Phantom Phoenix

As got reported earlier today U.S. and Coalition forces launched operation Phantom Phoenix reads like a multi layered affair involving kinetic attacks against AQI and Shiite Special Groups followed by civil affairs and engineers with bags of money for grants etc and rebuilding infrastructure. I like the way they are going about this at the same time. Oh hind sight is 20/20 to have done this two years ago. If the folks on the ground are correct and AQI is 75% degraded then this could only help to degrade that quicker. You can tell AQI is getting more desperate because of who they are attacking. Are they hitting US and Iraqi forces like they were NO. They are going after the Sunni Awaking leadership and families. Will this break the awakening I certainly hope not.
