David s sling-and-stone fight against Goliath isn t that far from Iraqi insurgents fighting against coalition forces. While the Department of Defense (DOD) continues to build a high-tech American military to win wars against other albeit second-tier Goliaths insurgents have adopted and are practicing sling-and-stone low-tech fourth generation warfare (4GW). These 4GW warriors rely on networks of people over networks of state-of-the-art high-tech weapons. Colonel Thomas X. Hammes USMC explores the evolution and current practice of 4GW. DOD s focus on high-tech drives its doctrine organization training and education to teach people to take advantage of technology not to think about fight and win wars says Hammes. Just as the world has evolved from on industrial society to an information-based society so has warfare. Information collection against today s threats requires a greater investment in human skills. Technology by itself is not the answer. The U.S. defence establishment s failure to address the importance of human knowledge over that of technology leaves us unprepared to deal with the kind of wars we are fighting today and those we are most likely to face in the future fourth generation wars.
