Title Being Human Beings: The Domains and a Human Realm.
Publication Date Mar 2013
Media Count 38p
Personal Author D. G. Vincent
Abstract The US Army and the Special Operations Command have made an effort to recognize the lessons learned in Iraq and Afghanistan and are working to emerge from the recent conflicts a more adaptable, capable and agile force. The entire military profession understands that the future holds a multitude of challenges, some which the military and the nation are prepared to face, and many which will require growth and adaptation to overcome. An initiative that places the human component, the art of war, at the forefront of conflict as a human domain is already well underway within the Army and the Special Operations communities. While this initiative is a positive and necessary step, it is neither radical nor far reaching enough to help generate a true revolution in military thought. Accordingly, doctrine must be revised to incorporate the concept of a Human Realm to unify endeavors and face the uncertain challenges of a future environment that will be dominated, as it always has been, by humanity. The coming decades may require advances in military science, but they will demand a revolution in the art of war.
