http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2010/06/michael-yons-war/57483/ From the newest "The Atlantic". For those of you not familiar with this guy- Michael Yon writes a fairly well respected blog on military affairs from where we are engaged. Yon's been pretty strident over the years about failures and successes in Iraq and Afghanistan- recently was kicked out of Afghanistan. He's got a lot to say- I'm not in a position to say whether they are all 100% gospel- I typically don't trust people who see things as "my way or the highway". However there is no denying that much of his analysis in the past has been pretty much on target. He certainly doesn't pull any punches and has become no fan of Gen McChrystal. You can find Yon's blog on facebook if interested.
