I was listening to NPR and it seems like the US commander in Afghanistan wants five
thousand more men on the ground. Thats not the problem for me.

NPR essentially said through the course of the conversation that after 40 years of continuous civil war nobody knows how to end the conflict. Currently the problem is that the Taliban is seeking savehaven in Pakistan and coming over the border to attack US forces and the Afghans.

Now in a perfect world we would cross the border and destroy the Taliban camps.
But this isn't a perfect world.

So I came up with an idea to surveil the border and allow US forces to react to incursions by the Taliban without having troops patrol the entire border. The system would use ELINT and then be used to dispatch US and Afghan forces to interdict the Taliban.

I know its a good idea and it's going to take time to develop it. But once I develop the idea to a point where it's ready to present to the appropriate people in the Department of Defense who do I talk to?

I'm posting it here because I can't monitor a thread of halfchan.
I'll also post it on r e d d i t.

Pakistan is already heavily surveilled by the US.

It's border sentry system on the Afghan side monitoring movements across the border. The relays realtime information to forces in theater.

hanging out in internet echo chambers has probably given him a very sound and real world view.

I'm sure nobody in the military or intelligence apparatus has ever thought of this OP. You must be a genius.

Being able to robotically follow orders in a high stress environment is vital for proper unit function and a military is stronger working together.

You can earn the right to make the orders by demonstrating your competence to do so but if you can't do that you should be robotically taking orders.

Look at the Romans versus the first barbarian nation assaults. The legions fought as a unit, the barbarians initially fought in a loose crowd without any cohesion or real leadership and they got crushed.

Try for the last 15 years.

Do you seriously think that isn't exactly what ISAF has been doing for the past 10 years?

Whats in Afghanistan?
Nothing!
Its nothing but a dope ring, they grow poppies and smuggle heroin and hashish.
Your fighting over a bunch of rocks so intelligence operatives can steal drug money to pad their retirement.
Tell me why that shit is worth dying for?

Pakistan's ISI or other rogue elements amongst the Pakistani elites have harboured and funded the Taliban and other mujahideen for decades.

There are several uses for the Taliban, historical and contemporary:
  • keeping the region unstable to prevent the rise of Afghanistan as a regional power
  • fighting the soviet army to prevent the enlargement of the Soviet sphere of influence
  • nurturing a network of militant Muslim groups that can destabilise Kashmir, the border region within Pakistan's main rival, India.
  • a source of profit from narcotics and other criminal activity.

In other words, Pakistan shelters the Taliban from the US.

Read The Prince by Machieavelli and the problem will quickly become apparent. The middle east is the type of regionbans problem that can only be conquered one way. Colonization. If we remove sufficient numbers of radicalized ( or even just religious) males from the population and import Americans we can culturally shift these regions over time to the point where they could become provinces instead of mere colonies. Think Alexander the Great hellenizing places or when we colonized Puerto Rico and Cuba. This is the only viable long term solution to not only Bring Freedom as we have promised but to ensure that the peoples of the middle east are raised out of the shothole that is their lives in the long run. Plus they will start making us money instead of being a total drain! Now that's sustainable.

Ehh I don't think it'll ever work given that it's China, Russia, and India's backyard; but as a wrestling fan I would be interested in whatever hardcore insanity they'd come up with.
