The Accidental Guerrilla Book Club

__________________________

No posting today because we are hoping you will traipse over to MILPUB and participate in a discussion of David Kilcullen's Accidental Guerrilla.

We got the post up late (6 p.m.), and that may be partially responsible for the lag. As of now (late Tuesday night), most of the pub denizens are just looking at the chip bowl, and not sure how to actually DO book club. We don't know either, and this is just an experiment but we hope it becomes interactive, and we hope it is productive.
We hope everyone is not just plumb saturated by Counterinsurgency (COIN) yet.

So, if you've ever had any questions about the man or the book that started The Surge, wanna know why we had to go get an Aussie for the job, or any esoterica at all, please pop by. Somebody should be on staff waiting to help out.

Lisa,
You always doubt my ability to predict. I told you before we went to press that the pub crowd was going to boycott this effort. it was so clear that even i could predict it.
Fuck em, it was a good idea.

Ranger Hazen,
I can't go home - i signed on for the duration.
Chief,
I pulled a withdrawal w/o enemy pressure b/c i was humiliated by the reception that this fine idea rec'd.
This would've been a first, and it was except....
I'll consolidate and reorganize.
You bring up and redistribute the ammo.
To both of you- thanks for your friendship.
And esp. to RH- thanks for sticking with a school house Ranger.

I admit that i just don't get it.
Your art. on Langemark is great and is getting good thread at milpub, but COIN is ignored (largely?)\WTF?
