Victor Davis Hanson and John Arquilla

Is the United States military behind the curve? John Arquilla believes so. “[Our] big ships, big guns, and big battalions…are sure to be the wrong approach to waging the wars of the future.” ” He offers a way to get ahead of the curve: “[I]f we build a more networked force, it will already be able to fight at the regular level, and I believe that it will be able to scale up very nicely to fight the bigger wars.”
