How to do Counter-Insurgency:
It is probably safe to say it's unanimous here that we support the nomination of General Jim Mattis for command of Central Command.
We have many emails and accounts of General Mattis' leadership during the battle of Fallujah. He was the co-author of the COIN manual for the Marines and the Army. He is the warrior monk.
Other than the deputy of CENTCOM, there is no other good choice, better choice or best choice other than General Mattis.
No better friend, no worse enemy.
