Not sure if this is the right forum, but considering that warfare and all things related are a science, I felt this forum would be appropriate.
I would like to discuss warfare in the 21st and 22nd century mainly in the scientific and strategic aspect and how technology and politics have shifted to the so-called "4th Generation Warfare". We see it every day, that governments in the developed world are downsizing standing armies that traditionally use the brute force of open fighting and are shifting more towards subterfuge, espionage and manipulation. Concepts such as mechs, lasers, and the like may be shelved before they even have the chance to be used (or perfected for that matter).
I would also like to discuss many science fiction military technologies such as the ones mentioned above. Would they have a practical use? What about stellar combat? Would it be like the inherent cluster (for lack of a better term) that we see so often in movies and video games? Where do you think military technology would be shifting more towards? These and many more questions I propose to you readers.
As I said, I didn't know which forum to place it in, so I decided this may be the best choice.
