Daily Kos has an interesting comment on the invasion of Falluja. FUBAR'd beyond FUBAR in Iraq: I've meditated on this one all day: Jackie Spinner, the Washington Post embed with the Marines in Fallujah, said in an online chat from the battleground (the mind boggles) on Thursday: "No one I've talked to believes that solving the Fallujah problem will end the violence in Iraq. But, as one Marine officer told me, not solving the Fallujah problem will not end it either." Okay. No one believes the Falluja invasion will accomplish anything. So why did we just sacrifice 56 people the last six days, the vast majority (38) in Falluja? Why have we suffered over 400 seriously wounded, including amputees and spinal and brain injuries?
