U.S. Army War College Key Strategic Issues List 2018-2020


Most interesting.   

What strategic components are essential for durable U.S. military advantage across and within the land, air, sea, space, cyber, information, and electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) domains in the Indo-Asia-Pacific (IAP) region by 2028?

Does this mean information is now a domain in the Army?  

Also interesting, this issue:

Describe how Army forces, as part of a joint, interagency, and multi-national team, could operate and compete with peer competitors to defeat their subversive activities, unconventional warfare, and information warfare short of armed conflict

I’m glad to see this addressed.

What is the impact on the joint force and Army with the addition of Information as a new joint function? Should Information be a new Army warfighting function? How should the Army establish and conduct information environment operations? Is the Marine Corps’ model appropriate for adoption? Is Information Warfare a more useful approach than Information Operations?

I would be interested in seeing what the Army considers information warfare, since it was dropped from the official lexicon in 2006.
