Words from the front, and America's COIN co-author
Not much time to play around on here these days, as devoting more time actually preparing for Iraq means less time writing about it. In an effort to stay current, here's an essay on the dangers of early withdrawal by an officer who co-wrote the Army and Marine Corps' new counterinsurgency manual. Also, Michael Yon, independent embedded reporter, has moved from Diyala to Anbar and started a new series on the struggles and successes of Marines in that province: part I, part II, and part III. Good stuff which you'd never hear otherwise.
