In broad strokes, "Man, that was some spicy shit, huh?"

In reality, it's not like we're in denial about anything. From a strategic perspective, counter-insurgency is something that is still trained, studied, and evolved-- not to mention still fought.

I think it will be a very long time before the last two decades of warfighting is fully unpacked.
