Abstract : Within all the Services the debate is raging about information dominance, control of 'cyberspace' or the 'Infosphere' and Information Warfare. Some argue that Information Warfare (IW) is just a repackaging of old concepts and current practices, while others contend it is the next Revolution in Military Affairs (RMA). The question that needs to be addressed is; can IW achieve strategic and operational military objectives on its on merit? A way to answer this questions is to analyze IW against our current doctrine. Using the principles of war as a framework, does IW fit (or can it be employed) in the operational environment? Will it be necessary to redefine or update the principles of war to accommodate this changing environment?
