A few weeks ago, Pat Dollard was telling us that Diyala Province would be the next great battleground in Iraq.
Michael Yon’s dispatch on the eve of this great battle is a must read. “Be Not Afraid”
Thoughts flow on the eve of a great battle. By the time these words are released, we will be in combat. Few ears have heard even rumors of this battle, and fewer still are the eyes that will see its full scope. Even now—the battle has already begun for some—practically no news about it is flowing home. I’ve known of the secret plans for about a month, but have remained silent.
Wonderful writing. Just reading it gives me chill bumps. Read it all! Mail a copy to Reid and Pelosi. And, drop a few coins in Michael’s tip jar while you’re at it.
