Abstract:

The author, former Assistant Secretary of Defense Leonard Sullivan, maintains that in the post-cold war world, old alliances, structured for containment, will not be adequate. Instead, regional security apparatuses RSAs will be needed to deal with problems which issue from specific socio-cultural and economic conditions, rather than from ideology or the pursuit of traditional national interests by the superpowers. These RSAs will be charged with the collective enforcement of international laws and standards, as well as those specific to the regions involved. He concludes that the technologies developed during the cold war may be used by appropriately structured RSA forces in meeting the challenges of the new world disorder. Regional security apparatuses RSAs, Paramilitary forces, Nonmilitary forces, Interstate conflict, Ethnically-based nations, World disorder.
