Abstract : The disintegration of the Soviet Union dramatically changed the world security environment. Instead of focusing on global conflict and the containment of a monolithic threat, U.S. strategy must now focus on the potential that smaller but far more numerous hot spots may quickly turn into threats to our national security. The National Military Strategy cites four dangers to that security: (1) Proliferation of weapons of mass destruction; (2) Regional, ethnic, and religious threats to U.S. interests; (3) The possible failure of democratic reforms, especially in the former Soviet Union; and (4) The possible failure to build a strong and growing U.S. economy.
