A New Plan!!!
Those inventive military types have come up with a new plan to secure a part of Iraq:
The Times' Dexter Filkins again writes from the mostly insurgent-controlled town of Ramadi where he's holed up with Marines, who've come up with a new plan: "They are planning to bulldoze about three blocks in the middle of the city, part of which has been reduced to ruins by the fighting, and convert them into a Green Zone." Explained one Marine commander, "We'll turn it into a park."
Un huh.

There's a wonderful idea. Let's clear cut the city so there's no where to hide! Let's turn all of Iraq into an uninhabitable park! They could even put landmines in the park to make sure no insurgents try and use it for, like, meetings or hiding places!
