Long War Gen

A Long War

Gen. Rick Sanchez warned Americans Thursday that they were in for “a long war” against terrorism in Iraq. Underlining his words, a firefight that lasted more than an hour broke out between guerrillas and US troops in Khalidiya, 30 km west of Falluja, that left several troops killed and wounded, according to eyewitnesses quoted by Agence France Presse. After US vehicles were torched, local crowds chanted pro-Saddam slogans.
