Our Guys Want to Kill Them, and That's the Plan.

If you really want to know what's going on in Iraq, GO READ THIS. It's from Michael Yon.

Our guys are tough. The enemy in Baqubah is as good as any in Iraq, and better than most. That’s saying a lot. But our guys have been systematically trapping them, and have foiled some big traps set for our guys. I don’t want to say much more about that, but our guys are seriously outsmarting them. Big fights are ahead and we will take serious losses probably, but al Qaeda, unless they find a way to escape, are about to be slaughtered. Nobody is dropping leaflets asking them to surrender. Our guys want to kill them, and that’s the plan.
Bookmark his site and check it every day. Go back and read what he wrote yesterday and the day before that and before that. He is in the thick of it in Baqubah. If you REALLY want to know, go. Read.

And just so you know: Michael Yon does not receive funding or financial support from Fox News, movie, book or television deals at this time. He is entirely reader supported. He relies on his readers to help him replace his equipment and cover his expenses so that he may remain in Iraq and bring you the stories of our soldiers. If you value his work, please consider supporting his mission. I do.
Michael Yon's regular address is: P. O. Box 416, Westport Pt MA 02791

Well, I hope our guys kick some serious butt... It's about time we stopped trying to make nice with AQI and others who are instigating and prolonging the violence. Let's go hard and then let's go home.

Been reading him for a while. Some of us are trying to get a snail mail address rather then paypal. There was one listed in his comment section by someone, but the zip code was incomplete. If you should get such an address, maybe you could include it in your site.
I've been a nurse for many years and find the info on TBI and diagnostic BS involved appalling. These men and women deserve so much better. All the best to you,

Most people do not know that this operation is one of the most intense since major combat operations. General Petraeus is not wasting time and it appears that things may be changing more rapidly than is being reported. I love the part about no one is dropping leaflets asking them to surrender. The plan is to kill them and it appears to be working extremely well. I can't wait to read the next dispatch.

My Son just returned from Baqubah. While he was there he downplayed the action for the sake of his Mom, but now I know the truth of what was going on in that "hotspot" of Iraq. I'm glad we are finally cleaning house there. God bless our troops!

Thank goodness for Michael Yon and his reporting ~ and Bill Roggio.
I wonder if Harry Reid reads Yon...doubt it. I'm sure he doesn't even know he exists.

God bless our troops! Go get 'em!

Thanks for the address "Mom"!
Let's all hope and pray that when able to use their skills and training, out troops will clean house. Keeping all of them in our prayers.
