Michael Yon has some competition in the gut-tightening combat-action story department. This has been up for a little while but Mr. Fumento seems to have updated it somewhat. For the first time in years I actually feeling like buying a magazine, but I’m not sure if the Weekly Standard is available in this country (readily, anyway). Regardless, if you want to know what it’s like to be on the ground in Ramadi check out his account here.
Also interesting: perspectives on what the elimination of al-Zarqawi means to the forces on the ground over there. It’s great having direct reporting from independent embeds, but it doesn’t sound terribly safe either.
