Abstract:

This paper deals with current Unconventional Warfare doctrine and capabilities and their role in future war. I discuss the current UW doctrine, thinking and the U.S. capability. I then apply that to several opposing schools of thought about future war. Those schools are broken down by symmetry and technical ability. high-tech vs low-tech and symmetric vs asymmetric Essentially, I argue that with some modification, present UW doctrine, thinking and capability will be key for American victory in future conflict.
