Why Militaries Have To Be Ready For Non-Traditional Threats

NEW DELHI: Today’s security environment is no longer linear or predictable. In recent years, the discourse of national security has undergone a subtle transformation. It’s no longer confined to counting force levels or just matching military powers with a neighbour.

In today’s context, militaries cannot be compartmentalised. They have to anticipate a mix of symmetrical as well as asymmetrical situations in which each new mission will likely involve a complex mixture of novel strategies in volatile and fragile environments. Therefore, the militaries must be prepared to face these challenges.
