In Fallujah, combined marine/Iraqi patrols have entered the city. So far, there has not been much resistance. But the marines know the heavily armed gangs are still there, and will have to be dealt with.
Shia resistance to the al Sadr militias is growing and becoming more public. There have been public demonstrations outside buildings occupied by al Sadr gunmen, asking them to cease their militant actions. Most Shia Arabs consider al Sadr to be a Saddam wannabe and want no part of him. Al Sadr has publicly ordered his gunmen to attack coalition troops, but attacks are haphazard and inept. American and British troops have continued to arrest or kill al Sadr gunmen, and eject them from government buildings they have been occupying. Over a hundred al Sadr gunmen have been killed in the last week as a result, and several hundred others arrested or simply disarmed.
