Abstract:

Analysis of differences between general war and limited war and impact of end to program planning for general war. Reconstitution program planning was to be able to handle a resurgentemergent global threat REGT but such programs have been de-emphasized by the current administration. Current active and reserve forces plus mobilization are only programmed as capable of handling two near-term major regional contingencies MRCs--limited war. They are not sufficient for general war. Author concludes that internal DOD planning should still exist for general war against a resurgentemergent global threat. In the absence of programming and planning for general war, navy nuclear forces are the best hedge against an regt and offer opportunity to extend deterrence
