        The U.S. actively participates in the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR), which serves as the global standard for controlling the transfer of equipment, software, and technology that could make a contribution to the development of WMD-capable missile and unmanned aerial vehicle delivery systems.   Feb. 7, The top U.S. general in South Korea warns the world has entered the “second age” of ballistic missile proliferation. “This has made for a much more dangerous world,” said Army Gen.

Desert Storm offers an excellent case study for assessing the various measures and operations which can be employed to protect U.S.. forces against an adversary possessing a WMD capability. Sails billowing from strong economic, technology and military winds, the U.S. ship of state is tacking toward the future, seeking to shape its own strategic environment. Dead ahead in Asian waters, however, are ominous heavy weather and treacherous shoals. The U.S. military and its allies are facing a growing number of hostile rogue states that are equipping themselves with .

      Written in , this study projects the missile-based technology that the United States and its forces were considered likely to face by This study is based on a detailed assessment of facts, observed trends, and the stated/implied objectives of the states most likely to exert a major influence on global security years into the future. This book is a collection of U.S. government documents, primarily from the State Department's "Foreign Relations of the United States," that involve the highest military and civilian leaders discussing the challenge of the Soviet Union's chemical and biological weapons capability and how the United States should deter the potential use of these.
