Abstract : Command and Control Warfare (C2W), the military strategy for implementing Information Warfare (1W), is self-limiting by definition. Taken individually, the components of C2W - OPSEC, PSYOP, EW, military deception and physical destruction - - are not indicative of the information revolution. The continued effort to expand the military strategy of 1W beyond the current bounds of C2W may be indicative of a technology-strategy mismatch or disconnect.
