Fighting It– The Social Science War

In an interesting article, Maj Gen. Scales (US Army Ret) argues that in WW IV (the fight against Islamofascism) that social sciences will be predominant.  He contrasts this to the Chemistry War (I), the Physics War (II) and the Intelligence War (III).  Specifically, shaping perceptions (which the enemy does so well with propaganda) and making the foot soldier more effective with socio-cultural training will be decisive.  Long, but interesting piece in Armed Forces Journal
