Abstract : The author assesses potential aspects of the future international security environment which will succeed the post-Cold War era and provides a context for sketching the types of military capabilities the nation will require in about 20 years. He defines national security interests, describes the future international security environment, identifies derivative future national security objectives and strategic concepts, and discerns the military capabilities that will be required in the early 21st century. The author's analysis should highlight to American national security strategists, political leaders, and military strategists issues that should be considered in making the decisions which will shape the U.S. armed forces of the 21st century.
