Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) August 28, 2010
5th Generation Warfare Educational Institute (“5GW”) was established to assist leaders at the federal, state, and local levels of government who are responsible for designing the policies and strategies necessary to address the emerging threats facing the nation today. Richard Sanoske, Founder and Chairman, stated - "5GW unites best of breed academia, scholars, and operational practitioners to address the challenging threats facing our nation and world in the 21st Century.”
The announcement of 5GW comes on the heels of breaking news stories such as Canadian suspects potentially linked to terrorist organizations located in Afghanistan and rising concerns of U.S. Homegrown Terrorism with American citizens allegedly aiding Al Qaeda, such as Samir Khan, Adam Gadahn, and Anwar al Awlaki.
5GW Educational Institute unites best of breed academia, scholars, and operational practitioners to address the challenging threats facing our nation and world in the 21st century. 5GW Educational Institute uses empirical, scientific methodology as well as real world operational vignettes gathered from some of the most seasoned counter-terrorism and irregular warfare operators in the world. "Our academic staff is comprised of respected authors and scholars who have dedicated their lives to the study of Terrorism, Asymmetrical Warfare, Unconventional Warfare, Counter-Insurgency, and the relatively new military conceptual thought of 5th generational warfare,” explained Mr. Sanoske, a 20 year military veteran with the US Army Special Forces and Silver Star recipient. He further stated "Our operational practitioners are proven professionals who have served for decades in some of the most elite military, various government, and intelligence agencies in the world. Together, we have managed to form, a Think Tank Dream Team" unlike anything in the industry.
The theory of “Generation Warfare” results from studying the evolution of military doctrine and strategy. Analysis of military history illuminates unique characteristics that further define the various categories of “generation warfare”. Consistent with this approach of study, 5th Generational Warfare (5GW) is the latest theoretical conception shared by various military thinkers.
“5GW Educational Institute focuses on the distinctiveness of today’s conflicts and “emerging threats” facing America around the globe. 5GW differs from previous “generations of warfare”, according to Kip Hunter, the Executive Vice President and Member of the Board of Directors. "5GW was established at the right time; at a time where our country is faced with unique and heightened security challenges. For example, our leaders are trying to define and understand a new phenomenon, Homegrown Terrorism--learning how it is tied to Global Jhadism, all while fighting in two combat theaters. I am proud to be a member of such an elite group of individuals," said Hunter, a 26 year veteran and retired US Air Force Colonel.
Two former Chinese colonels (Qiao Liang and Wang Xiangsui) wrote a book entitled “Unrestricted Warfare: China’s Master Plan to Destroy America.” In their book, Liang and Xiangsui state: “unrestricted warfare is warfare that uses all means whatsoever - means that involve force or arms and means that do not involve force or arms; means that involve military power and means that do not involve military power; means that entail casualties and means that do not entail casualties – to force an enemy to serve one’s own interest.” Understanding 5GW and associated emerging threats is critical to preparation for future conflicts and safeguarding our national security.
5GW Educational Institute offers special "niche" lectures and practical training courses on “hot button” issues facing the country today: Homegrown Terrorism; Militant Islam and Jihadism; Narco-Terrorism; Financial Jihad and Sharia Finance; Jihadi Media and Information Warfare Operations. 5GW ‘s primary customers are law enforcement, defense department and other government agencies at the federal, state, and local level. However, civilian security personnel are encouraged to apply for training and will be reviewed for attendance on a case-by-case basis. The instructor cadre consists of former DoD, DEA, CIA, DIA, FBI, and other government agency personal, as well as scholars and distinguished members from academia..
5GW is currently scheduling training events for the upcoming fiscal year throughout the United States. Mobile Training teams can also be deployed to the client's location. See the 5GW course catalog and view upcoming events at their website, http://www.5gwinstitute.com.
