The Future of Warfare- Thought Paper At the beginning of the quarter I was discussing the war on Afghanistan with my father a graduate of USC with a degree in Political Science He said to me War is nothing more than politics gone awry Just remember- Its all shades of gray my son Aint any black and white except on an old TV After mulling over this for several weeks I came to the profound conclusion that war between states was quickly becoming obsolete As we explore the politics of the twenty first century we can draw the conclusion that global conflict as we know it is nearing an end Within the next one hundred years warfare maybe all but over Advocates of both liberalism and realism can see beyond a reasonable doubt that the end of large scale armed conflict is imminent Remaining conflicts will be small skirmishes between groups and civil disturbances On a theoretical level realism is a doctrine that believes that humans have an inherent drive for conflict and power Kegley and Wittkopf 2001 p414 Because war is the direct result of the decisions of the people who run states and decide on a course of war it therefore is necessary to examine human nature One of the realists concepts that reveal the future of warfare is called the balance of power Global Issues 2001 Article 23 The balance of power means that peace and stability will be maintained when no single power can dominate or suppress others In previous wars a single state was being suppressed by another and that has lead to armed conflict We can see this in the Gulf War and numerous times throughout history If that country had an adequate and equal military then the likelihood of conflict would decrease In addition realists agree that if you want peace it is necessary to prepare for war Kegley and Wittkopf 2001 p551 In the cold
