"Basically there's a lot of stuff blowing up right now."

My favorite quote from the Batttle of Fallujah so far:

"Basically there's a lot of stuff blowing up right now," said Lt. Todd Hildebrant, 28, of Grafton, Mass., who was one of several soldiers from Task Force 2-2 of the Army's 1st Infantry Division watching the fireworks from their operations center outside the city.

Military commanders said the advance from the north was intended to surprise the insurgents, who they believe were expecting an assault from the west, a relatively quiet part of the city that U.S. forces easily took on Sunday night.
