Brookings Institute Report

The latest Brookings Institute report is out. A mixture of good and bad. Attacks on oil and gas are down; total attacks by insurgents up. This would reflect the strategy of fomenting sectarian conflict. Coalition losses continue down as the numerical strength of the Iraqi security forces continues up. Electricity generation is on an upward trend, but wavers. Actionable tips received from the population are up. The estimated number of foreign fighters in the insurgency appears constant, butthe total number of insurgetns is rising. The total number of insurgents detained or killed is also rising.

Infrastructure appears to be doing better than people at the moment.
