    Nothing. They need to be disbanded. Nothing the army couldn't do. You literally dont need division sized units to do frick all. Waste of money. Cowards all of them. They belong on the battlefield.

      Which battlefield? How many? What weapons will they need when they get there?

        I would say Afghanistan but since they managed to dodge that one. They should be disbanded and be absorbed by regular infantry divisions. Cant put them in mechanized because they are too moronic and weak.

      Yea you're right, we should all just be groping around the battlespace, no idea where the enemy is, or in what numbers, or equipment. You're probably a moronic combat arms "soldier". What's funny is, in peacetime i actually do more of my job then you. Have fun scanning CACs at the DFAC while I'm in the SCIF, being asked my opinion on strategic level questions by 0-7s.

        I heard if you sign a 35 series contract you should go out of your way to *not* sign an Option 4 along with it because then you'll be sent to some moron unit to do motor pool and sweep all day instead of doing actual intel stuff. Is that true?

          its a roll of a dice regardless of what job you enlist as. You could either get a really good unit or a shitty unit.

          I think it really depends on which specific MOS you want. Fox? You are almost guaranteed to be doing dumb shit unless you get lucky like me. SIGgers, Golfs, Mikes, Papas? They are much more often assigned to units where they will do their job, but are not immune to frick frick games.

        I'm sure there's a useful intel guy somewhere in the military (it's a big place) but I've yet to meet one who wouldn't be improved by a little bullying and MOS change to 42A

    Guess, then deliver presentations about their guesses. I mean the pic really speaks for itself, "heres a map, heres where you are going, here's where we think youll encounter contacts, heres where we had contacts previously, heres what their composition was previously, heres what their modus operandi was previously", etc.

      In fairness they're not just simply guessing, the US at least runs a lot of math first to see what the likelihood of an enemy attack there is, what our chances of success if there is an attack, where they statistically are more likely to attack from based on geographic factors, etc. Even Russia doesn't do intelligence via shots in the dark.

    The most famous moment of military intelligence was at midway
    Where codebreakers were able to deduce that the japanese target was midway and that the diversion at the aleutians could be safely ignored

    By knowing the exact time and date of the japanese attack they were able to concentrate their forces at midway instead of splitting up
    While also rendering the multi-pronged attack of the japanese ineffectual

    Gather information from a variety of sources, do their best to analyze and interpret it, then present it the people in charge who will use that information to inform and influence their own decisions. At least in a general sense. Day to day taskings of an intel weenie can vary greatly based off specific job, unit, location, and what’s going on at the time. Much like any job in the military your mileage may vary greatly on a variety of factors way outside of your control.

    Maybe they're just a military version of rating agencies? Just prostitutes for hire, and my bet is MIC is their biggest employer.

        You probably weren't there, but everyone in the "west" was deeply shocked with the fall of the Iron Curtain and soon after the Soviet Union.
        Surely justification for gigantic spending on military industrial complex could not be the reason.

      Eh, I think there's a little truth to that, but the real reason has more to do with erring on the side of caution. Better to overprepare than to fall into the teap of overconfidence.
      And from what I've read, the U.S. might not have overestimated the *morale* of certain Warsaw Pact nations TOO unreasonably; now that they're in NATO, some of those armies had very positive assessments of their preparedness, discipline, and will to fight. (Not just you guys, but also the Czechs and Baltic states if I remember correctly.)

        Dude, should the war with NATO brake out, most of the conscripts in Poland and Czechoslovakia would kill their officers (those who would refuse to deflect) and switch sides/surrender.
        Ironically, it was the DDR who was the most trusted Soviet ally, to the point when State Of War was being prepared (1981), they ware thinking about using East German forces from the west and Soviet forces from the east, should Jaruzelski fail, but later gave up that idea because "Polish comrades would not understand" due to history of Germans invading Poland.

    The Pentagon probably has daily briefings about Putin's health and one intern has to give a short speech every day about the shits Putin has taken this day. Could be relevant to the war you know.

          Clearance jobs mostly also know some folks working for contractors who just got out and most don't make 6 figures . I'm a navy intel reserve power pointer and I do gsoc work contracting for big financial companies. They offered more and didn't require me to move to DMV which I despise.

                I was thinking about taking some orders with a SEAL team in a years time to put that on my resume. I figured I'd stay at my gig and just stay with corporate security/intel but i wouldn't mind getting into intel contracting just don't want to do it for less then 100k

                I have a friend who works at CITI Tampa on the OSINT team, he says its really easy but the manager is some random 50 year old woman who has no idea what shes doing.

                Lol I applied for that gig they never called me back tho after my initial interview. Financial osint jobs are cake! I would love to do strictly OSINT my current gig is mostly travel security with some osint and social media monitoring.
