Spacer Strategic Environment  

The attacks of 11 September provide compelling evidence that the strategic environment remains dangerous and unpredictable. Although we may sense dangerous trends and potential threats, there is little certainty about how these threats may be postured against America or her interests. Uncertainty marks the global war on terrorism, and our Soldiers continue to be involved in smaller-scale contingencies and conflicts. Yet, the potential for large-scale conventional combat operations will continue to lurk just beneath the surface. Victory in battle will require versatile combat formations and agile Soldiers, who can deploy rapidly, undertake a multiplicity of missions, operate continuously over extended distances without large logistics bases, and maneuver with speed and precision to gain positional advantage. Our Soldiers must be capable of prosecuting prompt and sustained land operations across a spectrum of conflict resulting in decisive victory.
