Abstract:

What does it mean to win In the complex world of international affairs of today, a simple answer to this relatively straightforward question seems to elude both the amateur and professional observer. A definition of the contest, a listing of the participants, the rules being followed, and an identification of the objective are required in order to determine what win really means. Before setting our course on a strategy which hopefully will lead to a win, we must determine what win means, or risk the chance of not recognizing our victory when and if we do achieve it. This research study is a part of a larger study group effort addressing this subject. This portion of the study endeavors, through an examination of the general political, economic, military, and social conditions of the world today, to establish a backdrop, or an environment, in which the meaning of win can be determined.
