The bottom line that will not be altered by any circumstances is that; BDF needs a sound military doctrine that will define the organisation’s role and purpose of existence.

Military doctrine is not a new invention by any standard and there is nothing secret about it that cannot be published in any form of media. I am drawing this line of thought because my views seem to be rattling some myopic minds at BDF.
