Quotes

... Among all the activities
 that arm the mind, the most important is the study of history and the 
classical theorists," Van Riper said.  "Whenever leaders of the U S Armed Forces have lost
 sight of this fact, great difficulty has followed; no better examples exist
 than the Korean and Vietnam wars and the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Force of
 arms will not win the current war against a global Islamist insurgency
 without a strategy and supporting campaign plans. We will not have such a 
strategy and associated plans until those responsible for our national security gain a requisite knowledge of history and military theory."
...To quote a British specialist on Islamist radicalism, writing recently  on the utter failure of the British approach to jihadism: "it is also unclear if a state or society can win an ideology-based conflict if it ceases defending, advocating, believing in, and seeking to spread its own ideals."
"At the core of a civilized society you find the humanities. I am humbled to be recognized by the Alabama Humanities Foundation. Wayne Greenhaw was a personal friend and I am honored to receive an award which bears his name." Dr. Hawkins said
...It isn't "just​" al Qaeda, it isn't single leaders like bin Laden that we ​are ​fight ​ing​. It is, rather, an entrenched ideology. "This isn't about individuals nor is it about specific organizations. And this is the greatest failing--in fact the fallacy of the current administration's analysis and strategic response. It's not about a given group, it's not about what they call A​l Qaeda ​S​enior ​L​eadership or ​just ​hunting down Aym​an​ al Zawahiri​. If you kill bin Laden, if you kil​l​ ​Zawahiri, ​that is utterly irrelevant because the enemy is the narrative, the ideology that drives these individuals, that​s what​ makes Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi so successful in recruiting fighters to capture most of Iraq."
