1 Shift from Palomas to Caucasus Region WARRIOR FORGE 2010Common Training ScenarioConcept BriefShift from Palomas to Caucasus RegionUNCLASSIFIEDFor Training Purpose Only in Cadet Command
2 PURPOSETo gain approval of concept that will shift the WARRIOR FORGE Road to War from Cadet Command internal scenario (Palomas) to the TRADOC directed Common Training Scenario (Caucasus Region).
3 BACKGROUNDCTSs were developed in response to OES transformation initiatives set forth by the CSA during Were designed to meet leader development needs of institutional training and education systems within the Army.Work on the initial CTS began in June 2004 with Battle Command Training and Integration Division, Collective Training Directorate (BCTID, CTD) providing final delivery for CTS I in October 2005Primary purpose of the CTSs is to provide overarching education/training products for use across the entire Army education system. CTSs have a sister product, the Battle Command System of Systems Integration Training Support Packages, that are available to units for use in their battle command/battle staff training programs. CTSs will be used to instill within Army leaders a capability for planning and coordinating simultaneous and full spectrum operations in a Joint decisive action setting within the contemporary operational environment (COE).CTS concept is a TRADOC Higher Headquarters Initiative (HHI) providing a TRADOC Intelligence Support Activity (TRISA) approved COE in two scenarios. CTS I is full spectrum operations (FSO) in the Caspian Sea Region. CTS II is stability/COIN operations in a South West Asia (SWA) Iraq/Afghanistan environment. Both scenarios incorporate the integration of light and heavy modular forces as part of a joint expeditionary capable force.

5 RECOMMENDATIONCadet Command approve concept of using Caspian Sea CTS (Caucasus Region) as the RTW for Warrior Forge 2010.
6 CTS CHARACTERISTICSInstitutional focus, incorporates aspects of Army transformation, emerging force structure, concepts of modularity and expeditionary force employmentSupports operational and tactical levels of conflictScenario based with full-spectrum /simultaneous operations; phased operation allows WF to focus on Stability Operations while maintaining current emphasis of small-unit tactics and leadership ICW FM and FM 6-22.Meets the needs of institutional training for a common scenario to nest efforts of BOLC-A CC training with OES, NCOES, and WOES and future Army transformationIncludes variables/types of units that enables us to work a COE into training/assessments without making fundamental shifts of training and guidance on campusMaintains ability to train Cadets in Cultural Awareness and Ethics/Values in a tactical environmentAdheres to current Army and Joint doctrine; TRADOC guidance to move towards approved CTS

10 Key Facts Leading to Conflict in Region DONOVIAGORGAS; South Atropian People’s Party (SAPP) formed to represent people of region but it unable to influence change; gave birth to South Atropian People’s Army (SAPA).; SAPA, trained and equipped in Ariana, began attacking Atropian army units sent to maintain order and peace in area.3. Atropia has territorial disputes with most of neighbors. In west, Atropia and Minaria have both claimed Arzak province since the early 1900s.4. Active fighting over the region began in The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), with assistance from Ariana and Kemalia, finally negotiate a ceasefire 1994.5. Ariana Reasons for Conflict:Dispute over ethnic Ariana citizens in Atropia being denied basic rights.Ariana does not want to see new BTC pipeline as a competitor to their oil operations.Ariana claims rights to the oil platforms in the Caspian Sea that are the key element in a large deal brokered by Atropia with a consortium of international oil companiesArianan government opposes the formation of the Caspian Federation.Ariana’s political and religious leaders feel Shia’a Muslim population of Atropia is being steered towards westernization by their current government.BTC PIPELINEUKEMALIAMINARIAATROPIAOilFieldsB-C PIPELINEARIANA

23 CAUCASUS REGION CULTURE The following information on the culture of Atropia/Ariana is for situational awareness and understanding. These cultural nuances are merely another tool to help Soldiers make decisions in the COE. These suggestions are intended solely as guidance to help assist the units in executing their directed missions. They are not an attempt to undermine or substitute for SOPs, ROE, or Commander’s Guidance.Primary language is Spanish but many in region speak some EnglishPrimary religion in the region is Shi’a MuslimGESTURESCulture based upon loyalty to family, clan, tribe, and region before loyalty to nationOld age is respected and honored; emphasis on obeying eldersSense of time is casual and fluid; negotiations are normally slow and extendedNo concept of personal space; there is no “3 foot American bubble”Don’t move away if an Atropian “invades your space”Public Display of Affection common between same sexes is accepted and often expectedHonor most important virtue: external public perception of honorNever criticize in publicHospitality closely linked to honor – refusal is an insult
24 CAUCASUS REGION CULTURE GESTURES“Losing” not “Retreating” is considered a shame; will often retreat in order to avoid shame and “live to fight another day”Don’t engage women sociallyDon’t shake a female’s hand unless she offers it firstWomen are the custodians of family honor; rude to inquire about a female member of their family; Don’t look, touch or askDon’t blatantly cross your legsDon’t show bottoms of your feet; means that you think person is lower than dirtShame equals humiliation; difficult to say ‘no’ to a request because it is impolite; may intentionally mislead instead; “Yes” may mean I understand and not “I agree”Don’t use finger or hand gesturesNon-verbal signals or body language are a large part of communication in region; Certain gestures, while common in U.S., may be offensive and essentially disrupt message you are intending to conveyThe “okay” sign of thumbs up is actually a form of a local curseSense of time is much more casual than the American sense of time; Americans are very time-conscious and punctuality is important; However, Atropian culture is more relaxed in its view of time.
