The Role of the Military in Future Conflict" by Dr Thomas X. Hammes

A swarm of drones attacking Kuwait International Airport. Or terrorists setting off an explosion at a chemical plant in Oklahoma, which then releases deadly gases and causes massive poisoning.

These were just 2 of many grim scenarios that Dr Thomas X. Hammes painted, at his talk at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS).

Always refreshing to hear from a former "practitioner", especially one who is candid, pulling no punches.

Didn't know about this all black uniform earlier. 1st Battalion 4th Infantry Regiment are currently based in Hohenfels, Germany, in an OPFOR role.
