Taking the Hospital in Fallujah

What ever the tactical reasons for taking the hospital it also has to have a strategic value as well.

The insurgents have no safe place to to take their wounded for refuge. No place to store the bodies of their dead. This has to take a toll on morale.

The insurgents may have to kill their own wounded for security/mobility reasons. This cannot be a morale booster either.

Any one taken to the hospital now will cost the insurgents irreplaceable manpower. Both the wounded and the stretcher bearers
