Flush from the taking of Baghdad and with the toppling of Saddam Hussein's statue still fresh on their minds, coalition forces on Thursday focused their attention on the northern Iraqi cities of Tikrit, Mosul and Kirkuk, where they will try to stamp out the remaining fighters loyal to Saddam.
America's Kurdish allies achieved a major breakthrough -- entering Kirkuk near some of Iraq's most productive oil fields. There was shooting on the northwest edge of the city, but the extent of pro-Saddam resistance was unclear.
Some reporters embedded with coalition troops in the north said Kirkuk had already fallen to the Kurds.
We'll get the latest on the coalition's progress from our FOX News correspondents in the field and a battlefield assessment from retired U.S. Air Force Gen.
