Abstract:

The announcement of the Nixon Doctrine at Guam in 1969, proclaimed to the world that the United States was fully committed to a Strategy of Peace. There is some question whether or not the Strategy of Realistic deterrence can effectively support the Nixon Doctrine and is there a role for the US Army in response to the Doctrine. The document discusses the genesis of the Nixon Doctrine and its expressed goals by extracting the content of the Doctrine and by making an assessment of the Strategy of Realistic Deterrence in conjunction with the perceived world threats. Finally it examines the role of the Army to determine what its response must be in support of the Nixon Doctrine.
