Discussion of warfare and conflict as pertaining to current events. Conflict can be non-armed, although it will be related to the armed conflicts of today.

The Basra operation was an Iraqi army operation. I have heard that the Iraqi objective in the assault upon Basra was the port facilities. I will be interested in any news regarding control of these facilities.
I have been studying warfare for more than 40 years. While I know a great deal, nobody knows everything. I like to joke with my wife about how everyone is always right. You are wrong for only a few seconds on the issue, then you see the error, now you are correct! It is an easy habit to get into. Another way I look at it is that you see what you want to see. Everyone has prejudices. Knowing about them will help. However, you have to work at it. I try not to allow them to change what I am looking at. I believe that I even succeed from time to time.
