Iran : time for a new approach : report of an independent task force sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations by Council on Foreign Relations( Book )

14 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past quarter century, relations between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran have been trapped by legacies of the past. The aftermath of the 1979 revolution transformed Iran from a staunch ally into one of the most intractable opponents of the United States in the region and beyond. Today, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have positioned American troops along Iran's borders, making the United States and Iran wary competitors and neighbors who nonetheless possess some overlapping interests. All of this is occurring against a backdrop of the problems posed by Iran's nuclear program and its involvement with terrorism. Clearly, contending with Iran will constitute one of the most complex and pressing challenges facing the next U.S. administration. The Council on Foreign Relations established this Independent Task Force to consider both Iran's domestic reality and its foreign policy and to examine ways the United States can foster a relationship with Iran that better protects and promotes American interests in a critical part of the world

The last warrior : Andrew Marshall and the shaping of modern American defense strategy by Andrew F Krepinevich( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andrew Marshall is a Pentagon legend. For more than four decades he has served as Director of the Office of Net Assessment, the Pentagon's internal think tank, under twelve defense secretaries and eight administrations. Yet Marshall has been on the cutting edge of strategic thinking even longer than that. At the RAND Corporation during its golden age in the 1950s and early 1960s, Marshall helped formulate bedrock concepts of US nuclear strategy that endure to this day; later, at the Pentagon, he pioneered the development of "net assessment"--a new analytic framework for understanding the long-term military competition between the United States and the Soviet Union. Following the Cold War, Marshall successfully used net assessment to anticipate emerging disruptive shifts in military affairs, including the revolution in precision warfare and the rise of China as a major strategic rival of the United States. In The Last Warrior, Andrew Krepinevich and Barry Watts--both former members of Marshall's staff--trace Marshall's intellectual development from his upbringing in Detroit during the Great Depression to his decades in Washington as an influential behind-the-scenes advisor on American defense strategy. The result is a unique insider's perspective on the changes in US strategy from the dawn of the Cold War to the present day

Gates shows that, contrary to conventional wisdom, there was extraordinary continuity of policy from one President to the next, most strikingly from Carter to Reagan: the former laid the foundations for many of the latter's policies, including CIA covert action in the Third World, efforts to undermine the legitimacy of the Soviet regime at home, continued strategic modernization, and the conduct of economic warfare against the USSR - policies all dramatically expanded and pursued with enthusiasm by Reagan

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Upon taking office, President Obama directed a comprehensive review of U.S. ballistic missile defense (BMD) policies, strategies, plans, and programs. The United States Congress also mandated that the Department of Defense (DoD) conduct a review of ballistic missile defense strategy and policy. This report contains the findings and recommendations pursuant to this guidance. It addresses the matters of particular interest to Congress, and does so in a broad framework that reflects the President's guidance and sets out associated policy and programmatic decisions reflected in the current budget proposals. This report serves multiple purposes. It is intended to match U.S. strategies, policies, and capabilities to the requirements of the 21st-century threats facing the nation now and in the future and to inform DoD planning, programming, budgeting, and oversight. It is also intended to facilitate executive-legislative dialogue and decision making, dialogue with allies and partners, and informed public discussion of key policy choices
