Ten
 
key words
 
that
 
relate
 
to
 
your
paper:
 
United
 
States
 
Army
 
Special
 
Forces
 
Unconventional
 
warfare
 
doctrine
 
Special
 
Operations
 
15.Abstract:
 
As
 
a
 
mission
 
and
 
as
 
a
 
concept,
 
unconventional
 
warfare
 
(UW),
 
is
 
the
 
heart
 
and
 
soul
 
of
 
the
 
United
 
States
 
Army's
 
Special
 
Forces
 
(SF).
 
Since
 
SF
 
was
 
created
 
in
 
1952,
 
UW
 
operations
 
have
 
been
 
the
 
"touchstone"
 
for
 
all
 
developments
 
in
 
the
 
organization.
 
Doctrine
 
for
 
Joint
 
Special
 
Operations
 
correctly
 
defines
 
a
 
relevant
 
UW
 
mission
 
for
 
U.S.
 
Special
 
Operations
 
Forces.
 
But
 
army
 
Special
 
Forces
 
doctrine
 
for
 
UW
 
operations
 
focuses
 
on
 
only
 
one
 
aspect
 
of
 
UW
 
-
 
guerrilla
 
warfare.
 
This
 
was
 
appropriate
 
in
 
1952
 
for
 
the
 
purpose
 
of
 
organizing
 
partisans
 
in
 
Eastern
 
Europe
 
to
 
oppose
 
the
 
Warsaw
 
Pact.
 
Today,
 
however,
 
guerrilla
 
warfare
 
is
 
the
 
least
 
likely
 
type
 
of
 
unconventional
 
warfare
 
operation
 
to
 
occur.
 
Therefore,
 
SF
 
should
 
now
 
begin
 
to
 
focus
 
on
 
the
 
indirect
 
activities
 
of
 
unconventional
 
warfare:
 
subversion,
 
sabotage
 
and
 
intelligence
 
activities.
 
Special
 
Forces
 
UW
 
doctrine
 
must
 
also
 
be
 
updated
 
to
 
leverage
 
new
 
technological
 
capabilities.
