Iran’s Burgeoning Strategic ForcesPublié le 23/03/2018

American Foreign Policy Council
Ian Williams

Among the Islamic Republic of Iran’s central strategic goals are the preservation of its political regime and its ascension to what it views as its rightful place as the regional hegemon of the Middle East. These objectives have put Iran on an adversarial footing with its immediate neighbors, and with much of the international community.

Northrop Grumman’s acquisition of Orbital ATK is one of many strategic investments being made by industry that will reshape the competitive landscape of the defense industrial base. Orbital ATK offers Northrop access to platforms, which provides full integration capabilities in high growth segments.

More distributed AMD operations would improve their flexibility and resilience and in turn strengthen the broader joint force.

TAMPA, Fla. — Islamic State group militants used armed, commercially available drones to bedevil U.S. and coalition forces fighting in Mosul in 2016, a vexing problem that the four-star head of U.S. Special Operations Command said was the “most daunting” threat his operators faced on the battlefield last year.

There are some good reasons to do that ; but if we do, it should be a short and decisive intervention with a clear goal. We don’t need another long-term occupation of another Muslim dominated country.
