Marines make their point

Strategy Page:

"The Marines have made their point in the Sunni Triangle ('don't mess with the Marines') and are now patrolling frequently and getting a friendly response from Sunni Arabs. The anti-government Sunnis, who thought the Marines might be an easier mark than the paratroopers they replaced, are now laying low and rethinking their tactics. Four days of fighting in Fallujah left dozens of anti-government Iraqis dead and many more wary of shooting it out with marines. The marines are out making contacts and collecting information so they can make raids on the anti-government forces. This worked for the paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne division, but the marines plan to try a tactic of working harder to establish contacts with less hostile Sunni Arab groups."
