30 Transformation Through Training Issue No 7 July 2015 threat breaks through this data and concatenates the strings of intelligence to the degree whereby access and response times on the ground become more manageable. Through a process of working from both ends of the strings from the terrorist to the target and from the target to the terrorist it not only identifies the source of the threat and target but the likely outcome. This reflects a very new way of understanding the tangible threat to the UK and mobilizing against it concentrating resources on both the terrorist and the target as opposed to any intangible enemy. It also enables practitioners on the ground to tap into real time intelligence that reflects the human terrain. By defragmenting the exposure and experience of the returnees the sanctuaries within the terrorists communities and the terrain of the targets the Prevent and Protect strands of the Contest Policy would be seen not only to be dated but to have fundamental flaws in their ability to counter Islamic fundamentalism. There are 3 major components to the process 1. Defragmenting the threat from returnees their competencies 2. Defragmenting the threat from their communities their constituencies and 3. Defragmenting the threat to their targets their proficiencies. The mechanics of the defensive strands of the policy are hence primarily based on an analysis of the terrorists competencies in asymmetrical warfare and the levels of proficiency that would be required to attack targets in the United Kingdom. The delivery of that intelligence and the objectives of the mission would be achieved through control of the sanctuaries within their communities and the castle-building of allegiances throughout them by A Concatenating the individual historic bonds of allegiance that exist between the immigrant populations of Great Britain and the Crown. i.e. locating linking and connecting values that are fixed and compatible with not mainstream politics or social norms but allegiance to the Crown. B Taking political responsibility for the immediate mobilisation and protection of any community that has been targeted by a foreign force through 1. The enforcement of grass- roots democracy via a policy of political economic and social subsidiarity that isolates Islamic Issues from Muslim Issues. 2. Handling Muslim Issues at their lowest geographical and demographic level of organisation and dealing with social problems at the most immediate point of contact. 3. Reconfiguring the political landscape by capitalising on the dissipated energy of internal conflict sectarian competition and the extant fault lines of nationality Somali Bengali Pakistani etc. religion Shia Sunni Ahmadi etc. and politics Jihad-nationalists Jihadi-trans-nationalists etc.. 4. Investing economically in allegiance and encouraging political and social aspirations that reinforce the new status quo. 5. Germination of the human product and recycling of the social product. i.e. the exposure and engagement of insurgent forces by dividing the militants into multiple antagonistic sectarian factions and forcing their communities into taking public irrevocable and irrecoverable stances on position and family. C Enabling those communities targeted to reconstruct around the key components of mainstream institutions by a strengthening in the Covenant between Her Majestys Armed Forces and the nation. i.e. a demonstrable experienceable return on the defence budget through a radical transformation of civil-military relations both at home and abroad. PART V The New Covenant Civil-Military Relations That the end of the Cold War reignited colonial tribal and religious conflict that had been dormant for generations has been well documented. That it gave birth to the extremism and ethno-nationalist terrorism of the Muslim world and is the legacy of 70 years of repressive dictatorial regimes and the political economic and social ramifications of globalization regional alliances and the diminishing power of nation-states is less established. However in the context that the wastelands of Islam were abandoned in the wake of the Soviet Empire the rise of Salafi-Jihad and the race to reverse the perceived onslaught of such powers is far from surprising. In this sense whether the threat emanates from radicalized Western based converts lone wolves Al Qaeda Central AQAM Islamic State or the Leaderless Jihad is a moot point for any attack on the West is but one more front in what is an ongoing war on a much larger battlefield than the homelands of the British Isles. It is hence of great importance that any drive to reverse the threat to the UK recognizes the global nature of the threat is international in scope and driven by the military protecting the United Kingdom from trans-national conflict and securing the communities held hostage by British militants are but one and the same. The consequences of maintaining the status quo and failing to utilize the mandate of the Armed Forces to protect the country at home and abroad are the increasing para-militarization of non-military forces and to the
