The Counterinsurgency Business

The excellent Michael Yon has another must-read from Iraq, or at least the first part of what promises to be four must-read parts of a series. Yon shows a real understanding of what makes the Iraqs tick. Key lines:

The sheiks of Anbar turned against al Qaeda because the sheiks are businessmen, and al Qaeda is bad for business. But they didn’t suddenly trust Americans just because they no longer trusted al Qaeda. They are not suddenly blood allies. This is business, and that’s fine, because if there is one thing America is good at, it’s business.

Read the whole thing… and look forward to the next three parts.
