Abstract : The role of the U.S. military is to fight (and win) our nation's wars. Our military's effectiveness in 'operations other than war' is called into question concerning the drug war. This paper compares and contrasts two strategies (supply vs. demand) in seeking the most efficient and effective way to combat the drug problem in the United States. It incorporates current and traditional sources, as well as an interview with a subject matter expert (SME) to evaluate what approach we should take in order to attain 'victory' in what appears to be an 'unwinnable war.'
