US Backs Off in Fallujah

The US is issuing this face-saving statement:

The US-led coalition in Iraq has announced measures to end the military stand-off in the battle-scarred city of Falluja, west of Baghdad.

These include shortening the curfew and allowing unfettered humanitarian access to the people of Falluja.

Then they say they want the fighters in Fallujah to turn in their weapons. I’m sure they’ll get massive compliance on that one.
