While I appreciate the positive feedback, I am merely articulating what the last 140 years of irregular warfare has taught us.
While I reject the idea that there are "Principles of War," I do believe that all forms of warfare are predicated on certain enduring fundamentals, without which, a successful out come is nearly always impossible.
Here is an additional LINK to the speech concerned. May be useful

- The job of the British Army out here is to kill or capture Communist Terrorists in Malaya.
- If we can double the ratio of kills per contact, we will soon put an end to the shooting in Malaya.
