Future warfare : anthology by Robert H Scales( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout U.S. history the American military services have had an unfortunate penchant for not being ready for the next war. Part of the problem has had to do with factors beyond their control: the American polity has been notoriously slow to respond to the challenges posed by dangerous enemies. On the other hand, American military institutions have been surprisingly optimistic in weighing their preparedness as they embarked on the nation's wars. The first battles involving American military forces hardly give reason for optimism. The initial defeats in the War of 1812, Bull Run, Belleau Woods, Savo Island, Kasserine Pass, Task Force Smith, and Landing Zone Albany hardly suggest unalloyed success by America's military in preparing for the next war. Admittedly, in each of its major wars the United States did enjoy the luxury of time to repair the deficiencies that showed up so glaringly in the country's first battles. Unfortunately, in the 21st century the United States may not have that luxury of time. Whatever approaches the American military take to innovation, war will occur. And it will provide a harsh audit. Almost certainly the next war will take the United States by surprise. U.S. military institutions may well have prepared for some other form of warfare, in some other location. To paraphrase Omar Bradley: it may well be the wrong war, in the wrong place, at the wrong time. But there it will be, and the American military will have to fight that conflict on its terms rather than their own. Unfortunately, military history is replete with examples of military institutions that have refused to adapt to the real conditions of war, but rather have attempted to impose their own paradigm--no matter how irrelevant or illsuited to the actual conditions. If we cannot predict where the next war will occur or what form it will take, there are some things for which the American military can prepare as they enter the next millennium

One of the bloodiest and most bitterly fought battles of the Civil War took place at Shiloh Church (and Pittsburg Landing) on April 6-7, 1862. The Union, led by Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman, held off a massive Confederate offensive led by Albert Sidney Johnston and P.G.T. Beauregard, paving the way for Union control of the Western Theater. When the fighting ended, nearly 20,000 soldiers were either dead or wounded, and the South had lost one of its ablest commanders in Johnston

An integrated rare earth elements supply chain strategy by Karl D Bopp( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rare earth element (REE) materials--rare earth ores, oxides, metals, alloys, semi-finished rare earth products, and components containing REES are used in a variety of commercial and military applications, such as cell phones, computer hard drives, and Department of Defense (DoD) precision-guided munitions. Today, most rare earth materials processing is performed in China, giving it a dominant position that could affect worldwide supply and prices. A disruption or manipulation of the rare earth elements supply chain will negatively impact DoD's National Security mission. To mitigate this vulnerability, DoD needs an integrated rare earth elements supply chain strategy that addresses the vulnerabilities and competing interests in such an integrated supply chain strategy
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 77 WorldCat member 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 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
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 WorldCat member 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 WorldCat member 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
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 WorldCat member 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
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 WorldCat member 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
