The Secret of Our Success

Marines seem to be taking Fallujah back from the enemy with the kind of inevitability that you'd expect given the difference between the capabilities of these two military forces. Why is this battle going better than the last failed attempt to take the city, which ended in a demoralizing retreat? The press is burying the essential point deep in their reports, shown here with emphasis added:

"U.S. Marines called in an airstrike, and an F-18 dropped a 500-pound bomb on the mosque, destroying both minarets."

Translation: the Marines aren't providing the enemy with sanctuary this time. Thank Allah.
