    RAMADI, IRAQ – After spending some time in and around Baghdad with the United States military I visited the city of Ramadi, the capital of Iraq’s notoriously convulsive and violent Anbar Province, and breathed an unlikely sigh of relief. Only a few months ago Ramadi was one of the most dangerous cities in the world. It was another “Fallujah,” and certainly the most dangerous place in Iraq. Today, to the astonishment of everyone – especially the United States Army and Marines – it is perhaps the safest city in all of Iraq outside of Kurdistan.


  2. Totten's blog is good stuff imo, not just on Iraq but the middle east in general.

    edited to add a quote from the articale:

  3. It appears that Ramadi is not so safe as it has been suggested.


  4. This shouldn't have happened, but I don't think it is going to alter the overall situation in Anbar. Killing sheikhs was what got Al-Qaeda into trouble in the first place.
  5. I have a feelin gthe brit have already been there
