  General Gareyev Says Russia Changing Its Military Doctrine
The military doctrine embodies the government's views on ensuring the country's security, resisting threats, and preventing wars and armed conflicts; it reflects official ideas on military development and on preparing the nation and its armed forces to defend the fatherland.
I believe that the military doctrine, which is the government's declaration of its defense policy, should be openly presented to the nation and the rest of the world.
In this context, the military doctrine should provide for the readiness of the armed forces and other troops to carry out combat missions in local armed conflicts and counterterrorist operations, and to be mobilized for large-scale regional wars.

 Mikhail Frunze, "Unified Military Doctrine"
The article presented for the reader's attention is an attempt to raise the question of a "unified military doctrine" from the point of view of the interests of a workers' state and revolution and to sketch as an example a path which, it seems to us, the resolution of the problem must follow.
Military policy and the entire character of our armed forces' development, the character and system of training for individual soldiers and immense units, military-political propaganda and in general the country's entire system of education depends on the resolution one way or another of this question..
The second--that the character of the military doctrine accepted in the army of a given state is determined by the character of the social class which stands at its head.

 The Evolution of Soviet Military Doctrine, 1945-1984   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
This is an important caveat, for Soviet military doctrine––which is primarily the domain of military professionals in the Soviet Union, not civilian theorists as in the United States––is far from simply a pale reflection of American military doctrine.
Military doctrine serves to enhance the morale of the military by asserting and demonstrating the possibility of victory in a nuclear war.
The dominant motif of the period was a recognition of the revolution in military affairs wrought by the advent of nuclear weapons and missile technology.

 Military Doctrine - Fundamental, Environmental, and Organizational
Doctrine has, or should have, an extraordinary impact on the strategy process, and doctrine is an ill-defined, poorly understood, and often confusing subject in spite of its considerable importance.
Military advice and requests concerning force structures, weapon system procurement and force deployment (all of which are—or should be— based on military doctrine) are often ignored, overruled, or modified because of economic and political factors that assume overwhelming importance.
If military doctrine were followed to a substantial degree and success were not achieved, this would indicate that changes to doctrine were in order; that is, experience of failure would feed the development of new doctrine.

While simultaneously asserting that the doctrine is of the utmost importanc e, an essential indication of the military-philosophical orientation of the armed forces, the Doctrine is, nevertheless, a document for the interim period—subject to change with the appropriate and expected changes in the domestic and international enviro nment.
With respect to the military doctrine, peacekeeping activities and the stationing of troops in the FSU are noted as possibilities.
In this regard, the doctrine does provide a means for understanding Russian military philosophy on possible threats comi ng from the FSU and the necessary means to forestall the destablizing effects of wars of local aggression and their potential to spillover into the RF.

 Military Doctrine - North Korea
From 1951 to December 1962, North Korean military orthodoxy was a conventional warfare doctrine based on Soviet military doctrine and operational art modified on the basis of the Korean War experience.
The factors are the stability of the rear, the morale of the army, the quantity and quality of divisions, the armament of the army, and the organizing ability of the command personnel.
At the Fifth Plenum of the Fourth KWP Central Committee in December 1962, Kim Il Sung espoused the Four Military Guidelines: to arm the entire population; to fortify the entire country; to train the entire army as a "cadre army"; and to modernize weaponry, doctrine, and tactics under the principle of self-reliance in national defense.

 Mikhail Pogorely: Russia's New Military Doctrine
The military doctrines published in 1993 and the slightly modified 2000 version were mostly compiled political propaganda slogans.
The author's of this doctrine called for "restoring the force of nuclear deterrence" by reviving the notion of using nuclear weapons in a combat environment, making them a workable military option, not just objects with symbolic political meaning, as they were by the year 2000.
A doctrine such as this one is designed to provide a broad overview of the ruling circles' ideas and perception of global and domestic issues related to national defense and international security.

 CNS - Overview: Russian Military Doctrine
The overall mission of nuclear weapons, according to the 1993 doctrine, was "the removal of the danger of a nuclear war by means of deterring [other states] from unleashing an aggression against the Russian Federation and its allies." The exact conditions under which nuclear weapons could be used were not clearly specified, however.
The (intentional) vagueness of the military doctrine with respect to the limited use of nuclear weapons is removed by an article in the leading military journal Voyennaya mysl.[4] The authors develop an idea about using nuclear weapons for the purposes of "de-escalation" of a regional war.
Overall, the draft of a new military doctrine is fully compatible with a series of exercises that were conducted by Russia in the summer and fall of 1999.

 PARAMETERS, US Army War College Quarterly - Summer 1996
It is necessary to appreciate that although, at times, military forces combined with a policy of attrition of insurgents may have a crucial role to play in restoring and maintaining government control, military force is not an end in itself, but always a means to achieve a wider political purpose.
Doctrine is intended to guide, and thus to help view the overall government campaign and the military element of it through the prism of the core functions; find, fix, and strike.
A police or military unit (covert or overt) tasked with conducting deep operations may be given a variety of surveillance or disruptive tasks, such as infiltrating the financial dealings of an insurgency, or conducting overt checks to break up or expose an insurgent's patterns of behavior and lines of communications.

Doctrine is of the mind, a network of faith and knowledge reinforced by experience which lays the pattern for the utilization of men, equipment, and tactics.
Military doctrine changes, or should change, as the nature of warfare and the specific threat to a nation changes.
In practice, implementing and changing a military doctrine is a highly complex and time consuming activity that can take years or decades, and hence the same military doctrine is often used to attempt to support radicially different security strategies.

 Cuban Armed Forces Review: Military Doctrine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
There exists a conventional doctrine for the Revolutionary Armed Forces (FAR), which is based on a "system of scientific criteria" of the principles of military science and operational as well as tactical art, and also that the Cuban forces must be prepared to wage conventional, unconventional and clandestine warfare.
It can be said that FAR has adopted Soviet military doctrine and organizational principles, with some modifications to suit the smaller size and less sophisticated armament of the Cuban forces.
However, in an invasion of the island by U.S. forces, the FAR would implement a defensive doctrine that is its centerpiece of military doctrine.

In the new document, the military doctrine is "the aggregation of official views determining the military-political, military-strategic and military-economic guidelines to provide military security of the Russian Federation".
However, in the first section, the subsection "Managing the maintenance of military security" was renamed as "Directing the military organization of the state" (the contents have changed slightly) and was placed after the subsection entitled "Military organization of the state".

The Indian military has framed a new doctrine keeping in mind the duration of wars, which are likely to be short and intense.
The new doctrine says the future warfare would require synergetic application of land, sea and air forces to overwhelm the enemy by using all the defense forces in a coordinated manner.
The IPCS report, however, says that a very quick and coordinated joint operation by all the defense forces may be a hallmark of the U.S.-led campaigns in Iraq but this may not be a case in South Asia, where the risk of escalation of a nuclear exchange is clearly unacceptable.

 Real Tenets of Military Space Doctrine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Fundamental doctrine is based on analyses of history, applies in all operating mediums, and "consists of beliefs about the purposes of the military, the nature of war, and the relationship of military force to other instruments of power."
If it were developed, a fundamental doctrine might provide a historical basis for analyzing the purpose of military space forces and their relationship to other military forces and instruments of national power.
Since current "aerospace" doctrine fails to distinguish between the operating environment, characteristics, and capabilities of satellites vis-à-vis airplanes, it should not be surprising that the broad employment concepts defined in AFM 1-1 have little relevance to space forces.

 Overview: Russian Military Doctrine
The new Doctrine elaborates the provisions pertaining to the limited use of nuclear weapons that were set out four months earlier in the National Security Concept and in this regard marks a qualitatively new stage in the development of Russian nuclear doctrine.
The doctrine remained unchanged despite a flurry of proposals in 1996-97 to increase reliance on nuclear weapons in the face of the first phase of NATO enlargement.
Third, the 2000 Doctrine allows for the use of nuclear weapons in response to the use of other weapons of mass destruction (the provision is similar to the one adopted by the United States).

StudentofConflict RE:Soviet Military Doctrine & Tactics 12/11/2003 1:44:02 PM The point about commanders initiative is well put.I know of at least one army that inflicted severe defeats on the Soviets when it allowed leeway to its commanders, then was severely defeated when it tried to control everything from the top.
Rather than tactics and doctrine (both sides had good ideas on paper) W.P. would have been an issue of skill, their lack of a proffesionals (and perhaps motivation)from the private on up and their polically correct command structure I believe would have seriously hampered them in their doctrine.
