Mario Loyola recently visited Ramadi in the Anbar Province of Iraq. His story, found here, paints yet another encouraging picture in what has become a late summer season of encouragement regarding the war in Iraq. Google Anbar Province and you’ll find plenty of archived stories from not that long ago that said that Anbar was “lost” and “beyond hope.” Today, it is perhaps the safest place in Iraq.
Is the Anbar model going to work in the rest of the country? Is the “surge” working? I say that it is and that the recent gains we have made must be consolidated and that we must continue to press our growing advantage.
Agree or disagree?
YOU TELL ME.
