Posted: 08/29/2011

Pre-emptive war - it's a new concept, but it's entering many modern warfighters' parlance as a credible means of 'pre-empting' full scale kinetic operations. Brigadier General Ed Burley is commander of the US Army's 352nd Civil Affairs Command and, here, speaks with Defence IQ about the revolution going on in the field of Information Operations.
