Changes & Transformations
The world of defense and homeland security (“HLS”) has changed dramatically.
Where the challenge used to be coping with a rival that has an address and whose signature is clear and solid, it is now a conflict against cells, organizations and organizational fragments and the opponent has numerous addresses, most of which are 'straw addresses'. This opponent has a blurred, illegible signature and a complex identity, and it operates in multi-dimensional realms under cover of the civilian population. Furthermore, even opponent states have been using such methods for some time. By employing 'organized' state-sponsored terrorism by proxy, they strive for asymmetry and they prefer a ‘toolbox’ which contains non-standard, unconventional and not purely military capabilities.
The opponent has changed. He has become sophisticated, agile and diversified and has a shadowy “intelligence signature”. He uses state-mandated organs and restrictions as a legitimate mechanism for attacking states and their citizens. He'innocently' infiltrates through the state's official channels, converts civilian resources into lethal weapons (e.g. passenger aircraft or agricultural fertilizers), maintains a close connection to criminal activities and criminal organizations and makes it extremely difficult for the state’s security organizations to keep abreast of the rate of his learning and e developing processes.
Any state wishing to build an effective bulwark against terrorism and subversion must advance from a loose collection of bricks to a defensive wall, and this necessitates leadership, advanced technology integration and enhanced inter-agency capabilities.
To counter this phenomenon, states should develop dedicated, specialized, unique solutions encompassing all of the defense categories: security, HLS, military defense and defense against internal and external threats.
The official state-military approach to combatting terrorism and subversion (as far as flexibility and effectiveness are concerned) is provided by Special Forces, Commando Units and Secret Services. These elements rely primarily on a different state of mind. They are agile, should be well-equipped with cutting edgetechnologies and are capable of taking calculated risks responsibly. The identification of the emerging challenges has already influenced the future projects of “force build-up” and advanced armed forces are working on enhancing their special capabilities.
