ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decline in attacks in Iraq as a result of counterinsurgency strategy of the U.S. military forces since March 2007, according to Army General David Petraeus. Petraeus said that the military forces were able to pre-empt attacks by establishing a location in some neigborhoods which prevent insurgents to build a camp and plan their assault. He states that the success of operations in Iraq is due to the military's net-centric warfare, a computer-network based way of war.
