Fallujah Surprise?

Maybe I am missing something!

We are surrounding the city of Fallujah.......bent on destruction of the terrorists/insurgents/bad guys (take your pick) therein.....

Now bombs explode in a "safe city".....

We are, it seems to me....and I am not a military tactician....fighting a traditional war with fronts, etc. against an enemy that just is rag-tag and capable of sliding one way and another always just ahead of our signaled-in-advance moves. We take two-three weeks to encircle and close off the city to attack....meanwhile the insurgents send a few hit men off to another city to provide diversion.

We gotta make better use of our special ops folks, folks!
