This is simular to what I've been hearing for a couple of months.

"Fatigue could come," Blount, the division commander, said in an interview. "They are getting tired. But morale is still pretty good."

I don't see how it couldn't be frustrating at this point. I'd assume that is part of the job. Its not going to be a cake walk.

Everyone forgets that fact that the ones resisting had a real good life under saddam. They enforced his iron fist in these cities. They want Saddam (or someone who resembles him) back in power and the only way to effectively do that is to harass U.S. troops. If you inflict enough casualties and turn the tide of public opinion, that is half the battle for them.
