Population of Mosul: 1.7 million.

 

Population of Falluja: 350,000

 

Insurgents have taken charge of some areas of south and western Mosul, holding two police stations and manning road blocks, as Iraq's third largest city appeared to slide out of US and Iraqi control.

 

Residents in neighbourhoods throughout the city on the Tigris river, 390 kilometres north of Baghdad, said there was little visible presence of Iraqi security forces or US troops on Saturday. They said armed gunmen held some areas.

This reminds me of those toys that little children play with where you push down on one part and another part pops up. Or the Bugs Bunny cartoons where Elmer Fudd fires his gun at Bugs in one rabbit hole and Bugs pops up in another, laughing at poor old Elmer. Life imitating art?x(
