Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007

M. Yon – Arrowhead Ripper: Surrender or Die

Here is a section from Michael Yons latest Article – Arrowhead Ripper: Surrender or Die. He is embeded with Stryker Brigade Combat Team

“The combat in Baqubah should soon reach a peak. Al Qaeda seems to have been effectively isolated. The initial attack on 19 June achieved enough surprise that al Qaeda was caught off guard and trapped. They have been beaten back mostly into pockets and are surrounded and will be dealt with. Part of this is actually due to the capability of Strykers. We were able to “attack from the march.” In other words, a huge force drove in from places like Baghdad and quickly locked down Baqubah.” section from latest article by Michael Yon.

For those who don’t know there is two MAJOR operations going on in Iraq at the moment. The previous surge has been small steps. These two will prove to be major steps. These areas are lawless or have been for a while. That is about to end. It is clear that this is another city that has bad management. Michael compared the local problem in Baqubahis to Kurdish Areas. he is correct it is a big defference from what we see in Kurdish areas. If this was in the Kurdish area we would not have to help except maybe supplies.

But the battle for the minds is still a big problem. Ask people if they think 9/11 was a conspiracy. I started to and was amazed how many said yes, and some were way into it. But I think I got a few rethinking things…wink. Sorry about bring up the 9/11 thing but we need to educate our friends and families. We can’t afford the propaganda to spread further.

Mr. Yon doesn’t have too much good to say about the Iraqi commanders. But I think they will do better once they have more experience.

Best Wishes to ya all,

Ian Bach


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.
