Abstract:

Military Leaders should learn all they can about the tactics used to battle insurgency in the Philippines. These lessons will save the lives of Soldiers and promote what America stands for. All leaders should teach their Soldiers about the culture of the country they are deploying too and exactly what their jobs will be and how to treat and interact with the local population. They must understand that foreign countries would rather be ruled by a local devil than a foreign saint. History does not repeat itself. People repeat themselves.
