Meanwhile in Fallujah

raq’s prime minister on Monday urged residents and tribes of Fallujah to “expel” al-Qaida militants from this western city to avoid an all-out battle — remarks that may signal an imminent military move to retake the former insurgent stronghold.

Nouri al-Maliki’s message came as dozens of families were fleeing from Fallujah, 40 miles (65 kilometers) west of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, in fear of a major showdown.

Iraqi government troops have surrounded the city, which lies in the western Sunni-dominated Anbar province and which was overrun by al-Qaida fighters last week.

Guess not.
