AGAINST THE RULES IN FALLUJA

Nov 11 2004 @ 2:58pm

The military seems to have ignored many of its own counter-insurgency guidelines in taking back Falluja. Focusing on territory rather than the organizational structure of the insurgency is not the ultimate goal. Necessary, but by no means sufficient, as the death toll in the rest of the country continues to prove. Noah Shachtman has more. Still, 600 dead mujahideen is a start.
