Abstract:

As we approach the 21st century, there will be no shortage of challenges for the Armed Forces of our Nation. These challenges will be the result of a world that is currently undergoing a metamorphosis. Today we see numerous emerging countries experiencing enormous economic growth. With this new economic growth comes a commensurate ability to procure military power. The diffusion of technology and a burgeoning world arms market make available for procurement some of the latest high tech weaponry and, for those who desire them, possibly even weapons of mass destruction. At the same time we see this shifting balance in economic and military power, we continue to see the worlds resources becoming more scarce. The competition for them always has been and always will be a dominating theme in international relations. This mix of emerging economies, competition for resources, and new military might is a proven recipe for instability.
