Barry’s take

Posted by lex, on December 20, 2007

A little something for everyone in retired army general Barry McCAffrey’s AAR on Iraq, as hosted by Michael Yon.

Reader’s Digest version:

  1. Violence is way down. Stopping asking if it’s really true and start asking why.
  2. AQI is badly beaten but Simply. Won’t. Die. Except when we kill them. Which is lots.
  3. IA are actually surprisingly good and the IP are getting better.
  4. The central government is teh suxXor.
  5. The people are miserable, but the economy is improving.
  6. There are endemic problems that only the Iraqis will be able to solve.
  7. They’ll still need our help.
  8. Rummy was teh suxXor too but Gates Rulez!
  9. Army needs more sojers. To help us bring them home.
  10. This might actually work.
  11. On the other hand, it might not.
