Reporter/aurhor imbedded with forces in Iraq. Michael Yon is his name.

There is some good reading here.

The section titled "Jungle Law" is exceptionally well written, couple of paragraphs down.

Deuce Four is an overwhelmingly aggressive and effective unit, and they believe the best defense is a dead enemy. They are constantly thinking up innovative, unique, and effective ways to kill or capture the enemy; proactive not reactive. They planned an operation with snipers, making it appear that an ISF vehicle had been attacked, complete with explosives and flash-bang grenades to simulate the IED. The simulated casualty evacuation of sand dummies completed the ruse.

The Deuce Four soldiers left quickly with the "casualties," "abandoning" the burning truck in the traffic circle. The enemy took the bait. Terrorists came out and started with the AK-rifle-monkey-pump, shooting into the truck, their own video crews capturing the moment of glory. That's when the American snipers opened fire and killed everybody with a weapon. Until now, only insiders knew about the AK-monkey-pumpers smack-down.

Nice one!

all his writing is good detailed "boots on the ground" type of stuff. you get to see the populace at the ground level and not from the 15th floor of whatever hotel reporters are hiding in nowadays. he's also not holed up in baghdad either...

d00p btw.
