General John Sattler said:

"The strategy was to seal the town off before we moved in, which we did ... Because of the encirclement and coordination of all [Iraqi and coalition] forces, when [the insurgents] attempted to flee from one zone to another they were killed or captured as they moved back and forth," Sattler said. "We're confident no one has escaped."

I think that this is bulls**t. Just looking at the maps and not even accounting for probable tunnels leading to some safe house outside the city, it would be nearly impossible to completly "seal off the city".

About these "SlaughterHouses" found in the city. I hope pictures and first or at least second hand eyewitness accounts are published and make the "Main Stream News" to show what despiciable bastard animials these extreamist terrorists are.

This is my post

Slaughterhouses Found:

On one hand, my fear of 'shadow boxing' is forefront. This mentality must be crushed. Crushed. Visibly, decisively, openly and painfully. Telegraphing our punches will not achieve this aim.

On the otherhand, the fact that records and dress were left behind suggests a hasty retreat / exit by the sick bastards who originally kept them. This sign shows promise to me that maybe, just maybe, there may be a few important hornets yet left in this nest to squash.

There is no mention of killed terrorists (one way or the other) in the slaughterhouses. Were the buildings abandoned or were they faught for and siezed?

Time will tell.

Happy Birthday Marine Corps,

Chester, Great blog! I think that its a 'sound' plan to encircle the city before you launch the offensive. As for tunnels leading out of the city, I believe that our intelligence on the battlefield would have picked that up a long time ago. We've been in the area since at least April.

My only concern is that after the big buildup, Zarqawi is not there and many of the insurgents slip away. I want a decisive battle to ruin the insurgents day.
