Ring any bells for you?

     Tom Dispatch has this quote in a very long article about Fallujah, which instantly reminded me of nothing so much as the buildup to the Iraq War itself.

With the power of that threat[Josh: massive force] in mind, our offensive against Falluja has been one of the slowest developing and most publicly announced events of recent times. This, in turn, means we have left the Fallujan insurgents all the time in the world to plan for the defense of the city or to fade away as the fighting begins.

     Just in case you thought the Image President had learned anything.
