Abstract: Winning Hearts and Minds (H and M) has been widely featured as a component of counter-insurgency strategies. With the exception of the Malayan campaign, however, several traditional military powers, including the United States, Soviet Union, Great Britain and France, had at some point in history, fought and lost the counter-insurgency war in various parts of the world, primarily because they had failed to win H and M. It triggers a mind-bogging question as to whether winning H and M is indeed a correct and feasible strategy in the war against insurgencies and terrorism, and if so, what are the measures that need to be adopted to ensure its success
