Think Before You Act: Defining The Political End State

by General Jim Mattis, Kori Schakevia
Monday, October 17, 2016
When we decide we need to take military action, how do we make sure we do it right? Whether it’s fighting against ISIS in the Middle East, driving the Iraqis out of Kuwait, or confronting the Axis Powers in World War II, every military campaign should start with a very clear idea of how we want the situation to end – what we call a “clearly defined political end state.”
