    The End of Major Combat Operations Kindle ¸ The End major pdf, combat download, operations mobile, The End mobile, of Major mobile, End of Major epub, The End of Major Combat Operations PDFEPUBThe novelist Nick McDonell is embedded in the 1st Cavalry Division for 2 weeks ostensibly on behalf of Time magazine to gather information on an article about the tensions between the Arabs and the Kurds and whether this would escalate into a civil war The book is an account of his day to day time in Ira during those 2 weeks McDonell sees how soldiers who have been trained to fight have to learn to become diplomatic policeman as they patrol the streets direct traffic search houses and mediate disputes It's an uneasy situation for the soldiers who mostly seem lost and bored The book shows how fragile the supposed democracy of Ira is Irai interpreters or terps in military slang are saving money to leave the country before the end of 2011 as that's the date set for US Military withdrawal If they stay behind they will likely be killed When McD

    The End of Major Combat Operations Kindle ¸ The End major pdf, combat download, operations mobile, The End mobile, of Major mobile, End of Major epub, The End of Major Combat Operations PDFEPUBThis short book by Nich McDonell is a scattered collection of moments and stories from the end of the war in Ira He bounces between some stories of his friends in the US to interviews with citizens and soldiers as well as general descriptive passages of his time in Ira Interspersed with these are notes from the army guides and policies observations and some small background on the situation Each chapter is very short a few pages at the longest often only a few lines but it works well to create the impression of a whirlwind trip and the various impressions that he go

    The End of Major Combat Operations Kindle ¸ The End major pdf, combat download, operations mobile, The End mobile, of Major mobile, End of Major epub, The End of Major Combat Operations PDFEPUBFascinating essay on the state of Ira as our presence there allegedly winds down My main critiue is that McDonell doesn't sustain some important and hard inuiries about the embedding process and deals with uestions of sympathy identification and the journalistic desire for access in a somewhat glancing way once in a footnote and toward the end where he imagines but doesn't explore at any length what it might feel like to have the United States occupied by a foreign power dedicated to helping us overcome our savage and violent ways Still worth reading
