 Talk:Pincer movement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I think "double envelopment" actually refers to a two-ring pincer movement, with the inner pair of pincers intended to stop the captured units' attempts to break out and the outer pair of pincers intended to stop any outside attemts to relieve the capture units.
Secondly: As it is more commonly known as a 'pincer movement' anyway, as a quick check on google will confirm.
I moved it because the air force engages in pincer maneuvers-not movements-and because pincer movement is a political term in the US that has little to do with this topic Vera Cruz 12:43 Dec 15, 2002 (UTC)

 Counter-sniper tactics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Smoke screen: In urban settings or other environments with limited movement and fields of view, smoke can be an effective means to screen friendly movement.
This can be used either to pass through and escape, or to close in on and eliminate the enemy sniper.
Pincer movement: If the sniper's position is known but direct retaliation is not possible, a pair of squads can move through concealment (preferably cover) and drive the sniper toward the group containing the targets.

Frontal assault The military tactic of frontal assault is a direct, hostile movement of forces towards enemy forces in a large number, in an attempt to overwhelm the enemy.
Pincer movement The pincer movement (double envelopment) is a basic element of military strategy which has been used, to some extent, in nearly every war.
It's not just about covering movement with a base of fire, but it's really about pinning the enemy with one team while another maneuvers to a position to kill him from a flank (from the side).

Tactical offensive movements are those team movements, which allow you to open the offensive from a preferable position during an offensive action from the enemy.
This movement is similar to the envelopment in that you try to turn away the frontline from you fortress/base, by moving your entire team around the enemy's team.
The pursuit is an offensive movement, which has, as its objective to attack a retreating troop and keep up such a pressure that the enemy will not be able to organize an effective defensive position.

 European abortion ruling and Steel/Blair agenda part of right-to-abort pincer movement, warns SPUC
Westminster, 8 July 2004 - The Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC), Europe's largest pro-life group, warned that today's European court ruling that unborn children do not have a right to life was one part of a "pincer movement" by pro-abortion politicians, doctors and judges to enshrine abortion on demand across Europe.
It is reported that the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg ruled today that a French doctor who aborted an unborn child of six months' gestation without the mother's consent could not be prosecuted for homicide because the unborn child did not have the right to life.
Anthony Ozimic, SPUC political secretary, commented: "Pro-abortion judges are forming a pincer movement with pro-abortion politicians to abolish any legal restraints which protect unborn children from intentional killing.

 RW ONLINE:Upsurge and Massacre in Mexico, 1968   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
This movement of rebellious students was touched off on July 24 when a fight between gangs at two high schools connected with the longtime rivals, the Mexican National Autonomous University (UNAM) and National Politechnical Institute (IPN, or "Poli"), was viciously put down by antiriot police called granaderos.
In the course of and alongside all this activity, the movement wrangled over many crucial questions--from day-to-day tactics to what kind of revolution Mexico needed, what was its principal target, the role of the working class and peasants, and women's oppression.
But these rebel "sped-up" youth took the name as a badge of honor, and it was their defiance which characterized the movement and set the pace for much of the upsurge.

Tackling their huge task of recording the complete Haydn symphonies, Adam Fischer and the Austro-Hungarian orchestra are making a sort of pincer movement.
Though modern instruments are used, playing at modern pitch, the scale of the orchestra and the crispness and clarity of the playing reflect some of the lessons learned from the period movement.
I listened to this set immediately after reviewing Muti's Philips disc of Mozart symphonies (to appear next month), and the contrast was most refreshing, with sound very different from that of the Vienna Philharmonic as recorded in the great hall of the Musikverein.

 A New Strategic Focus for Progressives: The Local Green Economy
The progressive movement is realizing that merely protesting must be supplemented and eventually replaced with positive examples of our alternative system.
The traditional path for transforming the economy—followed by corporate and Marxist political parties alike—has focused on the political: you develop a political apparatus that can get control of the state, and then government agencies are used to transform the economy from the top down.
The new approach being forged by the local green economy movement is to reverse that traditional approach: get the economy organized at the grassroots level, build up from there, so that any large scale political movement (e.g., the Green Party) when it comes to power, will have already transformed the economy from the bottom up.

 [FIF] - Fédération des Industries Ferroviaires - Rail industrial sector caught in steel pincer movement
Unlike oil prices, which suffer from fluctuations dictated as much - if not more - by geopolitical parameters as by strictly-economic factors, steel prices are basically determined by economic criteria and exclusively by the law of supply and demand.
The French rail industrial sector, squeezed between an upstream steel market characterised by price explosion and incipient shortages, and a downstream market constituted by chronically-lossmaking public operators involved in programmes for drastic reductions in the procurement prices of their railway products and equipment, is well and truly caught in a pincer movement.
Given the prevailing situation, the French Railway Industry Association (FIF) takes the view that a round table between the different sector stakeholders - modelled on the event recently staged by the Ministry for Industry between the players (mechanical industry, equipment suppliers, manufacturers) of the automotive sector - must be arranged at all costs.
