A Successful Operation

Waiting Outside Fallujah

Our Marines have been successful in Operation Spear, in which about a thousand U.S. and Iraqi soldiers have cleared Karabila, an insurgent base near the Syrian border. Speaking of the insurgents, Captain Thomas Sibley said, "Yeah,in a couple of weeks they'll be back and make up for these losses." This situation repeats what has happened in such places as Fallujah. We don't have enough soldiers or enough solid support from the populace to hold these prizes. Judging by current American opinions of the war, we are not going to be sending larger numbers of our people to hold these hard won cities. This strategy, Rumsfeld's lighter army strategy, is repudiated by the real experiences of our soldiers.
