The New Leader
This paper is based on reflections resulted from articles presenting aspects of the American concept revised for the theatre in Afghanistan. Among them, the most important is that of Julian Barnes published in “Los Angeles Times” Magazine with the title “A New US Approach Expected In Afghanistan”. Here, the author presented his opinions on the aspects of Lieutenant General Stanley McChrystal’s appointment as the commander of the American forces deployed in Afghanistan. This paper presents several reasons why the General’s aggressive leading style is considered more adequate to the actions specific to contemporary warfare in this conflict environment in Afghanistan. Supporting this, Robert M. Gates stated that revising the command was imposed by the lessons learnt during the military operations in Afghanistan.
