Thanks again to Commander Herb Carmen and Andrew Exum for tackling the topic of COIN for the aviation community. Most aviators haven't had quite the experience that our ground brethren have undergone in the past decade, something which I feel is to our detriment.

The thread's amusing because it gives "ground-pounders" a glimpse of the aviation mentality, one which is characterized by a short attention span. This, of course, is what makes "COIN for Aviators" that much more difficult, in that years worth of counterinsurgency research winds up being compressed into a 45 minute presentation. But hey, any little bit helps.
