  •  Security Transformation

    Security Transformation

    Security Transformation Dr Steven Metz Colloquium Brief by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, The Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, The Eisenhower Conference Series "For the past 5 years, the United States has sought to transform its defense capabilities to reflect ongoing changes in technology, management techniques, the American political and economic landscapes, and the global security environment. The terrorist attacks of September 2001 and the ensuing Global War on Terrorism provided stark and tragic reminders of the need for such an adjustment. With American military forces engaged around the world in both combat and stabilization operations, the need for rigorous and critical analysis of security transformation has never been greater."

    The "New" American Way of War LTC Raymond A Millen Colloquium Brief by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "This year’s topic, “The ‘New’ American Way of War,” was particularly relevant because it occurred during the height of Operation IRAQI FREEDOM (OIF). Over 130 national security strategists, including ten flag officers, from the Department of Defense, civilian universities, and other policy related institutions participated in the conference, held April 8-10, 2003.

    Security Transformation: Report of the Belfer Center Conference on Military Transformation

    Security Transformation: Report of the Belfer Center Conference on Military Transformation Dr John Deutch, Dr John White Colloquium Report by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, and the Dwight D. Eisenhower National Security Series "The attacks of September 11, 2001, represented the beginning of what President Bush has called “a new kind of war.” While terrorism itself has long been on our spectrum of real and immediate threats, the magnitude of the attacks and the administration’s aggressive and expansive response have changed the definition of national security. Homeland security, the new first priority, needs to be integrated with more traditional national security concerns. The role of the Intelligence Community must strike a new balance in terms of foreign intelligence and domestic security. The military mission should be redefined. Meeting all of these challenges demands a fundamental transformation of American strategy, armed forces, and national security organization."

    Defeating Saddam Hussein's Strategy

    Defeating Saddam Hussein's Strategy LTC Raymond A Millen Colloquium Report by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "Should war break out between Iraq and the United States, Saddam Hussein will likely adopt a strategy designed to undermine the prestige of the United States and turn the Arab World against the West. A war culminating in a titanic battle for Baghdad would provide Saddam Hussein with the prestige and respect he seeks from the Arab World. His military advisers have likely informed him that urban combat will deprive U.S.-led coalition forces of their technological advantage and result in considerable attrition."
