A few Michael Yon updates.
There’s this radio interview from Kuwait. Money quote:
You can prove you’re a bad guy in about a minute. It takes a long time to prove you’re a good guy.
Listen to the last half especially where he talks about Afghanistan. A key difference he notes between Iraq and Afghanistan is that Iraq is an actual country, whereas Afghanistan is “kind of an area”. Expect Afghanistan to get as bad as Iraq ever was, if not worse, this spring. Speaking of which, Michael (who just arrived there) recommends reading Shakedown.
In related news, there’s the milblog reaction to victory in Iraq.
And be sure to read the story of the happy beginning of Bashar.
