Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007
I will touch a little on this for now and update it more later. I only have about 15 minutes so here goes:
I believe the best thing Bush can do to raise some support for Iraq and aweness amoung America is to:
Have a bunch of experts (from – Iraq, America, Britian, Euorpe, etc… those involved in the reconstruction etc etc.) He should appear on the TV and give a short talk about the problems with the lack of an informed public and lay into the Media who only shows one side of the story. Then he should allow the above mentioned experts on the ground in Iraq to talk about what so many people don’t know ” the facts”
Here is the comment i wrote about congress on “Mab’s Blog” entry about congress’s latest blunder:
“What I wonder is how did a timeline even pass congress? Do they really believe we are losing the war? Do they want us to give our soldiers rocks instead of ammo and tie-dye T-shirts instead of body armor.
We need to support our troops more then ever. From the changes in Iraq now more then ever we have a chance. I have many Iraqi, Iranian, Afghan, Canadian, USA, and others around the would in my group now and from listening to them on the ground in Iraq things have never looked so promising. See my latest blog entry and comment has another source (from an Arab Blog) both are very good sources on this info besides my friends in various parts of Iraq. So only conclusion I have is Gongress watches to much Fox TV, or they are afraid if the effents in Iraq get better the Democrates will then look bad?, or they only want to vote against the war because they feel that voting the way their uninformed general public see the war is the only way to keep their public opinion up? Whatever it is they are shotting themselves in the foot and will end up facing the reaper one way or another. “
