Description

This paper examines the challenges of conventional deterrence. It emphasizes the knowledge and capabilities required for the successful implementation of strategies such as deterrence by punishment, by denial and by appeasement. Intelligence requirements, including knowledge of adversary preferences and personalities of decision makers, are also addressed.

Examples of conflicts such as the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, NATO’s deterrence of the Soviet Union and the Gulf War of 1990-1991 are cited to illustrate the dynamics of deterrence success and failure.

Due to the importance and timely nature of the topic, this paper is also published in Arabic as Issue No. 2 of Strategic Studies (Arabic Series).
