U.S., Iraqi forces poised to move on Falluja
Commanders give pep talks as possible assault nears
Sunday, November 7, 2004 Posted: 10:32 PM EST (0332 GMT
There were many pep talks given: "you are about to make history," "You are the defenders of democracy," But along with the pep talk, the forces about to storm Falluja were given a chilling reminder of the deadly seriousness of their task. Each was issued a "kill number," to be written in indelible ink on their hands so they can be identified if they die in the fighting.

Falluja has been pounded for months by U.S. forces trying to root out insurgents they believe to be allied with terrorist mastermind Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, but military officials said they now believe al-Zarqawi has left the city.
Military officials said they believe 3,000 to 5,000 insurgents may be inside the city, but they also acknowledge many may have slipped away.

U.S.: Different tactics used in latest Iraqi offensive
Campaign targets Babil province 'in very focused way'
Wednesday, November 24, 2004 Posted: 5:54 PM EST (2254 GMT)
An ongoing U.S.-Iraq campaign against insurgents south of Baghdad will be very different from the recent offensive in Falluja, a U.S. Marine spokesman said Wednesday.
"You don't have 5,000 troops sweeping across the Iraqi countryside," said Capt. David Nevers of the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit. "What we're doing here is developing intelligence patiently and persistently, going after targets in a very focused way."
