If it turns out that the location the security unit was designed to guard genuinely poses a threat to national security, the government made the proper decision in disbanding it.

It is crucial to disband any forces created to protect a facility if they turn out to be a threat to the country’s security. The NATFORCE is no longer necessary, as determined by the National Security Council.

The government has made the right call in disbanding a security unit if it turns out that the site it was meant to protect actually poses a threat to national security.

NATFORCE is the name of the law enforcement agency. I don’t believe that they are operating well and effectively. It is for the best that the government has put an end to their existence. There is no tolerance for indifference in our armed forces.

In the event that their service is no longer significant or required for the purpose of security, they ought to be disbanded in order to cut down on the amount of work that needs to be done by other security agents.

It is better the government has disbanded the NATFORCE. It make sense seeing a force established to secure a facility ends up being disbanded… The force itself is a threat to national security.

If the force does not function particularly well or effectively, it should be disbanded because it serves the objective of providing security and the resources that have been allocated to it will serve a purpose in other forces if it is decided that disbanding the force would be preferable.

If a force established to secure a facility ends up being a threat to national security, then being disbanded is essential. Since the National Security Council finds the NATFORCE no longer necessary, then so it is.

I actually don’t understand the essence of the law enforcement agency called NATFORCE. I don’t think they are functioning and efficient. It is better the government has disbanded them. No room for lukewarmness in our forces
