22 Transformation Through Training Issue No 7 July 2015 the threat by defragmenting it and thus accelerating the end-game. Defragmentingisaliberalmuscular response to the threat that works by 1 concatenating the individual historic bonds of allegiance that exist between the immigrant populations of Great Britain and the Crown and 2 taking political responsibility for the immediate mobilisation and protection of any community that has been targeted by a foreign force. In short the exposition of non-contiguous threats to the United Kingdom by the extraction of front-line populations from the theatre of potential conflict and the overwriting of any extant political content that is exploitable. Such an initiative compacted and protected by a strengthening in the Covenant between Her Majestys Armed Forces and the nation would enable those communities targeted to reconstruct around the key components of mainstream institutions and build a better more secure liberally orientated integrated and united Kingdom. The paper is presented in five parts Part I is an analogical discussion on the general threat and why the phenomenon is rooted in a transnational insurgency and not extremism how the United Kingdom has been targeted by a foreign enemy as a frontline in a global asymmetrical war and why military led counter- insurgency measures are needed on the home-front. Part II contests the strategy of a generational struggle it is argued that this policy will lead to the para-militarization of militant forces the polarization of Muslim communities and a surge in apocalyptic behaviour and treasonous rhetoric. Part III demonstrates why counter- terrorism measures underestimate and exacerbate the threat from militants in the United Kingdom - the implications for the country and the consequences of misinterpreting state- sponsored espionage sabotage and acts of insurgency as acts of terrorism. Part IV proposes that to reverse the politicization and radicalization of British nationals Muslim and non- Muslim the threat needs to be defragmented. Part V propounds the use of Her Majestys Armed Forces to protect the communities held hostage by British militants and through a revised Covenant with the nation transforming the countrys relationship with the international community. PART I Wild Geese Jackals La Menace Gnrale This paper concurs with the governments assessment of the threat as severe and that an attack on the interests and assets of the United Kingdom is highly likely. It is argued that this is not due to extremism but a lack of investment in the Crown the institutions of the Commonwealth and Her Majestys Armed Forces the metamorphosis of Islamic State Al Qaedas chrysalis and the aggregation and mobilisation of Muslim organizations and non-violent extremists into powerful social and political constructs. In brief it is because British militants are in the process of re-positioning their forces from the well-defined battlefields of contemporary state-sponsored terrorism and subversion to the relatively unknown quantities of 21st century insurgency warfare. It is concluded that to counter the threat demonstrable public acts of allegiance to the Queen and the celebration of historical deeds of incontrovertible and abiding loyalty by Muslims to the institutions of the state are key. The monarchy and the shared history of the nation are seen as not only fundamental to stifling the dissent and sedition but as evidenced in the United Kingdoms battle for the allegiance of British Catholics reversing it. In short qualifications on allegiance to the Crown are not unprecedented in the United Kingdom and there are political historical and theological parallels from which to derive policy. The history of Catholic emancipation and the lighting of bonfires is but one. Indeed the hundreds of thousands of Catholics who have worn a Kings uniform over the centuries epitomize this analogy and clearly demonstrate what can be achieved by the encompassing nature of the British Crown and its unique ability to transcend politics and religion and consolidate the diverse and often competing identities of its nationals were a Papist power to threaten British interests today there would be no question as to the loyalty of the countrys six million strong Catholic population. This achievement is not because of Shakespeare Rome or the stigma of historic acts of terrorism and insurrection but for the majority of Catholics centuries of allegiance patriotism and military service to a shared ideal a history and a constitutional compromise which has culminated in an identity that today eclipses the boundaries of race religion and politics. Although the allegiance of British Catholics has involved a series of tumultuous periods of internal strife this in no way implies as with the generational struggle against British Jihadists that the potential for treason was countered through any protracted policy of attrition. Indeed whilst the banner of anointed princes may indeed seem to have been obsoleted by time alone in hindsight and usurped and supplanted by the comparative irony of their historical predilection for terror and political zealotry this is not the case - it was the culmination of the direct and immediate deployment of
