ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the large numbers of U.S. military troops that have been deployed as a part of the War on Terror. He suggests that U.S. military policy makers view the current level of deployment as an aberration because the military system they are involved in is not designed to support such a high deployment level for long periods of time. He argues that two decades after the fall of the Soviet Union it is time for the U.S. to adjust its military for the post-Cold War world.
