Question Description

Instructions:

Please answer both question thoroughly and provide at least 1 example for each.

Question 1:

Current U.S. military doctrine recognizes four categories of power available to a nation: diplomatic, informational, military, and economic. Upon examination, it is apparent that only a nation/state can wield these elements of power; they would be beyond the reach of weaker powers or organizations. How then, can these lesser entities influence the powerful? Five “underdog” strategies are outlined as alternative sources of power for the weak (please read the attached document titled “UNDERDOG STRATEGIES”. If you are trying to influence the national policy of the United States, which of these five strategies do you feel would be the most effective? Why? (answer should be based on 1 of the strategies in the document)

Question 2:

The official declared national strategy for the US military is the two Major Theater of War (MTW) strategy. The central tenet of this strategy is that the United States must be prepared to fight two simultaneous MTWs. Is it possible to execute such a strategy today? Why or why not?
