Edward Luttwak has a critique of this manual in the current Harper's. A copy of the article is here:www.ifri.org/files/politique_etrangere/luttwak.pdf

He argues that the techniques described in the manual will not work and that we are unwilling to terrorize the populace into not supporting the insurgents, a technique used by the Germans in WWII and by the Viet Cong in the 60's.
