Abstract : Since the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War, the National Security Strategy of the United States has shifted its focus from containment to engagement and enlargement. Increasingly, the global economy is at the core of this strategy. As America's strategy shifts, there is growing opinion that, since most of the threats in the new world order will be economic rather than military, the role of the military will decrease in the administration of this strategy. One of the results of this thinking is a suggestion that it is time for the United States to withdraw the bulk of its necessary presence from the Asia-Pacific region. This study shows that military presence and, when necessary, intervention is required in the region, and that, in fact, CINCPAC operations will play an increasingly vital role in the execution of America's National Security Strategy.
