Vice Chairman Discusses Weapons of Mass Destruction at Symposium

By Jim Garamone DOD News


The new Joint Warfighting Concept will be enabled by deterrence — a concept in vogue during the Cold War, but becoming relevant again, the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said today. Air Force Gen. John Hyten spoke as part of the virtual National Defense University's Center for the Study of Weapons of Mass Destruction 2020 Symposium. Hyten gave a bit more detail on the Joint Warfighting Concept. He said the overall concept is enabled by four underlying concepts: joint contested logistics, all-domain command and control, joint fires and information advantage. The general also talked about the lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic.
