Predicting Counterinsurgency

I'm reviewing (again) British Brigadier General Frank Kitson's (who's still apparently alive, by the way) Low Intensity Operations (1971) and found this:

[Peter de la Billier's 'Changing Pattern of Guerilla Warfare', R.U.S.I. Journal, Dec. 1969] comes to the conclusion that low-level urban insurgency combined with propaganda and economic pressure, is likely to be the most popular form of operation in the future, but it is too early to know whether this prediction will be fulfilled.

Just sharing... talk amongst yourselves about this.
