Quote of the day

"GEN. KIMMITT: I don't have the casualty figures for Najaf and Karbala. They're quite shocking because they're so disproportionate, and if I had those numbers, I would tell you that the numbers would be somewhere on the order of 50 to 100 casualties taken by Muqtada's militia to every one taken by the coalition. And it kind of is sad to see a militia like that, so poorly led by a thug like Muqtada that he would allow those young men to fight against an Army as disciplined, as well led, as well trained, as well equipped as the coalition forces, only to see them fight to their death for no reason at all."
