"Radically new international and domestic conditions require Western Hemisphere security establishments to consider serious adjustments in planning, doctrine, and resource allocation. The interplay between the neo-liberal political-economic model and traditional security needs confronts Latin American defense planners with uncomfortable, major challenges: Today's political and economic climate has created uncertainty within and among the region's tradition-bound military establishments. In an increasingly interdependent world, a state's own territory is no longer the sole reference point for its own security arrangements. Hemispheric security partners, like dancing partners confronting unexpected music with a different rhythm, must confirm shared perceptions and review their complementary roles and agreements before trying out new dance steps."
