    The resistance has suffered a loss of more than 2,000 combatants, out of a total force estimated by U.S. Central Command at about 5,000 (other estimates are higher) as well as its only secure base in the country. But both the Arab media and ours emphasize that the attack on Fallujah has made a lot of Arabs mad. By this logic, once we've killed all the terrorists, they'll be invincible.

    Bill, classic article. I loved the last line in your quote, and the following:

    "The experience of human history has been the more people you kill, the weaker they get," Thompson noted.
