    Most effective weapon against Taliban

    The most effective weapon against Taliban
    By Gerald: Internet Anthropologist Think Tank

    The US drones over Paki have proved to be the
    most feared weapon against the Taliban.

    Over and over again the Taliban have made
    threats ofer the use of the Drone equipted
    with Missiles.

    They are the Taliban's worst nightmare.
    And again they have sucessfully pressured
    the Paki Goverment to request the USA
    withdraw the weapon.

    US should consider doubling the weapon.
    And training "GAMERS".

    The skill level for drone flight and attack
    is more akin to a video game and doesn't
    require REAL military pilots to fly them.

    Taking actual attack videos and actions
    and converting them to gaming box, will
    allow the training of huge volumes of
    ready trained "drone pilots".

    The current paradigm is equalivant to
    saying an auto driver must be an
    automotive engineer.

    It just doesn't make sense.
    Game training can make the
    required parameters for drone flying
    and attacks intutive.

    And there is a huge population in the
    military that are very adept at gaming

    Even the Air Force uses computer
    trainers for their pilots.

    The paradigm for gamers to adopt to
    drone engagements is there.
    But not reconignized by the BRASS.

    The younger officers know it and
    have experienced it.

    X-Box. re configure the parameters
    to match the drones and attacks
    and you have a great training
    method for non pilot gamers
    to run very efficent attacks
    and a great force mulitiplier.

    Why is Paki asking USA to
    drop the most effective
    weapon they have against
    the Taliban, the same
    demand the Taliban is making.


    Pakistan to U.S.: Stop the Drone Strikes (And More Weapons, Please)

    By Nathan Hodge EmailJanuary 28, 2009 | 11:48:50 AMCategories: Drones, Perils Of Pakistan, War Update

    Predator_hellfireAs a new U.S. administration tries to craft a new strategy for the region, Pakistan's government seems to be embarking on a public-relations push. Step one: ask Washington to call off the drones.

    Speaking to CNN's Christiane Amanpour at the World Economic Forum, Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani called on the United States to stop drone attacks against al Qaeda and Taliban fighters on Pakistani territory. "I want to put on record that we do not have any agreement between the government of the United States and the government of Pakistan," Gilani said.

    Gilani's statement was in response to testimony yesterday by U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. Asked by senators if the missile strikes by drones would continue, Gates said both President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama had made clear they would continue to pursue al Qaeda across the border into Pakistan. "Has that decision been transmitted to the Pakistan government?" asked Sen. Carl Levin, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

    "Yes, sir," Gates said.

    In parallel, Asif Ali Zardari, the president of Pakistan, is urging Washington to send more money and equipment to fight extremists. In an opinion piece in today's Washington Post, he chided critics in the United States for questioning Pakistan's commitment to the war on terrorism. "With all due respect, we need no lectures on our commitment," he wrote. "This is our war. It is our children and wives who are dying."

    Zardari also asked for more advanced weaponry:

    To the extent that we are unable to fully execute battle plans, we urge the United States to give us necessary resources -- upgrading our equipment and providing the newest technology -- so that we can fight the terrorists proactively on our terms, not reactively on their terms. Give us the tools, and we will get the job done.

    Interestingly, Zardari said that Pakistani F-16s had been used in airstrikes against Taliban and al-Qaeda. That's an interesting point: the long-delayed delivery of F-16s to Pakistan was a major sore point in relations between Islamabad and Washington, and many observers suggested Pakistan's interest in advanced weaponry had less to do with fighting extremists and more to do with arming against the old adversary, India. "Even if Pakistan were serious about fighting the Taliban, it could certainly find a better way to spend the hundreds of millions of dollars the F-16s will cost," wrote DANGER ROOM pal Joshua Kucera back in 2004. "But the Pakistanis gave a clue as to what they really want with the planes: They are requesting that the F-16s be armed with top-of-the-line air-to-air missiles that would be of little use against targets like the Islamists it's fighting on the ground."




    Paki asking the US to stop the drone attacks
    shows a basic fatal flaw in their paradigm
    of fighting the Taliban.
    Any increase of advanced weapons could
    end up in the hands of the Taliban.
    I still do not believe the Paki army is serious
    about fighting the Taliban.
    The Paki Army has shown to many failures
    related to defeating the Taliban and
    their Intelligence service has been too
    friendly with the Taliban to be trusted
    They still have not taken out the key
    info wariors in Paki.
    The web masters, even though Internet
    anthropologist have provided 15 of their
    IPs and physical locations.

    Big question still remains "Where are the
    Taliban getting their ammo from?

    I think the taliban are most likely getting their weapons from the Russians and the Indians
