As captioned by the AP: “U.S. Marines of the 1st Division pass by dead bodies in the western part of Fallujah, Iraq, Sunday, Nov. 14, 2004.”
From Several Insurgent Bases Found in Falluja, U.S. General Says, the New York Times, November 18, 2004:
The American death toll from the Falluja operation, which began Nov. 7, now stands at 51, with 425 wounded, General Sattler said, although an unspecified number of the wounded have returned to duty. Eight Iraqi soldiers have died and 43 were wounded, he added.
From 25 to 30 Iraqi civilians were treated for wounds, but there have been no reported Iraqi civilian deaths yet, the general said.

life is so much simpler when everyone is an insurgent!
If you’re dead you’re by definition an insurgent, because this is a casualty-free zone. “No civilians were harmed in the making of this war.”
eh…we did this in Vietnam, too…nothing to see here, move along…

Do insurgents normally wear slippers and a bathrobe into combat?
