Abstract: The warfare concepts and principles named in seminal works such as Carl von Clausewitz’s On War and codified in military doctrine remain vital to the United States’ conduct of modern warfare. However, constantly changing global diplomatic, military, economic, and societal factors necessitate the evolution of the “American way of war,” which focuses on attrition warfare and the creation of new joint warfare principles. The shifting dynamics of world politics require additional doctrinal principles of strategic anchoring, knowledge, collaboration, rapid decision-making and synchronization, decentralized command and control, and stability to ensure the US retains its military advantage.
Defining The Line: Why The Department of Defense Should Reconsider United States Space Command’s Area Of Responsibility
In announcing the reestablishment of United States Space Command (USSPACECOM), the geographic combatant command also announced a new area of responsibility (AOR) for its warfighting domain. Typically, publication of a geographic combatant command’s AOR is routine, but, due to unique considerations in space law, USSPACECOM’s AOR is unprecedented. A reexamination of the AOR by USSPACECOM may avoid inadvertent, disadvantageous consequences, including the formation of international law.
