Australians Worry about American Command in Oruzgan Province, Afghanistan
The Dutch, after a long commitment in Oruzgan Province are leaving, and an American unit is replacing them. The Dutch have been know for their soft approach to the war - some would call non-kinetic (although that term is probably not entirely true). The Australians have a big stake in Oruzgan Province and are extremely interested and apprehensive in what the American approach will be. The American unit is built around the 2nd Stryker Cavalry. Read of the Australian concerns in "Cavalry in charge of diggers", The Sydney Morning Herald, August 14, 2010.
