Description

Excerpt from U.S.-China Competition: Asia-Pacific Land Force Implications:

This research project drew on insights from a power transition theory, using the Chinese game of “go” as an analog. Additionally, it considered the concept of “gray zone” competition, while taking into account the vital role regional allies and partners play in achieving U.S. strategic outcomes. The key findings of the research project are: (1) counter-intuitively, the Asia-Pacific is a land force centric maritime theater; (2) the U.S.-China relationship continues to emerge as the central “determinant dynamic” for the future of Asia-Pacific international relations; (3) a range of economic, diplomatic, and security relationships impact gray zone competition in the theater; and, (4) the U.S. Army requires a change in mindset to compete successfully in the gray zone, and senior defense and Joint Force leaders must understand the nature of this space to create a force capable of competing.

This report presents nine recommendations and an implementation plan. The full report benefited from a number of engagements with military staff and academia [. . .] We offer this report to enable better understanding of U.S. security challenges in the Asia-Pacific.

The central theme of the research effort is U.S.-China competition and the development of relevant land force recommendations to compete effectively in the gray zone between peace and war.
