Thus there has evolved a new set of terms:
- coindinistas—those who believe the Army needs to have a strong focus on counter-insurgency and that it is a sufficiently specialized activity that it requires its own doctrine, TTP, equipment and training,
- cointras—who believe there is something to this COIN action, but believe that a well trained soldier can adapt and do well in any situation, and now,
- coin-fused—which says it all
An interesting, fun, and important debate.

♠ Not everything is doctrine, thus TTP. But, in the US Army every activity is covered one way or the other.
