This chapter compares and contrasts direct and indirect approaches to counterinsurgency as personified by Leonard Wood and John J. Pershing, laying out a point-by-point comparison and analyzing the pros and cons of each. It then introduces a third Moro group (in addition to Maranaos and Maguindanaos), the Tausug Moros of Jolo Island in the Sulu Archipelago. Reacting to Leonard Wood’s aggressive pacification policy, Tausug warriors violently fought back collectively and in individual acts of ritual suicide, or parrang sabbil.

Keywords:   direct and indirect approaches to counterinsurgency, Bates Agreement, Sultan Jamal-ul Kiram II, Tausug, Jolo, parrang sabbil, juramentado
