    Turning It Up to Eleven: Belligerent Rhetoric in North Korea’s Propaganda

    Turning It Up to Eleven: Belligerent Rhetoric in North Korea’s Propaganda Dr Mason Richey Article by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press After contextualizing North Korea’s capacity for belligerent rhetoric directed toward the United States and its north-east Asian allies, the author examines the contention that rhetoric from Pyongyang represents a conflict escalation risk or even a casus belli. The results of statistical tests indicate a negative correlation between Pyongyang’s rhetoric and international diplomatic initiatives, but no correlation between North Korea’s verbal hostility and its provocations.

    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."

    Military Contingencies in Megacities and Sub-Megacities

    Military Contingencies in Megacities and Sub-Megacities Mr Werner Selle, Dr Phil Williams Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "Urbanization is one of the most important megatrends of the 21st century. Consequently, the possibility of U.S. military involvement in a megacity or sub-megacity is an eventuality that cannot be ignored. After elucidating the nature of urbanization and developing a typology in terms of smart, fragile, and feral cities, we give consideration to the kinds of contingencies that the U.S. military, especially the Army, needs to think about and prepare for.

    The COIN Conundrum: The Future of Counterinsurgency and U.S. Land Power Dr Thomas R Mockaitis Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "The debate over counterinsurgency (COIN), seemingly dormant since the end of the Vietnam War, has been rekindled by the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Since the 2006 publication of the U.S. Army/Marine Corps Field Manual (FM) 3-24, Counterinsurgency, practitioners and scholars have argued over the efficacy of COIN. Supporters insist that the new approach outlined in the manual led to the creation of a strategy that defeated the Iraqi insurgents between 2006-2009..."

    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..."
