Iraqi guerrillas change tactics every two or three weeks
The Iraqis are managing to change their tactics every two or three weeks, according to one American officer.

How are they able to do this? Probably because this is a a new type of resistance, one that does not have a single, unified leadership. Instead what we are seeing are autonomous groups that fight the occupation, but which also share and copy each others tactics. If some form of attack shows promise, another group will take it up and improve on it. John Robb has been studying this strategy for some time and calls it open source warfare. The reference to open source software is obvious and deliberate.

The Americans by way of contrast are still stuck a generation behind the times, waiting for orders to come down from a central authority.
