Moment of Truth in Iraq

Nobody has reported on the Iraq war with more authority than Michael Yon.

He recently wrote:

"There’s only a small group of writers who honestly spend enough time in Iraq to make serious claims based on firsthand accounts. But I’ve seen the Iraqi Army with my own eyes. I’ve done many missions in 2005 and 2007, in many places in Iraq, along with the Iraqi Army: please believe me when I say that, on the whole, the Iraqi Army is remarkably better in 2007 and far more effective than it was in 2005. By 2007, the Iraqis were doing most of the fighting. And . . . this is very important . . . they see our Army and Marines as serious allies, and in many cases as friends. Please let the potential implications of that sink in."

Now there's a novel idea... An educated point of view from a reasonable person. Here's a guy who knows what he's talking about, applies common sense to what he sees and then reports from a truly unbiased point of view. The next 5 years should be interesting.
