250 Years of American Irregular Warfare
A new white paper published by the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments has been released about America’s involvement in irregular warfare for the past 250 years. The report was written by David Johnson who has followed up his 24-year-Army career by teaching at Georgetown and West Point. The report concludes that in many ways the United States is not prepared for modern irregular warfare, in particular our post-game (after the war) follow-up is particularly weak which leads to insurgency. The full paper is definitely worth a read and can be found at the CSBA website.
