If military plans, policies, and programs are to be wisely formulated, an appreciation of the course that world politics will likely follow is first necessary. This paper attempts to predict the international political atmosphere in which U.S. military forces will operate during the next 15 years. In undertaking such a task we hope that an analysis of this nature may prove to be of value to those military officers engaged in making decisions having long-range implications.
