Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007

Michael Yon – Be Not Afraid – Embeded in Iraq

here is a portion from Michael Yon’s latest work/writings.

At least part of the reason we are not seeing even wider-spread open-necked reprisals for the recent bombings (though the reprisals have been serious) is because our current leadership under Petraeus is adroitly pushing political buttons behind the curtains. Based on things I saw, heard, and even videotaped while out among Iraqi tribal leaders in Anbar, unseen hands are reaching out and finding peace with tribes where others found war. Based on what I see all around Iraq, and not just in Anbar, I believe intuitively that most of this war can be ended through smart politics.

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.

    I love, love, love waking up in the morning and reading your blogs!!!! I am so sick of all the negative media spin on Iraq … and BTW, not that I have to tell you this, but everybody has something to say and those who talk the most have NO first hand experience nor know of ANYONE who has sacrificed their time, and is brave enough to fight for us, who obviously have first hand knowledge!!!! Being a mom is a wonderful thing, or maybe it is simply a “woman” thing, but we have that Mommy intuition, that gut feeling, that “what is your tummy telling you” syndrome, and from day one, I have always FELT this was a mission that MUST be done, and FINISHED, SUCCESSFLLY!! And, despite all, and I mean ALL, of the media and Hollywood “mo’s” negative comments, I have a cousin in Iraq currently on hie third tour and he truly feels there can be success in Iraq for many of the same reason mentioned above, but is much more out spoken about WMD’s….I’ll tell you his story another time! I also spoke with Sgt. Freeman (he came into my son’s class yesterday, he is Daddy to one of Jake’s classmates, and because Jake and I are such staunch supporters of our troops, I snuck in to hear what he had to say)…most, obviously, was how happy he was to be home, and more was about the education in Iraq, he brought in pictures of kids their age (8-9), money, the fluffy stuff, you know? Anyway, when he was leaving we got a chance to talk and he said after this most recent tour (his 2nd that lasted 2 and 1/2 years) he truly feels that because Iraqi’s are very religious that if approached properly, politics will work and Iraq will be a success. We NEED you guys to keep us posted with the TRUTH! And not what we are told to believe….keep it up my friend! BTW…been kinda under the weather, in a good way however….catch my drift??? Keep me/us in your thoughts and prayers! I need all of prayers, well wishes, “white-light” that I can, we can get! Again, your like one of maybe two other blogs that wake my butt up in the morning and I truly appreciate them! Stay well friend! ~jo
