Several times in the national news and in speeches the phrase tools of National Power has been heard when discussing some of the potential methods of waging the Global War on Terrorism. There have been some factors associated with this phrase, but usually not much detailed discussion about what those tools of National Power are Is it the Diplomatic Corps of the Department of State Is it the Commerce and Trade Representatives of the Department of Commerce Is it the Military Forces of the Department of Defense As in our soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen, and their leaders with their equipment that are sent out into harms way The author feels that these three traditional points are indeed valid, but are much, much too limiting in understanding the availability of the tools of National Power in all its many additional facets and details. There are many others to consider through all the factors and areas which are covered by all the Executive Branch Agencies. Factors which essentially make up the older basic social studies and geography details we have all been exposed through our years of ongoing education. To these others must be added because of the technological advances which are empowering other social and organizational changes.
