There is a way to fight guerillas and insurgents and we are now doing it in Iraq. The only problem is that you lose troops doing it, not always but you do lose them. And to try and not cause much collateral damage (civilian casualties) you have to get in there and fight, no major air strikes or carpet bombing. Once you have troops embedded in the mix of it you start to lose some. Then you get the negative media spin and people start bad mouthing the war causing troops morale to lower. And that is probably what these guerillas want cause once morale goes done our fighting force is not as effective as it can be and the guerillas have served their purpose.

In my opinion we need to stay in our fortified positions over there and stop patrolling the cities for awhile and let all the folks that don't want us there understand that we do have a purpose and then they will probably be more willing to cooperate with us to get our jobs done and not suffer as many casualities.

Well the only problem with fortified positions is that you have no overall control on situation.......

As far as the US military is concerned, yes.

SOF includes all Special Operatoins Units/Groups. SF, Special Forces, is a specific title given to a specific Special Operations Group, like Navy SEALs, Air Force CCTs .. etc.
