US Army Is Preparing For Decades Of Hybrid Wars

Tyler Durden's picture

Released on Monday, the US Army’s Training and Doctrine Command, or TRADOC, drafted a new strategy for how US ground forces will operate, fight, and campaign successfully across multiple domains—space, cyberspace, air, land, maritime—against all enemies in the 2025-2040 timeframe.

The new strategy calls for “super-empowered individuals and small groups”, who are mobile and can simultaneously fight in every domain of warfare, which will replace the conventional large units like today.

Since the end of the Cold War, US and Joint Forces have enjoyed considerable amounts of freedom across all domains. The purpose of this new concept is to prepare the US for an increasing number of actors who challenge US global hegemony.

The reported titled “Multi-Domain Battle: Evolution of Combined Arms for the 21st Century, 2025-2040?, repeats one key point over and over again according to Defense One.

Adversaries will make life as difficult as possible for U.S. troops by not declaring themselves to be the enemy, or, as the concept puts it, by “combining regular and irregular forces with criminal and terrorist enterprises to attack the Joint Force’s vulnerabilities while avoiding its strength.”

The world got a whiff of this new concept in Libya, Syria, and Ukraine through the use of local paramilitaries and proxy forces. “Adversaries have blurred the distinction between actions ‘below armed conflict’ and ‘conflict,’ enabling the achievement of strategic military objectives short of what the U.S. traditionally considers ‘war,” the report says.

Defense One then summarizes four more reasons why the US Army has to evolve onto a multi-domain battlefield or face the risk of losing America’s global empire:

  1. The exponential speed of information technology. U.S. forces can’t assume that they will have the best phones, drones, or computer hardware on the battlefield. As computers get smaller, cheaper, and more widely available, U.S. tech advantages will disintegrate.
  2. Warfare will be much more urban. Some 60 percent (conservatively) of the Earth’s population will live in cities in 2030, many in megacities with populations of more than 10 million. This is where adversaries will try to engage U.S. forces, not in open fields or deserts where today’s Army and it senormous battle vehicles have the advantage.
  3. The internet will be a key aspect of the battlefield, not just in terms of trading cyber attacks with enemy hackers but in the need to constantly and expertly shape global opinion about the conflict. Troll armies spreading fake news and disinformation, coupled with enough social-media traffic to overwhelm open-source analysts, could “complicate the [Army’s] ability to gain and maintain an accurate, up-to-date, intelligence-driven understanding of the situation, as well as control of the information environment,” the document says.
  4. Every bad guy becomes The Joker. The Army sees a rise of “Super-empowered individuals and small groups” who can “use access to cyberspace, space, and nuclear, biological, radiological, and chemical weapons of mass effects to change the battlespace calculus and redefine the conditions of conflict resolution.” Read that to mean: lone wolves and minescule teams with the power to rival many of today’s nation-states.

Glancing at the American Empire, there are nearly 800 military bases in more than 70 countries and territories abroad. To maintain this global force,  the US Senate approved a $700 billion military bill this year. The amount eclipses $549 billion military spending cap established by 2011 Budget Control Act.

Summing up, America’s Army is going through a drastic overhaul after the failed conventional wars in the Middle East. The idea of small and decentralized nodes loosely connected operating across multiple domains–space, cyberspace, air, land, maritime seems to be today’s answer for tomorrow’s warfare. The concept has already been implemented in Libya, Syria, and Ukraine with not the best results. Meanwhile, as the American Empire unravels, the military–industrial complex is set to profit from years of war, as outlined in the report.

Hybrid War.. LOL..

My favorite points are:

9) An article from "The Jewish World" tells us that Hitler, Goering and Himmler, all have close relatives living as religious Jews in Israel today. Namely,
Hitler's nephew's grandson,
Matthias Goering - great-nephew of Hermann Goering, and
Katrin Himmler - the great-niece of Heinreich Himmler.

http://ou.org.s3.amazonaws.com/pdf/ja/5766/summer66/11_17.pdf

10) In 1932 the Jewish genealogist Karl Friedrich von Frank published Hitler's family tree. It was pointed out (June 16, 1932, in the newspaper Neue Zurcher Zeitung) that the name Salomon, which came up repeatedly in Hitler's maternal line, was unlikely to be Aryan. On July 14, 1933, the newspaper Osterreichisches Abendblatt published photographs of graves of various Hitlers from Jewish cemeteries and mentioned a cookbook written in Hebrew by Rosalie Hitler. Also, a number of Jewish families, surnamed Hitler, officially applied to have their names changed due to Hitler's (supposed) antisemitism. [Hitler's Vienna by Brigitte Hamann]

That's nice, but who really still cares, after all this time?

Seeing that I got a good noggin and a life to live... I don't give a flying f*ck!   

Now talk to me about making money or gardening, making cheese, wine or salami. Or having fun with knuckle-draggers...

US Army Is Preparing For Decades Of Hybrid Wars,... Hope they have read up on WW2

I have cut and pasted a section of the article

Proof that Adolf Hitler was a double agent.

http://www.preearth.net/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=1174 for your perusal:

Hitler was the same. Hitler was actually a Jew.

I have gathered yet more evidence from various web-sites and people, and it gets better & better. It is very interesting;

1) Hitler ordered the tanks to stop for 3 days near Dunkirk when only a short distance away. This allowed the entire British army and part of the French army to escape to Britain.

2) Hitler refused to take Gibraltar and turn the Mediterranean into a "German lake". There was nothing to stop the Germans from driving through Spain (their ally) and doing the job.

3) Hitler declared war on the United States.

4) Hitler refused to allow the tens of thousands of tons of weaponized nerve gas that the Germans had produced (at Dyhernfurth an der Oder) to be used. Over 500,000 artillery shells and about 100,000 bombs filled with nerve gas were found in their storage areas (mainly at Krappitz = Krapowice) at the end of the war.

5) Hitler refused to conquer Britain. After Dunkirk, Britain was totally defenseless.

6) Hitler refused to authorise the production of jet fighters. The Heinkel He 178 had its first successful flight in 1939, but the Jews Milch/Goering/Hitler showed no interest in it. The fighter version, the Heinkel He 280, was successfully demonstrated on April 5, 1941, but the Jews Milch/Goering/Hitler refused to put it into production. Hitler wasn't interested in a plane that could travel a couple of hundred miles per hour faster than the others. Same story with the Messerschmidt jets.

7) Jewish financiers gave billions to finance Hitler's rise to power.

8) Only the Nazi's attempted to kill Hitler. The Americans, British and Soviets made no attempt to kill Hitler. It is known that the British refused to allow a number of feasible assassination plans to proceed.

9) An article from "The Jewish World" tells us that Hitler, Goering and Himmler, all have close relatives living as religious Jews in Israel today. Namely,
Hitler's nephew's grandson,
Matthias Goering - great-nephew of Hermann Goering, and
Katrin Himmler - the great-niece of Heinreich Himmler.

Recently read an article that 70% of the new generation is unfit for military service. We are going to get beat down somewhere and all the feminism,SJW etc is going to go away real fast.

Trogdor's picture

Couple of younger guys I know just got out of the military. They said that they couldn't stand the "pussies" that were coming in. Apparently, now, the trainees are given "Stress Cards" that they can flash at DI's - and later on, superiors - who are "triggering" them. They're supposed to be allowed "5-10 minutes" to cool off before someone can continue to rip them a new asshole for being a grabasstic piece of amphibious shit.

While I would love to see video of an engagement utilizing these Snowflake Shock Troops - watching them go fetal at the first buzz, hiss and snap of incoming fire - I truly feel for the real soldiers who have to share a foxhole with these worthless fucks. I can see a whole lot of fraggin' in their snowflaky future.

Maybe the US should stop getting involved in wars against enemies they do not understand, who are determined to fight on until they prevail- no matter how long or what it takes in sacrifice.

The typical US military response is more fire power and technology. That approach has failed. Except for those making money off it.

Maybe the US should stop getting involved in wars  -  there fixed it for ya

Guderian's picture

Those Snowflake S(h)ock Troops will simply flash their "Stress Cards", whenever 'the enemy' approaches. Shooting them would be insensitive and trigger their brothers in cards. 


deoldefarte's picture

I feel that there will be a lot of
"friendly fire" casualties in the
future conflicts.
So far, the only battle fit force, IMHO,
are the Marines; and even now the
Pentagon pussies are trying to reform
them to fit the new mantra.

This whole post is super old news... to whit..

"Adversaries will make life as difficult as possible for U.S. troops by not declaring themselves to be the enemy, or, as the concept puts it, by “combining regular and irregular forces with criminal and terrorist enterprises to attack the Joint Force’s vulnerabilities while avoiding its strength"

For millennia now, the moneypower adversary of all life on earth has 'challenged the vulnerabilities' of empires and nation states... "by not declaring themselves to be an enemy... "by combing regular and irregular forces" - of criminal and terroristic enterprises

designed to defraud and degrade competing societies... while avoiding their strengths. Goldman guerrillas have recently taken Washington by storm... while the 'regular' forces of financial villainry have rolled up the flanks of any remaining economic power in the once mighty republic.

same as it ever was.

The US doesn't have decades left and will probably no longer be a going concern in 2040.

They need to revise the oath so they at least aren't making shame-faced liars of the mercenaries they hire.  They are not protecting and defending the Constitution.  The global military empire is foreign to the limited government defined therein.  Actions speak louder than words, even if they're kept in a glass case in a museum.

Absolutely. It was just a short time ago that they were whining and moaning and wailing pitifully for taxpayer cash, claiming the bogeymen-de-jour are (oddly enough, coincidentally, surprise!) doing Western-dreamed-up "hybrid warfare" which seems to be an NLP propaganda phrase like "strongman" and "regime".

The military has no business in non-military civilian matters, just as law enforcement has no business driving around in tanks. Seems likely the West are by far the worst culprits. Not good enough. That and demanding Cold-War-sized budgets to defend against imaginary threats. They are the hackers, they are the hybrid threat. They are the firefighters dousing houses in gasoline and waiting for the call. They are the medics poisoning their patients. Defund them and jail them.

Totally fucking sustainable.

There are 1,281,900 active duty service personnel,

so each one of them is dragging down $700,000,

but they only get $2500 plus combat pay, so WTF?!

There are also 100,000s of foreign aliens working

tax-free at DoDs 800 overseas bases, getting their

Green Cards and minority hiring points in the US,

after 5 years on MICs gravy train. This has to stop. 

Trump could stop this in a NY second with an EO.

But he won't. Trump wants UNLIMITED immigration.

"Trump wants UNLIMITED immigration."

 

Every one of your posts is so full of bullshit.  Go read Trumps 7 point immigration plan.  It's one of the best written pieces of legislature on the subject in 30 years and closes all the loop holes.

Ha!

Small groups are much more easily countered.  For every raio transmission there is an ability to receive and track.  The same goes for internet data.  There will not be anywhere near the same amount of hiding in the future.

Combined with a completely shady financial superstructure, the banditry of the USA will lead to its implosion.

The resistance axis will expose more and more each day.  No-one else seeks to do this kind of activity.  The US is losing a lot of friends as the weeks and months go by.

Cumuppance.

Hopefully other countries will gradually disconnect and isolate themselves from this cancer cell of the earth.

uhland62's picture

Other countries are sidelining the US already, but the US is also isolating herself - which is good. 

Perplexing: "... many in megacities with populations of more than 10 million. This is where adversaries will try to engage U.S. forces, ..." This reads as if adversaries will look for U.S. forces in African, Latin, American and Asian megacities. Really?

Many are trying to reduce U.S. presence in their countries because they are just too expensive. You have to pay these Marines plus spend gazillions on expensive U.S. hardware. The guys and girls from strategic command look at the world as if they were cheap scriptwriters.
