The Chemical Corps has served the nation proudly in war and peace. From the deadly trenches of Word War I to the hot sands of Arabia in , the Corps has kept the Army ready to survive and fight in a nuclear, biological, and chemical environment. The Germans had developed nerve agents exponentially more deadly than the agents released in WWI. The Italians used mustard gas to defeat the Ethiopian armies in Africa. The Japanese used the full scale capability against the Chinese. Also the new threat of biological warfare had emerged.
The efforts of the Chemical Warfare Service deployed chemical munition stocks and the means to disseminate these stocks throughout the world as US forces moved against the enemy. The Service prepared the force during mobilization in the protection techniques which helped prevent any enemies from using chemical agents. The chemical Warfare Service also developed flame weapons which included flame tanks as well as the more recognized portable flame throwers.
The weapons were often decisive in overcoming enemy strongholds in the Pacific. The Army Air Force delivered Chemical Warfare Service incendiaries over targets in Japan with some raids having destructive effects comparable to that of the atomic bomb used of Hiroshima The Chemical Corps faced the new challenges brought with the American involvement in Vietnam gallantly. The Corps developed and used "people sniffers" to find the enemy in their jungle hideouts. Chemical Corps personnel used thickened flame fuel devices to clear jungle areas of mines and booby traps and to prepare helicopter landing sites.
Herbicides rendered vast areas of jungle useless as cover for the enemy Intervention Overseas Breed Terrorism? Cato dispose d'un budget annuel de 22 millions de dollars environ et d'une centaine de chercheurs maisons President Clinton has also acknowledged that link.
The board, however, has provided no empirical data to support its conclusion. This paper fills that gap by citing many examples of terrorist attacks on the United States in retaliation for U. The numerous incidents cataloged suggest that the United States could reduce the chances of such devastating--and potentially catastrophic--terrorist attacks by adopting a policy of military restraint overseas Crane, the Cato Institute moved to Washington, D. Today , Cato is a multi-million dollar, multi-issue research and advocacy organization with a staff of plus senior managers, policy analysts, and communications specialists.
It is also assisted by the work of over 75 adjunct Cato scholars, including ultra-conservative law professors Richard Epstein University of Chicago and Henry G.
Cato's mission is to "increase the understanding of public policies based on the principles of limited government, free markets, individual liberty, and peace. The Institute will use the most effective means to originate, advocate, promote, and disseminate applicable policy proposals that create free, open, and civil societies in the United States and throughout the world. Following the November elections, the Institute published and delivered to every member of Congress The Cato Handbook, a page, 39 chapter volume containing policy reforms and proposals in every vital public policy area, including budget and tax reduction, social security, Medicare, education, environmental reform, and foreign and defense policy.
One year later, the Institute launched its Project on Social Security Privatization, co-chaired by Jose Pinera, Chile's former minister of labor and welfare, and William Shipman, of State Street Global Advisors, which has been actively promoting private alternatives to social security, both financially and via an extensive public relations campaign Although this effort has often been described as a "war of ideas," it has involved far more than scholarly debate within the halls of academe The base spans an entire bay 1.
The main facilities appear to be located in the eastern part of the bay. Apart from the Xia, the base is also used by Han-Class nuclear attack submarines. The Paper situates the defense posture in the context of China's drive for modernization, emphasizing that as the country is relying mainly on its own efforts, it therefore [emphasis added] poses no threat to anyone. The two pillars are an independent foreign policy and a defensive military one, which will neither be expansionist nor hegemonic.
The strategic assumption is that while the general international environment is stable, there is an increase of uncertainty, and instability. Two tendencies are occurring simultaneously economic globalization and multipolarization, with a changing balance of power, displaying collaboration and competition. While the voice of the developing world is having a greater impact on international relations thereby contributing to a greater democratization, the gap between the North and the South is ever widening.
The role of the military is also playing a greater role in the configuration of national security via the Worldwide Revolution in Military Affairs [RMA] as military establishments strive to shift from mechanization to informalization, which entails new military doctrines in conformity with high-tech weaponry and equipment.
Here to the gap between militaries is growing.
Tibet: A quand l'Indépendance ?
Local wars have emerged as a consequence of the interaction of geopolitical, and ethnic conflicts intermingling with political and economic contradictions. This has made the fight against the root causes of terrorism ever more difficult. There remain uncertain factors in the resolution of the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula, while threats from terrorism, separatism and extremism remain grave, as do smuggling, piracy, drug trafficking and money laundering The biggest immediate threat to Chinese sovereignty, peace and stability remains the Taiwan administration's desire to employ Constitutional reform as a threat to the status quo.
The US is contributing to the destabilization of the region by increasing its qualitative and quantitative arms sales to Taiwan Peter Rodman, assistant defense secretary for international security affairs, told a congressional commission that the response to the emerging military threat from China is part of the White House national security strategy made public yesterday.
Although U. Rodman said during a hearing of the U. China's arms buildup in recent years altered the U. Rodman said. The placement of about Chinese missiles opposite Taiwan has changed the status quo between the non-communist island and the communist mainland, he said Declassification of the document was done by DIA in two phases: the first in a response to a request from the National Security Archive; the second in response to a request from Kristensen.
In the first release see right-hand bar , most of the document was released except DIA's estimate of China's nuclear warhead inventory and two sentences relating to the nuclear capability of Chinese nuclear bombers. In the second release see right-hand bar , however, most of the paragraphs released earlier were reclassified, while the previously withheld estimate and bomber information was declassified. By combining the two releases the original document could be reconstructed in its entirety see right-hand bar. The reconstructed document sheds important new light on the U.
China's status was so appreciated that the U. McVadon U. Navy Retired La nueva Cuba spring "The East Asia security environment in which China is emerging demands that the matter of a maturing Chinese navy be put in a political context. Tension across the Taiwan Strait has recently relaxed. In Taipei, despite profound disagreement with Beijing and a major stir in domestic politics, a cautious posture in relations with Beijing now prevails.
So, remarkably, amid deep, persistent, and mutual distrust, the current prospects for avoiding conflict across the Taiwan Strait are good. Well-informed Chinese officials and prestigious Americans who have had exchanges with senior Chinese leaders confirm the relaxed circumstances and express the conviction that Beijing is confident about the situation as Chinese leaders see it developing and that Taiwan, again content with the status quo, will remain measured in its actions.
War across the Taiwan Strait is not looming. Nevertheless, Beijing is, by modernizing its military, ensuring that things will not go awry in Taiwan, that its policy of intimidation continues to work. In a time of American preoccupation with the global war on terrorism, it is appropriate to draw attention to the crucial features of this modernization of components of the PLA.
If that force were effectively deployed, it would be sufficient in terms of hardware to undertake a two-pronged, PLA Navy—led campaign, with a big maritime component, against Taiwan and U. The United States welcomes the rise of a peaceful and prosperous China.
Estimates place Chinese defense expenditure at two to three times officially disclosed figures. The outside world has little knowledge of Chinese motivations and decision-making or of key capabilities supporting PLA modernization. This lack of transparency prompts others to ask, as Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld did in June Why this growing investment?
Why these continuing large and expanding arms purchases?
