"Stunning" arms haul in Falluja


'Stunning' arms haul in Falluja


Thursday, 25 November, 2004, 15:55 GMT BBC.CO.UK

There was an assault launched upon Falluja, launched the week after the U.S. Presidential Election (convenient, that). The assault was intended to route out "insurgents" who are resisting the occupation of Iraq.

There are many reports, such as this, of weapons cache's found by the soldiers "clearing" Falluja. It shouldn't be surprising that these weapons are being found. The insurgents have obviously been getting their weapons from somewhere, and there is the little matter of rampant looting of the Iraqi army weaponry shortly after the invasion of Iraq. Though for some reason the news articles come across as if this is shocking and unexpected.
