Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations In Current and Future Conflicts February 3, 2005

Here we go again…: 

Here we go again… After 13 years, I’m done…….

Planning 1990 WWII/National Survival: 

Planning 1990 WWII/National Survival TIME CRISIS Battlespace Box

Super-Power Planning 2003: 

Super-Power Planning 2003 TIME PHASE IV Battlespace Box CRISIS

Hyper-Power Planning : 

Hyper-Power Planning TIME PHASE IV Battlespace Box CRISIS Prevention Regional Equilibrium “No matter what happens we know where we are going.” “Prevention beats Preemption.” PSYOP/CA ALLIES/COALITION/PARTNERS

THIS is the revolution in military affairs……: 

THIS is the revolution in military affairs…… Plan this first. Plan this second. CIV CIV - good guys - bad guys

The 82d Airborne Sergeant at the Soccer Game…: 

The 82d Airborne Sergeant at the Soccer Game… “The Special Forces wanted to hug the enemy, we just wanted to kill them.” “Son, you have to do both…..”

Multiple Choice… Choose a or b.: 

Multiple Choice… Choose a or b. a: Prevention b: Preemption Info, speed, lethality, knowledge…. One better stay ahead…

Get ready for Info Wars…: 

Get ready for Info Wars… COIN I O Are we winning or losing? Hamas? Taliban? Regional? Nope, its GLOBAL! HUMAN TERRAIN Is KEY TERRAIN!

What are cooperative arrangements for… : 

What are cooperative arrangements for… Shape Deceive Project Find Capture Share Convince Change It ain’t us again’ them no more… It’s all of us against them.

Cultural awareness…: 

Cultural awareness… Casualties Cost Dissatisfaction Lack of Hope Time Hate moves the fulcrum! INTERNATIONAL COOPERATIVE CA/PSYOP?

Doctrinally & experientially, we tossed it….: 

Doctrinally & experientially, we tossed it…. Tier I: US Army Special Forces—Security Assistance, FID, IDAD plus CA and PSYOP (Nixon Doctrine – Nations defend themselves) Note: Basilan Island/Afghanistan in OEF/EL Salvador Model/Vietnam “Red Hats” in Iraq Tier II: US Army Separate Brigades- fight the heavy fight to allow host nation forces to develop. Tier III: US Army General Purpose Forces from CONUS become the main effort until the enemy is is reduced in power and handover to the host nation is possible.

We need to forgive the Cold Warriors…: 

We need to forgive the Cold Warriors… The enemy is over there and we are over here. Raids are the answer. Platforms not people. Nodal/Operational Net targeting is enough. National survival = winning, not entering the enemy territory and forcing change. The Greatest Generation were the last occupiers. War is against things, not men. Technology is the answer. When a nation hasn’t won a major war for over 50 years, lessons atrophy. DOD wasn’t watching the battle lab in Latin America, only the failure in Vietnam …..

We need to forgive reflexive reaction…: 

We need to forgive reflexive reaction… JTF’s according to joint doctrine. Steam the fleet. Rapid Deployment Operations template.

Building Up and Down…. Haiti, Panama, Afghanistan?: 

Building Up and Down…. Haiti, Panama, Afghanistan? Ambassador’s Country Team + Special Forces JTF and/or JSOTF (Corps?) JTF Light (Division then Brigade) Country Team + Special Forces

Wins can come at any time… Country Team + Special Forces JTF and/or JSOTF (Corps?) JTF Light (Division then Brigade) Country Team + Special Forces EL SALVADOR PHILIPPINES Early 1900s PANAMA

Post Vietnam: 

Post Vietnam DOD returned to its roots. Major Combat Operations against the Soviets… and rebuilt from the great debacle’s nadir of professionalism. DOD also through out the baby with the bathwater. Counter-insurgency Special Forces Unconventional Warfare Psychological Operations Civil Affairs Cognizance of Culture & Indirect Warfare

How do we win the War on Terrorism?: 

How do we win the War on Terrorism? With Intelligence. Provided by US and Global resources of allies, coalition members and friends and enemies. Cooperation on interrogation, capture, kill and prosecution. With Wisdom. Others with common interest win this war for us – In Afghanistan and elsewhere. This conflict is too big/complex for the US to go it alone – and there it will be impossible for us to effectively attack the ideology of radical Islam – Thomas Friedman has it right: Muslims MUST police themselves.

The Art Form…: 

The Art Form… Ideology Incorrigible Warriors The right balance! carrot stick

The Art Form…: 

The Art Form… Ideology Incorrigible Warriors The right balance! carrot stick The US owns neither all of the carrots nor all of the sticks!

Basic Schematic…: 

Basic Schematic… “We got him!” Muslim societies policing Muslim societies? Target? “….billions.”

Basic Schematic…: 

Basic Schematic… Muslim societies policing Muslim societies? Target? “….billions.” “We got him!” Overwhelming Force? Overmatching Force?

SOF: DA,SR,UW,WMD, CA, PSYOP, INFLUENCE, etc.: 

SOF: DA,SR,UW,WMD, CA, PSYOP, INFLUENCE, etc. WAR S O F SOF Conflict is bigger than war, winning is more important than victory.

USSOCOM: “When ones encounters a fork in the road, take it…”: 

USSOCOM: “When ones encounters a fork in the road, take it…” Raider COIN/Guerrilla Spy/Technical Expert The nation needs all three….

A transition worth watching…: 

A transition worth watching… Will SOF embrace the value of forward presence and shaping? Is demassification and hyper-specialization understood & will roles and missions correspond? Is SOF to win wars (El Salvador Model) or do less? If the charter for Paramilitary Ops comes SOF’s way, is SOF ready for structural overhaul? Will SOF take the opportunity to create a new life form for the nation or will it do incremental change and add-ons to current constructs? Will SOF address the BILLIONS? Future of SF/CA/PSYOP?

“When the GWOT is over… : 

“When the GWOT is over… …if SOF looks like it did going in, something is wrong.”* SOF, CA and PSYOP --- historic opportunity. *LTG – NDIA SOLIC 2004 JOINT RAID FOCUS 1980-on GLOBAL, COOPERATIVE, MULTI-FUNCTIONAL, MULTI-DIMENSIONAL WINNING
