USA Strategic Objectives and ‘Gray Zone’ Activities
The United States is nearing a time when there is an intensified need to strategically compete with different rivals, particularly China and Russia, to continue enjoying the world dominance. Presumably, the United States officials are aware of the extent that this competition is likely to take, as it may not actively involve armed conflict and is likely to take a ?Gray Zone? approach. Gray zone activities are described as the political, economic, military rivalry, and informational control which is meant to secure strategic leverage to the different players in the “Gray Zone. However, it is important to note that these efforts are below the edge of an international response, although they are forceful and deliberately strategic that would enable the different players to gain considerable traction over time. The United States has been caught unaware in the different activities in the “Gray Zone” and maybe reduced to a reactional force to some of the strategies laid by different players.
