CJCS Milley: Character of War in Midst of Fundamental Change
The world is in the midst of a fundamental change in the character of warfare as a variety of nations begin to field directed energy, hypersonics and autonomous systems, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said on Thursday.
“I would argue that today [we] are in the middle of a fundamental change in the character of war,” Gen. Mark Milley said during the U.S. Naval Institute’s Defense Forum Washington conference on Thursday.
“The nature of war is probably not going to change, but the character of war does change and it changes frequently.”
