Destroying the city in order to save it 

Well, maybe it will work the second time:

"It's going to be difficult putting Fallujah together again, but not impossible," said [Staff Sgt. Alexandros] Pashos. "That is the saddest, to have it all come to this, all these people's homes destroyed."

But even before air and ground assault, Fallujah was poor by the Marines' standards, with many of its people living in mud-brick homes in tight, crowded neighborhoods.

"After we rebuild Fallujah, it will be a lot better place to live," said [Lance Cpl. Brian] Wyer, the Oklahoman, "something that was worth our sacrifice."
