What do these cities have in common?

Mosul, Samarra, Baghdad, Ramadi, Kirkuk

They are cities specifically identified in today's New York Times ( where violence has increased during our attack on Fallujah. According to the Times:

"The American military reported 130 attacks on Monday, well above the average of 80 a day over most of the summer."

So what we've done is displaced the violence, not ended or contained it. What a surprise.

And when the non-combatants return to Fallujah, and find their homes and places of work destroyed, how graeful will they feel? Are we solving a problem, or helping the problem grow?
