Subject: NORTHCOM OPLAN name.
phalanx30    8/2/2014 9:03:12 PM
I am looking for a good name for an operation that involves countering large scale, simultaneous, civil disturbances in all U.S. States. Assume all military options are available (such as a situation involving a civil war.)

I like that, I could call it 'Operation Pusan' it's to be primarily defensive in nature anyway, at first. How about the counterattack phase?

Operation SNAFU would be appropriate.

It certainly would be a SNAFU. Something that could never happen in reality (I hope). However, given operations that NORTHCOM has done in the past (Vigilant Shield) and other operations conducted with combat in mind (Phantom Strike) what would be good names for a three part campaign with these objectives.
Phase I: Threat assessment, reconnaissance, meeting engagements.
Phase II: Stabilization and containment where possible.
Phase III: Decisive offensive operations where necessary, end of the threat.

If the current president of the US believes that the 2017 presidential succession endangers everything he has worked for we may see a "botched" election and a continuation of his presidency. Of course it may be that the election has already been decided in a way which guarantees a successor of his choosing. It is not that the road to 2016 hasn't already included some strange turns.

Then also there is the media report to the effect that the White House is gathering "incredibly" detailed information on individual American citizens. If you want to suspend the constitution and establish a police state I suppose that having access to highly detailed information on all citizens beforehand is extremely helpful if not necessary in order to move forward smoothly.

But that is off-topic. I am still seeking operation plan code words for the three phases I outlined above. Please, any ideas?

Aside from the previous three phases outlined above. I have operational details for a fictional scenario. circa 2003
V Corps: Using National Guard Troops in states north and south of its current headquarters (Fort Knox), a defensive line would be established in Southern Pennsylvania and neighboring states, with flanks anchored on Lake Erie and the Atlantic ocean. That line would break under pressure.
I Corps: Using active duty and reserve (National Guard, etc.) light Infantry formations, move east from its current headquarters (Fort Lewis). Sweep and clear up to the Mississippi, where a stop/defensive line would attempt to hold, and again fail.
III Corps: Using armor heavy formations, move west to a zone behind the Cascade-Sierra Nevada Mountain ranges, with flanks anchored on Vancouver, BC, and the Transverse Mountains ranges north of Los Angeles. Goal: Provide support to V and I Corps in defensive positions in the aforementioned mountains, and and prepare for a massive counterattack to re-take the rest of the country
Looking for a name for such an operation. For reference, CONPLAN 8888. Again taking some liberties given the fictional nature.
