Strengthening Regional Cooperation in Central Asia( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The world continues to get smaller, and the neighborhoods that it is composed of are becoming more dependent upon one another. Today's threats to stability are trans-national in nature and rarely contained within the borders of one country. In most cases the consequences of a major terrorist action or environmental disaster will quickly overwhelm the management capability and response assets of the affected nation. When that occurs the maintenance of stability relies on effective regional, and if required, international assistance. A government that attempts to "go it alone" in today's environment runs the risk of losing the confidence of its citizens and, as a result, its viability. As part of the United States' active efforts to forge new, productive international relationships to meet the challenges of the 21st century, encouraging stronger regional ties where few currently exist is a key policy initiative
Addressing transnational threats in Southeast Asia : environmental security and counter terrorism by Kent Hughes Butts( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This conference was a follow up to the June 2003 Defense Environmental and International Cooperation Conference held in Bangkok, Thailand. The purpose of this conference was to promote multilateral defense and Counter Terrorism cooperation, to identify the best practices for the prevention, mitigation, consequence management, and response to man-made and natural disasters that threaten governmental legitimacy. It reflected the workshop results and advice from regional attendees of that conference. The Manila conference brought together senior military and civilian leaders from Southeast Asia and the United States, international academics, the private sector, technical agencies, and Non-Governmental Organizations to examine critical Environmental Security issues of common interest. Terrorist organizations in Southeast Asia have demonstrated the ability to exploit environmental disasters or degradation to undermine governmental legitimacy and gain popular support. With these ongoing terrorist attacks, their efforts to obtain Weapons of Mass Destruction, and their stated objective of destroying regional governments, a major contribution to regional stability can be affected by developing concepts for regional military cooperation in preventing Environmental Terrorist activities. The three objectives of the Conference were to: explore key Environmental Security issues that are central to the stability of the region or that encourage terrorist activities; identify military roles in preventing Environmental Terrorist activities and attacks on critical infrastructure; and develop multilateral plans for preventing and responding to man-made or natural disasters

From 6-19 June 2004, a team composed of staff members from the United States Army War College's Center for Strategic Leadership (CSL) and the National Defense University traveled to Indonesia and Malaysia in support of the Pacific Command's Subject Matter Exchange Program.

At the behest of our hosts in Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur, these four prepared and delivered presentations on the United States' Defense Organization, Structures and Capabilities; Strategic Conceptual Development and its Application in the U.S. National Security Strategy; the Evolving Homeland Security Mission in the United States and its Supporting Infrastructure; and the Combined Forces Land Component Command campaign plan for Operation Iraqi Freedom. All or portions of these briefs were presented to the Kodiklat Angkatan Darat (KODIKLAT AD), the Indonesian Army Education Training and Doctrine Command; the Sekola Kenmondo (SESKO-TNI), Indonesia 's Joint War College; the Lembaga Kitahanan Nasional (LEMHANNAS), the Republic of Indonesia's National Resilience Institute; and Maktab Pertahanan Angkatan Tentera, the Malaysian Armed Forces Defense College
Trilateral Strategic Defense Capability Planning Symposium( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Republic of the Philippines (RP) has undertaken a bold initiative to reform its national security architecture in order to more effectively address regional terrorist and other transnational threats. This strategic planning initiative has developed the Emerging Security Environment to 2022 document, a National Military Strategy, a National Internal Security Plan, and a Multi-Year Defense Capability Planning System (MYDCaPS). The MYDCaPS initiative has its roots in a two-year long series of trilateral, Republic of the Philippines, Australia and United States (U.S.) Senior Leader Strategic Planning Symposia. The Australian Embassy-Manila hosted the latest event, the Trilateral Strategic Defense Capability Planning Symposium, from 13-15 July 2004

The Day After: The Army in a Post-Conflict Iraq. Volume 14-02( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The world's geostrategic environment, dramatically influenced by terrorism, continues to undergo change marked by a wide array of economic, technical, societal, religious cultural, and physical challenges. Nowhere is this more apparent than in recent calls by the United States for regime change in Iraq. And assuming a regime change does occur, forced by ground combat in a "coalition of the willing" led by the U.S., the most challenging and important phase of the operation may not be the actual combat, but the post-conflict requirements that follow. Determining the role of the Army the day after" and beyond in Iraq is critical to understanding the ability of the United States to continue the Global War on Terror while preparing for other unforeseen future contingencies. This issue paper summarizes the results of several post-conflict requirements symposia sponsored by the U.S. Army War College's Center for Strategic Leadership over a period of three years and considers these results in light of the Army's Title 10 responsibilities in post-conflict Iraq. In particular, it provides an outline of the general resource requirements for the major subordinate commands (MACOMs) of the Army who are responsible for planning and executing these responsibilities. Additionally, it considers the impact of other ongoing operations and plausible future operations that may drive risk management decisions by the MACOMs as they plan and execute tasks required by the strategic environment in Iraq and the region
