CHESTER HAS MOVED!: Live-blogging begins . . .

Live-blogging begins . . .

Chester is back. Here is the agenda for this evening, in priority: 1. Live-blogging any breaking news . . . currently tuned in to Fox News, listening to O'Reilly. Usually shy away from tube news, but they will have frequent updates. Will offer analysis of anything that happens. 2. What will happen to captured US forces? 3. The Adventures of Chester is joint-venturing with another blogger (who will be revealed later this evening) to bring you some detailed graphics of today's actions. 4. Insurgent Strategic Plans, Operational Plans, and Tactical Plans. 5. Rest of Iraq Roundup 6. Ruminations on Principle Intelligence Requirements for this battle. 7. Battle of Hue vs. Battle of Fallujah: A Detailed Comparison 8. If time, Fallujah vs. Grozny. 9. General Thoughts on Urban Warfare. Finally, I'll spend some time answering reader email, either in the blog or one-on-one. It's an ambitious schedule, but we'll cover as much as possible. Notes: Thanks to all of you who have supported the page via the Amazon Donate Button. The Adventures of Chester will continue to strive to offer you in-depth analysis of current and future US military operations. After Fallujah is in the 'win' column for the US, we'll offer some political analysis as well -- probably some things you haven't read elsewhere. Note: The template is staying as white-on-black for now. The Adventures of Chester (TAOC) has experimented with a sandy background, and black text, but implementing it will require a great deal of time, and we want to focus on content for now. If anyone knows a shortcut to increase the font size, please post that knowledge, or email me.

Chester, THANKS for your posting. I enjoy them!!! Any clue what the snake eaters are doing? Seems to me a grand of them are out there some place. Realize it is tough to say much but any obtuse comments would be interesting. Xeagles

I know I sound a little like a kill-joy, but there is little value on discussing a conflict, which although a resounding victory in 1968 bears little resemblance to modern day urban warfare.

Both sides have learnt the lessons and moved on…

I would prefer a discussion on:

1) Why the Russians failed to win in Chechyna?
2) Why the Israeli’s lost in Lebanon?

I know the US Marines will have studied both of these “Urban conflicts” deeply.

These are the battles we have to learn the mistakes from in order to win Fallujah…

Keep Smiling,
Keith

Great site, Chester.

I have been reading with great interest.

Thanks for your service to our country and keep up the good work.

Question: Who is guarding the south of Fallujah?

Chester: Using Mozilla Firefox as a web browser (instead of IE) allows the user to enlarge the font by pressing ctrl and +. It also seems to greatly lessen spyware and other problems that haunt IE.
