Command Post has it all, of course.
The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And this war become a real quagmire
Come on baby, set Fallujah on fire.
We did all we could. We tried ceasefires, we tried to get the women and children to leave. We asked them to lay down their weapons. We did the house to house thing.
If we don't do this, they're only going to laugh at us. While they're killing us.
Will there be ripple effects? Sure there will. Should that stop us from decimating these animals? No. The time to win friends in Fallujah is over. They never were our friends to begin with.
A few thousand terrorists are in Fallujah. And they aren't just Iraqis. They're Syrians, Afghans, Iranians, et al. Get them while they're gathered. And put al Sadr atop the pyre.
