Evidence that front line troops and not just generals have learned lessons from Iraq and are talking a new language - report from Helmand by Peter Graff of Reuters.

"We learned that we can't just go around kicking down doors because that won't work. In Iraq, what really helped us win over there, make the situation better, was gaining the trust of the people, becoming friends with them."

Its clear from an interview with VOA that the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs is fully on board.
