    ?

    I'm just baffled by Pakistan's inability to "know" of OBL's presence. I've expressed my thoughts, but one thing just bugs me: the size of the mansion. The mansion is between a hospital and...

    Another similar story.

    During the PMC "gold rush" in Iraq, most of the weapon procurements occurred beneath the table. One firm, which will remain nameless, operated out of Kuwait in the...

    If we had the will

    If we had the political will to solve this problem, which we arguably don't at the moment, what kind of strategy do you think would be ideal? Allowing private security contractors to carry heavy...

    Northern Routes Being Targeted

    A somewhat recent issue of PBS's Frontline touches on how the Taliban and their allies are trying allocate more resources to the north to counter this shift in convoys.

  5. Poll: I support this assertion all the way. If Iran is...

    I support this assertion all the way. If Iran is challenged, they will want to compete with their opponents. Iran is a fairly decent sized country (72 million people); they aren't going to be...

    There are several flaws with this. First, I doubt that we will be able to deliver such a powerful strike without killing innocent civilians. A strike on the ICA without killing...

    First off, several Kandaks do operate on their own. In fact, some plan and conduct their own operations. They're way ahead of their counterparts in the ANA and ANP. Worrying about their...

    For more information

    A SWJ Facebook fan posted a comment with this link. It lists different sources for learning about tracking. I thought that it may be of interest to readers of this thread.
  9. Air2Water-A Possible Way to Reduce the Logistical Footprint

    One of my readers sent me a note introducing Air2Water. He explained that it could be used to reduce the amount of vulnerable supply convoys in Afghanistan. In Afghanistan, convoys carrying fuel...
  10. Poll: The chance of success for completing this is...

    The chance of success for completing this is slim, if not impossible. Knocking out Iran's reaction force is impossible because it's quite concealed. How do we know that there aren't Quds Force...

    That's a very good point. I wonder how much the language barrier in Afghanistan will bog down law enforcement (by ISAF). I bet it will not only slow things down, but hamper the development of...

    Update

    A recent article by FP discussing this was published. May be of interest to SWC. LINK
  13. Something fishy about this

    This whole incident has been quite sketchy. Not only the lack of information (if it was an attack or crash), but several other points. Here's my (very crazy and hypothetical) take.

    I don't think...

    I've seen enough simulations on an Israel strike. What I think people need to see now are simulations of Iran's retaliation. As discussed in this thread, Iran has many different options. Whether...

    I remember this assertion (which I concur with) when reading a report discussing suggestions for the ANP. Scenarios like the one quoted are really happening. To be specific, there has been a...

    As some of you may have seen, some thoughts on this issue were recently published originally at SWJ. LINK

    It could be the other way around. A closed strait could force China and other countries to cooperate with the US.

    Oil would rise, but it wouldn't go that high. You are right, 80% of the world's exports go through the Persian Gulf. Guess how many Persian Gulf countries are in the list of top 15 countries where...

    Yes, the blockade would hurt us. However, we import oil from other areas. The prices will go up causing some negative effects on the economy, but we could hold out.

    Could Iran hold out? No way....

    Rex's assertions are dead on and make clear sense. What do you suggest? Should the US or Israel take military action against Iran? How bad will Iran's retaliation be through their proxies (I'm not...

    Reveals to much

    Last night, I was browsing some of the raw documents and appalled by what I found.

    After opening one report, I came across an informant's name, elder's name, and the source's phone number. ...

    I'm sure you have heard of David McCullough's 1776. It mostly talks about the New England campaign during the year of 1776. It is very informative and an enjoyable read.

    I agree and messed up. I should've paid more attention to the wording and given it some thought...a little trigger happy sometimes:o
