ABSTRACT
The article discusses the importance of irregular warfare (IW) to U.S. military operations, especially those associated with the war on terrorism, in the 21st century. The author explains that the U.S. will decrease the use of standard counterinsurgency (COIN) operations in its counterterrorism efforts, as evidenced by a lack of success in the Iraq and Afghan Wars. It is argued that the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) must balance standard deterrence with IW against non-state actors.
