From the opening statement of Tom Lantos: "Today the subcommittee begins a new series of hearings on the subject of challenges the U.S. security in the 1990's. We have found, much to the surprise and dismay of many of our fellow citizens, that the post-cold war world is neither tranquil nor peaceful nor secure. Nonetheless, I don't think there are any in America or elsewhere who would wish to return to the stability of the cold war. In the changed international conditions, it is essential that we evaluate the challenges to our Nation's security and that we consider the diplomatic and military policies we must adopt in order to meet these challenges. There are a number of elements that we plan to consider during the course of this set of hearings. Among the challenges that we would like to evaluate are the problems of nuclear proliferation, the changed nature of terrorism, the globalization of crime and narcotics, the future international impact of political developments in Russia and the Republics of the former Soviet Union, and the future role of the United States' security alliances with our European and Asian allies." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Zbigniew Brzezinksi, Lawrence Eagleburger, Dante B. Fascell, R. James Woolsey, Leonard S. Spector, Thomas B. Cochran, George Soros, R. Bruce McColm, Patricia Keefer, Doug Bereuter, William Potter, and Tom Lantos.
