An indispensable force investing in America's National Guard and Reserves by John A Nagl ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, the National Guard and Reserves, which comprise nearly half of total U.S. military manpower, have served repeatedly in Iraq and Afghanistan while simultaneously protecting the homeland against threats ranging from natural disasters to terrorism. Yet America's need for operational service by its cost-effective Guard and Reserves will last beyond the current conflicts. In this report, authors John Nagl and Travis Sharp argue that although policymakers have taken great strides in recent years to support the Guard and Reserves, the U.S. government still is not investing sufficiently in the policies, laws, and budgets required for the Guard and Reserves to fulfill their current and future role in U.S. national security. Nagl and Sharp recommend that the Pentagon take advantage of this opportune moment, when the wartime experience of the Guard and Reserves make them more capable than ever before, to make further improvements in roles and missions, readiness, cost, education and the "continuum of service" concept of flexible 21st century personnel management
Hard choices responsible defense in an age of austerity by David W Barno ( )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Budget Control Act of 2011 has set the government on a path to dramatically reduce spending over the next decade, and a congressional "super committee" is now seeking to trim spending by more than $1 trillion beyond the cuts already enacted this year. As additional cuts are made, we must ask: how can the United States responsibly and effectively maximize its security in this era of growing fiscal austerity? This report seeks to provide answers to this question and highlights the implications of tough budget cuts on America's military capabilities. Hard Choices outlines four budget cut scenarios and evaluates possible trade-offs among force structure, end strength, procurement and overhead

America's cyber future security and prosperity in the information age ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"America's growing dependence on cyberspace has created new vulnerabilities that are being exploited as fast as or faster than the nation can respond. Cyber attacks can cause economic damage, physical destruction, and even the loss of human life. They constitute a serious challenge to U.S. national security and demand greater attention from American leaders. Despite productive efforts by the U.S. government and the private sector to strengthen cyber security, the increasing sophistication of cyber threats continues to outpace progress. To help U.S. policymakers address the growing danger of cyber insecurity, this two-volume report features accessible and insightful chapters on cyber security strategy, policy, and technology by some of the world's leading experts on international relations, national security, and information technology."--Publisher's website
Down payment defense guidance, 2013 defense budget and the risks of sequestration by Travis Sharp ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Pentagon's new strategic guidance and fiscal year 2013 budget request avoid major disruptions to current U.S. defense plans, but they make only a down payment on the defense budget cuts that may eventually be imposed through sequestration. The author argues that in a perverse twist, the guidance and budget may have made sequestration more likely because they did not propose major cuts to military force structure that might have spurred opposition from members of Congress. The author concludes that Congress should pass bipartisan legislation to repeal sequestration as soon as possible, and that sequestration is an irresponsible way to reduce defense spending that will make it difficult for the U.S. military to pursue its longstanding and generally successful strategy of global engagement

An Indispensable Force: Investing in America's National Guard and Reserves ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Though the United States required more and more from its National Guard and Reserves after the Sept. 11 attacks, the U.S. government initially failed to recognize the fundamental changes needed to support Guardsmen and Reservists as they deployed repeatedly abroad and protected the homeland. Then, as use of the Guard and Reserves in Afghanistan and Iraq peaked in 2005, Congress created the Commission on the National Guard and Reserves and directed it to evaluate immediate wartime needs as well as enduring U.S. national security interests. The commission's final January 2008 report, featuring six major conclusions and 95 recommendations, concluded that the U.S. government had "no reasonable alternative?" but to rely increasingly on the Guard and Reserves as an operational force that could participate routinely in ongoing military missions at home and abroad. It urged the U.S. government to train, equip and manage the Guard and Reserves in a manner commensurate with their invaluable role in protecting the nation. Two years later, how much progress has the U.S. government made toward implementing the commission's recommendations? To answer this critical question, the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) partnered with the former commissioners to evaluate continuing challenges and to propose potential solutions. To help advance reform efforts, this report identifies and offers recommendations in five thematic areas where further progress is most urgently needed: roles and missions (including homeland response and civil support), readiness, cost, education and the "continuum of service" concept of flexible personnel management
The sacrifice ahead the 2012 defense budget by Travis Sharp ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The fiscal year 2012 defense budget request is a break from the past ten years of budget growth, but it does not go far enough to rebalance defense spending priorities given the fiscal pressures and threats the United States faces, according to this policy brief. It recommends that the Department of Defense (DOD) pursue additional efficiencies savings and make modest reductions in its base budget to help shore up the U.S. economy, the core of America's global and military power. 'The FY 2012 budget requested by DOD will enable the U.S. military to defend the nation against many perils. But it will do little to stymie a threat that may ultimately prove more dangerous: America's growing debt, ' the report concludes. 'Over time, the economic consequences of indebtedness may crowd out investments in a U.S. military that undergirds international security; may render the United States more vulnerable to economic coercion; and may erode America's global stature and soft power. Relieving U.S. indebtedness demands preventive action by American society and government, including DOD.'
