Examines how the international security environment has changed since the previous national military strategy was produced in 2004 and how these changes have shaped the 2011 national military strategy. The NMS serves two main purposes: to assess the global security situation and some emerging forces likely to mold it in the future, and to identify a set of discrete national military objectives that define the main missions to be undertaken by the armed forces. The 2011 NMS discusses challenges presented by ten years of continuous combat operations, the longest span in our country's history. During this time, America's adversaries have been innovative: state actors have been arming, nonstate actors have been subverting and the nexus of state and nonstate actors has become even more threatening. The new NMS incorporates these recent developments and aims to supply the armed forces with strategic direction for the future.
Introduction -- Background -- Major themes in the 2011 national military strategy -- Implications of a new philosophical approach -- Focusing the national military strategy.
