Oct 19, Derek rated it liked it first of all i would advise the interested to try and find a different copy than the one Goodreads displays with the Al Santoli introduction because the cover will make you look like a dumbass. Warfare is now taking place by non-state entities, using instruments never before considered as weapons, and involving all citizens of a nation. This shift will continue to expand and military leaders must adapt to non-war operations done by the military MOOTW and warfare conducted by non-armies. Essentially everything we hold of value can be used as a weapon. It seems that the US would rather pour money into new technology than think of other ways to conduct war.

It clearly was not written in English and, even with a reasonable translation by the CIA, uses a style of writing that take work to get through.
