A New US Defense Strategy for a New Era: Military Superiority, Agility, and Efficiency

Nov 4, 2012

Summary of the Findings of the Defense Advisory Committee, Peter G. Peterson Foundation and Stimson.

“This Defense Advisory Committee notes and endorses the changes already being taken by the Department of Defense to rebalance US forces toward an incrementally and proportionally greater emphasis on Asia and the Pacific. These include redeployments of naval forces and the greater use of rotational deployments of ground and air forces in East Asia. However, we conclude that more far-ranging changes should be implemented over time in US defense strategy and budgets.”
