"What are those critical military objectives? An analysis of the explicit and implicit 'New World Order' tasks suggests that tomorrow's American military must be able to:  Deter nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) attack from any quarter while simultaneously pursuing a dramatic reduction of global NBC armaments through verifiable non-proliferation and arms control agreements.  Deter conventional attack on the American homeland as well as on those states or regions of vital political and economic significance to us; and, should deterrence fail, defend those same areas through military actions which will result in a termination of conflict on terms favorable to U.S. interests.  Maintain and, if necessary, defend the land, sea, air, and space lines of communication necessary for unimpeded global commerce and the fulfillment of our worldwide security requirements.  Reduce the threat of international terrorism.  Reduce the flow of illicit drugs into the United States.  Maintain a robust, expansible industrial and mobilization base sufficient to support the aforementioned military objectives."
