PLA Daily: Not Appropriate to Emphasize the Scale of Destroying Enemy in the Future Warfare

According to PLA Daily or China Military Online on March 11, 2010, “As information technology  improves in future warfare, it is no longer appropriate to continue to emphasize the scale of the enemy’s destruction. … Sometimes, destroying a system, a subsystem or even the enemy’s key equipment will disable the enemy’s resistance capability.”

“In several recent high-tech regional wars, the US-led multinational military forces almost always attacked an opponent’s command system first, which defeated the opponent completely before it could organize any decent resistance.”

“A more and more well-developed information network can compensate for the inadequacy of not setting up the task of destroying the enemy in terms of scale.”
