The war is won debate

Greyhawk over at The Mudville Gazette has a good read up called Chatter (and numbers that matter)
  • Or: "How the War was Won (Part one)"

It's always good to get input from someone who's actually there and sees what's going on.

Kimberly Kagan over at The Weekly Standard has all the details on how the war was won in How They Did It . It's a long read but she pretty much covers every aspect of the strategy Petreaus has used this year to provide the security needed for the Iraq political climate to sort out.
  • The surge of operations that American and Iraqi forces began on June 15 has dramatically improved security in Baghdad and throughout Iraq. U.S. commanders and soldiers have reversed the negative trends of 2006, some of which date back to 2005.
