According to the Associated Press, among the weaponry currently arrayed around Fallujah is an AC-130 gunship.

bq. The side-firing weapons array consists of one 25mm GAU-12 Gatling gun (firing 1,800 rounds per minute), one 40mm L60 Bofors cannon (with a selectable firing rate of single shot or 120 rounds per minute) and one 105mm M-102 Howitzer cannon (firing 6 to 10 rounds per minute).

Yeah, don’t you think that may be overkill?
