Abstract : International crises since World War II have revealed the vulnerability of defense arrangements through the lack of an adequate system of strategic warning (as distinct from tactical warning systems). The slowness and uncertainty of the decision-making processes at all levels of government in a time of crisis should lead one to examine the strategic warning, its reliability and measurability.
