Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has unveiled the National Military Strategy as part of efforts to prepare the U.S. armed forces for future national security threats, DoD News reported Wednesday.

Jim Garamone writes that the strategy covers both state and nonstate threat actors and indicates an outlook of prolonged war campaigns as well as the potential need for a new global military posture.

“Globalization, diffusion of technology and demographic shifts are driving rapid change as state actors and transregional networks challenge order and stability,” Dempsey said.

“This strategy addresses these dynamics and our strategy to ensure that our force remains the best-led, trained and equipped military on the planet.”

According to the report, some of the factors that shaped the strategy are the globalization of people and technology as well as concerns about Russia’s military actions, Iran’s nuclear program, North Korea’s weapons development and China’s maritime territory claims.
