#4 These people need to learn fast - if they dont respond to the tougher US rules of engagement, the next step will likely be to unleash the Peshmerga and the Shiite militias on them. THAT wont be pretty.

#7 Lots of checkpoints. Intrusive body checks. Physical barriers and helicopter strikes on bad guys in vehicles. Just like what works in Gaza.

#8 You go out one morning with 400 tanks and other armored vehicles. You surround Fallujah completely, with 6-7000 infantrymen backing up the tanks. You start a house-by-house search, making sure every human being and as many belongings as they can carry are taken out, marched beyond the perimeter, and made to kneel in the sand. Then you totally destroy their city. Bomb it into dust, and then blow away the dust. MAKE THEM WATCH. Then have one person walk out to them and tell them, "next time, we'll do it with you still there". You may still have problems, but they won't be from Fallujah.
