MND-North Mission

Operation Iron Resolve (October 2007):

TF Iron in partnership with Iraqi Security Forces (ISF), Northern Provincial Leaders, and the Provincial Reconstruction Teams (PRTs), conducts counterinsurgency operations by supporting the security of the population and by assisting in the development of a legitimate GOI throughout MND-N in order to transition to a stable and self-reliant Iraq.

MND-N Threat

Key Conditions in Oct ‘07

External

Influence

  • Security
  • Surge in Baghdad and Anbar driving fight to MND-N
  • AQI dominant threat; organized, lethal, capable
  • Foreign Fighter and external support networks a significant influence in MND-N
  • Enemy finance, media capable & effective
  • Vast ungoverned areas, limited CF/ISF presence

Provincial Governance

  • PGov/GoI disconnect; strong perception of Shi’a bias and neglect
  • Lack of PGov capacity in Ninewa, Diyala, SaD; public confidence in PGov low
  • Iraqi Police capacity and capability low; Iraqi Army capabilities improving
  • Kurd concerns over Article 140 deadline (DEC 07)
  • Economic Stability
  • Lack of budget execution and release of funds across all provinces
  • High (60-70%) unemployment, lack of capital generation, little job or market opportunities
  • Oil and Energy Markets plagued with corruption and poor distribution linked to AQI extortion
  • Infrastructure and businesses in disrepair – bridges, roads, rails, airports, electricity, markets, farms

division observations and relationship to future training

Role of the DIV HQ

    • Task Force Iron served as an operational level HQ.
    • In line with revised FM 3.0/FM 3.07, Divisions are required to promote economics, governance, and rule of law, but have done so in the past without requisite subject matter expertise in key areas.
    • Divisions (and often Brigades) are responsible for the integration of all non-DoD actors within the area of operations.
    • There must be a distinction between the levels of the “fight” in lethal versus non-lethal operations.
    • Training Guidance must link to multiple modular units joining the organization after deployment.
  • Training
    • Redesign the BCTP training model.
    • Integrate PRT/SOF/CIA/OCFI (interagency) into DIV train-up…NOT replication, but duplicate.
    • Critical requirement to gain understanding of HN governance, economics, infrastructure, and rule of law systems beyond what is presented in our current training methods (“REACH FORWARD” with SVTC and current TF)
    • Incorporate “value chain analysis for dummies” for economic advancement.
    • IO/PA training to shape conditions in the environment
