A Plan To Kill

Mike Totten has a new piece up from his stay in Fallujah and is great reading as always with lots of pictures. Hit his tip jar if you are able.

A sign on the door leading out of India Company’s Combat Operations Center says “Have a Plan to Kill Everyone You Meet.” For a fraction of second I thought it might be some kind of joke. But I was with the Marine Corps in Fallujah, and it wasn’t a joke.

I asked Captain Stewart Glenn if he could explain and perhaps elaborate a bit on what, exactly, that sign is about. “It’s pretty straightforward,” he said rather bluntly. “It means exactly what it says.”

Don't let the lede fool you, it is about how peaceful it is and how the Marines and ISF can't get complacent. Quite a contrast to the now infamous battles for Fallujah that Mike Yon covered so well.
