Global Guerrillas

My latest interest is the web site Global Guerrillas, run by terrorism analyst and former counter-terror unit member John Robb. Robb posts irregularly, but when he does you feel like actually interesting thought is emerging from the confrontation with international terrorism. Robb is about to unveil, on May 17th, a new paper or short e-book developing a doctrine of global guerilla warfare.

My favorites from his previous posts:

Small groups, global warfare, and the democratization of violence
Small groups can now replicate the state’s most vital commodity – large-scale violence.

Mapping terrorist networks
Using statistical analysis, not moralizing backwash, to understand Al Qaeda.

The bazaar of violence in Iraq
Fighting groups with no central structure.

Was 9/11 a “Black Swan”?
Expecting the unexpected.
