Sample text

This chapter presents four concepts to accomplish key joint operational tasks in a notional future peace operation. However, before discussing these narrower concepts of engagement, we first want to briefly discuss a broader concept of operations into which these narrower concepts fit. S. forces should attack enemy forces through all phases of their operations, including movement (deployment into an area of operations and maneuver within that area), hiding, and firing. If enemy forces are attacked when they move, their commanders will presumably try to hide.

Chapter Three CONCEPTS TO DETECT AND DEFEAT ELUSIVE MANEUVER FORCES In the preceding chapter, we used the NATO experience in Kosovo to illustrate the difficulty of finding and defeating elusive maneuver forces exclusively with aerospace forces. Although current air forces might be used more efficiently against such targets, they are unlikely to achieve significant operational or strategic effects.

But the KLA soon expanded its operations within Kosovo, and Yugoslav forces intensified their operations against the KLA, accompanied as before by violence against civilians. On January 15, 1999, Yugoslav forces massacred at least 45 men and boys near the village of Racak. KVM monitors arrived at the site the following day and found corpses strewn through the woods, most dead from head wounds. In response to the Racak massacre, the NATO allies and the Contact Group,8 including Russia, persuaded Yugoslavia and representatives of the Kosovar Albanians to meet at Rambouillet in February.
