comal County sheriff’s investigators examined the mangled vehicle and debris.
It took two tow trucks to lift the wreckage from between the guardrails. The accident delayed traffic through noon and SAPD blocked the south access road until the accident was cleared from the road late afternoon.
