commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

The 'Biden Option' has survived and is being used……also…..

In the march up to the President’s tasking order for the Afghan campaign….Vice President Biden argued for ‘hunter, killer’ teams to roam Afghanistan looking to inflict damage in small precise strikes again the enemy……

It appears such a campaign has, and is going forward……

U.S. Delta and U.S. Navy ‘special operators’ are busy doing their work in the hustings of Aftgahanistan…..with the report of these actions one can guess that U.S. Air Force and Marine ‘special operators’ are also involved just as they were in Iraq…..

This comes as no surprise for several reasons…..

The boss in charge is Gen. McChrystal…who ran the Joint Operations Command during the initial war in Iraq…..

The Special Operations techniques worked in Iraq and where refined…with decades old reluctance to integrate units thrown aside…

All the services have realized that Special Ops are here to stay….even the Marines…who where reluctant to embrace the concept and watched them selves get shut out of the action until they reformed up their Special Ops units….

That’s where the money is going…..

And for political reasons…using surgery…is better than using a hammer in many cases…..

Note:…..if you really step back and look at it….the U.S. has embraced many of the Israeli methods of  dealing with their enemy…..astounding, isn’t it?

September 11, 2001 rewrote the map………..

Note#2:…..in the end of the linked piece….the author mentioned that there has developed a little angst from the commanders in Iraq…seems that the Afghan campaign has moved ahead of their theater in pirorities…isn’t that sweet to hear?!….the Iraq operation is beginning to stand down…..progress!
