The article presents the author's opinions regarding articles related to military policies, which have been published within the issue. The lead article in this issue, "How to Win in Iraq," by Terence Daly, is one of the most important articles that have been published in the periodical in 2005. Daly argues that victory can be achieved only by employing classic counter-guerrilla skills. According to James Pelkofski's article "Before the Storm: al Qaeda's Coming Maritime Campaign," terrorists may be planning to launch waterborne attacks. The military forces must be prepared to counter such attacks.
