Since the end of the Cold War, the world has dramatically changed. The threats our military is asked to confront are vastly different from the past. We must not only prepare for the perils of today, but also develop capabilities that will ensure a robust capacity to deter and defeat future threats. Indeed, the dangers that confront us today were, in many cases, secondary yesterday.
It is indeed tragic that diplomacy has failed, but there are times when the use of force may be legitimate in the pursuit of peace. - Kofi Annan, U.N. secretary-general, March 24, 1999.
Joint Task Force™ is the real-time strategy (RTS) game where you command the frontline forces in tomorrow’s most hazardous conflicts.Lead twenty dramatic missions in explosive war-zones including the Middle East, Central Asia, and the Balkans.
