Well said. In terms of experience, these Terrorists or Insurgents don't fight like the V.C. or the NVA.

And heck yeah, we learned a lot from the Tet Offensive and Somalia. But, again there are new challenges and I think we are unprepared for this...guard duty. No matter what, this is war is questionable from the start.

If that's what you truly believe, then you're entitled to your opinion but I must respectfully disagree.

I'm not about to say that I know HOW it should be done, but Fallujah is a problem that must be solved if there is to be any hope of stability for the future of Iraq. You can criticize how its done, say this or that against opperations, but that's one fact I can't think of anyone disagreeing with. Fallujah must be stabilized.

As far as the USA "misreporting" ... well, it may take awhile to confirm and reconfirm things, but they're generally going to be pretty straightforward eventually.

It's been said that the leaders of the insurgents have already melted away. They will probably resurface in another town and begin their 'activities' all over again. It's going to take a while before this civil unrest dies away I'm afraid.

If anything their ability to operate is disturbed and in some ways destroyed when they get uprooted.
They have to start creating their security network from scratch. They may have lost key stuff while moving.
Higher risk of people ratting on them.
etc.

This isn't good at all.

It's common sense they would hussle to another city, but why was there no plan for countering it? Afterall, key rule of war is to never let your enemy escape.

But then, i'm not the hotshot at CENTCOM.

Not to downplay the Fallujah mission, it's still importaint, but it makes one curious.

Probably because they don't know where they're going.

That's true, I guess it boils down to one thing: not enough troopers

but you can't bring more in, bad public perception by the US, world, Iraqi's, etc. As if we were losing so "send more"
