Rethinking America's Security

1991

 

During the Cold War, American national security seemed clearly defined:  to protect against the overarching threat of the Soviet Union and Communist expansion.  With the demise of Communism, America was forced to reconsider its role in the world as dramatically as it did after victory in World War II.  The report from this Assembly calls for greater roles for Germany and Japan in multilateral actions and encourages regional bodies to strengthen their peace keeping machinery.
