2016 U.S. Elections and the Future of U.S. Military Forces
Please join CSIS for a conversation on how the 2016 elections will affect the future of U.S. military forces. The next president will face a variety of strategic challenges, from Russia and China to global terrorism and North Korea. To meet these challenges, the president need to make numerous programmatic decisions that will affect the long term future of U.S. military forces, from dealing with a modernization bow wave, to launching the next generation of U.S. nuclear arms, to setting the size and structure of all four military services. Campaign rhetoric so far gives some insight into potential continuities and discontinuities, but many uncertainties remain.
Mark F. Cancian, Senior Adviser, International Security Program, CSIS will also present a brief overview of the related and recently released CSIS study, “Alternative Defense Strategies in a Cost-Capped Environment”.
