Of particular prior importance was work on the changing nature of warfare for the National Intelligence Council, where techniques for looking out to 2020 were developed. This paper is in some ways a summary of all that previous work the state of the world the state of conflict in the world U.S. foreign policy, especially after 911 the global war on terrorism the future of U.S. forces after Iraq and how the U.S. Navy relates to all of this. The paper is set after Iraq, but at the time of its writing, it was not clear when Iraq would be over, and what over would look like.
