Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007
If violence in Iraq drops and CNN is not around to report it; does that mean that violence is not down?
Mass Media is starting to act like seeing signs of success in Iraq is like seeing Bigfoot. Mass Media may not believe what they are seeing but it is starting to become harder to deny.
Many people have heard about the Anbar awakening. That was when we first saw a large population stand up against al Qaeda and oust them from their neighborhoods. Well now I have heard from a few people who are reluctant to believe or maybe just baffled that we haven’t seen much on the News about how different Iraq is now as opposed to a couple months ago.
The fact is all over Iraq al Qaeda is on the run. But more signifficant is the reduction in military deaths, secterian violence, and suicide bombings.
Michael Yon has been reporting from the front lines in Iraq and has a good insight of the significant progress within the past couuple months. I hope you share this information with your friends. Thanks and best Wishes, – Ian Bach
