“To confine soldiers to purely military functions while urgent and vital tasks have to be done, and nobody else is available to undertake them, would be senseless. The soldier must then be prepared to become a propagandist, a social worker, a civil engineer, a schoolteacher, a nurse, a boy scout. But only for as long as he cannot be replaced, for it is better to entrust civilian tasks to civilians.”
David Galula, Counterinsurgency Warfare: Theory and Practice

“...to let the military direct the entire process...is so dangerous that it must be resisted at all costs.”
David Galula, Counterinsurgency Warfare: Theory and Practice

“Relying on luck, however, does not constitute a policy.”
David Galula, Counterinsurgency Warfare: Theory and Practice
