    Yes this is a very large buildup. 40,000 specially trained counter terror troops is something very impressive to have, but its the only way to deal with insurgents. Regulars and conscripts can not deal with insurgent threats. The amount and type of training needed is completing different from conventional war. These guys need to know how to detect all sorts of IED's, booby traps, and how to deal with local populations. From what I have seen their current special forces or SWAT type units are well equipped.
