Allawi: Major military action in Falluja imminent info
U.S.-led coalition forces have not been able to gain control of the city in the so-called "Sunni Triangle" in the 18 months since they invaded Iraq.
"We have now entered the final phase of attempts to solve Falluja without a major military confrontation," Allawi said. "I hope we can achieve this, but if we cannot, I have no choice but to secure a military solution. I will do so with a heavy heart, for even with the most careful plan, there will be some loss of innocent lives."
Allawi, a former exile once backed by the CIA, said that "the window of such peaceful settlement is closing" for the insurgents...
Is this for real? Are we actually going to finnish the job or let the insurgents go free just as we are about to kick their butts only to deal this them a month later?
"The best form of taking care of troops is first-class training, for this saves unnecessary casualties." Erwin Rommel
