Commander s intent
Commander’s Intent

The purpose of this operation is to set conditions that allow the Iraqi people to govern and secure themselves. The decisive point is the state in which the Iraqi people and their leadership feel responsible enough to assist in reducing criminal activities and violence against coalition forces. To achieve this we must ensure we select and emplace strong Mayors, police forces and advisory councils that will hold others accountable for establishing and following laws. It is also key that Coalition forces empower and allow the administrative functions space and time to perform their duties, while also reducing tension in the communities as a result of coalition forces performing functions for the civil administration and by displaying our dominance unnecessarily. Additionally, it is important that we find innovative ways to motivate Iraqi leaders and their people to embrace responsibility for their communities. Inherent to achieving the decisive point is exhausting means to protect our forces, while also gaining the initiative to defeat the threat. We will do this by soliciting the support of Iraqi leaders, building collection cells to penetrate terrorists groups, thereby finding and removing those that are working to disrupt our objectives. Until we reach the point where the Iraqi people are apprehending the threat, we will always exert our dominance to identify and defeat known threats in our AO. At end-state Iraqi leaders feel responsible for leading their people, incidence of violence against coalition forces in our AO is reduced and Tiger Troopers are prepared to deploy safely back to Fort Carson.
