Abstract:

The current global political environment is unclear and difficult to assess. The future is incomprehensible and unpredictable. Yet, in spite of this uncertainty, the U.S. defense establishment, reacting to the disintegration of the threat posed by the Soviet Empire, is being radically reduced and restructured. Even as defense spending is diminished and the United States turns its attention toward strengthening its economy, the National Security Strategy of the United States contains a policy requiring the country to retain the capability to reconstitute its military forces to protect its national interests if they are threatened in the future.
