    Key Strategic Issues List 2018-2020

    Key Strategic Issues List 2018-2020 Document by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "As our National Security Strategy and National Defense Strategy acknowledge, Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, and radical violent extremist organizations pose extant and potential challenges to U.S. national security. Those challenges exist within an extraordinarily complex global security environment characterized by dynamic changes in technology and its application, profound demographic shifts, economic redistribution and distortion, and geostrategic power realignments of historic proportions. These ever-intensifying conditions produce increasing uncertainty concerning the prospects for world peace, stability, and prosperity. Some strategists opine that the potential for great power interstate conflict is higher now than at any time since the end of the Cold War."

Bunker, Dr Robert J Bunker Book by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press, with help from the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) "This book discusses and analyzes the more well-known radical Islamist English-language online publications—al-Qaeda’s Inspire magazine, the pro-Taliban Azan magazine, and the Islamic State’s (IS) Dabiq magazine—as well as a number of lesser-known publications associated with al Shabaab (Gaidi Mtaani and Amka) and al-Nusrah Front (Al-Risalah). Additionally, early Islamist works such as Benefit of the Day, Jihadi Recollections, and Defenders of the Truth are highlighted. Further, Inspire guides and special theme publications and IS reports, news, and little-discussed eBooks—the Black Flags, Shudada (Martyrs), Islamic State, and The West series—are addressed. It next offers a comparative analysis of basic narratives found in 30 combined issues of Inspire and Dabiq magazines. Al-Qaeda and IS online magazine clusters are then provided along with a discussion of the differing strategic approaches of these transnational terrorist organizations. Finally, policy response options are offered as a counter to the emergence of these publications, a detailed radical Islamist online magazine chronology has been constructed, and a glossary of Arab terms found in the two dominant magazines is provided."

    Will War's Nature Change in the Seventh Military Revolution?

    Will War's Nature Change in the Seventh Military Revolution? Dr. F G. Hoffman Article by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press This article examines the potential implications of the combinations of robotics, artificial intelligence, and deep learning systems on the character and nature of war. The author employs Carl von Clausewitz’s trinity concept to discuss how autonomous weapons will impact the essential elements of war. The essay argues war’s essence, as politically directed violence fraught with friction, will remain its most enduring aspect, even if more intelligent machines are involved at every level.
