The new military strategy
It had been decided that the military is organized through four parts namely land, air, sea and cyber. The reformation enables the military to acquaint itself with new technological advancements and to be successful even with limited budget. The reformation had to take place because of the original rule book’s conflict with the constitution. The military aims to uphold the constitution and protect the people from forces that deny its sovereignty.
The reformed document has given hints on how to protect the country from threats posed by lower basin countries on the issue of the Grand Renaissance Dam. The military will be deployed only if war is the last resort and will be trained on ways to complete the war within a short time and successfully.
INSA has been leading the fight against threats posed by parties that want to drive the country into chaos by creating and sharing false information.
