Pagination or Media Count:

Factions within these conflict areas will probably launch guerrilla operations as a counter to any conventional military involvement. Since the military instrument will probably be the option of choice to resolve these wars, a model within which to apply military force is essential to assure effective use of military force without weakening political resolve or conventional force capability.
