The U.S. global defense posture is an integral and critical component of the U.S. security strategy. The term global defense posture of the United States refers to the size, location, types, and capabilities of the U.S. forward military forces. Current posture includes elements of the Cold War basing system developed to support the containment strategy, modified in line with the deployment and engagement of U.S. forces in southwest Asia since 1990 and as a consequence of the Department of Defense s 2004 Global Posture Review.
