8 MPAT TE-4 Singapore 18-23 August 2002 The purpose of the TE-4 scenario is to support our discussions on crisis action planning procedures, and provide a framework for mission analysis, courses of action development and selection of a course of action to recommend to the Coalition Task Force commander.The scenario involves a crisis between two fictitious countries, requiring a U.N. sanctioned multinational force response. In addition, there are significant humanitarian assistance needs that must be met.SCENARIO
9 GEOGRAPHY SAMAGALAND AUSTRALIA TINDORO Samagaland is a country which is located on the eastern portion of the Australiasian continent.Tindoro is the island located south of the Samagaland mainland. North Tindoro is a province of Samagaland. South Tindoro is an independent country.AUSTRALIATINDORO
10 SAMAGALAND Eastern Australasian continent and northern Tindoro Island Population 13,895,000; heavily urbanizedSelf sufficient in foodMajor exporter of wheat, dairy, woolSubstantial Industrial baseJan-Feb: 20 degrees C (68 degrees F)Jun-Jul: 10 degrees C (50 degrees F)Federal parliamentary democracyThe Republic of Samagaland encompasses the eastern portion of the Australasian continent and the northern portion of the island of Tindoro. North Tindoro encompasses approximately forty percent of the island of Tindoro and is one of four provinces of Samagaland. The other three are New South Wales, Queensland, and VictoriaThe total population of Samagaland is 13,895,000, of which 115,000 are in North Tindoro. Samagaland is heavily urbanized. Approximately 85 percent of the population lives in cities. Launceston is the capital and major city of North Tindoro and is located near the head of the tidal estuary of the Tamar River. It is also the major freight center of the country. Devenport, Burnie and Ulverstone are other important towns.Tindoro island is very mountainous, with a central plateau and a network of lacks and rivers. North Tindoro has a substantial coastal plain in the northwest portion.January and February are the warmest months, with average temperatures varying between 18° and 21° C (65° and 70° F). June and July are the coldest months, with an average July temperature of about 10° C (about 50° F). Combined with Tindoro’s fast-flowing rivers, the rain creates ideal conditions for hydroelectric power generation.Samagaland is an outstanding producer of primary products. The country is self-sufficient in almost all foodstuffs and is a major exporter of wheat, meat, dairy products, and wool.Samagaland is a federal parliamentary democracy. The constitution of Samagaland, which became effective in 1901, is based on British parliamentary traditions, and includes elements of the United States system. The head of state and the head of government is the prime minister, who is responsible to Parliament. All powers not delegated to the federal government are reserved to the provinces. Samagaland has four provinces: New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, and North Tindoro.
11 SAMAGALAND NORTH TINDORO One of four provinces of SamagalandArea: 27,800 sq km (10,500 sq mi)Mountainous with large coastal plain in northwestPopulation: 115,000Capital and major city: LauncestonEconomic mainstay: farming, some industryHydroelectric powerFederal parliamentary democracyNorth Tindoro is one of four provinces of Samagaland, and has an area of 27,800 square km (10,500 sq miles)North Tindoro is mountainous with a substantial coastal plain in the northwest.The population is approximately 115,000.Launceston is the capital and major city. Other major towns include Devonpor, Burnie and Ulverstone.North Tindoro has traditionally relied on its farming for economic development. Wool, hops, vegetables, beef, lambs, and dairy products are mainstays of the economy. Industry, assisted by inexpensive hydroelectric power, includes electrolytic zinc mills, paper mills, and a large confectionery factory. Launceston is the primary manufacturing center in North Tindoro.North Tindoro, like the other provinces of Samagaland, has an elected provincial governor and legislature, and an independent judicial system.
12 SOUTH TINDORO Covers south and eastern portion of island Area: 40,700 sq km (15,700 sq mi)Mountainous with small coastal plain in northeastPopulation: 345,000Capital and major city: HobartEconomic mainstay: farming, some industry and tourismHydroelectric powerFederal parliamentary democracyThe Republic of South Tindoro covers the southern and eastern portion of the Island of Tindoro.South Tindoro has an area, including the smaller islands, of 40,700 sq km (15,700 sq mi), out of a total 67,800 sq km (26,200 sq mi) for the entire island of Tindoro.South Tindoro has a large central mountainous plateau, with lakes, rivers and hydroelectric plants. Its coastal plain consists of a slice of land on the northeast portion of the country.Total population is 345,000, about 230,000 of which live in the greater Hobart region.Hobart is Tindoro’s capital and largest city as well as its main port. Lying in southeastern South Tindoro, the city spreads over the lower slopes of Mount Wellington and overlooks the broad Derwent estuary.South Tindoro has traditionally relied on its natural resources for economic development. Wool, hops, vegetables, beef, lambs, and dairy products are important to the economy. Timber is harvested, and silver, copper, iron, lead, tungsten, and zinc are mined. The country’s large hydroelectric projects provide the cheap power for South Tindoro’s industrial base. Tourism, centered around the many national parks and the former penal settlement of Port Arthur, is also an important source of income. The effects of fifty years of unrest or open warfare stunted economic growth, and the latest crisis has harmed the tourism industry in particular.South Tindoro is a federal parliamentary democracy. The constitution of Samagaland, which became effective in 1901, is based on British parliamentary traditions, and includes elements of the United States system. The head of state and the head of government is the prime minister, who is responsible to Parliament. Tindoro has a legislature that is popularly elected. The upper house, called the Legislative Council, has 19 members; the lower house, called the House of Assembly, has 35 members. All powers not delegated to the federal government are reserved to the provinces.
13 ROAD TO CRISIS1788English SettlementColonial Period1901Tindoro IndependenceIndependence1954De Facto North & South TindoroCivil War1956Samagaland Intervention1957Samagaland Unifies TindoroSamagalandOccupationTindoro Island was colonized by the English in the late 1500s, and was an integral part of the British Crown Colony which included the Australian continent.Samagaland gained its independence in 1951.Despite the common colonial background, Tindoro gained its independence as a separate country, also in However, this was a contentious process since many inhabitants of northern Tindoro had strong family, commercial, and emotional ties to Samagaland. A large portion of the northern population of northern Tindoro preferred being part of Samagaland or forming their own independent country.Separatist sentiment in both northern and southern Tindoro resulted in a de facto North and South Tindoro by 1954Civil war erupted in 1954, with Samagaland providing covert assistance to North Tindoro. In 1956, Samagaland increased its support and actively intervened with major ground, sea and air forces. By 1957, Samagaland occupied the entire island.Acts of violence and strong separatist activities centered in southern Tindoro, coupled with international pressure on Samagaland, resulted in an agreement by all parties to cease hostilities and agree to a peaceful settlement of all differences. The parties signed the San Francisco Agreement in 1992, which also called for the establishment of North Tindoro as a separate province of Samagaland and South Tindoro as an independent country. The new borders are shown on the next slideA UN force was deployed to North and South Tindoro to enforce compliance with the San Francisco Agreement; the force withdrew in 1997 after the situation was fully stabilized and new elections were held in South Tindoro under UN auspices.Relations between Samagaland/North Tindoro and South Tindoro remained outwardly calm until late 2000, leading to renewed crisis in 2001.1992San Francisco Agreement1996UNInvolvementReturn of Elected Government1997New Elections2001Crisis and Deployment of UNMOG

15 2001 CRISISElements within Samagaland claim South Tindoro is part of their territoryUN Resolution guarantees self-determination for South TindoroDemonstrations and violence erupt, reminiscent of 1956 events that led to the Samagaland occupation of South TindoroSamagaland begins initial deployment of combat units to North TindoroHumanitarian conditions deteriorateSouth Tindoro and Samagaland leadership open dialogue to contain crisisTemasek Agreement signed to settle disputeUN Resolution 136 authorizes deployment of UN Military Observer Group.Vocal minority elements within the Samagaland federal government and North Tindoro claim South Tindoro is part of Samagaland and the UN resolution which guaranteed self- determination for South Tindoro is “null and void”.There are also minority factions in both North and South Tindoro that claim they are being persecuted by the respective governments. The Queenstown area in South Tindoro contains dissidents who want to be part of North Tindoro, and the Fingal area in North Tindoro contains a large population that feels it should be part of South Tindoro.The crisis escalates, with heavy violent acts committed by both sides. Samagaland deploys forces to North Tindoro, and South Tindoro sends its forces along the border.Meanwhile, humanitarian conditions deteriorate, and human suffering on both sides of the border increases.With mounting pressure from the UN and nations within the region to decrease hostilities and adhere to the San Francisco Agreement, political leadership in both Samagaland and South Tindoro reluctantly agree to open discussions to contain the crisis.Both parties agree to settle their dispute, and sign the Temasek Agreement.UN Resolution136 authorizes the deployment of a military observer group.

The resolution authorizes a maximum strength of 300 observers.The resolution also keeps options open for further UN action.A copy of UN Resolution 136 is provided in your materials.
19 EVENTS LEADING TO CURRENT CRISIS Feb-May 02 Crisis develops and escalates to level that exceeds UNMOG mission and capabilities and causes the collapse of the military observer missionCMO recommends deployment of a UN sanctioned Multinational Force (MNF) to contain the situationSamagaland and S. Tindoro leaders open dialogue to consider CMO recommendation and other actions to resolve crisisSamagaland and S. Tindoro agree on Singapore to lead the peace effortDespite efforts of Samagaland and South Tindoro political leadership, tensions increase, breaking into hostilities among armed forces and so- called militias on both sides. The UN military observer mission collapses, and the Chief Military Observer, Col Suarez, recommends deployment of a multinational force to contain the situation.Both Samagaland and South Tindoro leadership agree, again, to consider the CMO recommendation and other actions that may be necessary to resolve the crisis.Both countries immediately agree upon Singapore leading any peace efforts, based on the great respect they have for Mr. Lee Thong Ng.
20 EVENTS LEADING TO CURRENT CRISIS (continued) Feb-May 02 Singapore assessment recommends following:Replacement of UNMOG with MNF (up to Division size) to keep factions separateFacilitate Humanitarian Assistance (HA)Facilitate return of Displaced Persons (DP)Conduct Information OperationsAssist police trainingUNSC Resolution 147 sanctions deployment of MNF led by SingaporeUN Secretary-General appoints Mr. Lee Thong Ng (Singapore) as Special Representative of the Secretary General (SRSG) to oversee HA, police training and public administrationOn 10 May members of the Singapore Joint Staff and Mr. Lee Thong Ng completed their assessment of the situation in North and South Tindoro and recommended the following, in conjunction with Samagaland, South Tindoro and UN officials:Replacement of UNMOG with a multinational force (up to Division size) to keep factions separateFacilitate Humanitarian Assistance (HA)Facilitate return of Displaced Persons (DP)Conduct Information OperationsAssist police trainingUN Resolution 147 sanctions the deployment of a Coalition Task Force led by Singapore.Mr. Lee Thong Ng is the Special Representative of the Secretary General and will oversee all humanitarian assistance and infrastructure rebuilding, working in tandem with the Singapore commander of the Coalition Task Force.
21 SINGAPORE ASSESSMENT 10 May 02 Conducted by Singapore Joint Staff and SRSG-and Lee Thong NgDisruptive activities by both sides continueBreakdown in cease fire; some inter-Tindoro terrorist activitiesGrowing displaced populationDamaged infrastructureHumanitarian assistance efforts threatenedHighlights of the assessment are as follows:Tensions among the population have increased along the border and in the Queenstown and Fingal areas. There has been a breakdown of the cease fire and the UN military observer mission was rendered ineffective. There are localized terrorist activities; there is no external involvement in these activitiesThe displaced persons situation is worsening as a result, and conditions within the camps have deteriorated.There is increased infrastructure damage.The humanitarian situation has also worsened, with shortages of food and water. Many relief convoys are harassed by hostile elements, and some areas are not receiving any relief supplies. The health system in South Tindoro is near collapse due to lack of medical personnel, many of whom fled South Tindoro during the early days of the crisis.The full text of the assessment is provided in the read ahead material.
22 UNSC RESOLUTION 147 15 MAY 02 UN Security Council sanctions mission Resolution accepts Singapore as lead nation for MNFMain tasks are: separation of factions, facilitation HA and return of DPs, police training and conduct of Information Operations campaignThe resolution does not make this a UN action. Rather, the UN “welcomes the decision of Singapore to be the lead nation of a multinational peacekeeping force” to create the conditions of peace and security required for the settlement of the crisis.The resolution enumerates the tasks recommended by the assessment team.Maintain separation of partiesFacilitate Humanitarian Assistance (HA)Facilitate return of Displaced Persons (DP)Conduct Information OperationsAssist police trainingA copy of the resolution is provided in the read ahead material.
23 UN GUIDANCE TO SINGAPORE AS LEAD NATION MAY 02 Stabilize areas of conflict in North & South TindoroCreate conditions necessary for secure/stable environment and to facilitate compliance with Temasek AgreementCoordinate with and support SRSG in his effortsEnsure Coalition Task Force has sufficient capability to defend self and accomplish tasksDevelop appropriate ROEEnsure SOFAs with all nationsIn addition to the UNSCR 147 which provides the mandate for Singapore’s action as the lead nation, the UNSG and his staff provided additional guidance to the Singapore Joint Staff and Mr. Lee Thong Ng over the course of May 2002.Stabilizing areas of conflict in North and South Tindoro and creating the conditions necessary for a secure and stable environment were critical pieces of guidance.South Tindtro is in an especially poor condition due the conflict, and needs support in rebuilding its infrastructure. While this not the mission of the multinational force, the MNF actions must lead towards conditions that will allow such an effort.In this regard, coordinating MNF efforts with the SRSG are extremely important so that both MNF and the HA efforts are complimentary.The UNSG recognized that there is still a significant armed threat to the civilian population, relief workers, and a peacekeeping force, despite the desires of both Samagaland and South Tindoro leadership to resolve all issues peaceably. With respect to the threat, the UNSG agreed with the necessity of the Coalition Task Force to have sufficient capability to defend itself.The UNSG further asked that Singapore develop appropriate Rules of Engagement acceptable to all MNF participants, and to ensure that appropriate Status of Forces Agreements were in place for all countries operating in Samagaland and South Tindoro.
24 OTHER STRATEGIC ACTIONS JUNE 02 Singapore working with other countries to finalize contributions of forces and resourcesSingapore recommends TCC forces be OPCON to CCTF and self sustainable for first six monthsSingapore opens dialogue with key Non Governmental Organizations/International Organizations (NGOs/IOs)During the month of June, Singapore worked with other countries and organizations as it developed a coalition for its Tindoro mission.During this period it solicited support from major regional players and those with a keen interest in stability in North and South Tindoro. The United States and Australia made major force commitments. Other countries with interests in the Asia-Pacific region also pledged contributions of forces commensurate with their abilities.An even greater number of countries pledged relief supplies, including food, medical supplies and shelter material.The Singapore Joint Staff worked intensely with Troop Contributing Countries on two critical issues: command relationships and force sustainability. The Joint Staff strongly recommended that the CCTF have operational control, OPCON, over forces attached to the CTF, realizing that national forces would still have their own command chain back to their respective national command authorities.The Joint Staff also recommended that all TCC units be self-sustainable for the first six months. That is, each country would be responsible for providing logistic support for at least the first six months, rather than requesting or assuming that the lead nation provide such support.Finally, the Singapore government and the Joint Staff initiated contact with key UN agencies, NGOs and IOs. Some of these contacts were made while Joint Staff officers made their initial assessment of North and South Tindoro. Contacts and preliminary discussions regarding how to coordinate efforts, have already been made with all UN agencies-WHO, WFP, OCHA-, the Red Cross/Red Crescent, CARE, World Vision, and the ICRC.During this period, the Singapore Joint Staff also designated the Commander, Coalition Task Force.
25 WORKING RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SRSG & CCTF SRSG has a consultative working relationship with CCTFCCTF provides advise on security and provision of military forces to enable SRSG to carry out his tasksThere is a weekly joint forum, co-chaired, to raise and resolve issues of common interestThe SRSG and the CCTF do not have the same “command” chain. Nor do they have the same responsibilities. However, they do support the same goal as enunciated in UNSCR 147. Thus, they must work together and ensure that their actions complement each other as much as possible.Their relationship can best be described as “consultative”.The CCTF controls the ability to provide a secure environment for relief efforts. In this regard, he can advise the SRSG on security issues and the impact on the SRSG’s tasks.The CCTF and SRSG have agreed to co-chair a weekly forum to discuss and resolve common issues. This forum will include senior civilian and military representatives from Samagaland and South Tindoro and the various UN agencies, NGOs, and IOs.
26 ROLES OF SRSG Three sub-offices - HA, Police and Public Admin Responsible for HAResponsible for Police TrainingAssist in Public AdministrationThe SSRG has three major responsibilities:First, he is responsible for overseeing the international humanitarian assistance efforts in both North and South Tindoro. He has offices in New Castle, the capital of Samagaland, Launceston, and Hobart to support these efforts.UNSCR mandated the training of a police force for South Tindoro; the SRSG office in Hobart is responsible for this task.Finally, the SRSG is to assist in restoring public administration functions in North and Sourth Tindoro. His offices in Hobart and Launceston handle these tasks.
27 SRSG REQUEST TO CCTF 2 JULY 02 Transition for UNMOG mission to MNF to be “seamless”MNF to work closely with appropriate Samagaland and S. Tindoro leadership to reduce tensionMNF to support HA, reintegrate displaced personnel and facilitate police trainingThe CCTF and SRSG met at Government House, Singapore, 2 July 02, to discuss the forthcoming MNF mission. The SRSG requested support from the CCTF:Make the UNMOG-MNF transition seamlessWork closely with Samagaland and South Tindoro leadership to reduce tensions on the island of TindoroSupport the HA efforts and the reintegration of DPs. Also, help facilitate police training (a SRSG mission).The foregoing requests are in line with UNSCR 147 and do not conflict with the Singapore Joint Staff Warning Order.

29 SAMAGALAND / SOUTH TINDORO DISPOSITION OF FORCES 18 AUGUST 02DispositionOfTroopsRiotersThis map depicts the current disposition of Samagaland and South Tindoro forces. The data base has detailed information on the force size, structure and location.In brief, Samagaland has an infantry brigade equivalent and a composite air wing, including 10 A-7s, in North Tindoro, plus two fast frigates in the immediate vicinity of North Tindoro. More forces are available in Samagaland, on the mainland.South Tindoro has two brigade equivalents, three air groups, including 8 MIG-29s, and 6 naval patrol craft.Forces in North and South Tindoro remain on full alert, maintaining active patrols along the border. There has been an increase in clashes between opposing forces. The largest skirmish occurred on 2 August between a platoon-sized Samagaland unit and a south Tindoro patrol. The Samagaland platoon crossed the border, in the Fengal area, and attacked a South Tindoro patrol, killing 4 soldiers and wounding 5, before other South Tindoro forces counter attacked and pursued the Samagaland unit across the border. During the pursuit and skirmish, South Tindoro forces accidentally destroyed 2 civilian vehicles and wounded 3 civilians.Aircraft from both countries patrol the border. South Tindoro aircraft occasionally overfly the Queenstown area, and North Tindoro aircraft occasionally overfly the Fengal area, but quickly return to their own airspace when pursued by opposing aircraft. There have been no serious incidents so far between the aircraft engaging in these tactics.

44 TERRORIST THREAT 18 AUGUST 02 Terrorist activities conducted primarily in Fengal and Queenstown areasSuspected operating bases include displaced persons campsSamagaland and South Tindoro governments both denounce terrorist activities and pledge support to eliminate terrorismThere is insufficient reliable intelligence on terrorist activitiesReports from UNMOG, Samagaland and South Tindoro military and civil police forces, and several NGOs/IOs provided information on terrorist activities. Some of the information is contradictory. Much of the information has not been corroborated. Current information is as follows:NGOs report possible terrorist cells in DP Camps in Patina and Queenstown, North Tindoro, and DP Camps in Bothwell and Bicheno, South Tindoro. Medicines and food supplies for DPs have been reported missing or stolen; NGO teams are “certain” that these supplies have been funneled to cells outside the camps.Samagaland claims that riots in Queenstown and Strahan are not spontaneous, but orchestrated by dissident elements who want to have the old border restored. Samagaland claims that terrorists have used the rioters as a cover to send “hit teams” against Samagaland forces. On 12 August a Samagaland patrol in Queenstown was ambushed, and all twelve soldiers were killed. Samagaland claims that the weapons and communications equipment were from the South Tindoro army.South Tindoro claims that major clashes between civilian factions in the Fengal area are aggravated by armed elements operating out of areas surrounding Bothwell and Bichino. South Tindoro forces report that in the previous two weeks, patrols have been attacked by terrorist squads, and supplies and equipment have been stolen from 3d and 4th Battalion supply dumps. Most recently, six soldiers were killed in a terrorist raid on the3d Battalion. Weapons and ammunition were taken as well.UNMOG reports substantiate terrorist activities on both sides of the border, but there is no solid evidence of an overarching terrorist organization in either North or South Tindoro; however, COL Suarez, the former Chief of Military Observers, cautioned that lack of evidence should not be taken as an indication that such centralized organizations existed.
45 EXERCISE DESIGNAll forces are deployed in home stations as of 18 Aug 02Deployment routes and time-lines to deploy forces to HOBART are available from Control GroupBased on COA selected, appropriate forces will be available at HOBART as per routes and timelines worked out by Control GroupIn order to maximize planning time for force structure and employment, the deployment routes and timelines have already been developed by the Control Group for each of the listed forces. That is, participants do not have to calculate deployment times and when forces will actually be available in theater. Note that forces will have different arrival dates based on their STARTEX locations and means of deployment.
