Success in the Gray Zone

Collapse

"Our success in this environment will be determined by our ability to adequately navigate conflicts that fall outside of the traditional peace-or-war construct. In this “gray zone,” we are confronted with ambiguity on the nature of the conflict, the parties involved, and the validity of the legal and political claims at stake. These conflicts defy our traditional views of war and require us to invest time and effort in ensuring we prepare ourselves with the proper capabilities, capacities, and authorities to safeguard U.S. interests."

-GEN Joseph Votel, Commander, USSOCOM, 18 March 2015
