The detective is not a sniffer dog, surveillance gear or metal detector. It is a software platform called Palantir that allows intelligence analysts to quickly mine streams of war-fighting data and calculate likely spots where the Taliban are hiding improvised explosive devices (IEDs) to attack allied convoys.

IED’s are not a problem ... simply kill every man , woman and child within a mile of the IED blast and after a VERY short while they will not tolerate anyone planting the bombs.
The Russians tried a very similar strategy with proven negative results. This is a tribal society. They will fight to the last by any means available.
Yet another missed opportunity by the GOP to nail zero and his treason.
In that case, we should do what General “Stonewall” Jackson said during the battle of Fredricksburg: “Kill them. Kill them all.”
Actually, seriously, post 911, we should have destroyed the country and left. . .leaving a warning that if they EVER stuck their heads out of that sh*tbox again, we would take Stonewalls advice.
Send in the Daleks!
How about the opposite tack? Pay them to protect a stretch of road. No IED - food, water, electricity and money are yours.
Actually, since it’s a Palantir, send in the Nazgul. And have them bring along a few thousand Orcs, Wargs and Urukhai.
Since this seems to be the Major Killer of our Military, they should stop at nothing to protect our Military on the battlefield.

I get your point, but that is a ton of collateratal damage
Took a long time for them to stop using hummers in Iraq, and fortifying the guys on the top with that really big gun. (no I don’t know what it’s called or the caliber... :) I
Take a trip to Walter Reed, then come back and tell us about collateral damage again.
Solution: Don`t Drive on the Roads.
Use OFFROAD vehicles or ACV`s offroad instead-
Actually, they need to pave the roads! Good job creation...
Then we need to get to the last one......
