The M Word, The G Word.

Here is an interesting perspective on the kid-gloves approach we have seen to date in the poorly named GWOT.

I am not in full agreement with this article, in light of one issue that the author overlooks, a weakness arising from this curious phenomenon. The article is a little too optimistic about Western resolve and capability to mobilise, especially in the European context, which is closer to low-level civil war. The penetration of security forces is another complicating factor not considered in the article.

Nevertheless, I thoroughly recommend this challenging, well written and highly controversial read.
