Abstract:

Operation Restore Hope in Mogadishu Somalia provided our country a historical perspective of why pre-war intelligence is critical to our success as a superpower. We engaged a hostile enemy determined to strike fear in the minds of the American people. What they encountered was a determined focused mission, and failure was not an option. We served the interests of the United Nations through relief efforts, and won the heart of many Somalias. General Aideed and his clans were not able to withstand the will of the force. We learned as a result of the Rangers killed that to listen to the combatant commanders. The force conducted routing urban assault missions throughout our tenure. This was new war fighting for us but we prevail just like previous wars.
