Counterinsurgency and other stability operations seldom present a nation with trials that threaten its very survival, barring cases in which that nation is the target of insurgents. Bonds between coalition members are therefore weaker than when threat of annihilation reinforces mutual dependence. Such situations are further complicated by the use of force likely not being the primary implement for......

With a matter of weeks to prepare, Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI) personnel landed on July 24, 2003, armed for conflict but equally ready to restore peace without firing a shot in anger. RAMSI’s aim was to assist the existing government in reestablishing order and rebuilding this island nation plagued by escalating militia violence, crime, and corruption. RAMSI police......

The complexity that characterizes modern urban operations combines with a perceived intolerance of military casualties to make actions in cities among the most difficult missions that U.S. armed forces will undertake. This study proposes a new planning approach that employs identification of critical points — the essential elements of the urban area’s physical and demographic terrain &......

Understanding the nature of the various urban "seas" in which non-state actors threats swim and identifying those elements most critical to their support are vital for eventually expelling these "pollutants" from the waters. Education of the people of the urban area and acting to remove the financial aid from non-state actors can starve out the threats and make it much harder for them to use the d......

This paper presents a fictional account by a company commander of six urban battles, the last two taking place 24 years in the future. While the situations described in this paper are fiction, the challenges it presents are all too real. Although the lessons learned from these battles can be used to improve training or operations in the field, the author believes that, despite technological advanc......

This study proposes a new way of viewing urban operations, among the most complex challenges facing America's armed forces. Viewing urban operations in light of relevant densities, regardless of whether combat, stability, or support missions predominate, offers a viable means of approaching an otherwise most imposing puzzle. Doing so provides a vehicle to better understand how to conceptualize iss......

Recent historical events and changing world demographics caused the U.S. military to recognize shortfalls in its urban operations doctrine. The J8 Urban Working Group (UWG) therefore asked RAND to conduct a study to identify requirements in this area. This document summarizes that study, which was conducted in three phases. The first was a determination of the current status of joint urban operati......

Recent history provides evidence that U.S. participation in future urban military operations is inevitable; past events reflect that these operations are extraordinary in their demands on ground and air forces. This report draws on a review of relevant literature, service doctrine, training, and emerging technologies to assess U.S. military preparedness to undertake military operations on urbanize......
