The Role of Non-Lethal Airpower in Future Peace Operations: Beyond Bombs On Target( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Due to a variety of forces, the interest in supplying U.S. ground forces in support of U.N. peacekeeping operations is at its lowest point since the end of the Cold War. The ignominious withdrawal of U.S. ground forces from Somalia in 1994 coupled with the relative success of U.S. airpower in recent conflicts such as ALLIED FORCE leaves a situation whereby the U.S. public views airpower as an acceptable panacea for solving these situations. Despite the limited validity of this belief, airpower might realistically be the only contribution that Congress is willing to authorize in a time when the military is stretched fighting terrorism and possibly sustaining a long-term commitment in Afghanistan and Iraq. Despite the fact that U.S. airpower will be involved in peace operations, the nature of intrastate conflict in the Post-Cold War era where peace operations are likely to occur is vastly different than the symmetrical threats the U.S. Air Force is most suited to fight. Based on this, several authors have questioned whether airpower is still relevant in these situations where it is difficult to distinguish combatants from non-combatants. More important for airpower strategists is how to effectively use airpower when political restraints limit the application of lethal force. Given that airpower is the only contribution the U.S. might be willing to make, how can airpower be used effectively in peace operations? What are its strengths and limitations? Is there anything the U.S. Air Force can do to prepare for these types of operations? To answer these questions, this essay examines the non-lethal use of airpower in peace operations. In addition to the traditional roles of airpower in peace operations such as reconnaissance and airlift, this essay examines airpower's role in operations such as psychological operations, air superiority and airborne communication

The secret word was 'wall.' "Among Groucho's guests on You bet your life's television debut are a woman with 150 cats and a wood carver who likes to print his own money. Director Robert Dwan noted in his book As long as they're laughing! that the duck didn't make its debut until the tenth show, so this episode is one of the rare 'duckless' You bet your life television programs"--DVD sleeve
