Cusp of Fallujah Assault

We are in final preparations for a large scale assault on Fallujah. Kofi Annan has come out strongly against it, warning in a letter that an assault risks "alienating Iraqis when their support for elections was vital." Iyad Allawi rejected Annan's contentions and "US officials were outraged by Mr Annan's letter, which highlights the divisions over the way to achieve peace in Iraq." Sheikh Mohammed Bashar al-Faidhi, of the Association of Muslim Clerics, said: "If the US invades the city of Falluja or any other city in Iraq, all the [Sunni Arab] clerics in Iraq will call for a boycott of the election." Interim Iraq President Ghazi Yawer opposes a "military solution" to the Fallujah situation.

American troops are awaiting the go ahead from Allawi.
