Abstract:

The profound global and regional changes since 1989, including the end of the Cold War, suggest reexamining U.S. interest abroad and reexamining the threats to those interests, both globally and regionally. Such a reexamination is a necessary precursor to force planning for the 1990s and beyond. This study is a preliminary qualitative attempt to identify generic global and regional U.S. interests, to suggest what threats to those interests remain, and to postulate additional future risks the United States might face that have military implications from present circumstances. This document should therefore be of interest to those engaged in planning and sizing ready and reserve forces for overseas operations.
