NPR : U.S. Troops Push Southward Through Fallujah

An Alert Reader has posted this story in the comments section, noting that when one of the RCT command posts played the Marine Corps hymn on Wednesday, the insurgents attacked, and the commander decided to play it every day. UPDATE: The Marines' Hymn. Sorry.

Month ago I read about the Marines taking a sound weapon to Iraq. It was to be use for crowd control. The sound directed at the crowd would disorient the people. But, the U.S. was worried that it might permanently damage their hearing.

Why isn't something like this used to capture the Mosques? You would not have to damage their religious shrines, but you could disorient the terrorist long enough to approach and capture the building without the danger of crossing open spaces with alert defenders

PsyOps is an interesting tool of war and we have a good grasp of how to use it. If the MArine Corps hymn gets the ratbastids out to fight and die,,then play it all day. Great job on the blog Chester,keep up the good work. Semper fi, USMC Class of 1970

I may as well say this because some jarhead sooner or later will comment. The proper title is The Marine Hymn.
