Insight into Syrian COIN methodology/mindset
Hello to the community,
While seeking out and researching non-western COIN literature, I came across this al-Jazeera report that included several primary source documents allegedly leaked from within the Syrian government. Representative of Syrian efforts to undermine the internal "insurgency" being conducted by the Free Syrian Army. Not lengthy or technical but insightful nonetheless.
Please excuse the misspelled entry title - couldn't figure out how to go back and change it.

are we that different...
Interesting parallels between what the Syrian government is advocating and our own COIN doctrine.
Begs the question; If the U.S. Army was directed to support the current Syrian regime in its counterinsurgency fight, what would our operational directives look like?
