The Beginning of the End Has Begun

The assault on Fallujah has begun. Analysis to follow.

UPDATE: The Iraqi troops love their leader and understand the gravity of their cause:
Before the main assault, Allawi visited the main U.S. base outside Fallujah to rally Iraqi troops.

"The people of Fallujah have been taken hostage ... and you need to free them from their grip," he told the soldiers at the camp, who swarmed around him when he arrived. "Your job is to arrest the killers but if you kill them, then so be it."

"May they go to hell!" the soldiers shouted, and Allawi replied: "To hell they will go."

Godspeed boys.
