Why do we have to abbreviate everything? DMICP, DII(FD), RLI, SLI, LDCN etc Why don't we just state things in English. e.g. DII(FD) - a satellite system giving access to either Restricted/Secret Military Intranet. Or LDCN = Restricted RAF Intranet Don't get me started on info babble, net-centric, info ops, Information Operations Estimate & Planning -- or we are going to make more use of computer networks. p.s. Whats EB TOPFAS / IWPC or JETTS (ASSESS) I asses a word? Please no.
