Bombing raids

Now, the war on terror is obviously one great success. Want proof? Here’s the latest on Falluja, the well-known rebel city in Iraq.

U.S. troops urged civilians to flee Falluja on Friday and launched air strikes on the rebel city ahead of an assault seen as critical to attempts to pacify Iraq before January elections. U.S. forces sealed all roads to the city and used loudspeakers and leaflets in Arabic to tell residents they would detain any man under 45 trying to enter or leave the city.

It must be a hoot living in new and improved Iraq.
