520    Often treated by Americans as an exceptional form of 
       warfare, insurgency is anything but. Spanning the globe, 
       centuries, and societies, insurgency is quite common. 
       Given the threat insurgency presents to U.S. interests and
       allies around the world, the importance of 
       counterinsurgency is no surprise. However, history has 
       shown that insurgencies are rarely defeated by outside 
       powers. Rather, the best role for outsiders is an indirect
       one: training, advising, and equipping the local nation, 
       which must win the war politically and militarily. And 
       while counterinsurgency might seem to be a task most 
       suited to ground forces, air power has much to contribute.
       These facts combine to suggest that advising, training, 
       and equipping partner air forces will be a key component 
       of U.S. counterinsurgency efforts worldwide. The authors 
       note that, if the Air Force is to participate in these 
       tasks, it will need to make counterinsurgency an 
       institutional priority, developing the capabilities of its
       personnel both as advisors and trainers and as combatants,
       as well as developing the necessary institutional support
