How long until we have to go back in Fallujah?

How long until the US figures out it made a mistake in Fallujah and goes back in to clean things out?

A more realistic question would be--How long before the US can successfully ethnically cleanse Iraq?

You say that like it's a bad thing...

Now, the biggest question is: will Sri Lanky take the bait like the panicky hippy that he is?

arab text books tell children to consider non muslims sub humans. with that understanding we know that they deny reality therefore they are either illusioned or crazy. for Skiritai to take the side of the iraqi mob says he is intelectually equal to them.

My guess is: some time after November 2

The government doesn't want to loose any more troops between now and then.

Wow Settle, I was counting on Sri Lanky making a jackass out of himself, but you were just too damned quick!

Gotta love that "text color=black" option...

Care to back this up? Got an "Arab" textbook lying around that you can scan and post here? Any links? Any fucking idea whatsoever?

didn't think so.

As for the question: You kinda have to drive through Fallujah(well, pretty darned near it) to get into Baghdad. So I'd wager the US soldiers are there, have been there, and will continue to be there for as long as the US are in Iraq. A better question would be in what capacity are they in and around Fallujah, but since no one on this board would have a fucking clue, we'd all just be talking out of our asses some more.

Sri Lanky != Skiritai. Sri Lanky is a little pissed off communist, Skiritai is somewhat more level headed and more to the center.

hate to bring a thread back to the topic but - small arms skirmishes on the outskirts of Fallujah along with the airstrikes...does that qualify as ground warfare?
