Stories from Anbar On the Way

Blogging has been slow because I took some time off with my wife. She is leaving town for a few weeks starting this weekend, and because I've been in Iraq we have hardly seen each other. I'm writing again now, though, and will have new material published shortly about the Anbar Awakening and the Battle of Ramadi. So don't go anywhere.

Feel free to start an open thread in the comments box in the meantime. And be nice. Don't make me pull over the car.

UPDATE: Oh, and read this post from Bill Ardonlino in Fallujah. I must go to Fallujah. I will go to Fallujah, and probably soon. When you read that, you'll see why. Fallujah isn't “Fallujah” anymore. What most people think they know about that place is totally wrong. I am very surprised myself to read about what it's like there right now.
