How did the US Marine Corps and local tribal leaders turn the corner in Fallujah? Who were the people on the ground, Iraqi and American, who were the catalyst for the change that brought about a sea change in the tactical, operational, and strategic direction in Iraq?
Our guest for the full hour to discuss that and more will be author Bill Ardolino. We will use as a base of our discussion his new book, Fallujah Awakens: Marines, Sheikhs, and the Battle Against al Qaeda.
Bill is the associate editor of The Long War Journal. He was embedded with the U.S. Marine Corps, the U.S. Army, the Iraqi Army, and the Iraqi Police in Fallujah, Habbaniyah, and Baghdad in 2006, 2007, and 2008, and later with U.S. and Afghan forces in Kabul, Helmand and Khost provinces in Afghanistan. His reports, columns, and photographs have received wide media exposure and have been cited in a number of academic publications. He lives in Washington, DC.
CALL TO ACTION: People of GOD, if we put more time into "PRAYNG", then we do complaining and pointing fingers; GOD through us would bring forth healing and "COMPLETE RESTORATION". YES! What we are witnessing in our world today is factual and real; but I have learned through practice that the TRUTH of the infallible WORD of GOD "supersedes" ALL facts. Make a quality decision "right now" to be a part of the solution and to STOP perpetuating the problems. How shall we become a part of the solutions? Simple, through "PRAYER". Didn't' JESUS tell us that we ought to ALWAYS "PRAY" and not faint (Luke 18:1)? Are we not admonished (counseled) in (Philippians 4:6) not to be anxious (in anxiety, distress, fear or worry) about or over NOTHING, but in EVERYTHING to "PRAY" unto GOD? Are we not further encouraged to "PRAY" without ceasing (1st Thessalonians 5:17), exhorted (warned) to supplicate (petition on behalf of), "PRAY", intercede (reconcile/RESTORE) and to give thanks for ALL mankind (1st Timothy 2:1-3)? Are we not told to "PRAY" for one another so that we may be healed (James 5:16)? Do we not remember that GOD has promised in HIS WORD in (2nd Chronicles 7:14) that if we (HIS people), who are called by HIS name would humble ourselves (come out of arrogance and pride and lower ourselves before HIM), "PRAY", seek HIS face (not HS hand) and turn from our own wicked ways (of doing and thinking) that then and only then will HE hear (listen to us), forgive our sin and heal our land? The number 66 symbolizes the reduction of or the loss of faith to the Divine Plan of Almighty GOD. It is through "PRAYER" that the Divine Plan of Almighty GOD shall be "COMPLETELY RESTORED".
