Virtuous War/Virtual Theory | International Affairs | Oxford Academic
Strategic discourse and the virtuos of force in the twentieth century have become increasingly virtual. Leading the way, as the dominant actor in global politics, is the United States, whose diplomatic and military policies are now based on technological and representational forms of discipline, deterrence, and compellence that could best be described as virtuous war.
At the cyborg heart of virtuous war is the technical capability and ethical imperative to threaten and, if necessary, actualize violence from a distance—with no or minimal casualties. There is a clear and present need to develop a virtual theory that can assess the perils and promises of this intimate relationship between modes of cer and violence.
