Abstract:

Ongoing wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Ukraine, Yemen, and else- where have led many policymakers to warn that the United States faces a world in which the relative peace of the immediate post Cold War era has been replaced by a world of escalating conflict and threats to U.S. security. Yet many U.S. defense decisions require a look beyond immediate crises and entail assumptions about the state of the world as it will be one, two, or even three decades in the future.
