Leadership for the 1970's( Book )

5 editions published between 1971 and 1973 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The findings of this study include: Degree of satisfaction with Army leadership varies significantly by grade level (higher grade, higher satisfaction), varies only slightly between combat and noncombat conditions, and does not vary by radical group; and in general, soldiers are satisfied with leadership in basic training and dissatisfied with leadership in advanced individual training. (soldiers are disappointed if high standards of performance are not set and maintained). Several factors were found to be compounding the problem of applying correctly the principles of leadership: Leader's perception of the current system of military justice as impeding their ability to enforce standards; Diversion of soldiers from primary duties by details and levies; Misuse of soldiers' time; Lack of authority to reward good performance with time off; Feeling by junior officers and junior NCO's with primarily Vietnam experience that they are ill-prepared for peacetime leadership; Apparently wide variation in the standards by which general officers measure leadership effectiveness of their subordinates; and Significant defects (lack of communication, inattention to human needs, etc.) in the professional climate corroborating findings of other pertinent recent studies of the military organization

Effects of information operations on nonlinear force structure by Susan S Lawrence( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper will address the advent of information operations and its effect on how the military will operate in the future. The goal is to highlight the need to aggressively pursue the execution of information operations' strategy and doctrine. Wrapped in this is the requirement to fix responsibility, clarify terms and understanding of 10, and find creative ways of responding to this new order of business. This may mean a whole new way of thinking that may alter our force structure to be more responsive to a threat. This paper also introduces the theory of nonlinearity and its effect on information operations. Leadership, innovation, and flexibility of task organization are essential to the success in Army operations. Future force designers must look at each mission uniquely and apply the right size and type of forces to meet the threat. This means units deploying in non-traditional ways; thus, the challenge of providing smooth, reliable information operations

Indo Pakistan relations by Wasantha Perera( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the original idea of the partition of the Indian subcontinent can be linked to the ancient Islamic concept known as "Hezira" one needs not dig into the history of several centuries to study the background to the Indo-Pakistan relations. Pakistan was created in l947 with the partition of India on the eve of her independence from three centuries of British rule. The emotions and ambitions of a handful of elite and a few bureaucrats in the British India decided the fate of the entire population of the Indian sub-continent, discarding their shared past and common heritage to become two independent nations. Incomplete plan and the unprofessional execution of the partition led to the emergence of two estrange neighbors amidst chaos, hatred and confusion resulted in the death of over a million people in ethnic and religious riots. Not fully satisfied with the outcome of the independence, the leadership of both the nations resorted to many shortsighted political adventures at the expense of economic and social stability of their countries

U.S. facilities access in Southeast Asia by Douglas W Deets( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper is a review of U.S. policies governing facilities access in Southeast Asia as contained in the National Security Strategy (NSS), the National Military Strategy (NMS), and U.S. Pacific Command Strategy. The various security strategies work in unison to achieve security in the Southeast Asia region. Access to facilities is essential should the U.S. need to rely on military force to ensure stability and maintain its national interests. There are numerous influences that could enhance the U.S. position in the region and there are some that could jeopardize the U.S. position. Some are controllable by the U.S. and others are not. The U.S. must take all the necessary steps to ensure that vital facilities will be available when needed. This paper recommends that the U.S. pursue a multilateral framework for access and that, if a multilateral agreement cannot be negotiated, the U.S. continue to pursue bilateral arrangements
NATO's force projection : where's the lift? by Phillip J Gick( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The study examines force projection, a capability central to current and projected NATO and US concepts. For selected countries, the paper looks at positions and motivations concerning the alliance and assesses the impact on current and future force projection capabilities. The countries are Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, and the US. Factors considered include trends in each state's military, with a focus on aspects intended or likely to enhance force projection. Specific attention is paid to strategic lift. The economic strength, reflected in ODP, is used, as an indicator of each nation's potential for ma:ing improvements to its military. Each nation's defense budget, including trends and projections, are used to show specific intent and the importance of the military to the government and the public. Public support for the military, NATO and international involvement are reviewed to give some understanding of constraints placed upon governments. A limited look at past involvement by each state's military in international efforts is made to provide insight into force projection prospects. The paper has an extensive bibliography of Internet sites, governmental materials, and interviewees. The paper concludes that a mismatch between current strategic policy, both US and NATO, and force projection capabilities has resulted in a shortfall in NATO's strategic lift and provides recommendations

Globalization's impact on the Chinese war machine by John W Ballard( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2003, the leadership of the People's Republic of China (PRC) began using the term Peaceful Rise to describe China's increasing economic power and international influence. This Peaceful Rise mantra coupled with the much anticipated 2008 Summer Olympics hopes to portray China as a peaceful nation ready to assume superpower status. Projected to have the world's largest economy by 2030, China is already the United State's largest trading partner. With an insatiable appetite for natural resources to sustain the economic growth China has diligently applied soft power elements to enter long-term agreements with key countries worldwide. Some range from dubious to outright terrorist states. The liberation of Kuwait became a wakeup call for the Chinese. Using state-of-the-art weaponry, U.S. led coalition forces had soundly defeated an Iraqi Military supplied with Chinese armament and tactics. China's take away from this defeat was to modernize its forces. Will external factors prompt China to engage this new military might, or will it continue its diplomatic course and grow its economy while the United States falls from grace in the world's eyes? This paper addresses these issues and provides recommendations for future U.S. policy to deal with an increasingly powerful and assertive China
Combating African questions about the legitimacy of AFRICOM by Diana Briton Putman( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The creation of a new United States Unified Command for Africa, AFRICOM, symbolizes the strategic importance of Africa for the United States. Yet, the initial response from African leaders, scholars, and the media has been muted or downright hostile. This paper suggests that AFRICOM does not have legitimacy among Africans; it explains why legitimacy matters, and elaborates on how to achieve it. Americans must understand Africa's history and sensitivities regarding the role of outsiders. To win, AFRICOM will want to adopt new principles of engagement and operate differently. AFRICOM must demonstrate the congruence between American and African strategic interests and support African-led agendas where appropriate. This will involve cooperating with new multilateral African institutions. Finally, understanding the complex nature of conflict on the continent is essential to improving prevention and mitigation activities
Regional initiatives : eliminating the causes of terrorism by David W Major( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The US military is the only element of national power that has been funded to fulfill its responsibilities to defend the homeland from terrorists while buying time from being attacked by transnational terrorists. However, eliminating or reducing the underling causes of terrorism requires a regional approach and a full interagency effort to support counter-terrorism efforts in key nations and regions. These efforts should be coordinated and synchronized to improve the assisted nations' ability to provide good governance, including humanitarian rights, health care, information, governance, law enforcement, finance, and economic capabilities. Successive US administrations should direct relevant US agencies and departments. These efforts should focus on long-term solutions and not on narrow-sighted and short-term military solutions. This strategic research paper will focus on regional initiatives to identify the region's nations' political, economic, security, and informational environments. Selected nations should then be empowered and resourced, with support drawn from the full spectrum of US national power to provide a sustained long-term (25-50 years) program to eliminate transnational terrorist networks
China, U.S. and Africa : competition or cooperation? by Jon W Walker( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the United States has awakened to the extent of China s engagement in Africa, most military and political observers have characterized their relationship in alarmist and negative tones. While China s non-interventionist policy often frustrates U.S. political goals; the U.S. should recognize and capitalize on opportunities to work with China in order to improve African quality of life and standard of living. China's peaceful development has both positive and negative implications for the U.S. and Africa in the areas of oil competition, development and governance, conflict resolution in Sudan, and improvement of Africa s general health services. By using diplomatic, informational, and economic instruments of power, the U.S. can leverage China s desire for peaceful development along with its capital investments and political influence in Africa to achieve our national interests of securing energy supplies; stopping human rights abuses; enhancing African governance; and ultimately, improving the lives of 900 million Africans
Turning battlefield victories into strategic success by Joseph P Granata( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An issue facing the future of the American military is the American way of war and its inability to effectively turn military victory into strategic success. Senior Military leaders must embrace this fact and develop strategies that effectively integrate other agencies and tools of national power into later phases of the battle plan that will ensure overall strategic success. The recent military campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq are examples of astonishing battlefield victories that illustrate the prowess of American fighting forces. Yet, military operations are still ongoing, casualties continue to climb, and every day the media paints a dismal picture to remind us that we have not yet succeeded. A vivid illustration comes from U.S. Army Colonel Harry Summers' conversation with a North Vietnamese Army (NVA) Colonel when Colonel Summers reminded the NVA Colonel that the NVA had never beaten the U.S. Forces on the battlefield and the NVA Colonel merely replied, "That may be so, but it is also irrelevant." Future success lies in a better understanding of war as an extension of policy and specifically the roles and inter-relationships of the people, the military, and the government, to include other departments and agencies outside the military
The GWOT evolution : has the United States opened Pandora's box? by Robin L Porterfield( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The war on terrorism was the battle cry sounded by the United States in response to the events of 9/11. The enemy in this war was different than any the United States had faced before. The threat posed by al Qaeda and the radical ideology it inspired required changing how the United States would approach problems and issues in the future. Unfortunately, instead of changing its strategy to fit the problem, the United States changed the problem to fit its known strategies. The war on terrorism evolved into a war on rogue states and weapons of mass destruction, the foreign policy approach the United States was pursuing before 9/11. This evolution gave the impression that the U.S. was overstepping its legal and moral authority. Support for the United States dropped significantly, both internationally and domestically. At issue is the question, has the U.S. opened up the proverbial Pandora's Box" by expanding the war on terrorism beyond terrorists and their ideology? What impact will this have on U.S. interests and influence in the world? This paper will explore these questions and reveal that a refocusing of the U.S. foreign policy is required into the next century
The serpent in our garden : Al-Qa'ida and the long war by Brian M Drinkwine( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The terrorist attacks of 9/11 caused Americans to realize that our sense of invincibility had been shattered. This paper will identify Al-Qa ida and Salafi-Jihadists as our enemy and will recommend new approaches to fighting terrorism. I will explore Al-Qa'ida's organization, leaders, doctrine and their radical ideologies. I will argue that the war we must fight is one against Islamist transnational actors who openly engage in terrorism or support terrorism. I will highlight that our current National and Military Strategies to combat terrorism are inadequate to take on an ideologically emboldened transnational foe. I will emphasize that we must refocus our efforts and prepare to fight a war of several generations (long war) and will recommend several initiatives to include development of a cogent Grand National Strategy. These recommendations are intended to assist future planners in the development of a Grand National Strategy and an integrated long war campaign plan aimed directly at Al-Qa ida, the Al-Qa ida Associated Movement, and Islamist terrorists and executed through the application of diplomatic, informational, military and economic instruments of national power by an unified interagency effort in coordination with our multinational partners, international governmental and non-governmental organizations and regional security organizations
Army logistics transformation : a key component of military strategic responsiveness by David B Gaffney( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History has shown that a nation that lacks strategic responsiveness lessens its strategic influence in the international community and increases its strategic risk of attack. Over 8 years ago former Army Chief of Staff (CSA), General Eric Shinseki recognized the potential strategic risk of the nation because of the Army's limited strategic responsiveness. In his 1999 Army vision, he set a course to improve strategic responsiveness through transformation of the U.S. Army. Although many transformational elements were necessary to achieve strategic responsiveness, he believed logistics transformation was a necessary precursor to usher in change for the U.S. Army of the 21st century. The purpose of this paper is to question why Army Logistics Transformation is a Key Component of Military Strategic Responsiveness
Strategic defense against a larger power by Vladimer Chachibaia( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Prussian military theorist Carl von Clausewitz defines war as "An act of force to compel our enemy to do our will." Following Clausewitz's line of reasoning, war is a contest of wills between two adversaries -- both trying to impose their will on the other. Since the beginning of the 20th century war technological achievements have changed conventional warfare in many ways. Not long ago two adversary countries needed years to fight conventional wars. New technological developments have shortened the time required to prevail in war, but also made unconventional warfare the most problematic and challenging kind of armed struggle. Clausewitzian theory remains relevant in unconventional warfare. Unconventional warfare, and specifically guerrilla warfare, is not just the war of weak or small nations, but it can be the best way of fighting for small nations like Georgia. The focus of this study will be on strategic options for small nations seeking to defend themselves against a larger power, considering the case of Georgia but also lessons learned from the experience of other countries
Viva China ... : a tiger by the tail by Andrew J Van Ohlen( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of the Americas community; North, Central, and South, is a contradiction of the stated desire for a mutually beneficial relationship, but a reality that has seen exploitation, insensitivity, and injustice. Today relations between the U.S. and Latin American are arguably at a low ebb. Preoccupied with the Global War on Terror, little attention has been paid to our southern neighbors. This attention vacuum is being filled by other interested parties with their own political and economic agendas. A current major player in Latin America is China whose influence is growing economically and politically as they continue to expand trade agreements and political ties throughout the region. China brings economic incentives to the table without the demands for a democratic form of government, human rights guarantees, or involvement with private corporations bent on making a quick profit. But is this good for the U.S., and as importantly, is it a good thing for the governments and people of Latin America? There is a disparity of opinions on the motivations, implications, and consequences of China s growing influence in Latin America, but the reality is they are here and their influence, both hard and soft, is growing
