Think that defense cuts don’t get troops killed? You might want to re-think those conclusions in light of the investigation stemming from the worst blue-on-blue incident in Operation Enduring Freedom, when a B-1B Lancer dropped bombs on a friendly position.

According to a report by the Washington Times, the deaths of five Soldiers in a 9 June “friendly fire” incident were caused by an inability of the Special Forces unit to properly train prior to deploying to Afghanistan due to “sequestration” – automatic spending cuts that hit the defense budget and entitlement spending. Special Forces units usually try to train for at least three weeks in terrain in the United States that resembles that in Afghanistan, but the Operational Detachment Alphas had those training deployments cancelled and had to make do with training at Fort Campbell in Kentucky.

THE STANFEX SOLUTION: The Danish Navy's Versatile Warships

Denmark’s Versatile Warships
By Harold Hutchison

MEET STANFLEX
As controversy swirls over the Littoral Combat Ship, which appears to be far more suitable for the Coast Guard, the Danish Navy is operating two classes of ship that might be an answer to America’s question. It is hard not to look at these ships and wonder what could have been.

One of the ways Denmark has made their naval vessels so potent and yet versatile lies in the StanFlex system. This system, first deployed in the 1980s on the small Flyvefisken class patrol vessels, enabled a small 320-ton vessel to fulfill roles from mine-countermeasures to a missile boat to combating pollution. Modules can be switched out in a couple of hours.
