For decades, we have called them rebels, freedom fighters. Now, we have elevated some to the level of domestic and global terrorists. In the end, they are all insurgents that have not been properly handled with a well-defined counter-insurgency (COIN) strategy.
Broadly stated, any counter-insurgency (COIN) strategy stresses the need to protect civilian populations, eliminate/neutralize insurgent leadership, along with its infrastructure, and establish a legitimate and accountable government able to deliver essential administrative services to the local populace. Sadly, most COIN strategies are not drafted by the host-nation, rather they are devised and implemented by foreign governments attempting to curry favor with weak, undemocratic governments for natural resources or geopolitical interests.
At CommandEleven, living in a country that is continually fighting against insurgencies, both natural and manufactured, we understand insurgencies. We also understand how regional and international intelligence agencies use proxy warfare within neighboring countries. Pakistan is a masterclass on COIN tactics, methodologies and strategies.
Our COIN strategies take into account the on-ground realities with the population, culture, historical influences and religious motivation, coupling them with the ability of the government and armed forces to deliver across the board on all objectives.
We implement solutions, not politics.
