Fearless Navy Bloggers Take to the Air: Episode 29 COIN and the USMCs next decade 7/18/2010

5pm/1700 Eastern U.S. Sunday - join CDR Salamander and me for Episode 29 COIN and the USMCs next decade 7/18/2010 - Midrats on Blog Talk Radio:
As we move into our second decade of conflict with Islamist terrorism, what have we learned, relearned, or having to unlearn about Counter Insurgency (COIN)? Our guest to discuss this will be Dr. Andrea J. Dew, Co-Director, Center on Irregular Warfare & Armed Groups (CIWAG), Strategy and Policy Department U.S. Naval War College Newport, RI. For the second half of the show, we will look at the moves being made already to gut the USMC force levels at first chance - how do we get the narrative right to fight this coming battle? Returning guest, Mark E. Stanovich, LtCol USMCR will be with us to discuss this along with the latest developments with the Marine Corps.
