SHOOTOUT: Battlecry Iraq - Ramadi
They’re cold-blooded killers and they’re not particularly selective about their victims, coalition troops, international journalists, innocent Iraqi civilians, just about anyone in Iraq will do, as long as the death causes despair and disruption.

In the south, militant cleric Muqtada al-Sadr unleashes his militia on U.S. Marines policing Najaf. The two forces battle hand-to-hand in a 1,000-year-old cemetery.
In central Iraq, a skilled insurgent mortar team tries to disrupt national elections by targeting polling places in and around Fallujah.
Marine reconnaissance squads quietly hunt the mortarmen and kill them one-by-one.
In the northern city of Mosul, Uday and Qusay Hussein, the sons of Saddam, help plan and fund insurgent training and operations.
