    Paradigm shift, war to police action.

    Paradigm Intel: War status.
    There is some evidence that the struggle has or will switch from a "War"
    to a "Police Action". After Iraq.

    A "running hammer,( snipers and special squad )" and "burn ( Battalion; ready for air drop )" may be more effective, and put fewer troops in the field. Ability to hit "them" 24/7 with snipers and supper supported squad.

    Snipers allow pin point, individual, targeting with almost no collateral damage. Engage them anywhere, anytime.

    Drop in a squad of 4 to 8 in support of sniper teams.

    The squad, like the CIA team that fought the WAR of Afghan, would have the backing and power of a battalion, and full air support, gunships, c-130, B-52's, drones, arty everything..
    Snipers take out some Taliban and when the rest come after the snipers
    use air power to take out rest of Taliban.

    Taliban take over a town drop in 4 sniper teams backed by the special squad.
    Start shooting Taliban: quit when they are all dead. Use the burn for blocking.

    5 to 10 of these special squads with snipers could run the Taliban to ground.

    Use the sniper teams as bait and grind al Qaeda and Taliban up.
    Don't react to village take overs, chase them, switch from reaction to chasing.

    They don't have enough forces to protect every village,
    but do have enough forces to chase them 24/7.
    Switch snipers and 'team' out every 12 hours.
    Hot teams running them all the time.


    USA is facing maybe 20,000 terrorist world wide, minus guns for hire.
    Afghan its a third of that at most, mostly farmers,
    about half with any Military training, very little medical support.
    Problems with addiction, poor performance and high turn over rates
    internal fighting, language problems, payroll and food supplies and keeping morale up. Freezing and their leader is hiding in a cave.

    They switched context, USA hasn't yet.

    Is anyone checking the suicide bombers remains for drugs???

    20,000 terrorist world wide, minus guns for hire

    Sounds much too low to me.

    How do you minus the guns for hire?

    Are you counting Qods, Hezbollah, Hamas, Pakistani Taliban?

    120,000 maybe

    Thanks for the feed back,
    Yes I mis-spoke, al Qaeda, and Taliban world wide.
    I'm looking at 911 mission, primarly Afghan, and Pakti, not including the groups you mentioned.

    "guns for hire"
    minus them by buying them...
    Hire them away, al-la Iraq, Anbar.

    You think the 40,000 figure to low for Afghan and Pakti?

    Last year it was estimated Mehsud commanded an army of 30,000 fighters. And that was just Taliban on the Pak side of the Durand Line.

    How does any Westerner, when trying to count AQ and Taliban noses, sort out the fanatics from the mercenaries?

    This page has two news stories
    one says 30,000 Taliban and tribal levies.
    The other says 5,000 I think.
    I suspect the 5,000 are Taliban and tribal levies account for the other 25,000.
    I don't think the pop. in the immediate area could accommodate 30,000.
    Tribal levies maybe short hand for guns for hire and intimidation.
    My estimates are on the low side. But maybe closer to the truth, time will tell.
