The QDR in perspective meeting America's national security needs in the 21st century : the final report of the Quadrennial Defense Review Independent Panel ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
"Congress has required by law that every four years the Department of Defense conduct what would outside of government simply be called a --strategic review of its existing plans and programs. The Department calls this process the -- Quadrennial Defense Review or the --QDR for short. ... This latest QDR continues the trend of the last 15 years. It is a wartime QDR, prepared by a Department that is focused -- understandably and appropriately -- on responding to the threats America now faces and winning the wars in which America is now engaged. Undoubtedly the QDR is of value in helping Congress review and advance the current vital missions of the Department. But for the reasons already stated, it is not the kind of long term planning document which the statute envisions. Congress constituted our Independent Panel to review the QDR, assess the long term threats facing America, and produce recommendations regarding the capabilities which will be necessary to meet those threats. We have deliberated for over five months, in the process reviewing a mass of documents (both classified and unclassified), interviewing dozens of witnesses from the Department, and consulting a number of outside experts."--Introduction.
U.S. strategy for Pakistan and Afghanistan by Council on Foreign Relations ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
It is now nine years since the United States first went to war in Afghanistan. The rationale for doing so in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks was clear. Now, however, the United States has embarked on a different and considerably more ambitious undertaking in Afghanistan that affects, and is affected by, the complex political currents of Pakistan and its border regions. It is not clear that U.S. interests warrant such an investment. Nor is it clear that the effort will succeed. This task force sought to identify U.S. interests and objectives in Pakistan and Afghanistan, assess existing policy, explore the potential of alternative strategies, and make recommendations for future policy. The Task Force offers a qualified endorsement of President Obama's approach to the region, including the expansion of U.S. assistance to Pakistan, the surge of military forces in Afghanistan to roughly one hundred thousand, and the commitment to begin drawing down those forces in July 2011. Yet the Task Force also highlights a number of potential problems with the policy, emphasizing Pakistan's tolerance of and support for dangerous terrorist groups, weak state institutions, contentious relations with India, and nuclear weapons. The Task Force recommends easing U.S. trade restrictions on Pakistani textile exports, assisting a rapid recovery from the floods, deepening an ongoing dialogue on nuclear issues, and increasing the military's capacity to defeat militants on the battlefield. In Afghanistan, the Task Force notes that the Obama administration will need to find a way to address the government's weakness, corruption, and political division; determine the terms of reference for negotiations with the Taliban; increase the quantity and, even more, the quality of Afghan security forces; and encourage the development of Afghanistan's economy while decreasing the production of drugs.

Natural allies a blueprint for the future of U.S.-India relations by Richard Lee Armitage ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The emergence of India as a new major global power is transforming the world's geopolitical landscape, with profound implications for the future trajectory of our century and for America's own global interests. A strengthened U.S.-India strategic partnership is thus imperative in this new era. The transformation of U.S. ties with New Delhi over the past 10 years, led by Presidents Clinton and Bush, stands as one of the most significant triumphs of recent American foreign policy. It has also been a bipartisan success. In the last several years alone, the United States and India have completed a landmark civil nuclear cooperation agreement, enhanced military ties, expanded defense trade, increased bilateral trade and investment and deepened their global political cooperation. Many prominent Indians and Americans, however, now fear this rapid expansion of ties has stalled. Past projects remain incomplete, few new ideas have been embraced by both sides, and the forward momentum that characterized recent cooperation has subsided. The Obama administration has taken significant steps to break through this inertia, including with its Strategic Dialogue this spring and President Obama's planned state visit to India in November 2010. Yet there remains a sense among observers in both countries that this critical relationship is falling short of its promise.

Strengthening fragile partnerships an agenda for the future of U.S.-Central Asia relations ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan have made considerable strides since 1991. But despite these achievements, Central Asia remains fragile and sometimes volatile. The region requires greater attention and a more sustained focus on the part of the United States government. And U.S. policy toward Central Asia requires greater strategic direction. Nearly 23 years after the Soviet collapse, ethnic tensions, exacerbated by economic competition, simmer and threaten to destroy the fragile foundations of this multi-ethnic region. Notwithstanding impressive growth rates, most Central Asian economies are weak and underlying fiscal fundamentals are poor. Governance has been only weakly responsive to popular demands and disproportionately influenced by national elites. The influence of criminal groups has grown across the region. And a combustible mix of corruption, narcotics, poverty, and terrorism threatens all five states in Central Asia. In such an environment, transnational cooperation is essential. The United States has, from the very moment of their independence, been a partner to Central Asia in these endeavors. But forces within Central Asia, as well as neighboring powers, now challenge American interests in the region as never before. But an honest appraisal needs to acknowledge the many shortcomings of these American efforts. Clearly, it is time for Americans and Central Asians, working together, to reassess their relations in this important but volatile region. Our study group has considered U.S. interests in Central Asia. On that basis, we propose guidelines for American policy. In key areas, we put forth a bipartisan action agenda aimed at creating a more effective and enduring partnership between the United States and the nations of Central Asia.

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Since the Agreed Framework (AF) was signed by the United States and North Korea on October 21, 1994, the security situation on the Korean peninsula and in Northeast Asia has changed qualitatively for the worse. The discovery last year of a suspect North Korean nuclear site and the August 31 launch of a Taepo Dong missile have combined to raise fundamental questions about Pyongyang's intentions, its commitment to the agreement, and the possibility of North-South reconciliation. These developments also raise profound questions about the sustainability of current U.S. policy toward the Korean peninsula.
