It is often very hard to evaluate an era while we are in the midst of it.   This is why the new war paradigm is difficult for us to evaluate.   One thing I think that is very important though is that the means that we receive information about war has drastically changed.   Think about how people (the general population) receive information about wars and how this has changed since the past.   I think this has a direct relationship with the way people look at war and may be part of the reason we believe war has changed.
Individually, think of one way that people receive information (whether true or not) about war has changed in the past two decades.   Write your post describing this change and how you think this change has affected people’s perception of war.
