I'll assume you'd be lying if you produce proof to counter first hand accounts like this:

"After only 48 hours of fighting, the battalion had succeeded in killing between 100 and 200 of the terrorists, leveled a portion of southern Fallujah and in the words of our Regimental Commander "broke the back" of the resistance in Fallujah.

to what is now known as the Fallujah Brigade. Throughout those intense days, the battalion performed magnificently and earned a very key place in the history of the Regiment's history."

Nothing about "insurgents" or rebels or disaffected Iraqi citizens there I noticed.

I'm also reading a book called "Boots On The Ground" by Karl Zinmeister. I'm sure I'll have plenty more for you.
