Abstract: This paper is an analysis of the Defense Department post Cold War strategy. My paper is concerned with evaluating and defining the four policy measures of maintaining credible forward presence, providing expedient crisis response, reconstitution of the military, and maintaining a base force. I then use the Gulf War as a case study to test if the Department of Defense is achieving its goals. My hypothesis is that given budget cutbacks, using older weapons with new additions is both more cost effective and as efficient as buying all new high tech weaponry, especially if we are to be able to fight in the types of conflicts occurring after the end of the Cold War.
