"This was not a Shiia uprising," Myers said. "Sadr is a marginalized figure, and he's being marginalized more and more every day by his own actions..."
Myers also spoke on the issue of troop rotation in Iraq, after news that some 20,000 troops will be held over in the theater for as much as three months.
"The duration for that additional capability to be here in Iraq is to be determined," he said. "It will depend on events here on the ground. But I think what it shows is our resolve to see this situation through."
Fallujah Standoff Can't Continue, CPA Official Says
.."our Marines have been on the receiving end of shots and violence over the past week".. Dan Senor told reporters.
If discussions to peacefully resolve the Fallujah situation "don't bear fruit," Army Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt noted, then U.S. Marines are prepared to resume combat operations to defeat the insurgents.
The military situation across Iraq remains relatively quiet, Kimmitt noted. However...enemy forces continue to attack U.S. supply convoys along roads leading to and from Baghdad.... (an apparent concerted effort) "..to interfere with our lines of communication (and) main supply routes.."
Prayer warriors on duty. Welcome!
