    Enhancing Identity Development at Senior Service Colleges

    Enhancing Identity Development at Senior Service Colleges Doctor Thomas P Galvin Letort Paper by US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "Senior Service Colleges (SSCs) impart three things as they prepare mid-career officers and civilians for entry into senior levels of leadership: skills, knowledge, and identity. The first two are givens in education. They are easy to define, easy to build a curriculum around, and easy to measure. However, when one considers many of the challenges and crises facing today’s senior leaders, they tend to fall in the third area—the attitudes and dispositions of the leaders putting the skills and knowledge into practice. We tend to treat identity development as a natural and self-evident result of gaining such skills and knowledge, but it is not."

    Deterring Cybertrespass and Securing Cyberspace: Lessons from United States Border Control Strategies

    Deterring Cybertrespass and Securing Cyberspace: Lessons from United States Border Control Strategies Dr Mary Manjikian Letort Paper by US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "In recent years, analysts have begun discussing strategies for securing entities in cyberspace—including the files and software belonging to corporations, government institutions, and private individuals. Increasingly, analysts have suggested utilizing two types of deterrence strategies: deterrence by denial and deterrence by punishment. In determining how both deterrence strategies might be applied to preventing hostile individuals, states, and nonstate actors from entering cyberspace and inflicting damage there, analysts have borrowed from deterrence strategies that have been framed for a variety of other situations..."

    SOLLIMS Sampler (Nov 2016) – Strategic Communication / Messaging in Peace & Stability Operations Mister David A Mosinski PKSOI SOLLIMS Sampler by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "Strategic communication / messaging has proven to be a key enabler for the conduct of peace and stability operations. Recent operations that have borne this out include: Operation Atlantic Resolve (Eastern Europe), Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) (Afghanistan), Operation Enduring Freedom-Philippines (OEF-P), Operation Joint Endeavor (Bosnia-Herzegovina), the United Nations peacekeeping operation in Liberia (UNMIL), Operations Odyssey Dawn and Unified Protector (OOD/OUP) (Libya), and Operation United Assistance (OUA) (West Africa). This lesson report provides lessons from those operations – covering a range of issues, such as planning, execution, coordination, evaluation, tracking, and partnering."

    Should We Let the Bomb Spread?

    Should We Let the Bomb Spread? Mr Henry D Sokolski Book by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "In 1966, Leonard Beaton, a journalist and strategic scholar, published a short book that asked: Must the bomb spread? Mr. Beaton’s query reflected the profoundly alarm with which proliferation was viewed shortly after the Cuban Missile Crisis. Today that alarm is all but absent; now, not only is proliferation increasingly viewed as a given (more of a fact than a problem), but some security experts actually see advantages in nuclear weapons spreading or, at least, little harm."

    Strategic Insights: The "U.S. Factor" in China's Problems David Lai Article by US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "There is a widely-shared view in China that the United States has ill will toward China and is always looking for opportunities to make trouble for China. The Chinese believe that this was the case when China was a poor developing nation; and they particularly believe it to be the case today as China is rapidly becoming a great power. The Chinese claim that U.S. influence on every aspect of Chinese foreign and domestic relations is so ubiquitous that they have a name for it: 'U.S. factor/shadow/specter' "

    The Quest for Military Cooperation in North Africa: Prospects and Challenges

    The Quest for Military Cooperation in North Africa: Prospects and Challenges Dr Mohammed El-Katiri Letort Paper by US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "In the aftermath of the ousting of dictatorial regimes in 2011, the fragile political and security situations in Tunisia and Libya have contributed to the emergence of new threats that menace the stability of both countries and of their neighbors. Severe terrorist incidents have become frequent throughout the region. To name but one incident, the borders that Algeria shares with those two countries exposed it to a major terrorist attack on the Tiguentourine gas facility in January 2013."

    Stability Operations in East Timor 1999-2000: A Case Study

    Stability Operations in East Timor 1999-2000: A Case Study Andrew H Fowler PKSOI Paper US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, US Army War College Press "The stability operation in East Timor from September 20, 1999 to February 23, 2000, demonstrated how the United States can support the leadership of a well-respected and capable regional partner to strengthen the legitimacy of international efforts and encourage burden sharing at a time of competing Joint Force demands. The East Timor action, known as Operation STABILISE, was a United Nations (U.N.) sanctioned, Australian-led, multinational peace enforcement operation. Its objective was to end the violence in East Timor, establish security, and set conditions for the transition to a U.N. peacekeeping force in what was then a province of Indonesia."

    Strategic Insights: Cyber (In)Security, the Americas, and U.S. National Security

    Dr. Jose de Arimateia da Cruz Article by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press According to the Organization of American States (OAS) in its report on “Latin American and Caribbean Cyber Security Trends” released in June 2014, Latin America and the Caribbean have the fastest growing Internet population in the world with 147 million users in 2013 and growing each year. While having more users and more network connections are great advancements for traditional developing nations, they also represent a potential threat. Audrey Kurth Cronin points out that “insurgents and terrorist groups have effectively used the Internet to support their operations for at least a decade. The tools of the global information age have helped them with administrative tasks, coordination of operations, recruitment of potential members, and communications among adherents.” While much of the discussion regarding potential enemy attacks on U.S. cyber critical infrastructure mainly focuses on China, Russia, and Iran, the Americas have been largely ignored in the literature. Why are the Americas important? Why should we be discussing its place within the U.S. national security strategic goals?

    An Arab NATO in the Making? Middle Eastern Military Cooperation Since 2011 Dr Florence Gaub Letort Paper by US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "Two features have been consistent in the Middle East and North Africa since the era of independence: ongoing violence of all sorts—and the absence of a collective security structure, which could tackle this violence. Since the end of World War II, the region has seen multiple attempts to organize collective and cooperative security, all of which failed."

    Peace & Stability Journal, Volume 6, Issue 4 Mister Robert C Browne Peace and Stability Journal by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "Foreign Humanitarian Assistance (FHA) is fundamentally about saving lives and relieving human suffering. While these core goals are foundational for any FHA mission, the drivers of need in specific cases – whether chronic deprivation, sudden-onset natural disasters, complex emergencies or ongoing conflicts – may vary enormously, as will the range of actors who play key roles in these challenging missions – be they planners, logisticians, host nation officials, civilian relief organizations, UN field agencies, affected local communities or US congressional appropriators. In addition, the sheer complexity of the tools for performing key tasks poses enduring challenges for orchestrating FHA operations in an effective, efficient manner."
