Abstract:

The United States military recently adopted an unprecedented strategy to meet the national military objectives of preventing conflict and surprise attacks. Preemption has taken on new meaning for the Department of Defense DoD. The commander of Joint Task Force JTF Horn on Africa HOA, Major General Timothy Ghormley, USMC, is leading 1,500 U.S. military personnel in Eastern Africa engaged in a battle without bullets. By attempting to stem the growth of radical Islamic militancy in East Africa, JTF-HOA aims to defeat Al Qaeda before kinetic weapons have to be fired.
