Organized Resistance in Iraq Says

Organized Resistance in Iraq

Says Don Rumsfeld in a WaPo story. Elsewhere in the WaPo, a more complete take on the current state of Iraqi resistance. But is it tantamount to a guerilla movement? Let's see how the arrival of 4,000 reinforcements in the more sensitive areas plays out over the next few weeks before describing the violence of Saddam loyalists as constitutive of a guerilla movement.

"The persistence and evolution of tactics is giving the violence the appearance of a guerrilla movement. In the last two weeks, eight U.S. soldiers have been killed and another 25 wounded, according to Pentagon announcements and news reports. The numbers of Iraqis killed, wounded or apprehended number in the dozens....The hostility to U.S. forces appears to be most intense in a region west and north of Baghdad dominated by Sunni Muslims who were at the core of the Baath Party and Hussein's government. Cities such as Baqubah, Samarra, Habaniyah, Khaldiya, Fallujah and Tikrit, Saddam Hussein's home town, have been particularly dangerous for U.S. troops."

Here's a little good news from Iraq too.
