The first nine names do not come as a surprise--names like Gen. David Petraeus, Lt. Col. John Nagl, Dave Dilegge (retired Lt. Col.?) of Small Wars Journal, Lt. Col (Ret) David Kilcullen of the Australian Army, Andrew Exum...you get the picture.
But the last name kind of surprised me: noted COINtra (someone who opposes what is commonly known as the "COIN Kool-aid") Gian Gentile. Say what you want about Gentile, but he does serve as a useful voice of balance against becoming too focused on counterinsurgency. There may be other wars we will find ourselves in, of only for a brief time.
