Abstract:

This documental briefing synthesizes the results of a research project, entitled Future Security Requirements for the Gulf. It represents an effort to pull together much of the detailed work conducted during this project and focuses on the principal factors driving the future environment in the greater Gulf region, on the implications of the resulting findings for future Gulf security and for the U.S. regional posture in the area, and on a broad examination of alternative U.S. approaches to its security in the Gulf. The overall project objective was to provide a political-military assessment of security prospects in the Gulf over the next 3 to 5 years, challenges the U.S. military are likely to encounter as they support U.S. national objectives in the region, and the broader implications for future U.S. security planning.
