Article - What I Learned from ANSF

Carl Forsling, in an article about his time spent with a battalion of the Afghan Border Police (ABP), writes about what he learned from the Afghan security forces. In Everything I Really Need to Know I learned from Afghan Security Forces, Task & Purpose, March 31, 2015 he makes the following observations.

  • There is such a thing as too much planning
  • Risk is part of war
  • Speed and mobility can be force protection
  • Minimize logistical requirements
  • Aggressiveness can make up for a lack of skill
  • Don't be afraid to leave a subordinate in charge
  • Uneducated does not mean stupid
  • No better friend. No worse enemy
  • Always make time for tea
