BAGHDAD: A battle raged Thursday in a west Baghdad where residents rose up against al-Qaida intimidation and called for U.S. military help to end threats that kept students from final exams and random gunfire that forced people to huddle indoors, a member of the district council said.
"Called for help" not "expected the military to do."
They rose up in defense of their own lifestyles and then the military backed them up. Very good news.
