Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007

Michael Yon – Ethical Reporting from the Front Lines and making a difference!

The following two (2) quotes are from Mr. Michael Yon’s work featured on Fox News:
(Mr. Yon accepts no money from fox, he wishes to bring ethical reporting to the News)

“Our soldiers, meaning the soldiers from countries like the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Germany, yes France, and the United States, are better in all aspects but one: The terrorists somehow manage to beat us all in our respective Medias. We may own the air, but terrorists own the airwaves.”

“Today there are over fifty journalists here. We have an excellent new Commanding General, David Petraeus. A big plan is unfolding that will affect the lives of nearly every person reading this, and many more. Soon the weather will change as a long, hot, grinding, and sticky year begins, but most journalists will spend little time here. When the weather turns hot, most will go home.”

Here is a link to his latest article on his web site:


Michael Yon an Ex Special Force member and now a power in Ethical Reporting. He has a very good Web Blog and Magazine I would like to tell you about and hope you read and support his fresh approach to reporting on the War. He has made a difference and appeared on Fox News recently. The fact is we need regular people to see some real reporting and real News and not the hype we have become so use to. He has some heart warming pictures on his website of the happy faces of young children and other Iraq citizens eager to realize their freedom I vote we help them obtain this.

Here is a link to his web site:


Mr. Yon is now embedded in Iraq and reporting from the front lines. It is hard work and he can use our support. Being a journalist embedded with a Unit engaged in a war is not a fun life. He has left his family and friends to help the citizns of this world learn the truth. It took him 2 days to email a dozen photos, and he was moved from a trailer to a tent recently. He has some great photos on the Web Site and although he is not a photographer one of his pictures made big news and has helped him reach a wider audience. As he so well put it in one of his writings the news media today has been reporting a one sided view on this war. As he has said so well to his critics, there are War Profiteers but there are also “Peace Profiteers”. We have all seen the Medias reliance on making money off this War by reporting the bad things. Bad things make News organizations money, “Big money”. It has distorted the public view of reality and twist truths into lies. Many terrorist videos make it on television and this is wrong. Let’s all give this brave man three cheers and support his efforts.

If you have the means please donate to his web site. he does not get any money from the Fox Corp. He is doing this out of a frustration in the media today, and the lack of ethical reporting.

If you have a Blog, I hope you will include this info. We desperately need a change in reporting.

If you want to make a change please help. You can report suspect terrorist web sites to the web host such as Yahoo who responds fast to suspect terror sites. I have personally shut down many sites this way. I hope others will help report suspect terrorist or abusive sites, as I can not do it alone.

Also I would like to suggest sending soccer balls for the children in Iraq. Iraqis love soccer, this can help show them we care about them.

About Ian Bach

Independent Online Terrorist Hunter I teach people how to hunt down and shut down the Bad guys web sites. I also teach about the various countries and cultures. Like most cases it is a small group of bsd eggs that in this case call themselves Muslims but in actual fact they are more like how KKK call themselves ",True Christisians". But in both cases / groups they preach a perverted and twisted view a religion. In the case of ISIS, all Qaeda, al Nusra, and the rest of the terrorists who claim to be true Muslims most of these groups follow the Wahhabi teachings. They are almost all Sunni and their goal is global domination. Yet they must be very bad at math and history. Since most Muslims prefer a separation of church and state and also mist are against Shari's Law. Esp the twisted and overly exaggerated form of Sharia Law that the Wahhabi and other bad guys use. I have studied terrorism, insurgencies, and the best tried and proven methods that work to fight terrorism. My Blogs have many links and articles that can show you who are the best and most knowledgeable people in the fields or counterinsurgency and counter terrorism. When I find great practitioner's I always listen to them to find out who they learned from and who they respect and admire. Thus I am always learning new stuff from the best and most successful in their fields of knoeledge. I strive to be an open and ethical source of information, I have met many awesome, kind, caring, and loving wonderful people many who I am close friends with now from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Iran, and many from S.E. Asia which also has a high percent of their populations that are Muslim.We must always strive to be aware people are not any one particular religion via that's what they chose to be, instead most people are a particular religion because that's what their parents and/or county is. I was raised Catholic but because I became Interested in magic ,(illusion - smoke n mirrors) and science which lead me to study many religions, and I would call myself an atheist. Yet sometimes when I lose my keys ZI find myself praying "Hail Marys" and a few "Our Fathers" which most always aides me in finding my keys. My belief is that if I just frantically look around for my krys, good luck it takes me for ever. But by saying these prayers it is like s sort of meditation and my mind becomes more calm, which is why it helps my find my keys.
