Revisiting Ramadi

     I received an informative article awhile back from Mr Gary Patriquin, father of my late friend CPT Travis Patriquin (the author of the PowerPoint slideshow How to Win in Anbar).  If you’d like to know how the West was won, see Ramadi from the Caliphate to Capitalism by Andrew Lubin in the April 2008 Naval Institute Proceedings Magazine.  The article gives an outstanding overview of the way the US managed to turn the volatile Anbar province from hostile to better-than-neutral even before the 2007 troop surge. 

     Thank for the tip, Mr Patriquin!
