Abstract:

China is developing capabilities with its ongoing military modernization that, when combined with regional diplomatic and economic initiatives, will affect the Operational Art of the Geographic Commander CINC and his ability to respond to regional crises and wartime situations. To meet this challenge, China has adopted a military modernization program, along with diplomatic and economic objectives, that will challenge the U.S. military asymmetrically across the entire spectrum of conflict. To meet this challenge, the CINC must conduct Operational Movement and Maneuver that will ensure the correct U.S. forces, properly trained, equipped, and adequately positioned are positioned to exploit Chinas critical weaknesses.
