The US Assistant Secretary of Defense is devising a plan to launch a campaign for targeting so-called terrorist groups around the globe.

Michael Vickers said the plan is focused on a list of 20 ‘high-priority’ countries including Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, the Philippines, Yemen, Somalia, Iran and some European countries.

Vickers, also a top Pentagon adviser on counterterrorism strategy, said the most critical aspect of the plan involves US Special Operations forces working through foreign partners to uproot and fight terrorist groups reaching far beyond Iraq and Afghanistan.

Vickers’ efforts on the modernization of nuclear forces for deterrence and retaliation earned his ideas the title of the ‘take-over-the-world plan’ by some pentagon officials.

“He tends to think like a gangster,” said Jim Thomas, a former senior defense planner who previously worked with Vickers.

Vickers trained for a guerrilla war against the Soviet Union during which he proposed parachuting into the enemy territory with a small nuclear weapon strapped to the leg and positioning it to halt the Soviet Red Army.
