U.S. Marines in Battle of Fallujah – Urban Combat Footage | Iraq War




The First Battle of Fallujah, also known as Operation Vigilant Resolve, was an operation to root out extremist elements of Fallujah and an act of retaliation to, as well as an attempt to apprehend the perpetrators of, the killing of four U.S. contractors in April 2004.
The chief catalyst for the operation was the highly publicized killing and mutilation of four Blackwater USA private military contractors,and the killings of five American soldiers in Habbaniyah a few days earlier.
The battle polarized public opinion within Iraq.
The Second Battle of Fallujah—code-named Operation Al-Fajr and Operation Phantom Fury—was a joint American, Iraqi, and British offensive in November and December 2004, considered the highest point of conflict in Fallujah during the Iraq War. It was led by the U.S. Marine Corps against the Iraqi insurgency stronghold in the city of Fallujah and was authorized by the U.S.-appointed Iraqi Interim Government. The U.S. military called it “some of the heaviest urban combat U.S. Marines have been involved in since the Battle of Huế City in Vietnam in 1968.

  1. Here we have the U.S. terrorist forces invading and murdering the native population of Iraq. If you supported this war, you are need to unplug from the matrix. If you followed your leader to this war, you are a sheep.

  2. Just imagine that in all of those homes a family sat down and ate together several months before. As the video portrays, someone random persons house is now a battleground. Imagine if that was your house being broke into by soldiers. All of your closets searched. A sniper operating out of your kids bed room.

  3. If one remembers history, Russian advisors hired by the DoD said that this could not be done….that this would be our "Stalingrad"….well, history again showed that they were wrong…MOUT training, although always costly, is not always successful…here, it was………………Semper Fi…………
