I understand what your saying about respect aussiejohn. It takes allot of courage to stand up to US marines when you know your probally going to die. But you have to remember that our guys are over there getting killed by road side bombs and getting shot in their back. For your short on guys question I know the Indiana NG is getting ready to ship out some MP and infantry units.

I think what AussieJohn means is that you've gotta recognise the fact that it takes a lot of guts or a lot of stupidity to stand up to the shear weight of forces against them. And as it's been said "all the stupid ones are dead", so now only the crafty and brave are left.

Some more news from Fallujah:

FALLUJA, Iraq (Reuters) - U.S. warplanes, artillery and mortars struck areas across Falluja Monday as groups of diehard insurgents held out to the last in the week-long battle.

Iraqi interim Prime Minister Iyad Allawi has said he doesn't believe any civilians were killed in the offensive, which has left 38 U.S. soldiers, 6 Iraqi troops and more than 1,200 insurgents dead. But witness accounts contradicted him.

A member of an Iraqi relief committee told Al Jazeera television he saw 22 bodies buried in rubble in Falluja's northern Jolan district Sunday.

"Of the 22 bodies, five were found in one house as well as two children whose ages did not exceed 15 and a man with an artificial leg," Mohammed Farhan Awad said.

I think it would be a very hard sell to make anyone believe that no civilians were killed in that fighting.

I like how they threw in the artificial leg bit.
