Iraqi Holy City Left Broken by Urban Warfare (washingtonpost.com): “‘We are destroying this city,’ a Marine officer said with a sigh at one point in the battle, described by some locals as a siege.

How the Arab world sees the damage is a question that field commanders said they had little time to ask themselves as they constantly changed battle plans. Several noted it was Sadr who brought the fight to the holy city, not them. “
