Pakistan & Open Source Insurgency
John Robb continues to expand on his discussion of the Open Source Warfare going on in Pakistan right now, noting that the current insurgency is not built on the "Mao model", which involved a full replacement government. The current insurgency instead involves the loose affiliation of a number of groups which are each able to contribute resources and knowledge to specific projects. Meanwhile, the Pakistani military is focused on the threat from India and the internal political threat from the existing government.
