provide security for Air Force fight cts and combat search-and rescue teams. Rumsfeld’s trip also included talks in that Central Asian nation as well as in Saudi Arabia and Oman, all of which are expected to allow some military activ ities on their soil.
While the United States is getting some cooperation from allies in the Middle East, it’s also increasingly clear that those allies — specifically the Saudis and Egypt — lack enthusiasm for U.S. military action that could inflame Muslims at home and abroad.
Rumsfeld appeared to lean more heavily on the message that military action may be relatively small. The French defense minister also has said that he does not expect a retaliation for several weeks.
Rumsfeld did not rule out the possibility of taking military action to ensure that the air defense forces of the Taliban in Afghanistan do not pose a threat to the delivery of American food aid to parts of the country. He said Thursday he was certain U.S. military planes would make airdrops of food, but said the details were being worked out in Washington.
But Rumsfeld also hedged on whether
military action is inevitable.
“In the Cold War it took 50 years, plus or minus. It did not involve major battles.”
He 'seemed to indicate that the first purpose of that growing military might is to apply pressure — as the freezing of terrorist groups’ money is applying a financial squeeze — rather than to launch a major attack.
Military action in the form America is used to seeing it may never come, said Hy Rothstein, a former special forces colonel now working toward a doctorate at Tufts University.
A dearth of valuable targets in Afghanistan leaves communications systems, fighter training camps and other pieces of infrast ructure in the poor and devastated nation as the main known targets for expensive bombs and missiles, he said.
“If use of forces is an extension of policy and our policy is to reduce terrorism, bombing a training camp is not going to make a difference,” Rothstein said.
The United States has about 30,000 American military members are in the region, including two aircraft carrier battle groups and 350 planes.
The conventional buildup of forces for what many expect to be a war fought primarily by clandestine units has many other uses, analysts said. It positions t mops to be ready for anything, it could deter Osama bin Laden from planning further attacks and it shows the American public that actions are being taken following the Sept. ll attacks on New York and Washington, said Retired Army Gen. Fred Woerner, chief of U.S. Southern Command when the United States was trying to capture Panamanian strongman Manuel Noriega.
Analysts believe the Pentagon already has special forces advisory teams consulting with the anti-Taliban northern alliance, a group that could be trained and equipped for a larger effort among Afghan dissidents who may help overthrow the Taliban.
“It is feasible for the Afghans to do it themselves," Woerner said.
If that doesn’t work, then the U.S. and its allies will “fall back to the sledgehammer," he said of t he military buildup. “They’re developing a range of options, the preferred being to get rid of bin Laden without any military action whatsoever."
