As the new Joint Operating Concept for Irregular Warfare hits combatant commands and doctrine shops across the U.S. military, we find ourselves searching for new intellectual aids and policy tools that can provide certainty in an age that seems increasingly unpredictable and “irregular.” We look back longingly to an age in which the battlefield was understandable, in which we thought we knew the enemy and the methods and means at his ...Read more >

MRAPS, IRREGULAR WARFARE AND PENTAGON REFORM  

Mine resistant ambush protected (MRAP) vehicles offer an excellent case study for investigating the current debate over the Pentagon’s emphasis on developing and fielding irregular warfare capabilities. The debate was highlighted by a series of recent articles in Joint Force Quarterly,1 including one by Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, who cited the slow fielding of MRAPs as a prime example of the Pentagon’s institutional resistance to investments in irregular warfare capabilities.

INTRODUCTION : ETHICS EDUCATION FOR IRREGULAR WARFARE  

Terrorism is another term which lacks an agreed definition, but it is generally considered to involve illegal violence by non-state actors against primarily civilian targets. Guerrilla warfare, on the other hand, is a method of fighting in which the weaker side avoids direct combat as much as possible and prefers instead to use hit-and-run tactics. There are no clear front lines, and the guerrillas/insurgents may blend into the local population, making it difficult for government forces ...Read more >
