The Mid-Coast Forum on Foreign Relations recently hosted a talk by Pulitzer Prize winning author Fred Kaplan. His talk is titled Counterinsurgency, Iraq, and Afghanistan: Counterinsurgency, Iraq, and Afghanistan: One Strategy Doesn't Fit All. Kaplan says that counter-insurgency is inseparable from nation-building, and anyone not willing to undertake the second has no business with the first.
