US forces to 'flatten Falluja' before Iraq's first vote

Scotsman.com News - International - US forces to 'flatten Falluja' before Iraq's first vote

"We had to destroy the village to save it."

For those who don't know, Fallujah's got a population of @200,000. That's equivalent to Montgomery, AL; Scottsdale, AZ; Fremont, CA; Ft Wayne, IN; Des Moines, IA; Shrevesport, LA; Grand Rapids, MI; Yonkers, NY; Chesapeake, VA; Richmond, VA; Spokane, WA;, Tacoma, WA; and Madison, WI.

Pick one of those cities and imagine that foreign forces "flatten" it. Imagine how you'd react.

Now imagine that we can possibly win this war in Iraq. Who are we fighting, anyway? What are we trying to win?
