What Will War Look Like In The Fourth Industrial Revolution

David Barno and Nora Bensahel, War Is Boring: War in the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Retiring Chinese general He Lei recently made news by suggesting that China’s greatest military weakness compared to the United States was that it has never fought a real war. He noted none of Beijing’s increasingly advanced weapons, jets, and ships have been tested in combat. Moreover, the large People’s Liberation Army continues to rely upon conscripts rather than the long-serving professionals in the U.S. military. He argued the Chinese military “will be ridden with doubts until they get into a real fight.”


WNU Editor: Bottom line …. wars in the future will be different than how we fight wars today. This is a good summary on what is coming down the “pipeline”.
