...from Ralph Peters. Ralph’s actually done some real work here. He’s, for example, interviewed our friend the "blade-sharp" Lt. Col. Doug Ollivant, who reports that "the counterinsurgency fight is already largely won."
Lt. Col. Ollivant, if you read this, our humble thanks for your service and for that of those around you. And your remark is quite heartening. I had a drink with you and Paul Seaton a few years back in the Bronx, and look forward to seeing you again sometime.
I don't always like Ralph Peters, particularly in his overdone Euro-bashing moments, but he's got the investigative goods and analysis in this column. A must-read.
