ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the future of warfares. According to the author, defense planning scenarios and force planning have focused on the traditional or conventional challenger in the past. While state-based conventional threats have not disappeared, it is clear that the United States will dominate conventional adversaries for the foreseeable future. Yet interstate war has not disappeared. It is possible that some stale may miscalculate our resolve or commitment or some irresponsible state actor could take actions that might require a U.S. intervention of significant scale. But as one looks out at the future and formulate future priorities and recommendations about capability enhancements for the Marine Air-Ground Task Forces of the future, he becomes increasingly convinced that future conflicts will not present the sort of neat distinctions represented by the Office of the Secretary of Defense view of emerging challengers.
