US military operational planners would be proud of Kamala Harris & # 39; campaign strategy.
A new Quinnipiac study, published Tuesday, shows that democratic voters move safely in Harris & # 39; favour. The California Senator now tracks Joe Biden by only 2 percentage points. It is a remarkable improvement on her standing ahead of last week's democratic presidential debate. And Quinnipiac's results match with a CNN poll on Monday.
Regardless of their views on her policies, US military planners would find a lot to suffer from Harris's strategy of pursuing, seizing, and maintaining the initiative.
As the US Army Field Manual 3-0 explains, few elements of the operational effort are as crucial as those that "take the initiative through decisive use of common strength functions." This, as the manual explains, requires effort "at the earliest possible time, forcing the enemy to culminate offensively and set the conditions for decisive operations." This may need to "delay, prevent, or halt the enemy's original aggression and deny an enemy its original objective. Operations to access theater infrastructure and extend the friendly agency continue at this stage" to "break down enemy abilities with the intention of resolving the crisis as soon as possible. "
Now compare the operational principles to what Harris does.
She has certainly taken the initiative for "decisive use" of her abilities. In the debate she uses effort "at the earliest possible time, forcing the enemy to culminate offensively." Going to Biden's metaphorical jugular, Harris threw the former Vice President out of balance and changed the terms of the competition.
Biden must now fight back and reveal his own attack lines at a time when Harris chose. And Harris's aggression was in fine military form: it has certainly served to "delay, obstruct, or stop" the Bid's "original goal" to quickly secure the nomination and without much furrow.
Well, now, we can expect Harris to push hard to withdraw support from Biden and thus "gain access to theater infrastructure." In this case, this infrastructure is the establishment of the Democratic Party of organizers, activists and Donors, we can also expect Harris to continue her relentless attack on Biden's credibility in order to reduce his momentum. Her intention: to "solve" the democratic nomination fight "quickly."
That's probably the military operation. Harris's call
