Close combat, man to man fighting in a time of unpersonal warfare
We can't escape it, every day in the news we hear about the battle for Fallujah, I however want to know your opinions on Americas methods, there alliance with the new Iraqi army and of course the fact this is one of the few battles fought in the streets man to man, building to building by a civilised country.
Well this is going to be another bloodbad 100-1000 death hey who is counting
a civilised country....who :confused:
In my opinion we should move alot more troops in and get it done faster.
XP(nl) a civilised country....who :confused:
I am not defending terrorists but most people living there are people liek you and me man...the media doesnt want to focues on the people who live there that suffer collateral damage. the people there are civil enough not to attack other countries or blow themselves up...i mean sure there are terrorists and they should be castrated and shot but alot of people there are good people and deserve to be treated like one.
and of course the fact this is one of the few battles fought in the streets man to man, building to building by a civilised country.
What is that sopposte to mean?
I hate thoses "civilized world" comments. Irak is a civilized country, it was civilized 4000 years ago and it still is...

I wonder how delusional the guys running the show down there really is......they are facing a guerilla force, and they broadcast their intentions to attack in advance. Nice way to let the opponent fade away and emerge somewhere else. Guerrillas never win wars but their adversaries often lose them. Scary they still thinks in terms of real estate, while they are really fighting ideas. You don't cure diseases by fighting the symptoms. apparently, now 40 years since France figured out that normal military thinking doesn't apply to guerrillas, particularily when fighting muslim religious nuts, the bright heads in Pentagon has still not figured it out. And don't tell me they wasn't warned about this situation, but God's own president can't be wrong, can he?
I take what n0e says way too seriously

Not much to talk about on this subject really.
I feel that is about time. I know that these are peoples houses, but just ask that taxi driver that was being held hostage, that lived in flalujah, if he is happy we came and found him. or do you think he would rather have just sat there with his wrists and ankles tied with wire? Im just sad that we went in now instead of months ago. We might have been able to save some of the ones that are in the videos in the link above that are now missing there heads. Its sad that we lost 18 last count of our own solders, but this is war, and that is a product of war.
Well the Americans claim to control most of the Fallujah, however the south of Fallujah is still under millitant control.
I just hope by televising this battle so much people see that street fighting like this is not heroic, or fun.
For example, no one surrenders in war, the Americans demonstrated this when after injuring an insurgent insteadof taking him in and caring for him, a marine whipped out his m16 and shot the insurgent.
