Abstract : When the smoke clears from the next big war, will the United States and its allies have chosen the right path? Recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan have unveiled a new kind of warfare, demanding a deeper understanding of context and cultural sensitivity. Adversaries, more empowered and less apparent, are searching for creative ways to exploit blind spots. While the United States reals from recent conflicts and searches for ways to integrate lessons-learned into its conventional warfare construct, Germany is shaping a military concept based on recent conflicts and unfettered by biases of conventional strategies, organizations, and doctrine.
