Abstract : The author states that despite the vastly changed world order, basic principles of international relations still apply, and the United States would be ill-served by abandoning those principles. He argues that the current U.S. national security strategy and its derivative national military strategy are products of change and continuity resulting from the dynamics established in interstate relations over the past 50 years as well as by the end of the Cold War. The seeming end to the threat posed by the East-West confrontation of the past 50 years notwithstanding, the international community still looks to the United States, the world's only super- power, for leadership.
