comment How Did Modern Weapons Change the Dynamics of City Fighting?
As a side note, @Canageek comments reads to me a little patronising. I do apologies if my reply reads as acerbic. It is not meant to offend or inflame or annoy or anything negative whatsoever. If it reads that way, I can only apologies as I did not mean it to sound bad.

@Canageek: Please do not make assumption about what I know and where I get my information from. I am familiar with Al Qaeda's history, operations, and philosophical background. The BBC can be as biased as the US media. The best source on Al Qaeda is Al Qaeda itself. Plenty of its manuals and discourse are translated into English and available on line (or in print). For sure, Al Qaeda had no love for the Iraqi regime nor for the shiite. Whatever its reasons, it did not care about the battle of Baghdad which was the only point I was making.

comment How Did Modern Weapons Change the Dynamics of City Fighting?
@Canageek: This is kinda my point. They were (or wanted to be) in Iraq to fight the USA but Baghdad was not a strategic place for them at that time. I could have said "Was it seen as a strategic goal by the Taliban? No" and would have been just as right. My point was about overall strategies not specific factions -- although Al Qaeda is more relevant than the Taliban.

comment How Did Modern Weapons Change the Dynamics of City Fighting?
The Warsaw uprising battle was successful to the Nazi (they defeated it, killed lots of Poles and razed the city to the ground) and the Soviets (they could take control of Poland unopposed by that government in exile and make it a satellite state). However, the Poles can claim a feat of endurance to resist for as long as they did with no support, no logistics, and few men.

comment What Are the Dynamics of A “Forced March?”
The strategic advantages may rule the day here coupled with good or available supply at the end of the march. If the forced march gives one side an major advantage in either then it is worth doing. Otherwise, not so much. Ultimately, it is all about winning the war not a battle.
