The serpent in our garden : Al-Qa'ida and the long war by Brian M Drinkwine( )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 (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. Colonel Brian Drinkwater will explore Al-Qa'ida's organization, leaders, doctrine, and their radical ideologies. It is argued that the war we must fight is one against Islamist transnational actors who openly engage in terrorism or support terrorism. It will highlight that our current national and military strategies to combat terrorism are inadequate to take on an ideologically emboldened transnational foe. It is emphasized that we must refocus our efforts and prepare to fight a war of several generations (long war), and several initiatives will be recommended 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"--Page vii

Cartel car bombings in Mexico by Robert J Bunker( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary Mexican cartel use of car bombs began in mid-July 2010 and has since escalated. Given the proximity to the United States, some literally within miles of the border, the car bombings, with about 20 incidents identified over the last 2 1/2 years, should be of interest to local, state, and federal U.S. law enforcement, the U.S. Army, and other governmental institutions which are providing increasing support to Mexican federal agencies. An historical overview and analysis of cartel car bomb use in Mexico provides context, insights, and lessons learned stemming from the Medellin and Cali cartel car bombing campaigns. In order to generate insights into future cartel car bombings in Mexico, the identification of such potentials offers a glimpse into cartel "enemy intent," a possible form of actionable strategic intelligence. For Mexico, steady and both slowly and quickly increasing car bomb use trajectories may exist. The prognosis for decreasing car bomb deployment appears unlikely. If cartel car bombs were to be deployed on U.S. soil or against U.S. personnel and facilities in Mexico, such as our consulates, we could expect that a pattern of indications and warnings (I&W) would be evident prior to such an attack(s). In that case, I&W would be drawn from precursor events such as grenade and improvised explosive device (IED) attacks (or attempted attacks) on our personnel and facilities and on evolving cartel car bomb deployment patterns in Mexico. The authors conclude with initial recommendations for U.S. Army and defense community support to the military and the federal, state, and local police agencies of the Mexican state, and the various U.S. federal, state, and local police agencies operating near the U.S.-Mexican border. The extent of support in intelligence, organization, training, and equipment is highlighted, as well as the extent that these forms of support should be implemented to counter cartel vehicle-borne IEDs and overall cartel threats

Building partner capacity/security force assistance : a new structural paradigm by Scott G Wuestner( )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 287 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

China's cyber power and America's national security by Jayson M Spade( )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 274 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

An analytical review of the United States national interests in Korea by Frederick W Swope( )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member 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( )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 260 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
How does the National Guard become relevant, ready and reactive? by Angelito L Gutierrez( )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 256 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
Cyberspace domain : a warfighting substantiated operational environment imperative by Olen L Kelly( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The DOD has expended considerable effort in a "piece meal" strategy that updates information related doctrine based on new technology instead of developing a comprehensive and convergent cyberspace strategy. The effort to define and structure cyberspace or information is well intentioned, but currently fruitless. Additionally, lexicon issues have been problematic to the doctrinal communities in developing cyberspace as a battlespace. Domains are where the military provides doctrine, training, and the necessities for war. This paper argues that clear consensus is needed to establish a new operational "cyberspace domain" where Joint Force Commander's conduct war "as an act of force to compel our enemy to do our will." It further argues that advancing the proposed National Military Strategy for Cyberspace Operations' cyberspace domain definition clarifies information operation's roles and functions, thereby enabling, gaining and maintaining information superiority
ARNG in support of the national security and military strategies : is the ARNG force structured to be effective and efficient? by Catherine D Sopher( )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member 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
Sustaining AMEDD professional strength in the reserve component by James M Fetter( )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reserve components of the U.S. Army are a strategically valuable resource to U.S. military policymakers. Within these components are the majority of professional medical personnel. As of July 2002 the AMEDD consisted of 19% Army National Guard 34% Army Reserve and 47% active component. In 2000 concerns were raised about dwindling numbers of doctors dentists physician assistants and nurse anesthetist officers in Army Reserve and Army National Guard (Selected Reserve SELRES) that without intervention would result in projected shortfalls through 2005. Also in 2000 significant increases were projected in the percentage of retirement letter eligible Medical Corps, Dental Corps, Army Nurse Corps and Physician Assistants. This has potential risk in light of the changing nature of activations and increased OPTEMPO. Potential effects of mobilization and deployment on recruitment retention and other related issues are explored. Suggestions for improving recruitment and retention are discussed
