"This is another Hue city in the making"

Confident, then...

(Hue was captured by the North Vietnamese in the Tet Offensive of 1968. It was recaptured with the loss of 482 men on the US side and 7,500 NVA/Vietcong. Although regarded as a military victory, it turned the tide of US public opinion against the war and set the stage for eventual US defeat).

But you knew that.

(quote by Sgt Maj Carlton W Kent, the senior enlisted marine in Iraq)
