This chapter describes a model of counterinsurgency warfare that has guided U.S. policies in Iraq since the latter was invaded by the United States in 2003. It highlights the public appearance of El Salvador as the source of an exemplary model of warfare and considers some of the historical content of this warfare doctrine, including an explicit link to Intipucá. The chapter then examines a dominant U.S. development and foreign aid strategy that also has connections to Intipucá and Washington DC. It argues that the two U.S. foreign policy projects, counterinsurgency warfare and grassroots entrepreneur-based development, are complementary strategies which characterize America's revitalized interventionist policy in the twenty-first century.

Keywords:   counterinsurgency, warfare, Iraq, United States, El Salvador, Intipucá, entrepreneur-based development, foreign aid, Washington DC, foreign policy
