212: Can the US Military Defeat an Insurgency‪?‬ War Stories with Preston and Sayre

    • Society & Culture

Something that bothers me when I think about the last 20 years of war is that we, the United States, don’t have a solution to modern insurgency.  If we couldn't figure it out over 20 years in two countries, I wonder if the military isn't the correct tool for that job.
