Secretary of State Hillary Clinton believes the term, "soldier," seems too barbaric in today’s politically correct world. Hence, she's calling for officials at the State Department to say, "force multipliers," when referring to U.S. Army troops fighting wars in the Middle East.
Foreign Affairs magazine published an article on March/April 2012, written by Carter Malkasian and J. Kael Weston (p. 118), explained that soldiers in Afghanistan should be known as "civilian advisers." These so-called 'diplomats holdng machine guns' must "bring with them mediation and alliance-building skills. Which will be needed for Afghanistan for years to come."
In 2010, Mrs. Clinton wrote, "properly trained and equipped, civilians are force multipliers." She encourages the the 'force multipliers' to "leverage as many as ten local partners, and when local partners build their own capacities and networks, communities become stronger and more resilient."
One wonders how long it will take for Muslim militants to figure out that it takes a village of 'force multipliers' to raise a "network" of suicide bombers.
