However, this is a dead place that has been struck by a silent killer. It has left all of the inhabitants in either a hospital or worse yet, dead. The culprit, influenza, is possibly the most deadly strain of the virus yet seen. Experts from the World Health Organization are saying that this virus is worse than both the avian and swine flu outbreaks. It swept through this area with incredible speed. The entire region of Nakhchivan is now under quarantine. As an NCO in your Medical Detachment, you are part of the international effort to get control of the situation. Complicating matters is the recent increase in tensions between Atropia and Minaria over the region of Nagorno-Karabakh, a conflict that threatens to affect the relief efforts here in Nakhchivan. Discussion Question As part of the World Health Organization disaster response team efforts, what questions would you ask in regards to the operational environment? How would you attain the answers to these questions? What steps could you take to ensure you have prepared your unit to be successful in their mission? As a leader, how would you use the information obtained to prepare your subordinates for the upcoming mission?

Within the village is a five-story medical facility used to provide aid to noncombatants and civilians. Vehicles properly marked as medical transport sit in front of the hospital in clear sight. The recon element reports several historical monuments and museums in the area. To help facilitate the ease of troop movement and to protect the civilian population the commander orders the evacuation of the local population. The commander drafts an order notifying the mayor–“At 0600 tomorrow the evacuation will begin. If people refuse to cooperate, we will use force to remove them from their homes. Additionally, we will destroy any homes of those who refuse to leave.” The platoon sergeant asked you, the senior squad leader, to review the order, and to provide him feedback before the commander releases it. Questions 1. What aspects of the order, if any, are in violation of the Law of War? Explain in detail how those aspects violate the Law of War. 2. Your platoon sergeant asks you to rewrite the order to allow your platoon to accomplish the intended mission.
