From “The Military Problems of Counterinsurgency” under the heading MILITARY A PART OF WHOLE:
Military operations can only contribute when they are part of the broad plan for the re-establishment of Good Government right across the field of administration. And because the services are as a rule only brought in as a last resort and late, they are so often the only framework on which to re-establish Good Government.
– Brigadier General Charles Dunbar
As true as it ever was.
