Abstract:

The recent breakup of the former Soviet Union signals the end of over forty years of Cold War. The relative certainty of EAST-WEST confrontation is now replaced with a multi-polar world dominated by internal regional issues and potential conflict. Based on our Cold War experience, the U.S. ability to develop, coordinate and implement National Security strategy and policy to effectively respond to regional issues is questionable. In light of the emerging realities of the New World Order, the U.S. must now reexamine how it develops National Security strategy and policy and how its National Security agencies are organized and managed to implement that policy. A strong NSC and supporting staff with clearly defined roles, responsibilities, limitations and properly resourced is required to meet the challenges of the 1990s.
