QUESTION: The 2018 National Defense Strategy
(Links to an external site.)
posits that the United States is currently facing an “increasingly complex security environment” partially due to “rapid technological change” in the domains of land, sea, and air, as well as the opening of new domains of space and cyber. In all of these areas, “Inter-state strategic competition, not terrorism, is now the primary concern in U.S. national security”.
By now, you have been exposed to the ideas of several airpower theorists (Gorrell, Mitchell, Pape, Boyd, and Warden). Which of these theorist’s ideas do you believe are the most relevant to thinking about and overcoming the current and projected future security challenges and in what specific areas do you think these theories need to be expanded upon to be more relevant and applicable?
Support and defend your answer using specific examples from the course materials.
