Marines ready for battle
Nov. 4 - 15,000 American soldiers and marines crept forward, glancing warily at each
other as they approached a bomb-scarred building covered with Arabic
lettering. Suddenly, one of them shouted "Sniper!" and another dropped to
the ground as if wounded.
All of them, though, seem eager to prove their mettle and at last
confront the insurgency head on.

Nov. 5 - For the three days proceeding the battle the
Marines pounded the city with howitzers, fighter jets and the dreaded A-130
Nov. 7 - US airplanes dropped more than 20 container bombs,
holding more than 40,000 anti-personnel cluster bombs on Fallujah Monday
night. The American bombing targeted the neighborhoods of al-Jaghifi and al-Jawlan.
Israeli advisors spread propaganda
Jewish advisors prepped Matrines with
tales of human bombers, and Muslim fighters were taking amphetamines.
Marines would take no chances, wheter it was children or women.
"From that point on, the rule was the so-called 'double tap': two
bullets in every body," he said.
The night before the assault began,
the order came down that troops could shoot any male on the street
between the ages of 15 and 50 if they were viewed as a security
threat, regardless of whether they had a weapon.
When marines asked a gunnery sergeant for clarification, he told
his men if they saw any military-aged males on the street "Drop 'em."
The marines had issued special rules of engagement, particularly
for the Falluja operation, that emphasized anyone considered a danger
could be shot.

US snipers kill 17 doctors and nurses
Thursday, 11 November 2004.Doctors and nurses martyred by American fire on their
way to help the people of al-Fallujah.
In a dispatch posted at 12:25am Friday local time
(11:25pm Thursday evening Mecca time) the al-Fallujah correspondent of
Mafkarat al-Islam reported as follows:

General Hospital to help their brothers and sisters in al-Fallujah, 50
doctors and nurses gathered in nearby as-Saqlawiyah and set out Thursday
afternoon for the defiant city of al-Fallujah, upon which the US aggressors
are inflicting savage death and destruction, occupying their hospital and
deploying snipers atop its roof to shoot down anyone who dares approach it.
The Mafkarat al-Islam correspondent in al-Fallujah
confirmed that the doctors and nurses arrived near the city where they got
out of their cars in order to slip into al-Fallujah individually so as to
avoid being stopped by the American military.
The volunteers walked to a branch of the Euphrates
River, and on crossing it were entering al-Fallujah when US snipers opened
fire on them. Seventeen of the doctors and nurses were shot dead as they
crossed the river, which is between 150 and 170 meters wide. The survivors
continued across and made it to the defiant city, many of them wounded to
varying degrees by the American gunfire.
U.S. soldiers and Marines launched a
large attack Thursday into the southern half of Fallujah, where insurgents
still holding, opening a second phase in the offensive, U.S. officials said.

A 36-year-old man, who declined to be identified, told Xinhuathat he felt
"ashamed" that he had left Fallujah before the offensive started from Monday
and only sat at his refuge hearing news of killing and dying.
"I regret, for the pains are killing me, and if it's not for my sons and
girls I will travel back to Fallujah to fight to the end,"he said, tears in

Israeli Drones used
Fury had commenced at dark on Nov. 8. Inside the tent, the Marines of unit
VMU-1, which flies the Pioneer Unmanned Aerial Vehicle or UAV, were looking
at video taken from the UAV by a Forward-Looking Infra-Red (or FLIR) camera.
The pictures were bright as day.
"The raiding party wants us to scan across the river," Cpl. Robert
Daniels said, reading a chat-room message that had popped up on his computer
monitor. "Someone's firing."
"Take us east," Neumann said over his shoulder. "Shift from white-hot to

slightly and focused on two black spots hopping from place to place behind

C-130's were used daily
There a staff pulled together information from Marines on the front lines, UAVs, electronic intercepts, agent reports, and other sources. The Fusion
Center compiled target lists, tracked battle damage, prioritized targets,
and assigned shooters.
"Basher," an Air Force AC-130 aircraft, had
illuminated the ambushers with its huge infrared spotlight and was pounding
them with 105 mm artillery shells, each round packing 50 pounds of high
"Same as always," Lt. Parchman said as he watched the runner climb over a
wall. "He's made it. Can't hit him there."
The camera tracked back to the damaged building. Basher had moved on to
another target. The Pioneer UAV circled the building to assess battle
damage. A large door in the back of the building slid open and two men ran
around the side and quickly returned, dragging something behind them. The
Marines watched as this was repeated a few times.
"Are they carrying a heavy weapon or a body part?" asked
an IDF Lt Dov Heim.
"Don't know. We can confirm four down, though," Lt.Nathan Parchman said. "Mark
this as a safe house. We'll come back later for a relook."
"Those Muslims are out there to kill our soldiers or Marines," Lt. Col. Neumann said. "We're in here to find them so our shooters kill them first."
