    Sometimes and always

    You know me, I am not an advocate of bombing what I can shoot. Of course there is merit in waiting things out, or an even handed approach. But the way this ROE change reads (from the little we know...

    I appreciate the perspective that if you lose the people you lose the war. However if the enemy fires on you indiscriminately and you have to pack out over concern for civilian casualties… I like to...

    JagMajor,

    Not tough, just well opinionated!

    I learned very early on in my SWJ postings that even the most innocuous statement will ruffle someone feathers. But I like the fact that it forces me to validate my views and rationalize them out to...

    Hey Ranger you got a minute?

    I dont know how many of you are aware that they have all of the Ranger Class photos from 1950-2009 up on the RTB website. Just click on your class date. If you were like me and were too cheap to buy...

    Wilfo,
    I could not agree more, although the facts in these releases are usually skewed. I only see more of this as the President delivers on his promise to close GITMO. I believe in basic...

    I defer to the more learn'ed but in a word yes.

    Yes, But other Council members are correct, I gave examples of shape as it will more than likely be used in the context of this campaign plan. But as you know we can use Fires, IO, Checkpoints, etc,...

    Could be way off, but that has never stopped me before!

    Shape in my mind is doing things like reforming the local police, and holding shuras to inform the populace of our intent before we go in searching houses and ticking people off. I...

    This was probably implied during this thread but I wanted to make it more obvious

    IMO we will never be able to articulate our final product because we are the facilitator. Before we can decide on why or what a "surge" (for lack of a better term) does/is. Shouldn't we pressure the...
  16. I would love to know what this Soldiers duty position was?

    My guess, Mess Kit Repair Company, Spoon Platoon, Polishing Squad. Buffer "Fire" team leader.
  17. Afghanistan's Consolidated Fielding Center (CFC)

    Few could argue that we (Coalition) have stumbled in several arenas while building the capacity of the ANSF. Frankly, I always think of someone's SWJ moniker that explains the Army as being a guy...

    An honest, although politically incorrect answer

    I read the article and agree with other comments that it is well written and researched.
    That said IMO the article itself is misguided. I got the impression that the author felt NCO's run smoke...
