"Wretchard this is the attack to suck our forces away from the fight in Fallujah"

Which would imply coordination between the Sunni Baathists in Fallujah, and the Shiite Badr forces.

Good hunting and safe returns to the troops!

Ar Ramadi is in the Sunni Triangle, Ansar al-Islam had a training camp in the area that was shut down back in June 2003. If Sadr's outfit is operating in the area, the locals are likely to take them apart on their own accord.

Has Sadr ordered up a new batch of virgins for his thugs?

Go get them Marines!

Wretchard this is the attack to suck our forces away from the fight in Fallujah.

The salamikazes are thinking in terms of their own limited numbers and means. I suspect they are unfamiliar with the implications of our having more combat troops on hand than just those around Fallatio.

How did Sadr get his Shiite militia into the Sunni Triangle? Are they sure this isn't Baathists or Ansar?

God Bless our military.

Please, Dear Father, protect these wonderful people the way that they protect us with their selfless acts. Please Bless their families and calm them in their time of terror. Our military continues to ensure our freedoms at great risk and cost to themselves. Please reward these fine and brave folks for all that they do. We ask this in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.

The Marines are deep inside the village and are going house to house. Many arrests.

And WHY are we taking prisoners? We should be killing them all!

Who is Muqtada al-Sadr?

He's a Shia. What's he doing so close to Fallujah? Isn't that Sunni?

How about death!

Plenty of that, too. But you really want those arrests -- haven't you figured out yet that arrests lead to our catching a lot more of these SOBs?

The dustup with the Sadrites is a separate issue - it's been a long time coming, and we need to destroy that militia sooner rather than later.

Im begining to wonder if we have the GUTS to kill all of the bad guys. If we had a "Highway of death" right before the election then that would look very bad with the lib media foaming at the mouths

I hope to God that the commanders at CENTCOM do not hold our guys hands behind their backs on this one. It's time that they step up and give our guys the cover they deserve with whatever we have in the air that can do it. I'm sorry, I'm getting emotional but I am tired of seeing men getting killed because of the fear of collateral damage.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

The insurgents west of Baghdad need reinforcements. They're pretty much down to Ramadi, Fallujah, and Habbinayah.

(there are downsides to having your mug on TV when committing atrocities)

Along those lines, we should make it well known that any of the Jihadi running around with a gun and their face covered will be shot on sight, no questions asked.

If there are, then I suggest we take the friggen gloves off and start kicking some major butt! And BTW, where is our readiness to quell such uprising from the air so our guys don't suffer large numbers of casualties.

Mr. President, I like you, but you must make sure our guys have everything they need in a timely manner. I support you putting our men in, but I want both them and you to be successful. Don't hold back. Be tough fella.

I think that's part of the curfew and the announcement that no one is to be seen with firearms. My assumption is that if they violate that demand, they will be shot first and questions will be asked later.

Last stand of the insurgency.

Or the beginning of a civil war?

From what I have read, we've gone into Fallujah like a big dog today and arrested many of the participants of that attack ...

I'm not a big fan of the "arrest the perpetrators" school of thought. I like the Israeli approach ... kill the leaders.

You have to get your emotions under control. We will get more information by capturing these scum. This will allow us to kill more later.

It would be nice just to have fun but we have to think clearly.
