Online Scheduling Helping Service Men and Women To win a war, your actions have to be precise and well thought out. A Sloppy performance could mean the difference between winning a battle with the advantage of surprise and giving the enemy enough warning to get ready for you. A great example of military precision bringing success in a war situation is the capturing of Osama Bin Laden on May 2, 2011. A Pakistani doctor, Shakil Afridi, knew the whereabouts of the famous leader of the Al Qaeda terrorists.
Information He betrayed that intelligence to the U.S. government, allowing them the opportunity to accomplish their decade long pursuit of capturing the man behind the dreaded 9/11 attacks. The military prepared a plan of action. Their plan was to take a few of the countryâ€™s finest SEAL teams and land them by helicopter into the compound purported to be the current residence of Bin Laden and his family. The seals were then on a time crunch to get into the house and make their move before he had the chance to escape. Every move was carefully calculated to infiltrate the premise in just under 40 minutes. SEALs studied the plan until they knew it back to front and got ready to put it into motion. The morning of the 2nd arrived and the SEALs were ready to go. They hoped into the helicopters and got to work. As soon as they had landed, they were on the ground running, surrounding the compound and penetrating. Within 40 minutes they had cleared out two building in search of Bin Laden. They found him and he began to give battle. The SEALs quickly took him down and took him back to the helicopters. This military victory marked the end of a very long war against Al Qaeda. It was executed with precision planning and professional work.
