So what
SO WHAT?

America’s understanding of COIN is partial and very 20th century

Afghanistan is not COIN - it is past even COIN 2.0 - since it involves “nation formation” and is not (post-)colonial

Classic COIN doctrine is very limited in helping us in today’s theater

We must broaden our data-set of COIN studies

We must recognize that Irregular Warfare is Regular and that Clausewitzian principles are limited in application
