just released the December 2004 "Army Stryker Brigade Initial Impressions Report on Operations in Mosul, Iraq." This document was produced by the Center for Army Lessons Learned at Ft. Leavenworth, and provides an internal view on the Army's late-2004 self-perception of how the occupation was going and outlines perceived military shortcomings in Mosul. Given David Petraeus' role in the occupation and management of Mosul, some elements of the document prefigure Petraeus' push for increased reliance on cultural knowledge for counterinsurgency. The report's six chapters cover the topics of: Command and ...
Roger L. Simon » Time to be bored with race
I have noticed of late that the moment someone starts talking about race, whether in person or, even more so, on television, my mind wanders and I start to feel very sleepy. It’s almost hypnotic, as if someone had just slipped a triple dose of those time-release Ambien capsules into a cup of Sleepy Time tea and poured it down my unsuspecting throat. Soon my eyes are beginning to close… No more race…. No more race…. You are very sleepy… And then my eyes are shut. If I hear one more reference to Shirley Sherrod’s video, I think I will turn into Rip Van Winkle. Wake me up when it’s ... market research, surveys and trends
The Kill Company
The shoot-first-and-ask-questions-later culture of the 101st Airborne Division, an execution of captured Iraqi prisoners, and how far up the chain of command responsibility lies. Three years ago, at a hastily built command center in the Iraqi desert, near Samarra, a U.S. Army colonel knelt over a dust-caked body bag. Inside were the remains of a man who had just been killed by soldiers in the colonel’s brigade, which was engaged in a vast air-assault mission called Operation Iron Triangle. The soldiers had been hunting for militants in nearby villages and crumbling Baathist-era buildings, some of which had been constructed ... market research, surveys and trends

Why We Talk to Terrorists
NOT all groups that the United States government classifies as terrorist organizations are equally bad or dangerous, and not all information conveyed to them that is based on political, academic or scientific expertise risks harming our national security. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court, which last week upheld a law banning the provision of “material support” to foreign terrorist groups, doesn’t seem to consider those facts relevant. Many groups that were once widely considered terrorist organizations, including some that were on the State Department’s official list, have become our partners in pursuing ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
As over-leveraged investment houses began to fail in September 2008, the leaders of the Republican and Democratic parties, of major corporations, and opinion leaders stretching from the National Review magazine (and the Wall Street Journal) on the right to the Nation magazine on the left, agreed that spending some $700 billion to buy the investors' "toxic assets" was the only alternative to the U.S. economy's "systemic collapse." In this, President George W. Bush and his would-be Republican successor John McCain agreed with the Democratic candidate, Barack Obama. Many, if not most, people around ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

What do you make of Spiral Dynamics?
Instead, it’s a theory of how people frame the reality they experience—how people see their worlds, why they choose to do what they do from a set of distinct ‘logics’ and what others can do because of that diversity of systems. Spiral Dynamics seeks compassion and integration without dismissing differentiation. From everything that’s on the website, this would seem to sum up the intent of what Spiral Dynamics is. The manager of the department that I recently started to work for uses Spiral Dynamics, in conjunction with Strengths Finder, in order to gain an understanding of his staff and how to get the ...
