    Abstract PDF
    Although the international society was strongly against the war on Iraq, the U.S. alone made steps toward attacking Saddam Houssein-controlled Iraq. There were many alerts in the strong countries before the war, and there were also countless efforts to stop the U.S. from acting out war on Iraq. However, the efforts were not enough to have an effect on controlling the U.S. power. The end of the short Iraqi war has given us many lessons. First, in the wars to come, special strategies through special forces will become more and more important along with regular warfare. Second, the accurateness of communication and joint operations will become a definite source of winning in the future-war. Third, precise strategem and highly qualified leadership will optimize combat procedure during real-time war. The Bush administration has won the peoples' and military's confidence, and the troops on duty were able to maintain a high level of morale. Fourth, the Iraqi war pointed out that to keep peace in the U.S, the allies, and in international society, preventive action and preemptive attack is needed at times. Fifth, with high-tech gear and equipment, the U. S. could end the war quickly with minimized number of troops. This could have an important meaning in the front-line positioning and could lead to reduction of the U. S. troops in foreign territories. This will also lead to a direct effect on the U. S. forces in Korea. Sixth, as the Iraqi-war ended in a short time period with small casualties, we can foresee that the probability of the U. S. using military pressure on solving the North Korean nuclear problem may continue to rise.

    Abstract PDF
    The Chosun dynasty developed a system to enrich and strengthen a country through employing officers both from civil and military service. This was the effort to develop the country through an objective examination called “KwaKeo." When the country was in danger by the Japanese, Yi Sun-sin who was one of the military service members, participated in sea combat and defeated the Japanese 10 times at sea. He saved the country from a dangerous situation. Despite numerous academic studies about Yi, Sun-sin, there is not even one study about his academic record and promotion history. This paper tries to explore Yi, Sun-sin's success in military service examination and also compares Yi Sun-Sin with his colleague, Yi, Il. This is dedicated to our present ROK army officers who are trying to overcome the barriers and unify the country in the current situation. Also, through Yi Sun-sin's life, this paper tries to make the officers realize how important military practice and training are.
