Deep Into The Bench!
While our side does not fully control the town it can not be said the terrorists (ie the other side for the morally muddied) control it either.
However, what is most interesting about Bill's blog is the picture of recently captured terror cell members. See this picture of captured terrorists, one of them the leader of the cell. All with one exception look to be very young, so young I can easily picture teaching these guys in one of my classes. Al-Qaeda and the terrorists in Iraq are deep into their bench.
While we must be careful not to think simple body count tallies indicate progress, we must understand a dead terrorist can not teach new terrorists, and the school of hard knocks for terrorists is very hard indeed.
Patience, fortitude, and determination fellow Westerners.
