Understanding the Surge

Check out this educational website, Understanding the Surge, that discusses the counterinsurgency-based strategy shift in Iraq. It's important to understand what we did in Iraq after 2006 because our strategy adjustments in Afghanistan are based on what we changed in Iraq. Really, the only hope that justifies present-day optimism about the Afghanistan mission is that COIN worked in Iraq so it might work in Afghanistan.
