A few after thoughts on 4GE/5GW . They did try to make it a buz word at the time yet never fully fleshed it out or the parts. From information warfare to technology one side does not have, or resources and enemy resources both being utilized at times. From full spectrum dominance to hidden ghost like tactics. Unpredictable by most yet precise in action as in to adhere to a plan or set of goals or tasks. Maybe even acute to information flows/monitoring. I think if they had really tried they could have done better than a buz word.
