BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - U.S. and Iraqi troops recaptured police stations and secured bridges in the northern city of Mosul on Tuesday in an offensive aimed at pushing out fighters supporting the insurgent stronghold of Fallujah. Troops met "very little resistance" in securing several of the dozen or so police stations that had been captured by insurgents, the U.S. military command said. Nineveh province's deputy governor said militants blew up the Zuhour police station ahead of the U.S. advance, but the U.S military denied any stations were destroyed.

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - A suicide car bomber blasted an American convoy north of Baghdad and U.S. troops battled insurgents west of the capital Wednesday as a wave of violence across Iraq's Sunni Muslim heartland killed at least 27 people. American forces pursued their search-and-destroy mission against the remaining holdouts in the former insurgent bastion of Fallujah, and to the north, American forces pressed an offensive to reclaim part of the city of Mosul from militants. November became one of Iraq's bloodiest months as the U.S. death toll in the war in Iraq reached 1,206 with new Defense Department identifications Tuesday night and Wednesday, according to an Associated Press tally.

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Some 5,000 U.S. Marines, British troops and Iraqi forces launched a new offensive Tuesday aimed at clearing a swath of insurgent hotbeds across a cluster of dusty, small towns south of Baghdad. The series of raids and house searches was the third large-scale military operation this month aimed at suppressing Iraq's Sunni Muslim insurgency ahead of crucial elections set for Jan. 30. The assault aims to stem an increase of violence in an area that has been notorious for months as a danger zone.

On Nov. 10, the United States Marine Corps will be 229 years old, and every current and former marine will raise a glass or canteen to toast the founding of our corps. Some may think it appropriate that the Marines were born in a bar, Tun Tavern in Philadelphia to be precise. Since that day in 1775, they have served in every clime and place with distinction and success. They are, to this day, the only amphibious force in the world to have never been thrown off a beachhead. If you see the U.S. Marines forming up off your coast, you know they are coming for business and will not leave until the mission is accomplished.
