Abstract : In the aftermath of World War II, the United States adopted a strategy of containment of the Soviet Union. That strategy, as originally espoused by George Kennan and refined by policy makers, guided United States policy and helped to structure US forces worldwide for close to forty years. The strategy was gradually replaced during the eighties and nineties as US policy shifted increasingly to one of not merely containing but rolling back communism. Today the Cold War is over and the United States is debating its proper role in the New World Order. This paper analyzes that new world and proposes national security policies, and a national and military strategy to best advance US interests.
