NYT: With Airpower and Armor, Troops Enter Rebel-Held City: >"Amid the blasts and roar of the battle, loudspeakers at mosques throughout the city were blaring, "Prepare for jihad!" and "God is great!". American commanders appeared to avoid striking the mosques."

(Via The Belmont Club.)

I wonder why they don't have a sniper take out the loudspeakers? Would at least make the invasion a bit less annoying for our guys. :)
