Abstract:

This report defines and then analyzes the merit of the nations present policy concerning the conduct of Major Theater War. Using the nations interests and the elements of power available to achieve those interests as background, it establishes that our present policy requiring the capability to execute two, nearly simultaneous, Major Theater Wars remains relevant for the near future. This conclusion is reached after first discussing the basis of the policy, and then refuting many of the arguments that criticize our policy concerning Major Theater War.
