It is not generally known that Sub Saharan Africa has a long tradition of successful counter-terrorism operations. During the 1950's to 1989 many counter-terrorism operations took place in Colonial Kenya, Rhodesia and Apartheid South Africa. It is historical fact that the Security Forces almost always defeated the terrorists whilst using very limited resources. They did this by applying COIN & counter-terrorism techniques not known to the general public and in many cases rewrote the handbook on counter-insurgency.Excerpt:The moment you complete you mission objectives or find out it is not possible without committing much more resources you should leave. Generals throughout history had a tendency to build empires and always demand more soldiers. Somewhere the President must draw the line and regain control. Historically this happened in the First World War when Lloyd George, the English Prime Minister, starved the Western Front of men deliberately. He saved millions of soldiers by doing so. Of course it is all politics and the blame game. No President wants to be known not to support the Military and be open for attacks as being weak. On the other hand he should not be taken for a ride by the Military either.
