Buppert: On Auftragstaktik

Buppert sends:

Great compilation of Auftragstaktik or Mission Command vignettes from history:

“The crossing of the Meuse shows mission command at its best. The Germans were able to adjust and synchronize their operations because of the flexibility afforded them by their system of issuing orders. This was particularly reflected in the adoption of a plan previously used in an exercise as the framework under which the river crossing was executed. In his memoirs, Field Marshal Erich von Manstein, the man who as Army Group chief of staff had created the campaign plan used at Sedan, remarked on the German Army’s use of mission command as follows, “Individual leadership was fostered on a scale unrivaled in any other army right down to the most junior NCO or infantryman and in this lay the secret of our success.”

The Six Principles of Mission Command
1. Build Cohesive Teams through Mutual Trust
2. Create Shared Understanding
3. Provide a Clear Commander’s Intent
4. Exercise Disciplined Initiative
5. Use Mission Orders
6. Accept Prudent Risk

“Unobtrusive indicators of the “good [combat] officer”

Distrust any officer with a perfect or near perfect record of efficiency reports. He is conforming to the existing value system and will have no interest in changing it.

Look carefully at a man who gets low marks on “tact” and who “deviates from accepted doctrine.” He may be creative.

An officer who gets low marks on loyalty is especially valuable, for he is unwilling to acquiesce to his superior’s policies without debate. He is likely to have an independent mind.

Be suspicious of any officer who has accumulated awards for valour without having sustained physical injury. Trust a Purple Heart wearer.

Distrust any officer who has had “all his tickets punched” and who sports an array of staff awards on his chest. He is likely to be a manager playing the system.

Distrust all officers who use “buzz words” and have a poor vocabulary. They tend to be managers of the most obsequious type. True leadership is likely to be foreign to them.

Trust a man who heads for the sound of the guns and has repeated tours of combat and command duty at all unit levels; it is preferable that he have only minimal exposure to staff work.

Trust an officer who was seen by his men in combat and whose command performed well and showed low rates of drug use, fragging, body counting, etc.

Search for the officer whose readiness reports indicate a high percentage of equipment which is deficient. He is a man addicted to the truth.”

Part II

Key questions from Part I:

***
…Why is this happening at this point in history? Why is the average American economically worse off today than they were at the height of the economic crisis in 2009? Why is the Cold War returning with a vengeance? Why is the Federal Reserve still employing emergency monetary policies when we are supposedly five years into a recovery and the stock market has attained record highs? Why do the ECB and European politicians continue to paper over the insolvency of their banks and governments? Why did the U.S. support the ouster of a dictator we supported for decades in Egypt and then support the elevation of a new dictator after we didn’t like the policies of the democratically elected president? Why did the U.S. eliminate the leader of Libya and allow the country to descend into anarchy and civil war? Why did the U.S. fund and provoke a revolutionary overthrow of a democratically elected leader in the Ukraine? Why did the U.S. fund and arm Al Qaeda associated rebels in Syria who are now fighting our supposed allies in Iraq? Why has the U.S. been occupying Afghanistan for the last thirteen years with the result being a Taliban that is stronger than ever? Why are the BRIC countries forming a monetary union to challenge USD domination? Why is the U.S. attempting to provoke Russia into a conflict with NATO?

Why is the U.S. government collecting every electronic communication made by every American? Why is the U.S. government spying on world leader allies? Why is the U.S. government providing military equipment to local police forces? Why is the U.S. military conducting training exercises within U.S. cities? Why is the U.S. government attempting to restrict Second Amendment rights? Why is the U.S. government attempting to control and lockdown the internet? Why has the U.S. government chosen to treat the Fourth Amendment as if it is obsolete? Why is the national debt still rising by $750 billion per year ($2 billion per day) if the economy is back to normal? Why have 12 million working age Americans left the workforce since the economic recovery began? How could the unemployment rate be back at 2008 levels when there are 14 million more working age Americans and the same number employed as in 2008? Why are there 13 million more people on food stamps today than there were at the start of the economic recovery in 2009? Why have home prices risen by 25% since 2012 when mortgage applications have been at fourteen year lows? Why are Wall Street profits and bonuses at record highs while the real median household income stagnates at 1998 levels?

Why do 98% of incumbent politicians get re-elected when congressional approval levels are lower than whale shit? Why are oil prices four times higher than they were in 2003 if the U.S. is supposedly on the verge of energy independence? Why do the corporate controlled mainstream media choose to entertain and regurgitate government propaganda rather than inform, investigate and seek the truth? Why do corporations and shadowy billionaires control the politicians, media, judges, and financial system in their ravenous quest for more riches? Why has the public allowed a privately owned bank to control our currency and inflate away 96% of its value in 100 years? Why have American parents allowed their children to be programmed and dumbed down by government run public schools? Why have Americans allowed themselves to be lured into debt in an effort to appear wealthy and successful? Why have Americans permitted their brains to atrophy through massive doses of social media, reality TV, iGadget addiction, and a cultural environment of techno-narcissism? Why have Americans lost their desire to read, think critically, question authority, act responsibly, defer gratification, and care about future generations? Why have Americans sacrificed their freedoms, liberties and rights for the false expectation of safety and security? Why will we pay dearly for our delusional, materialistic, debt financed idiocy?…

UPDATE 0922EDT 31 JULY 2014: A reader sends:

An under reported fact here in politically correct land is that Patrick Sawyer from MN was visiting his sister Princess, who had recently DIED OF EBOLA. He then boarded two planes and proceeded to kill others through his contact with them. I suspect he has managed to kill a few who were simply trying to help a sick man.

No doubt some who were on the plane with him will be infected as well. Today’s humanitarian award goes to the Pat.

Article which identifies the sister’s illness at the top:

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/ebola-doctors-told-prepare-global-3933249

Patrick’s first victim now sick in hospital:

Pat’s final hours in Lagos, Indiscipline, Rage, Strange:

http://frontpageafricaonline.com/index.php/news/2506-sawyer-s-final-hours-in-lagos-indiscipline-rage-strange

The article on this douchebag’s final hours is particularly important.

SNAFU: A man traveling from an Ebola affected area, collapses post-flight in a city of 21 million after showing signs of the illness. Mr. Sawyer was allowed to board an ASKY Airlines flight in Liberia, where Ebola is rife, despite vomiting and suffering from ­diarrhea.

TARFU: He had a stopover in Ghana then changed planes in Togo and flew to the international travel hub of Lagos in Nigeria where he collapsed. He is asked by medical staff if he had contact with anyone having Ebola (he lies about his dead sister).

FUBAR: The hospital staff do not quarantine him. He is treated for his symptoms. 24 hours later he is confirmed as having Ebola.

It’s pretty clear that Ebola is likely loose in Nigeria’s largest city of 21 million. How many people did this guy contact, really? How many did they contact? Why is that important?

It’s the R0, that’s why (said “are naught”).

Think of R0 as the ability of the disease to reproduce within its community of hosts. Measles, for example, had an R0 of near 18, making it highly transmissible. The higher the R0, the more dangerous the bugs ability to spread. It’s a pretty complicated theoretical exercise since it’s a multi-variate mathematical model, or restated, YMMV. As with all models, assumptive inputs are critically important.

That said, we know that ebola is typically described with an R0 of 0-4 meaning that for every person infected 3 others will also be infected given time. What is not typically reported is that in some Ebola outbreaks, the R0 has been as high as 8. We also know that Ebola has never been seen in a city as large as Lagos.

We know that during the later stages of the illness the rate of infection to contacts seems to increase, meaning old Pat Sawyer was a human hand grenade on a plane that was headed to an international air hub in a city of 21 million.

Here’s some math on R0 to hurt your mind with:

Minnesota Pat Sawyer, of Liberia who was planning to visit his
daughter back home in Coon Rapids, MN traveled puking and coughing
on a plane with a bunch of folks then got off the plane and
collapsed. Here is a little breakdown on contacts after the flight
(no mention made of the plane load of people he flew with:

“The persons include 44 contacts at the hospital he was taken to,
38 of which were health workers and six laboratory staff; 15
contacts at the airport, comprising three Ecowas officials – a
driver, a liaison officer and a protocol officer. Others include
two nursing staff, five airport handlers and the Nigerian
ambassador to Liberia.”

On the ground at the West African epicenter’s things are spiraling
rapidly (see below). Liberia is a hell hole on a good day:

Dead Bodies: Health Ministry Failing to Pick up Abandoned Bodies – Liberia

Monrovia – Following the government of Liberia’s declaration of a
national health emergency in the face of the deadly Ebola outbreak
that has killed close to 130 Liberians and an entire government
ministry at risk because of an employee that died of the deadly
disease in Nigeria, there have been reports of dead bodies lying
around with no effort by the ministry of health to remove them.

Over the lake that divides the police academy road from the rest of
the SKD Boulevard community two objects in the shape of body bags
white in color were afloat. Residents and motorists were concerned
about the floating object, but all efforts made to contact the
health ministry to confirm what the object actually is proved
futile as no health response team showed up to remove the object
that looked like the body bag in which Ebola victims are buried.

In Harbel, Margibi County it was reported that three persons had
died in a house, but the corpses were still in the house three days
after. The Gardnersville community was a scene of chaos and
confusion as youth blocked the main highway because a corpse had
been abandoned for five days and had started to decay.

snip

The government had reported that burial teams were facing
challenges in burying people who die from the deadly virus as many
communities are concerned about people who die from the virus being
buried in their areas.

snip

Now that people are reporting that dead bodies are lying around, it
is a huge concern that the ministry is not doing anything to remove
these bodies. When FrontPageAfrica contacted Deputy Health Minister
Dr. Bernice Dahn on Tuesday, she said she could not talk because
she was busy collecting bodies and trying to place sick people on
beds.

Loosing Ebola Fight

It seems at the high level the government is losing its wits on how
to deal with the deadly virus that has claimed 129 lives including
that of a government official. Sources say it is obvious that the
Government is playing catch-up with measures to curb the deadly
virus in a meeting held recently.

According to sources, Deputy Minister of Health Dr. Bernice Dahn at
the meeting said the Ebola treatment center in ELWA hospital in
Monrovia is overcrowded as there are 25 Ebola patients at the
center, which is created for 18 persons and it included the two
American doctors. The center is the only Ebola treatment facility
in the center in Monrovia and the community is resisting the
expansion of the unit.

Dr. Dahn said the Health Ministry called the Defense Ministry
asking for support, but they did not come. Local staff of the
ministry is afraid because the two expats got sick, they may get
the virus. For that reason, some did not come to work on Tuesday.
She told the meeting that the government needs to recruit staff to
train in order to send back to JFK hospital.

She said in Lofa County, the staff from the Foya Ebola Treatment
center was attacked and their vehicle destroyed by community
members when they went to pick up an Ebola patient adding that this
has led expat staff to feeling unsecured. Dr. Dahn also said the
Samaritans Purse has pulled out of the Foya site and that in
Montserrado County, “the work is becoming overwhelming.” Bomi
County is said to also be experiencing a serious outbreak.

The deputy health minister is also said to have informed the
meeting that more facilities are needed and that health workers who
have gotten the disease are getting it in hospitals, not the
treatment centers.

Turning patients away

Kendall Kauffeldt of Samaritan’s who’s been in Liberia for 10 years
and considers it home, said after the second wave of Ebola hit
them, they quickly realized there are limited resources to
adequately contain this disease. He said, though they have been
trained by MSF to handle Ebola it’s a “heavy load on their
shoulders and at this point” and this crisis is “beyond a disaster
in my opinion.” and that we are still “dealing with the tip of the
iceburg at this point.” He said there needs to be a strong
international plea for help as their centers in Foya and Monrovia
are both full.

Kauffeldt disclosed that ELWA which was made for 18 now has 25 and
they are now turning patients away today because there’s no room in
the center. He said in Foya they receive daily threats and expats
have been held hostage, and their vehicles destroyed. Insecurity
makes it almost impossible, as does a lack of resources and
international support, and not enough trained staff to help tackle
the disease at the treatment centers.

“We can no longer safely operate,” the centers, and at this point
they are putting their staff at great risk,” he said in the
meeting. He said some healthcare workers are not showing up to work
because they are scared, adding, “our involvement is costing our
lives.”

He said they can no longer participate in the Case Management
Centers (CMC’s) and said: “we truly wish we could.” Medecins Sans
Frontiers Country Director Lindis Hurum said that MSF would not
leave Liberia adding that she told the government 5 weeks ago that
Liberia needed immediate attention. “We are not without limits.”

She said only Samaritans Purse helped when they asked the
international community for help. Hurum said MSF does not have
enough doctors, nurses or sanitation specialists. “Without that it
is unsafe to run a treatment center,” she said.

“It’s almost unthinkable that we can say we can’t do anything in
Liberia… I don’t know how we can help you…this is beyond MSF,
it’s an international issue. We can’t treat them, in a few weeks
“those 50 could be 300.”

Government officials are panicking

Liberian government officials are panicking after the death of
Sawyer and the measures taken by the ministry of Finance to
lockdown the ministry in an effort to counter imminent danger the
presence of the late Sawyer may have caused during his last days
there. General Services Agency Director-General Mary Broh announced
the closure of the General Services Agency. She told Hott FM on
Monday that she took the decision to enable her staffers remain
home until the outbreak of the virus subsides. A visit at the GSA
noticed a depleted entity with only security officers assigned at
the main entrance.

Also at the National Oil Company of Liberia, it was reported that
entity also temporarily shut down, but Cyrus Badio, Vice President
for Public Relations could not be reached for comment as his phone
rang endlessly. At nearly all government ministries and agencies,
buckets are situated in front of entrances and visitors are
compelled by security guards to wash their hands before entry.

Partial border closure

On Sunday the Liberian government announced a series of measures
meant to tackle the outbreak that has resulted in the death of 127
Liberians. The President ordered that all borders of Liberia would
be closed with the exception of the major entry points, including
the Roberts International Airport, James Spriggs Payne Airport,
Foya Crossing, Bo Waterside Crossing, Ganta Crossing.

“At these entry points, preventive and testing centers will be
established, and stringent preventive measures to be announced will
be scrupulously adhered to,” says President Johnson Sirleaf.

“A new travel policy by the Liberia Airport Authority covering
inspection and testing of all outgoing and incoming passengers will
be strictly observed; restrictions on public gatherings such as
solidarity marches, demonstrations, promotional advertisement are
to be restricted; Hotels, restaurants, entertainment centers and
video clubs are to play five-minute film on Ebola awareness and
prevention.”

The President stated that Government vehicles will be commandeered,
as appropriate, to provide needed logistics support to the health
delivery system and all Government facilities and public places are
to install and provide public access for washing of hands and other
sanitization services. Standing Orders have also been given to the
Security Forces, including the Armed Forces of Liberia, to give
support to the Technical Team and the Task Force in enforcing these
regulations according to the President.

US Embassy meets Citizens

The United States Embassy in Monrovia held a meeting with US
citizens on Tuesday and told them that the disease has not reached
the kind of critical level that would require an evacuation. US
citizens who attended the meeting confided in FPA after the
gathering stating that they were angry because of the way the
Embassy is handling their concerns on the disease and a possible
exit strategy.

—————–
They are “monitoring” 20 or so people that flew with Sawyer, 53 are
“not being monitored” because they bolted when they realized what
would happen (quarantine).

Ministry of Health and Sanitation, Sierra Leone
18 hours ago
Ministry of Health and Sanitation

Ebola outbreak update: As of today, 26th July 2014, we have 116 cumulative number of survivors, 458 confirmed Ebola cases and 153 Ebola confirmed deaths. 82 patients are currently admitted at the Ebola treatment centers in Kenema and Kailahun.

The Ministry of Health & Sanitization and the World Health Organization have established a dedicated Ebola Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at the WHO Country Office in Freetown. The EOC is co-Directed by the Minister of Health, Ms. Miata Kargbo and the WHO Representative for Sierra Leone, Dr. Jacob Mufunda and consists of leaders and partners involved in our fight against Ebola.

The EOC will serve as the Sierra Leone National Central Command and Control Center for Outbreak Response activities and meets every day. The EOC members under the leadership of the Honourable Minister of Health and Sanitation unanimously decided at the July 24th 2014 meeting that the following actions be effected immediately:

• That the World Health Organisation (WHO) and MSF to take over the management of the Kenema treatment center
• WHO and MSF to bring more experts to run the treatment center in Kenema

The WHO Director General, Margaret Chan has upgraded the Ebola response in West Africa to a Grade 3, the highest level of any emergency response. A Grade 3 involves a multiple country event with a substantial public health consequence that requires a substantial WHO country office response and substantial international partner response. This means partners could deploy resources from other countries into the region

The EOC wishes the general public and all partners working in the healthcare sector to know that Dr. Sheikh Umar Khan is responding well to treatment.

CDC Interim Ebola Exposure Guidance For Airlines, Flight Crews

In addition, the Ministry of Health of Nigeria has reported the first probable case of EVD. According to the Nigeria authorities, the case is a 40-year-old Liberian male national who recently travelled to Nigeria where he presented in hospital with symptoms of EVD. The patient travelled by air and arrived in Lagos, Nigeria, on 20th July via Lomé, Togo. He was symptomatic while traveling, and was admitted to a private hospital immediately on arrival and died on 25 July. On 22 July, a sample was taken and preliminary laboratory analysis was conducted in the virology laboratory of Lagos University Teaching Hospital and tested positive for Ebola virus. The sample from this case is being referred to the WHO Collaborating Centre at the Institut Pasteur in Dakar, Senegal, for confirmation. The national authority in Nigeria is working closely with WHO and partners to ensure that this incident case is contained at the source.

Sure glad Lagos isn’t a major African hub for international flights.
