‘They Came Here to Die’

The Washington Post provides a gripping account of US Marines fighting insurgents in Western Iraq. “They came here to die,” said Gunnery Sgt. Chuck Hurley, commander of the team from the 1st Platoon, Lima Company, of the Marines’ 3rd Battalion, 25th Regiment.

The article fails to mention any effect of the action on the local civilian population.
