September 10, 2001 Report: Reshape US Military to fight Terrorist Threats

A major military think tank based in DC released a report only 1-day prior to the 9/11 attacks stating that...

"America’s military needs to be substantially restructured to counter the
threats to global security that are likeliest to emerge through the year 2025."


The Center for Defense Information (CDI) study concludes that....

"the U.S. military can, and must, be restructured to handle smaller-scale,
lower-intensity operations and asymmetric threats."

Reshaping the Military for Asymmetric Warfare

  • Understand that military force is not the only, or necessarily the best, means of achieving national goals — excessive or inappropriate use of force breeds resentment and plants the seeds of future conflict.

  • Attract allies to one's own side, and subtract them from an opponent's side.[/li]

  • Focus on two major and complementary elements: create "harmony" and cohesion on one's own side, and foster chaos and paralysis on the other side

  • Surround the opponent with sustained ambiguity, deception, surprise, isolation, and menace; pursue multiple approaches and attacks, then switch between them and develop new thrusts faster than the opponent can cope; alternate unpredictably between the expected and unexpected, the orthodox and unorthodox, distracting moves and decisive moves, or in Sun Tzu's terminology, cheng and ch'i.

  • Understand that success in conflict depends most upon people, then ideas, and least upon hardware.

Well, the problem now is that the US Military is no longer controlled by the US, it's in the hands of the globalists. So, I don't think the US public has much say in what it does anymore.
