3. I guess they don't want us there.
This is a very bad omen for the future. God be with the soldiers.

7. I just saw this too
my heart goes out to the servicemen and women and their families.
How the hell did they get close enough to a 'fixed position' of ours? And please tell me a 'fixed position' doesnt mean a military base

10. I'm used to seeing "fixed position" mean something like a bunker
Whether that's a bunker on the outskirts of a permanent base, inside the green zone, or far off in the boondocks, I have no idea... watching this space intently...

11. i am a bit surprised at the coverage.
who would have thought that they would even mention this when there is probably a katie couric story they can cover?

Seems more like a broken position, if you think about it.

There are three people primarily at fault here. George, Dick and Don.

war criminals with blood on their hands

14. All you had to hear was the letter Guy James read on his show
yesterday from a soldier trapped in Iraq for three years, and you would easily understand how this happened.

15. It's just stupid to keep our people there.
No army to face so to speak, just dangers that broadside you like this. What are we accomplishing?

16. Memo to "failed insurgency": Stop it! You've been defeated.
I guess those guys didn't get the previous memo about "Mission Accomplished".
