#3 Yes, that is a whole lot of weapons! It is clear that the locals are helping ID the bad guys and where they store their weapons. That means that the locals are backing the government and see them as the strong horse (a horse that is getting stronger by the day). The tipping point appears past. This stuff seems to be happening at an accelerating rate. All good. Get er done before Obama can screw it up.

#4 totaled (1,739) mortar rounds, (873) mines, (445) artillery rounds, (347) rocket-propelled grenades, (267) rockets, (227) missile launchers, (109) improvised explosive devices, (74) grenades, (35) 122mm rounds, (27) explosively formed penetrators and (14) missiles.

Dang! You could have one fine-ass civil war re-enactment with that hardware, if not an actual one.

And yeah, what remoteman said!
