Quote of the Day: COIN Ain’t Dead

“Despite the claims of some, counterinsurgency is no more dead than is conflict. Students of the latter continue to learn, adapting lessons from post-World War II, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere.”

—Russell Glenn, director of plans and policy, G2, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, in the Spring issue of Parameters.
