    schema:description "O'Hanlon summarizes the military doctrine and budgetary dimensions of the Clinton administration's "bottom-up review" plan for U.S. defense forces. He argues that U.S. strategists have not yet adjusted defense planning to the post-Soviet world and are focusing excessively, if somewhat understandably, on the vestiges of the cold war in places such as the Korean peninsula. He calls for Western support of more innovative approaches to UN peace operations and a reorientation of the NATO alliance away from concern with Russia and toward other combat scenarios."@en ;
