On Patrol with the Army in Rural Iraq

From NPR's Morning edition 29 January 2008: "Baghdad may be calmer, but in many outlying areas of Iraq, insurgents pose a persistent threat.

Nearly 300 American soldiers and an Iraqi army unit, backed up by armored vehicles and air support, recently launched an operation to clear a farming community north of Baghdad of al-Qaida fighters and their weapons. The Army unit's offensive in the village along the Tigris River highlights new efforts to secure rural Iraq." Listen to audio broadcast (4:19)

RAND Paper: Money in the Bank -- Lessons Learned from Past Counterinsurgency (COIN) Operations

Lessons Learned from Past Counterinsurgency (COIN) Operations

Summary "As insurgent threats evolve and assume new forms, the United States must also evolve in its ability to counter potentially prolonged threats in several parts of the world. Because of the potential for global reach in contemporary insurgencies, the ability to draw on lessons learned from past counterinsurgency (COIN) campaigns using different historical cases can be valuable, helping current and future leaders prevent a repetition of mistakes and building a foundation on which to build contemporary responses. To this end, six historic COIN operations from the 19th and 20th centuries are examined to determine which tactics, techniques, and procedures led to success and which to failure. The Philippines, Algeria, Vietnam, El Salvador, Jammu and Kashmir, and Colombia were chosen for their varied characteristics relating to geography, historical era, outcome, type of insurgency faced, and level of U.S. involvement. Specific issues examined include the counterinsurgents’ ability to innovate and adapt, the need to find a way to recognize the threat, and tactics for confronting it."

New at CARL: The Ghost Mountain boys

Check our holdings at CARL: The Ghost Mountain boys : their epic march and the terrifying battle for New Guinea : the forgotten war of the South Pacific

Summary: "New Guinea is among the world's largest islands. In 1942, when World War II exploded onto its shores, it was an inhospitable, cursorily mapped, disease-ridden land of dense jungle, towering mountain peaks, deep valleys,and fetid swamps. Coveted by the Japanese for its strategic position, New Guinea became the site of one of the South Pacific's most savage campaigns. Despite their lack of jungle training, the 32nd Division's Ghost Mountain Boys were assigned the most grueling mission of the entire Pacific campaign: to march 130 miles over the rugged Owen Stanley Mountains and to protect the right flank of the Australian army as they fought to push the Japanese back to the village of Buna on New Guinea's north coast."

New Publications
Sustaining the Peace after Civil War, by Dr. T. David Mason. The author examines what social science research can reveal about how civil wars end and what predicts whether (and when) they will recur. Research suggests that the outcome of the previous civil war--whether it ended in a government victory, a rebel victory or a negotiated settlement--as well as the duration and deadliness of the conflict, affect the durability of the peace. Jordanian National Security and the Future of Middle East Stability, by Dr. W. Andrew Terrill. The author considers ways the U.S.-Jordanian alliance might be used to contain and minimize problems concerning both countries. He highlights Jordan's emergence as a vital U.S. ally in efforts to stabilize Iraq and to resist extremism and terrorism in the region. He also examines Jordanian differences with Iran as well as its approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The Interagency and Counterinsurgency Warfare: Stability, Security, Transition, and Reconstruction Roles, edited by Dr. Joseph R. Cerami and Mr. Jay W. Boggs. This volume, published in partnership with The Bush School of Government and Public Service, Texas A&M University, addresses the SSTR missions that place the most pressure on interagency communication and coordination. The results of the authors' analyses reveal that the interagency process needs reform and that a more robust effort to integrate and align civilian and military elements is a prerequisite for success.

Lessons Learned from Past Counterinsurgency (COIN) Operations

RAND Counterinsurgency Study -- Paper 4

By: Angel Rabasa, Lesley Anne Warner, Peter Chalk, Ivan Khilko, Paraag Shukla

"As insurgent threats evolve and assume new forms, the United States must also evolve in its ability to counter potentially prolonged threats in several parts of the world. Because of the potential for global reach in contemporary insurgencies, the ability to draw on lessons learned from past counterinsurgency (COIN) campaigns using different historical cases can be valuable, helping current and future leaders prevent a repetition of mistakes and building a foundation on which to build contemporary responses. To this end, six historic COIN operations from the 19th and 20th centuries are examined to determine which tactics, techniques, and procedures led to success and which to failure. The Philippines, Algeria, Vietnam, El Salvador, Jammu and Kashmir, and Colombia were chosen for their varied characteristics relating to geography, historical era, outcome, type of insurgency faced, and level of U.S. involvement. Specific issues examined include the counterinsurgents’ ability to innovate and adapt, the need to find a way to recognize the threat, and tactics for confronting it."
