“Climate Change – the Environment for Military Decision-Making, Past and Present”
When I entered Naval Service and became a SEAL Officer (1980), the World was largely Black and White, in terms of Adversaries and Threats to the United States. Today, our Military Commanders are forced to interpret what and who a “Competitor”, “Adversary”, or “Terrorist” is, and to be aware of our Nation’s Policies and Political Climate, which tend to be fickle.
Further, U.S. domestic distractions and political divisions in the past pale in comparison to today’s Wokeness, Equality, and other controversial issues. This ambiguous and treacherous environment for Military Commanders at every level could make for cautious, conservative, and sometimes delayed decisions, which often leads to Missed Opportunities or Mission Failure.
