I think the world's accumlated knowledge on how to halt an insurgency is: you can't whack a mole in just part of the mole-holes. And the moles reproduce rapidly.

Overwhelming force is needed and we don't have enough men in arms to do that in a nation of 25 million. Especially if the guys we are training to help have a second job at night (and sometimes in the day) as insurgents bombing our troops.

Not good news, indeed.
