Abstract:

The American national security establishment confronts many immediate problems Rogue states attempt to bully their neighbors and attack U.S. interests a war with Iraq has been followed by years of confrontation over sanctions and inspection and a half-century after a major war in Korea, America still faces a constant and unpredictable threat on that peninsula.
