U.S. strategy for Pakistan and Afghanistan by Richard Lee Armitage( )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Council on Foreign Relations sponsors Independent Task Forces to assess issues of current and critical importance to U.S. foreign policy and provide policymakers with concrete judgments and recommendations. Diverse in backgrounds and perspectives, Task Force members aim to reach a meaningful consensus on policy through private and non-partisan deliberations. Once launched, Task Forces are independent of CFR and solely responsible for the content of their reports. Task Force members are asked to join a consensus signifying that they endorse "the general policy thrust and judgments reached by the group, though not necessarily every finding and recommendation." Each Task Force member also has the option of putting forward an additional or a dissenting view. Members' affiliations are listed for identification purposes only and do not imply institutional endorsement. Task Force observers participate in discussions, but are not asked to join the consensus. --Book Jacket
A comprehensive approach to North Korea by Richard Lee Armitage( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the Agreed Framework (AF) was signed by the United States and North Korea on October 21, 1994, the security situation on the Korean peninsula and in Northeast Asia has changed qualitatively for the worse. The discovery last year of a suspect North Korean nuclear site and the August 31 launch of a Taepo Dong missile have combined to raise fundamental questions about Pyongyang's intentions, its commitment to the agreement, and the possibility of North-South reconciliation. These developments also raise profound questions about the sustainability of current U.S. policy toward the Korean peninsula

Natural allies a blueprint for the future of U.S.-India relations by Richard Lee Armitage( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The emergence of India as a new major global power is transforming the world's geopolitical landscape, with profound implications for the future trajectory of our century and for America's own global interests. A strengthened U.S.-India strategic partnership is thus imperative in this new era. The transformation of U.S. ties with New Delhi over the past 10 years, led by Presidents Clinton and Bush, stands as one of the most significant triumphs of recent American foreign policy. It has also been a bipartisan success. In the last several years alone, the United States and India have completed a landmark civil nuclear cooperation agreement, enhanced military ties, expanded defense trade, increased bilateral trade and investment and deepened their global political cooperation. Many prominent Indians and Americans, however, now fear this rapid expansion of ties has stalled. Past projects remain incomplete, few new ideas have been embraced by both sides, and the forward momentum that characterized recent cooperation has subsided. The Obama administration has taken significant steps to break through this inertia, including with its Strategic Dialogue this spring and President Obama's planned state visit to India in November 2010. Yet there remains a sense among observers in both countries that this critical relationship is falling short of its promise

The QDR in perspective : meeting America's national security needs in the 21st century( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Congress has required by law that every four years the Department of Defense conduct what would outside of government simply be called a --strategic review of its existing plans and programs. The Department calls this process the -- Quadrennial Defense Review or the --QDR for short. ... This latest QDR continues the trend of the last 15 years. It is a wartime QDR, prepared by a Department that is focused -- understandably and appropriately -- on responding to the threats America now faces and winning the wars in which America is now engaged. Undoubtedly the QDR is of value in helping Congress review and advance the current vital missions of the Department. But for the reasons already stated, it is not the kind of long term planning document which the statute envisions. Congress constituted our Independent Panel to review the QDR, assess the long term threats facing America, and produce recommendations regarding the capabilities which will be necessary to meet those threats. We have deliberated for over five months, in the process reviewing a mass of documents (both classified and unclassified), interviewing dozens of witnesses from the Department, and consulting a number of outside experts."--Introduction

U.s.-japan alliance : anchoring stability in asia by Richard Lee Armitage( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new report on the U.S.-Japan alliance comes at a time of drift in the relationship. As leaders in both the United States and Japan face a myriad of other challenges, the health and welfare of one of the world's most important alliances is endangered. Although the arduous efforts of Assistant Secretary of State Kurt Campbell and his colleagues in both governments have largely kept the alliance stable, today's challenges and opportunities in the region and beyond demand more. Together, we face the re-rise of China and its attendant uncertainties, North Korea with its nuclear capabilities and hostile intentions, and the promise of Asia's dynamism. Elsewhere, there are the many challenges of a globalized world and an increasingly complex security environment. A stronger and more equal alliance is required to adequately address these and other great issues of the day. This report presents a consensus view of the members of a bipartisan study group on the U.S.-Japan alliance. The report specifically addresses energy, economics and global trade, relations with neighbors, and security-related issues. Within these areas, the study group offers policy recommendations for Japan and the United States, which span near- and long-term time frames. These recommendations are intended to bolster the alliance as a force for peace, stability, and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond
Losing the golden hour : an insider's view of Iraq's reconstruction by James Stephenson( )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In emergency medicine, "the golden hour" is the first hour after injury during which treatment greatly increases survivability. In post-conflict transition terminology, it is the first year after hostilities end. Without steadily improving conditions then, popular support declines and chances for economic, political, and social transformation begin to evaporate. James Stephenson believes we have lost Iraq's golden hour. A veteran of postconflict reconstruction on three continents, he ran the Iraq mission of the Agency for International Development in 2004-05 with more than a thousand employees

Strengthening fragile partnerships : an agenda for the future of U.S.-Central Asia relations( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan have made considerable strides since 1991. But despite these achievements, Central Asia remains fragile and sometimes volatile. The region requires greater attention and a more sustained focus on the part of the United States government. And U.S. policy toward Central Asia requires greater strategic direction. Nearly 23 years after the Soviet collapse, ethnic tensions, exacerbated by economic competition, simmer and threaten to destroy the fragile foundations of this multi-ethnic region. Notwithstanding impressive growth rates, most Central Asian economies are weak and underlying fiscal fundamentals are poor. Governance has been only weakly responsive to popular demands and disproportionately influenced by national elites. The influence of criminal groups has grown across the region. And a combustible mix of corruption, narcotics, poverty, and terrorism threatens all five states in Central Asia. In such an environment, transnational cooperation is essential. The United States has, from the very moment of their independence, been a partner to Central Asia in these endeavors. But forces within Central Asia, as well as neighboring powers, now challenge American interests in the region as never before. But an honest appraisal needs to acknowledge the many shortcomings of these American efforts. Clearly, it is time for Americans and Central Asians, working together, to reassess their relations in this important but volatile region. Our study group has considered U.S. interests in Central Asia. On that basis, we propose guidelines for American policy. In key areas, we put forth a bipartisan action agenda aimed at creating a more effective and enduring partnership between the United States and the nations of Central Asia

The U.S. Security Role in East Asia -- Not An Outdated Milestone, But a Cornerstone of America's Future( )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Few people truly understand what the United States is about in its extensive East Asia security policies and defense relationships. Many people harbor serious misconceptions about what we're doing there. The public is being told some misleading things about our security role in Asia which, if not corrected, could erode the foundation of the most successful regional policy the United States has today. I have chosen the National Defense University, and this symposium, as a decidedly sympathetic audience to challenge and rebut this stream of negative thinking before it becomes accepted wisdom in this town. Most of you will have heard of, or read, the new book by Yale historian Paul Kennedy entitled "The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers." A survey of the past 500 years, it examines the states or coalitions of states which rose to economic greatness, how their economic power translated into political power and military strength, why they went to war, why the winners won and why the losers lost, and the consequences of their national policies. Professor Kennedy's lesson from history? For a great power to remain great, it must keep reinvesting in its manufacturing base, always looking ahead to the next generation of technology, and at the same time, it should resist the temptation to spend scarce national funds to hang on to far-flung military roles and missions that may have outlived their economic utility in a changing world. It is a provocative thesis. He sees the United States today clinging to a network of military alliances formed at the end of the Second World War, when American supremacy in the international economy was at its peak. He warns that other powers are catching up, growing faster by spending less on defense and more on technologies that may push them past the United States in the years ahead. Professor Kennedy's analysis suggests that we are making the wrong investments as a nation, choosing "guns" when we really need more "butter."
