The Future Face of Conflict at WPR
We've got a couple of features up over at WPR as part of a theme issue, The Future Face of Conflict, that should be of interest. Jack Kem, of the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, gives a rundown of where the Army's new Stability Operations manual fits into its "doctrinal renaissance." And Paul McLeary, a senior editor at Defense Technology International, describes from up close how the Army's Human Terrain Teams of cultural anthropologists are helping to change the way war is waged. The issue's third article, David Axe's insightful analysis of the Somali pirate crisis, was published last week due to its timeliness, but it's back on the front page again, too. We've got some exciting plans for the WPR site that I'm looking forward to sharing when they're ready. For now, though, click through and enjoy.
