OTTAWA—I may not be a military expert and I am certainly not as knowledgeable as Scott Taylor, whose column often appears online right above mine in The Hill Times, but I am pretty sure that whenever an army deploys abroad it relies a lot on local assistance. Assuming, of course, that army is not one of occupation in which it would be completely normal for residents not to pony up any help. Without the familiarity of those who live there, whatever mission is planned must be that much harder to achieve.
