Abstract:

Consider what advice should be given to the United States Ambassador to Peru by his military advisors. Subsequently, what should and can the United States do to help the Peruvians and their armed forces devise a strategy for defeating their communist insurgency In formulating an individual policy dealing with Peru, the US has two choices. The first is to argue that Peru is not important enough to warrant the effort that would be necessary to help change the existing, overwhelming conditions that threaten democracy and society in general within the country. This paper will argue the second option it is that the USs strategic objectives, as they apply to Peru, are valid and will discuss the avenues which the United States has assist Peru in combatting its communist insurgency.
