Abstract : The continued erosion of a direct or indirect Soviet threat has ushered in an era of change and the possibilities for a new world order. Tensions resulting from the environment of general instability that we call LIC are occurring daily through put the world. These events highlight a host of destabilizing factors characterizing a restive world, all of which present an array of unprecedented threats and challenges to the military Services and diplomatic problem resolutions. In order to more effectively operate within the LIC environment, the LIC Instability Indicators Study is an unclassified tool to assist analysts and planners in the development of intelligence assessments and operational planning to address generic threats to US security interests within the LIC arena.
