Abstract

The nature of asymmetric warfare has changed. Traditionally a military paradigm, it has developed into a psychological one. This paper examines this new change and uses the Second Gulf War to show how the West is quite successful in the psychological approach of changing people behaviour in the short term(the military paradigm), but seems to have ignored the longer term belief systems change needed to win this contemporary asymmetric conflict. The West has he 'means', does it have the' will'?
