This paper analyzes how the United States' Brigade S3 has initiated varied measures to counter the global problem of suicide bombing. The paper discusses the offering of support to the Afghan national security forces, the encouraging of other Muslim nations to offer reconstruction and security support to Afghanistan, and the upholding of the dignity and honor of the Afghans through a reduction of civilian casualties. The paper asserts that these timely measures will see a reduction in the Afghan and Palestinian cases of suicide bombing, and recommends that Brigade S3 should continue to cooperate with the Afghan government and enter into multilateral agreements with other nations.


From the Paper:

"With the end of the Cold War, the US forces have been deeply engaged in military operations with brigades and battalions conducting global post combat and peace support operations. This new paradigm in the army has caused significant changes in their coordination and execution of information operations. With the launch of GWOT, it was necessary for the US forces to coordinate with the international community in their peace keeping operations. Among the major successes realized include increased border security, disrupting terror organizations, such as al-Qaida and the capturing and killing of individuals of high value. In Afghanistan, the Brigade S3 has arraigned the responsibility to execute, plan, assess and coordinate information operations to lower levels of the organizational chain. This was due to the increased demand of lowly ranked officers to support imminent operations in Iraq.
"Besides the September 11, 2001 attack on the US, acts of terrorism across the globe were on the increase, especially in the Middle East countries such as Afghanistan, Palestine and Iraq. Karzai (2006) postulates that on September 9, 2001, a leader of the Northern Alliance was assassinated by two al-Qaida members. In 2005, the group carried more attacks with the capital Kabul and the southern city Kandahar being the primary targets. 2006 was also characterized by even more suicide attacks, with the number increasing from 21 in the previous year to 118."
