However the most likely Insurgents Course of Action will see Defence of the main source of income – poppy cultivation There will be an increasing number of assymetric attacks against the standard targets Due to opponents‘ structure inter-factional clashes must be expected As soon as the Hindukush is negotiable again infiltration and exfiltration will increase. Insurgents will invest some efforts to maintain their safe havens. Sari Pul Spring 2007: Most Likely Insurgents‘ CoA: Defense of Poppy Cultivation Increased Assymetric Attacks against ISAF/ANSF Inter- Factional Clashes Maintenance of Safe Havens Cross boundary Infiltration/Exfiltration
