Boston Globe : Returning Fallujans Will Face Clampdown / News / World / Returning Fallujans will face clampdown:

"Iraq is better off without Saddam." We promised them greater civil liberty. We're giving them "a police state." And if "coalition" forces manage to keep Falluja out of bounds to insurgents, is it unlikely to expect they'll pick another center of operations? Without a doubling of forces in Iraq (and, consequently, a draft), how many cities can we contain?

An excerpt:

"The US military is drawing up plans to keep insurgents from regaining control of this battle-scarred city, but returning residents may find that the measures make Fallujah look more like a police state than the democracy they have been promised."
