Transforming the U.S. Global Defense Posture
The United States is undertaking an unprecedented review of global U.S. military deployment and capabilities in order to tackle new security threats like terrorism, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and failed states. "In transforming U.S. global defense posture, we want to make our forces more responsive given the world's many strategic uncertainties," said Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Doug Feith in a Dec. 3 speech hosted by CSIS. "We want to make our military presence increasingly rotational with the emphasis on the capabilities of forces rather than the numbers of forces."
