ABSTRACT
This article explains that according to counterinsurgency doctrine, the struggle for a population's support is the core of the COIN fight. In order to truly get to know the population, you must really understand it. One could argue that the U.S. military was not attuned to this at the outset of Operation Iraqi Freedom, but soldiers and leaders with the experience of multiple rotations in Iraq and Afghanistan do understand and actively accept these two ideas as central to our current fight.
