Recommendation to read – “Blinders”, a new essay by William Lind
Lind describes a DOD policy which is moronic. Not only does this close our system (in terms of information flows) — making it less agile — but it also illustrates the institutional rigidity of our military that makes their adaptation to a new world so difficult. A world in which 4th generation methods have become the dominant form of warfare.
