- Reaction score
In a NEO there are points where people gather - they get themselves to those points. They get screened etc before moving to where they will be evacuated from.I understand the point about NEO operations. Lebanon is the one that most immediately comes to mind. In an active combat zone non combatants found their own way to the docks and then were shuttled to a safe haven in Cyprus as I recall.
I am thinking more along the lines of the government being able to react rapidly to a developing crisis before the bullets start flying and discourage the opening of hostilities. And then, when they discover they got it wrong and decide they don't want to hang around, are capable of extracting their troops, and their gear before they lose them all.
Where do you find vessels to urgently extract troops when the docks are under fire?
We should not invest in shipping based on the fear of being stranded in a theatre.
