Reform of the U.S. military intelligence: smart loves to learn, and the fool — to teach

Not so long ago, it became clear that the Pentagon began to reform the military intelligence. First conversion divine increase the number of employees the Defense Intelligence Agency abroad.

Over the next five years the number of operational employees DIA working in other countries, including under the cover (first diplomatic) will be increased to about 1,600. At this point in the DIA abroad there with five hundred operatives — it's just working undercover. In accordance with the plans approved by the U.S. administration, the number of "cover" will be increased by 2018 to 800 and then to 1,000.

Reform of the U.S. military intelligence: smart loves to learn, and a fool - to teach

Vpribavok U.S. Department of Defense is going to provide more interaction with the CIA, DIA, and Special Operations Command (SOCOM), the U.S. Armed Forces. According to the latest disk imaging "Washington Post", the values in the activities of the DIA from now on will be the tracking of Islamist groups in Africa, supplying North Korea and Iran weapons to other states, and, of course, the modernization of the Chinese armed forces. DIA operatives will divide tasks with tseerushnikami if the second chase in the main policy goals, the first will motivate the nuances of the military.

Expansion of State Intelligence Agency at the time of the economic crisis — this is something new for the Obama administration. But in the new solution Pentagon has some internal logic.

America will save. Specifically identified as the Pentagon, the transformation does not mean that the DIA has now new opportunities or expanded funding. Create new staff rates will come from reducing other departments and staffing configuration.

Yet plan already received from the "Washington Post" feature "ambitious." In fact, it is a frisky transformation Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defence in a special network of agents. By the way, scouts, according to the plans will be prepared by the CIA, but will be subject to the Pentagon.

In the British newspaper "The Guardian" consider, that will create a new set of agents in the world unprecedented in its scale spy network. New agents in the middle of the DIA will be the military attache and other similar persons working openly, as a huge number of spies operating in secret. "The Guardian" says that the agency

"Are increasingly hiring of teachers in the middle of civilian persons or institutions in strategic business concepts from a military point of view of the regions."

At the same time the newspaper recalls that the CIA itself too strongly to increment its own staff over the last 11 years, the Department of the CIA's counter-terrorism has expanded from 300 employees up to 2-thousand people. But the CIA … tired. They think that spies have to do a lot of tasks, and therefore with a new plan to transfer rely purely military operations extended DIA. For example, the CIA would not immediately seek lusted missiles "ground-to-air" in Libya and in parallel to evaluate the Syrian opposition forces. It's very painful.

The newspaper also shows that many in Washington progressive comrades oppose expanding arena of DIA. After all, unlike the CIA, military intelligence activities are not controlled by the Congress.

As for the economy and the reduction of the military budget the Pentagon, it appears that other carriers legislative branches of government implement election promises faster Mitt Romney, if program from Barack Obama. Recall that the House of Representatives are kept under the control of the Democrats, and most Republicans in the Senate remain.

On the days of the Senate unanimously approved a budget of "defense" department in 2013 to $ 631 billion dollars. (Obama has not yet signed it and can completely block). The Pentagon had previously requested 614 billion dollars. 526000000000 here will to "total military spending": the creation of new types of weapons, the development of modern equipment, production of guns, planes and ships, increased allowances for military personnel — 1.7% (by last Fri dopraskhody make 17 billion, hence the noticeable increase in the budget). The funds for the expansion of the DIA included in the "general expenses".

Besides officially stated goals — about North Korea's weapon, unfriendly Iran grows stronger Islamists in Africa and non-brotherly China with its rapidly modernizing army — there are those that the CIA and the Pentagon are not advertised. Namely, increasing the number of spies and the division of tasks between the CIA and the DIA — though rumovtsev will teach tseerushniki — due among the rest with a bad preparation of the first, because they often have failed surgery or made only on paper. Byword steel and bad habits of employees of military intelligence: the men constantly drunk, do not really know the language, do not really know how to recruit agents. Even to consider the documents — and it came out in their very bad. In fact, so far it is not clear that they can?

The current U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, shows Analyst Neil Nikandrov previously headed the CIA, and therefore better than anyone else, aware of the feeble sides of the DIA. Perhaps he decided that further delay reform razvedvedomstva nowhere.

At this point in the training base of the CIA in Virginia is under preparation operatives of the new unit DIA — Service undercover operations (Defense Clandestine Service, DCS). After studying South American scouts will focus on "practice" in Afghanistan, Iraq, in the "crisis of the country" in Africa and Latin America. In the five-year term, DCS will be the lead department DIA, ensuring receipt of military intelligence disk imaging.

Separate line in the American razvedplanah alarm goes China. Here General Michael Flynn, the current chief of the U.S. military intelligence, said that "it is not about cosmetic changes in the DIA, and configurations of the huge national security strategy."

For almost a year in the United States operates a document entitled «Sustaining US Global Leadership: Priorities for 21st Century Defense». In this strategy, from January 2012 stated that the strengthening of China in the long run can affect the economy and security of the United States. The main points in the received U.S. military strategy is to reduce the number of U.S. military forces in the simultaneous concentration of budget resources for the development of satellites and unmanned aircraft. The strategy also involves refocusing resources on the APR.

Obama starts and wins — that's the plan at the white houses. The strategy, reinforcing the U.S. presence in the Asia-Pacific region and the reform of the DIA — the links of one of the American chain. Today, China — the central enemy of the United States.

The latest OECD report "Looking into 2060: long-term growth prospects" noted among other things, that by 2060, the share of China and India in world GDP will surpass all 34 countries that belong to the OECD (the combined weight of 2
-betrothed countries currently stands at a little more than one-third). China to surpass European Alliance on the results already this year, and four years later would naikrupneyshey economy in the world.

United States in the world economy is still in first place, China — In the second. Washington is not going to give up positions, and China is not going to stop its own rushing full steam "locomotive". Who is to be the hegemon in the coming years — that is the question. Economics often determine the policy, and in fact in the commercial rating of China and the U.S. changed places for the last 6 years. Now China — the leading trading partner of 127 countries (for comparison: in the United States — the main partner of 76 states). China surpassed the U.S. in the markets of their strongest allies, such as Australia and South Korea. Where the U.S. retreat, China actively presses. Because trained rumovtsy may soon go to the Celestial Kingdom.

It's no secret the fact that in the geopolitics of the U.S. too quickly lose credibility. If, after the "cold war" authority Washington was virtually unquestioned, in the last decade, amid setbacks in the Middle East, the twisting of the "democratic" nuts in the country suffering from the recession, unemployment and the growth of the national debt (more than 16 trillion. Dollars) Snow-white house became cringe.

Along with that Washington is not going to turn away from its former strategy of complete dominance. Specifically military nuance to strengthen the global position of China, considers N. Nikandrov inspires the Pentagon to create a "defense in depth" structure of the DIA on the terrain of the country and in the Asia-Pacific countries:

"It should be noted that the mockery of American professionals on the secondary (" bad copies of the original ") of Chinese weapons sound more and less often. Chinese anti-satellite missile test in 2007 was a shocking surprise to the Pentagon. In the analytical reports of the DIA on this reasonably marked: China in the event of conflict with the United States will be able to bring down the system of satellite tracking and communication. Do not hesitate at the Pentagon in the "authorship" hacker intrusions into computer databases of government and financial institutions in the USA, the objects of military-industrial complex, etc. The conclusions are made alarming: China work out ways of doing electrical War. After a successful test of a new intercontinental ballistic missile, "Dongfeng-41", capable of hitting the objects on the ground the U.S., Washington's concern about the "unpredictable plans" Middle Kingdom was particularly noticeable. "

DIA did not like the fact that in recent years the strengthening of Sino-Latin American cooperation — both times in the military-technical bands. Shipments of weapons from China in the region grow betrothed. We are talking about the aircraft, amphibious ships, tanks, artillery units and the amounts in billions of dollars. That is why the destabilization of China is very crucial for the United States. And who entrust destabilization, if not spies, the CIA passed the courses and "practice" in the already destabilized regions?

As for Iran — another goal of the updated DIA — that Washington together with Tel Aviv as ever worried that Tehran is not engaged in the peaceful atom, and the implementation of programs from development and production of nuclear weapons. But Frank Kearney, Lieutenant-General of the U.S. Army, retired, recently said in a speech that war with Iran is not a lot that will decide. In his view, even a tactical strike on the Islamic Republic's nuclear facilities will not bring utility: a similar measure on time to stop the activities of Iran's nuclear research, and nothing more. Strike will not kill the nuclear forces of the country: in fact incredibly tactical measures to try to destroy the mental in store. An attack on Iran would only weaken the existing regime. And again, research in the field of nuclear technology could be thrown for a couple of years back, but in return the Iranians have an incentive to complete the development of nuclear weapons, and then even try it … to the United States. It may be added subsequently, if the Iranians did not develop until this time of nuclear weapons, the tactical shots after the Yankees or the Israelis they are sure it will work out. This theme — against the backdrop of protests against the whole of South America — the country will be very popular. If we add here the frequent demonstrations against the United States in the Muslim countries of Near East and North Africa, the geopolitical puzzle pieces will develop clearly not in favor of "Big Brother."

That is why Iran is planning to take over the forces of the DIA, whose task — to sow grain and destabilization of open shelters, a military representatives, with spies and the people they recruited. And the end result (as puzzles DIA still makes the military) may be a war with the capture of territories or "carpet bombing" — but a war with a weakened state, podtochennaya internal sabotage and terrorist attacks. That's where you need to build "real world" goals of a reformed DIA.

And of these global goals seem to be in the last days got wind of some suspicious South American senators. In the Senate there has been a movement to block the Pentagon's plan to fund hundreds of additional foreign spies. On this day, the plan has the status of "temporarily blocked".

December 11 Greg Miller ("Washington Post") said, that in-1's, senators talked about the huge dilemmas with new costs that will inevitably arise in the financing of acts of additional secret spies abroad. In-2, the senators believe that spies DIA constantly plagued woes. And razvedusiliya Department of Defense often go down the drain.

Pentagon angrily criticized for unsuccessful espionage activities, it is proposed

"Demonstrate that he can do better management of mental espionage, before embarking on the upcoming expansion."

Perhaps the Senate, which expresses profound skepticism about the alleged plan of the Pentagon, soon one hundred percent will block the expansion of staffing DIA. Finally the number of scouts will remain at last year. At the moment, from the Pentagon requested "an independent assessment of the costs" of the new spy service also plan where and when the newly recruited spies will work for the good of democracy.

In the Senate representation is a fairly long list of problems available to the Pentagon's intelligence services available, including reports that earlier investigators, trained to be "unproductive", carrying out assignments abroad.

In common parlance, Mr. senators questioned not only in the highest mind the Pentagon workers, and given to understand that the Defense Ministry is artificially bloated, not going in that report, they become engaged newly minted spies.

In the view of the Senate also said that the Armed Services Committee requests the Department of Defense to cancel any agreements reached previously with other agencies, including the CIA, who were expected to participate in the development of modern service lurking.

Not many of the Senate expressed the view that the Pentagon

"We have to do business, reducing costs, rather than leaving them on the same level or allowing increase."

Independent columnist Max Boot («Commentary»), also adjusted to the DIA skeptical considers, that

"We have quite a staff of special services, and we need to focus on improving their quality."

The Ministry of Defense has a mass of problems with "human intelligence." Here's non-lethal weapons, equipment — is, and human intelligence — no. Max Boot is critical even to the capabilities of agents DIA and other spies to influence the "Arab Spring."

The creator notes advises DIA to a completely different reform: to cut a thick layer of bureaucracy in the department, to change the bosses and hire a professional and intelligent people in the ranks of intelligence — first those who are familiar with foreign cultures and languages knows. In the meantime, of course, that the DIA only means to expand the existing bureaucracy, and this, says the journalist is unacceptable.

So Makar, the Senate and the press remembered that, as previously read in America was somehow not accepted. Washington previously taught wits entire planetoid, and now, you see, it is time to understand the truth of the Russian proverb — one that loved to repeat Anton Pavlovich Chekhov: smart loves to learn, and the fool — to teach. While always drunk and stoned South American spies filled up operations in Afghanistan and found a bio weapon in Iraq, Our homeland did not reckon with the will of the white houses, and China has increased in economic and military terms, so that any new strategy, it will not frighten. Especially since such, which completely missing an important component: the mind.
