Future warfare anthology by Robert H Scales( Book )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 406 libraries worldwide
This Revised Anthology is about the future of military operations in the opening decades of the 21st century. Its purpose is not to predict the future, but to speculate on the conduct of military operations as an instrument of national policy in a world absent massive thermonuclear and conventional superpower confrontation characteristic of the Cold War. Also absent are indirect constraints imposed by that confrontation on virtually all political-military relationships, not solely those between superpower principals. Most of these essays are attempts to define military operational concepts that might be employed to execute such an engagement strategy

America's Army preparing for tomorrow's security challenges by Robert H Scales( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 255 libraries worldwide
During the early decades of the 21st Century, the Army of 2025 will differ from today's Army in two distinct ways. First, it will achieve unprecedented strategic and operational speed by exploiting information technologies to create a knowledge-based organization. Second, it will exhibit tremendous flexibility and physical agility through streamlined, seamlessly integrated organizations that use new tactics and procedures. The collective result will be a versatile, full spectrum, capabilities-based force that can decisively respond to any future global contingency. As the world begins a new age and a new century, the Army is preparing for the next kind of war that will emerge

Building partner capacity/security force assistance : a new structural paradigm by Scott G Wuestner( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 75 libraries worldwide
This paper examines the current Building Partner Capacity and Security Force Assistance capabilities and capacities within the United States Army as well as Department of Defense. The current operational environment calls for us to look at history, policy, doctrine and other academic proposals to identify capability and capacity gaps. As the General Purpose Force looks forward to expanding roles in Irregular Warfare, Foreign Internal Defense and Security Assistance, does the U.S. Army have the proper force structure and minimal capability to fight and win the counterinsurgency of the future? This paper analyzes this construct and provides a framework for identifying proponency, institutionalizing lessons learned from OIF and OEF as well as providing military, police and governance structure as a tool for global engagement. This new structural paradigm will help the United States gain access, influence and build capacity throughout this new world order
The serpent in our garden : Al-Qa'ida and the long war by Brian M Drinkwine( Book )
3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 63 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
A suggested guide to the curricular archives of the U.S. Army War College, 1907-1940 by Benjamin Franklin Cooling( Book )
1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
The assigned mission of the United States Army War College since its inception in 1901 has been to prepare selected officers for high command and staff duty. The honor roll of its graduates reflects accomplishment of this mission. But as the names and tasks of those graduates have changed through the years, so have the curricular offerings which spawned their professional abilities. Thus, it becomes fundamentally important for understanding twentieth century military events, institutions, and personalities that we comprehend the multifaceted educational approach which produced the Pershings, the Eisenhowers, and the Ridgways--nay, even the countless thousands who remained unknown beyond the cloister of Mars. Such necessity leads to the historical value of the curricular archives of the Army War College
China's cyber power and America's national security by Jayson M Spade( Book )
4 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Originally submitted as a Strategy Research Project, this monograph examines the growth of Chinese cyber power and their known and demonstrated capabilities for offensive, defensive and exploitive computer network operations. Comparing China's capacity and potential to the United States' current efforts for cyber security, the author highlights the degree to which the People's Republic of China's cyber power poses a threat to United States' national security and offers proposals to improve future U.S. policy for cyber security and defense
ARNG in support of the national security and military strategies : is the ARNG force structured to be effective and efficient? by Catherine D Sopher( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This paper will examine the largest reserve component of the Army (the Army National Guard) and pose two questions. First, is the Army National Guard (ARNG) structured to effectively support the National Security Strategy (NSS) and National Military Strategy (NMS) in the future? The answer to that question is "no". The ARNG does not have the right force structure to effectively support the objectives of the national security and military strategies, especially if an increased number of smaller and long-term contingencies continue at home and abroad. The employment of the ARNG in its current structure does not lend itself to fostering the will of the people, the politicians, and the retention of ARNG soldiers, which are still important to this nation's resolve and ability to stay the course in pursuit of its national strategies. Secondly, if the ARNG structure is not right, then how should it change? What should be the primary roles and missions of the ARNG? This paper reviews two options for an ARNG force structure change: Homeland Security and full spectrum capable force. Lastly, recommendations are made as to how ARNG structure should be adjusted based on the recommended primary role for the ARNG. Chapters address the following issues: current total army force structure; national security and national military strategies; operational environment and ARNG force usage highlights; analysis of the will of the people; potential ARNG retention issues; impact of stop loss policy on retention; impact of stress on the reserves due to their high mobilization rate; two primary options for force structure rebalancing: homeland security or full spectrum capable force; and force structure recommendations to support a full spectrum capable force
An analytical review of the United States national interests in Korea by Frederick W Swope( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This paper will examine the decades of stalemate between the Koreas since the end of World War Two and the recent changes on the Korean peninsula and analyze the current policy objectives and interests for continued security on the peninsula and in the region. It will address these new growing tensions, and review the United States National interests and policy differences with South Korea. The paper will review whether U.S. policies and strategies for both South and North Korea should be changed, to include whether the United States should remain in Korea or reposition its current forces. Although the Cold War is over and a number of conditions on the Peninsula have changed, U.S. interests and objectives have remained relatively unchanged. The existing military alliance between South Korea and the United States should be continued with some modifications to meet the changing environment and even expanded to meet future regional security issues. Continued presence by United States forces in the region will deter North Korean aggression until eventual unification and act as a future regional stabilizer
Liberation or occupation? : how failure to apply occupation law during Operation Iraqi Freedom threatened U.S. strategic interests by Lyle W Cayce( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Prior to and during Operation Iraqi Freedom the U.S. Government asserted that coalition forces would be liberating rather than occupying forces to justify military intervention on humanitarian grounds to reassure domestic and foreign audiences that the United States had no imperialistic ambitions in Iraq and to avoid actions that might cause the Iraqi people to view invading forces as conquerors. As U.S. forces advanced into Iraq and other nations called upon the United States to act as an occupying power under international law the United States refused and maintained that forces were liberating Iraq. When the United States displaced the Iraqi regime in Baghdad U.S. forces did not immediately assume control of the city and restore order. The lawless period that followed cost U.S. forces the support of many Iraqis complicated post- combat governance and endangered the U.S. strategic goal of the creation of a democratic government. This paper argues that if the United States had planned and used occupation authority effectively the United States could have prevented many of the problems that plague post-war Iraq. It recommends that the United States incorporate occupation law into future operations
How does the National Guard become relevant, ready and reactive? by Angelito L Gutierrez( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The National Guard is an integral part of National Power and is heavily relied upon to execute missions in support of the National Security Strategy. This is a result of the increased peace keeping and enforcement missions and reduction of the active force structure. The concerted effort executed by the National Guard and the Active Army in the early 90s has made it combat ready and deployable. Translating the level of training proficiency and abilities of the Guard to the Active Army and being able to deploy into a theater of operation within a timely manner so as to be an affective player in a combatant commander's plan are the issues. The process by which the Guard is activated and deployed in response to a national emergency is hindering its responsiveness to the needs of the Nation. The validation requirement within the mobilization process is redundant and unnecessary. The National Guard can deploy into theater and conduct combat and combat support missions within the normal prescribed timelines given to Active Army units. WARTRACE relationships between RC and AC units have to be established and maintained. The Time-Phased Force Deployment Data (TPFDD) has to include these Guard units. The dividing line that has separated the AC and RC is disappearing with the increased Operational Tempo (OPTEMPO) brought upon by the Volatility Uncertainty Complexity and Ambiguity (VUCA) environment. In addition compatible information systems and centralized accounting of readiness levels are giving the AC and RC the link towards inter- operability
