Rogue regimes have extracted an inordinate amount of energy, blood, and treasure from the world’s militaries in the past century. Overthrowing these regimes is a major policy decision - fraught with peril and unknown downstream implications - as the United States painfully re-learned in Iraq.

Revolution In Military Affairs -- Why Computer Professionals Should Be Concerned

"Revolutions In Military Affairs: A Theory On First-Mover Advantage" by Andrew Bernard Silverstein
What determines the length of first-mover advantage in military innovation? In adopting revolutions in military affairs, some first movers benefit from a lengthy advantage while others suffer from a brief advantage. In this paper, I argue that that two factors, leadership and doctrinal congruence, relate to the two relevant actors, a first mover and a secondary actor, to explain the length of a first mover’s strategic edge. The theory is tested on the aircraft carrier, submarine, and intercontinental ballistic missile revolutions.

Politics, History, International Relations, Defense/Security Issues, USA, Canada: Changes in Military Affairs: Revolution or Evolution?
The concept, Revolution in Military Affairs (RMA), evolved from the ideas developed by the Soviet military theorists in the early 1970s. The Soviet concept on the matter was more limited than an RMA, as it was called a military-technical revolution; showing that the primary focus of Soviet theorists was on revolutions in military technology (Galdi, 1995).
