Latest Developments From Falluja

Reports indicate that our forces have pentrated about a kilometer into the city, reaching the Hay Naib al-Dubat and al-Naziza districts. The advance came from the north, a ruse to confuse the defenders whose attention had been diverted by the initial attack into the western edge of town yesterday. Additionally the attack began at 7:00PM local time taking advantage of our force's superior night-fighting ability. Residents of Falluja reported Abu Waleed Saudi, a senior henchman of Abu Musab Zarqawi was killed in action today. Intercepted radio transmissions from Allied forces inside Falluja indicated that they had suffered few casualties and no KIA's in today's action.

Meanwhile in Baghdad, terrorists, attempting to draw attention away from their besieged stronghold, detonated two car bombs outside churches and lobbed mortars at a hospital, killing eleven.

If you're still looking for something to do to contribute to the cause, the 1st Cav web page suggests:

"Make a donation to one of the military relief societies:"
Volunteer at a VA Hospital.

Donate a calling card to help keep service members in touch with their families at Operation Uplink.

Or make a donation to the Fisher House, which provides support to families of wounded veterans being treated in VA hospitals.


Even if you are opposed to the war, do not abandon our warriors!
