Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Counterinsurgency is an awful horrible thing to live through and the only people who do it are insane warlike dirt poor countries with huge birth rates and nothing to lose, except blood.

(And with the high birthrate that doesn't really matter).

In more developed nations where people actually want to live reasonable lives, like in Georgia, an insurgency is hard to imagine no matter how much the neocon press has been writing about it.

And when push comes to shove, if someone starts an insurgency against you, you very likely have done something very wrong.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
