Suffering in Anbar Province

From Holden:

That’s what our men and women are doing. The fighting in this portion of the Suni triangle has been relentless and deadly:

Iraq’s western Anbar province remains the most deadly place for U.S. forces in the country, with at least 21 Marines killed in hostilities there since the handover of authority to an interim Iraqi government, according to U.S. military figures.

To make matters worse, the supply situation is getting desperate as Turks, Filipinos, and Indians refuse to haul their trucks in from Kuwait:

Iraqi sources said U.S. combat units outside of Baghdad have experienced a slowdown in shipments of food, water and supplies over the past few days. The sources said the units most affected have been in the Sunni Triangle and Anbar province near the Syrian border.
