air force manual outlines how to aid insurgenciesfrom raw story: The Air Force is ready to aid insurgencies.

According to a lengthy new Air Force document, which outlines US strategies for "Irregular Warfare," military resources will sometimes be needed to help insurgencies in foreign countries.

The 103-page document 'Irregular Warfare' (1.03mb PDF), published earlier this month, takes lessons from the last six years of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan to outline Air Force policies in "a violent struggle among state and non-state actors for legitimacy and influence over the relevant populations." Secrecy News first reported on the document.
