Gansler calls for a "significant cultural change" on the part of the security community to adjust to the 21st century realities, all the while recognizing that the nation's financial crisis will reduce discretionary defense funding and Bush-era annual supplementals.

  • A series of internal Department of Defense restructuring.

VI. PEACEKEEPING RESOURCES
Daniel H. Levine is an assistant professor in the School of Public Policy and an assistant research scholar in the Institute for Philosophy and Public Policy

"If we continue to think that building America's might means only building America's military, we are in real danger of losing the next decade's important wars."

Levine argues that our military has mastered conventional maneuver warfare, yet is unlikely to spend most of its time engaged in these fights. Indeed the Department of Defense has made "stability operations" a core priority. These involve a range of operations from peacekeeping to counter-insurgency. Generally they involve lower levels of force and focus on restoring order and security to the civilian population rather than defeating an enemy.

This involves more than simply integrating civil and humanitarian aid resources from the State Department into the military operation. In the context of stability operations, military force tends to be successful when used in support of an existing political arrangement.
