Abstract: The prevalent wisdom in Counterinsurgency (COIN) theory is that the ‘Iron-Fisted’ approach to defeating insurgencies is counter-productive. The recent success of the Sri Lanka Armed Forces (SLAF) suggests that under the right conditions, a decisive battlefield victory is possible. But will this translate into an enduring resolution?
