Geeks = warriors?

First of, let me declare that I am not a regular NRO reader. But someone linked to a post there that argued that geeks = warriors in today's American because they have played war games.

I don't know how much truth there is in that. It is certainly true that DenBeste, an avid wargamer, has written technical pieces about how wars are fought, won, and lost that are far far superior to anything I have found anywhere else. He turned me onto Clauswitz, and you can find some of his good entries here.

He also pointed me to the Belmont Club that also has some very good technical posts, detailing particulars such as the importance of cash (not money) in running an insurgency.
