Abstract : This special report considers the utility of security assistance in peace and war. History has amply demonstrated the requirement for and the effectiveness of security assistance to friendly nations during wartime. Functions of wartime aid include regional stabilization, strategic choke-points protection, economy of force, and force multipliers. Wartime industrial capability is largely determined by existing aid programs. Some potentially useful means exist for employing security assistance during transition to war; however, more planning is needed, e.g., stocking, coordination, funding, and transportation. (Author)
