I remember way back when President Bush announced the end of all major military operations in Iraq.
He definately waited till the end of the election to launch this offensive against the city of Fallujah. Had he waged a battle of this size during the election, people would have realized he was lying about the end of all major military operations.
It’s probably something that has to happen though. I’m just glad that the Iraqi interim government is participating in this operation. U.S. forces doing this alone would be a huge mistake. Having the Iraqis helping makes it look like we’re fighting a good fight in Fallujah.
