How would you make enemy soldiers think they were outnumbered?

Col. Pete Blaber and his team came up with this fake-out in 2001:

Flying over Kandahar in C-130s, they’d drop parachutes attached to big blocks of ice in the hills around town, making the enemy believe that the hills swarmed with commandos. The ice blocks would melt, and each parachute would blow around until it was found and reported.

Days later, the team dropped decoy re­­supply bundles, complete with food, batteries, water and fake letters from home. They also broadcast false radio chatter.  

Lesson: Collect lots of information (dots) and then connect the dots to come up with clever new ideas.
