Abstract:

This paper examines current policy and recommends considerations for developing a military strategy for the 21st century. It reviews the existing National Security Strategy - NSS and current National Military Strategy NMS to frame requirements for a future NMS. It will identify what kind of military is required for the future emerging security environment of the new millenium. It will also explore the type of force structure necessary for this changing security environment. Finally and most critically, it will challenge the remnants of the -Cold War apparatus that supported a strategy of containment to determine its relevance for the imperative of engagement.
