The US seems to be getting their asses kicked in the insurgency/counter insurgency game for some 40 years now..... But historically it seems like occupation has always been a pretty easy task for you know, occupiers. If you can become an occupier the rest is downhill right? Am i missing something here? Has something profound changed? Has there been some advent in the asymmetric sciences or technologies that are true game changers? BTW Israel seems to be losing their edge as well. And in similar ways. School me.
