Looks like the 6th Marines are gearing up for a "announced" media covered assualt on the Taliban in Marjah. Nothing like CNN and the Media, probably Obamas idea to show the world hes tough. Kinda doesnt make since to announce it to the world....I understand the logic some what...but then again...you lost the element of surprise....and you know all of those leaving the city are probably taliban hiding in the crowds.

I've never benn a fan of media with combat troops in combat. S@#t happens and then some bleeding damn heart wants to critique there actions and decisions from his bean bag next to the refrigerator. When it's time for killin' it ain't time to be second guessing your decision because you are afraid of civilian prosecution.
