  H. Thomas Hayden: Civil-Military Campaign?
The RD Campaign Plan totally included all military operations, and made sure that any kind of counterinsurgency or major combat operation in any province would first consider the impact on the Revolutionary Development Program.
Unfortunately, the TET Offensive of 1968 set the RD Campaign Plan on its rear end and a new Accelerated Campaign Plan was developed.
It cannot over emphasize that the military and foreign service personnel be trained in the language, culture, religion, and history of their area of operation.

 CCC - Afghanistan Military Campaign Enters New Phase
The two main achievements of the anti-terrorist military campaign in Afghanistan are: one, terrorists have been denied safe haven and freedom of action in Afghanistan; and two, it has been demonstrated to terrorists worldwide that the form of violence manifested in September 11, 2001 will not be tolerated by the United States and its allies.
The Taliban as an organized military opposition no longer exists; yet their remnants, and almost the entire Taliaban leadership, continue to be at large, and they are potentially harmful to the current Afghanistan regime.
Military strategy to meet potential threats in Afghanistan is a matter of professional judgment by the concerned military commanders.

 PARAMETERS, US Army War College Quarterly - Summer 1996
It is necessary to appreciate that although, at times, military forces combined with a policy of attrition of insurgents may have a crucial role to play in restoring and maintaining government control, military force is not an end in itself, but always a means to achieve a wider political purpose.
While military forces may have a critical role to play at certain stages in the campaign, overall their contribution will be secondary and should be kept in perspective.
A police or military unit (covert or overt) tasked with conducting deep operations may be given a variety of surveillance or disruptive tasks, such as infiltrating the financial dealings of an insurgency, or conducting overt checks to break up or expose an insurgent's patterns of behavior and lines of communications.

 Fiscal conservatives challenge Bush on campaign pledges - Military Photos
Bush is campaigning for a second term promising to overhaul the Social Security retirement system and the U.S. tax code.
Bush campaign spokesman Scott Stanzel said the White House would release some details about Bush's plans "in the coming weeks," and he insisted the new proposals would "not significantly impact our ability to cut the deficit in half in five years" from this year's projected record of $445 billion.
But the Bush campaign says Bush has yet to settle on a plan to reform the retirement system or on a means to finance it.

 The Seattle Times: Local News: Kerry campaign courts military-family voters
Ruger and her husband drove from southwestern Washington yesterday to meet in a Kent living room with several women touring the country for the Democrat's campaign in a bid to show that military families are unhappy with President Bush's handling of the war.
The Kerry campaign organized the meeting and brought in three women from Military Moms with a Mission, a group of roughly 15 women who are on a nationwide tour to stump for Kerry during the waning days of the campaign.
There she found the military families group and began speaking out against the war, breaking what she described as a taboo among military families against criticizing the president.

 BBC News | AMERICAS | Military campaign: One week on
It is asymmetric because a first world military is having to adapt its strategies and tactics to a developing world conflict in which the opponent will be seeking to exploit any weakness that presents itself from the American side, but otherwise will avoid any direct military clashes.
The danger that the Taleban may still have military assets which could threaten their forces has led the US leadership to drop the term "control" of the air and instead focus on "air supremacy" as their initial achievement.
Strategically, George Bush's campaign will only be deemed a success if the military strikes succeed in "smoking out" the terrorists from their tunnels and bunkers.

 War on Terrorism - Operation Enduring Freedom - The U.S. Military Campaign in Afghanistan: The Year in Review
The intense air campaign succeeded in destroying all major fixed targets by late October, but by and large enemy forces were only scattered, not eradicated.
The July 27 attack, however, was followed by an intensification of attacks on U.S. military and interim Afghan government targets that suggest the possible reorganization of al Qaeda and Taliban elements into small, decentralized fighting units employing guerilla tactics.
The challenge to the U.S. military is to devise a way to effectively combine and balance available tactics and capabilities to meet the emerging threat from re-organizing enemy forces in a developing low-intensity conflict, whether guerilla warfare or more conventional combat evolves.

 Operation Iraqi Freedom: Military Objectives Met
Accounting for the fact that military is not solely responsible for meeting these objectives, it is now clear that it has conducted a successful military campaign.
The military's primary responsibility regarding this mission objective was to remove these weapons from the physical control of the Iraqi regime so that they could be located and ultimately destroyed.
While the military may assist in the process of eliminating these weapons and associated support systems and facilities, this is task that should quickly become the responsibility of the intelligence community and technical specialists.

She was also convinced that Israel's current military campaign against Hezbollah was completely justified.
The story said that Aharoni founded the Four Mothers, the peace group that led the campaign in the late 1990s to end Israel's 18-year-long occupation of Lebanon, yet she supported the new Israeli military offensive this summer in Lebanon.

 American Civil Liberties Union : NYCLU Unveils Campaign to Defend Students' Rights
NEW YORK -The New York Civil Liberties Union launched a major campaign today to arm students with tools to resist unwanted and intrusive recruitment on their school grounds and in their homes.

The NYC DOE has also agreed to give students and their parents more time to exercise the opt-out this year, extending the opt-out period through mid-October, and to give them the option again at the beginning of each year.

 Military use of children - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Also in a practice dating back to antiquity, children were routinely taken on campaign, together with the rest of a military man's family, as part of the baggage.
This military service is voluntary, leading some to suggest that the argument turns on whether a teenager has the free will and clear mind to consent to join the army.
The United States military is based on voluntary recruitment, though minors must also must have parental permission to enlist (or permission of one's legal guardian in the absence of parents).

 Online NewsHour: Military Campaign -- December 5, 2001
After a background report, Jim Lehrer talks with three military experts about the recent U.S. casualties from "friendly fire" and future plans to attack al-Qaida's underground network in the White Mountains near Tora Bora.
We have more casualties through friendly fire right now than we do through combat, and then, second, where civilians are co-mingled with military targets, where al-Qaida or Taliban leaders, for example, bring their families in and then do military communications from there, and that adds to the civilian death toll as well.
JIM LEHRER: Mark, finally, just on the military situation on the ground, the Marines are being reported, the 1,300 Marines are down on the ground near Kandahar, 40 miles from Kandahar, supposedly, are beginning to move out now.

 Military campaign bogs down, no end in sight -DAWN - International; March 31, 2003
NEW YORK, March 30: As the American and British forces in Iraq are gearing up for a long military campaign to dislodge Saddam Hussein from power a commander of American ground forces in the war zone has conceded that the war that they are fighting is not the one they and their officers had foreseen.
The plan of “Shock and Awe” has neither produced shock nor awe and the experts and military strategists are questioning whether or not the American planners underestimated the resolve of the Iraqi people in opposing an invasion of their country.
Some retired top brass are voicing in public an opinion harboured in private by some current top military officers — that Rumsfeld’s bold vision of a sleeker, high-tech military prompted him to take unnecessary risks in the size and nature of the force sent to topple Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
