The Malayan Emergency, and what it can Teach us about today’s American Emergency

 

A large part of current U.S. COIN doctrine (Counter-Insurgency) that was re-vamped and rolled out around 2006 to ground pounders in Iraq and A-Stan is based upon the lessons learned by the British during the Malayan Emergency. Think Tankers like David Kilcullen wrote extensively on it in books like The Accidental Guerilla and Out of the Mountains. It would do the Armed Citizen justice to study up on these TTP going forward for obvious reasons!

Additonal Worth While Reading:

  • The Savage Wars of Peace by Max Boot

  • Invisible Armies by Max Boot

(Please Note these books were written by the author before he became a spineless liberal).

 

On This Day — Remembering the Paris Attacks (November 13 2015)

Intel Today

“A jihadi loves a vacuum, as Syria demonstrates. Belgium as a state, and Belgium as the heart of the European Union are as close to a vacuum as Europe offers these days. (…) There is a vacuum. Vacuums are dangerous.”

Roger Cohen — The Islamic State of Molenbeek (The New York Times, April 11 2016)

November 13 2020 — The November 2015 Paris attacks were a series of coordinated terrorist attacks that took place on Friday November 13 2015 in Paris, France and the city’s northern suburb, Saint-Denis. Five years after the attacks, there are still many dark corners to that affair. Oussama Atar is dead, but many questions regarding his activities in Belgium remain unexplained.

I found it interesting that the primary rifle favored for both sniping and general use is the SVD and PSL. This reiterates the ideal that in  small guerilla groups the TERRAIN/OPERATING ENVIRONMENT generally dictates the types of weapons used.
