There is "liberation" and then there is "double liberation". I heard Don Rumsfeld yesterday refer to the recent destruction of Fallujah as "the liberation" of Fallujah. But I thought that Iraq as a whole was "liberated" when US invaded the country, and broguht down Saddam's regime. And when you "liberate" the whole you "liberate" the part. So if Iraq was liberated, so was Fallujah. But I guess some towns and cities need to be "liberated" more than once.
