Abstract:

The beginning of the 21st Century has found U.S. strategists grappling for effective military options to retain operational flexibility in an ambiguous security environment. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, evolving political, societal, and operational factors have shifted the focus and nature of warfare that often limits the use of a traditional military response. Historically, U.S. strategists have sought to reform the lethality of weapons to better achieve objectives and military success. However, in the current strategic environment this approach has demonstrated not to be the most effective solution.
