The United States and its allies will continue to confront mixed threats – disinformation, cyberattacks, sabotage, low-level conflict, and other threats that can be mixed with conventional war – over the coming decades. Due to rapid technological change and increasing global connectivity, its range is likely to grow. What would these threats look like? How can the United States and its allies maintain their competitive advantage?
