Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007

Excellent Articles from young princeton ROTC student in Iraq

I just finished reading an Arab Blog I try and visit often, since he finds such unique sources of information in Iraq and always has an intelligent take / brief on the Links he posts on his Blog.

Like Abu Muqawama I was blown away when I saw the 19 year old journalists picture, he looks very young but his writting speaks volumes and you can sense the interest and excitment this young man is enjoying on his quest for knowledge and information on Iraq. I highly recommend Mr. Wesley Morgans Blog. it is very detailed and you feel like you are walking with him, and feel, every step he takes. – Ian Bach

This entry LINK below caught my eye at Wes’s Blog, and I hope you find the people he met as interesting as I do.

July 31-August 5: Meeting People


Abu Muqawama

Oh my goodness, check out this kid’s blog. This kid is a student at Princeton University and is, incredibly, spending the summer shadowing David Petraeus around Iraq. Abu Muqawama saw this picture of the kid and almost lost it — Jeez, he looks about twelve. Having said that, he’s a pretty good writer, and Abu Muqawama has been enjoying his long dispatches. Only one question: out of all the journalists in the world who would love the chance to follow David Petraeus around Iraq (Abu Muqawama included), he chooses a reporter for the Daily freaking Princetonian? Abu Muqawama is a graduate of this university, so perhaps he’s taking it too hard.


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.

    Many of his dispatches he talks about other very interesting journalist within Iraq, many of them are his heros in journalism. It is a truck load / laundry list of information if you get into it and look up the people he talks about. Many of the journalists seem very intelligent and very interesting.

    It’s a small world. Yup I know Abu Muqawama (where I stumbled onto the info about Wes’s Blog) actively reads and has links to small Wars Journal also it is linked at Le Monde, which has excellent french para military view of war, with the French-Algiers outlook on war. (It’s nice to know not all French a wimps…)

    I think Gaurdian also may have Small Wars Journal link as well.
