A fascinating paper on "Globalization" from the US perspective... will it be "Pax Americana" or a true international cooperative effort. http://web.nps.navy.mil/~relooney/C2Frost.pdf Long, but well worth the read. From it's Conclusions and Recommendations section: "Those invovled in setting US priorities and allocating resources to deal with these challenges of globalization will have to work together far more closely, quickly and flexibly than they have to date. They will need adequate tools and budgets. They need to avoid preaching and practice humility. They will have to develop a thorough understanding of globalization, shared criteria of success, a more considered ranking of the priorities at stake, and a more balanced application of resources, including but not limited to military forces -- in short, a globalization strategy informed by strategic purpose."
