Another interesting post. This concept is interesting although I don’t know if the higher ups would ever buy into. From a SF Teams perspective it works but regualar army? Something to think about.
There is an amazing paper out by a Special Forces officer MAJ Jim Gant about how to win in Afghanistan which Grim references in the post below. It comes from his team’s personal experiences and it is absolutely spot on. All of his ideas are well-grounded in reality and all of his strategic concepts reflect the best possible solutions to an incredibly difficult problem. I only wish there was a chance in hell they would be adopted. You can read his paper here and I highly recommend it.
Check out Uncle Jimbos post then the paper.
