DA4831 Flashpoints

Flash points is a course designed to analyze countries and issues of immediate concern to the Special Operations community. Recent courses have focused on the Syrian civil war, the rise of the Islamic State, Iran, and Yemen -- all pressing issues to the USG that do or could directly involve Special Operators. The evolution and nature of state structures and socio-political cleavages in the country of interest are of primary concern.
