Comparing it to Somalia is erroneous at best.

From CNN:

They tell of coming under fire from soldiers on rooftops near Nasiriya as their vehicles were hit by rocket-propelled grenades and some weapons were clogged with sand.

Sounds like urban/desert combat to me. What did the analysts think was going on over there? A giant, ratings boosting media event?

Bruckheimer is itching to get the rights to this. Hack.
