Defensive use of arm forces, deployment of military power to achieve basic
objective…and to minimize to damage oneself if the attack take placefor defensive
purposes, states may turn these forces again those attackers not against
population.. you can these forces when the attack occur or may be tempted to
strike first if believed that attack is eminentor enemy is on the verge of attacking
you, you dont wait for it and you move first. It is about moving firstinstead of
waiting that your enemy cross borderit is better to strike first than to be
stroked….Prevention is a defensive modeit is lower probably of being under
attack.the best defensive good offencePrevention is the ideas of eminent is a
sense of eminent attack…..ex:1981 struck the nuclear capabilities of Iraq
Deterrence: Deployment of military power..to prevent something that someone
doesnt want to doit is the threat of retaliationto prevent ….the target of
deterrence of posture is not only adversary forces but also adversary populationit
is based on state ability to convince, that it has the capacity to punish and welling to
punish.is using force peacefulif the threat is to carried out, the notion is failed.
Fidel Castro wanted to use nuclear weapon to save Cubaso for Castro the rule of
deterrence didnt apply. The difference between force and deterrence your arm forces
are targeted….in case of deterrence; it is targeting population and infrastructure as
well.
Compelance: the actual use of force directed to stop adversary from doing something
that is doingit is influencing adversary through actual use of force the key
aspect of compelence not to use force to destroy but sending signal to change
behavior. Example is conflict in Kosovo to do ethnic cleansing...so the target is
different.
Swaggering: Displaying your forces. To send a message to the rest of the world, about
the actual and potential capabilities….national parademissiles and tanks are
displayed to show the world that what are required to signal others ….aimed at
emence reputation.an image on the war seen.
Foot note: the utility of force has changed radically; it is now about war amongst the
people for the people. Counter insurgency and peacekeeping endeavor, force is only
component of a broader strategy involving state building and aid programs……
