Gary Anderson is a retired Marine Corps Colonel who has been a civilian advisor in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is an adjunct professor at the George Washington University's Elliott School of International Affairs.

One of the primary fallacies regarding Fourth Generational Warfare is that the United States must totally retool its force structure to deal with this emerging evolution in warfare.

How is the Islamic State looking at the situation in Iraq and Syria? It is impossible to be sure, but they are fairly transparent in their public statements.
