Talk da Talk


Since our government is in the DPP for our next TV spectacular, it should now fall within your AOI to become familiar with the language of MOOSE MUSS as our armed forces put together the MSEL for the DRAWDE to come. If you are to understand the SITSUM you must be conversant with the terms of the DPP so that you are not at the DMPI when the war comes.

Terminology contained here is also helpful around the home. I anticipate adding the following to my vocabulary: IROAN

ALCON: All Concerned

DPP: Deliberate planning process

AOI: Area of Interest

MOOSE MUSS: Mass, Objective, Offensive, Security, Economy of Forces, Maneuver, Unity of Command, Surprise, Simplicity (The Principles of War)

MSEL: Master Scenario Events List

DRAWDE: Defend, Reinforce, Attack, Withdraw, Delay, Employ NBC (Enemy COAs)

SITSUM: Situation Summary

DMPI: Desired Main Point of Impact

IROAN: Inspect & Repair only as Needed

Color me BBB: bewildered, bemused, befuddled.

How long do you have to stay befuddled before you can say you are fuddled? I think I'm going on at least +20 years ...
