developing joint war-fighting faster than the Pentagon estimates.
Would you agree with that assessment,
or do you have a different view?
Q: The Senate is debating an amendment to the China trade bill
which would punish China for its weapons
proliferation activities. And a number of speakers, both Democrats
and Republicans, have said that China
has not fulfilled its promises to curb its nuclear missile exports.
Does the Pentagon have a view on whether
China has fulfilled its promises? I know that the secretary made an
issue of the cruise missiles with China in
'98, I believe.
Bacon: Well, I would consider, one, China's promise not to export
certain anti-ship cruise missiles to Iran;
that's an example. I would consider China's promise not to sell

- Gulf Cooperation Council Statement*
Following is the text of the joint U.S.-Gulf Cooperation Council
"Members of the Gulf Cooperation Council and the United States met
at the ministerial level in
*New York on September 11,* in conjunction with the 55th session of
the United Nations General Assembly."
This meeting was conducted within the framework of regular senior
consultations about issues of common concern. "The United States
and the members of the Gulf Cooperation Council expressed their
deep concern that Iraq remains
in clear violation of its obligations under United Nations Security
Council resolutions. For both the United
States and the members of the Gulf Cooperation Council, Iraq's
failure to comply with its obligations under
UN Security Council resolutions is totally unacceptable."
On-the-Record Remarks by Spokesman Richard Boucher *September 11,
2000* We were informed this morning that Foreign Minister Paek
would not be able to attend the UN General
Assembly session. We were told that this was for "unavoidable
reasons," but not provided any further details.
However, the North Koreans did assure us that this development
would not have a negative effect on the ongoing
US-North Korean dialogue, and we have no indication from the North
Koreans that Foreign Minister Paek's travel
plans are in any way connected with the events at Frankfurt
Airport. We are currently working through the New York channel to
schedule another round of missile talks with the North
Koreans. The last round took place in Kuala Lumpur on July 10-12,
and we hope the next round will take place soon.

*Russia-Iran Missile Issues* The Russian Ministry of Education has
concluded a special investigation of the Rector of the Baltic
Technical University (BSTU), Yuri Savel'ev, for involvement in the
transfer of sensitive technology to Iran.
The Rector is believed to have violated Russian export controls and
attempted to export goods or services that
could contribute to missiles capable of delivering weapons of mass
destruction (WMD). The investigation revealed
a number of violations of procedures for *
enrolling foreign students* and resulted in administrative action
against the Rector and cancellation of
specialized courses for Iranian students and training of Iranian
specialists at BSTU. The Russian government's decision to take
action against the Rector of BSTU demonstrates Russia's commitment
to stopping the flow of sensitive technologies to Iran and
underscores the importance of continued U.S.-Russian cooperation in
combating the threat posed by Iran's aggressive pursuit of WMD and
their delivery systems.
Deputy Secretary of State *Richard L. Armitage*, accompanied by
Assistant Secretary for European

purpose of his visit is to have consultations

Air Force General Ralph Eberhart, who heads the US Space Command,
Beijing's intentions are unclear, the U.S. military is concerned
about its focus on

But the reliance both on space and on computers to open up new
vistas for battlefield

An Evitable War: Engaged Containment and the US-China Balance
Professional Education: The Key to Transformation
Near-term demands on our limited manpower
necessarily compete with the need to educate our future leaders.
Simply acknowledging the importance of education is not sufficient.
Education must be kept a priority, and it must remain relevant to
our long-term objectives, as spelled out in Joint Vision
• Strategic response times are much
shorter. The availability of news from cable, satellite, the
internet, and other media compresses the time between finding out
about events and the demand to "do something." The requirements for
rapid-response capabilities are clear.
• We can expect more failed states, as
people struggle for independence, for political legitimacy, and for
economic and resource advantages in climates of violence,
repression, and deprivation. We can also expect an increased role
for non-state actors. Deterrence against these threats is
difficult. Our ability to find peaceful alternatives to the use of
force will be severely taxed.
• The availability of technologies to
potential adversaries is expanding, to include missiles and
unmanned aerial vehicles armed with conventional, chemical,
biological, and other weapons. As deterrence and arms control
become more problematic, we need to aggressively explore systems to
defeat these threats.
• The range and types of conflict will
expand. As the diversity of threats increases, so too will the
complexity of military tasks. We can expect asymmetric attacks,
anti-access strategies, and information warfare designed to take
advantage of our perceived weaknesses and to prevent the United
States from deploying forces. Future adversaries may also try to
stay below the threshold of clear aggression, further complicating
appropriate response options. When you combine these factors with
the very real potential for high-intensity regional conflict, or
even direct threats to our homeland, it is reasonable to conclude
that our future joint force commanders will face some enormous
The focus of study and innovation during the interwar period was
influenced primarily by the lessons of World War I, including mass
mobilization for war, the avoidance of trench warfare, and the
integration of emerging technologies such as the airplane and the
tank. Both the War and Navy Departments, aided by the students
and faculties at the War and Naval Colleges, also studied possible
future threats to America's security. They were especially
concerned about Japanese threats to US possessions in the Pacific,
to Southeast Asian natural resources, and to the vital shipping
lanes in the Pacific. Beginning in 1923-24, presaging the
Goldwater-Nichols era of joint emphasis, the Army and Navy War
Colleges assisted the Joint Army-Navy Board during a continuous
series of war games based on War Plan Orange, the contingency plan
for war with Japan.
This led to further study and analysis by the future leaders of
World War II as they contemplated inventive approaches to address
potential threat scenarios. One of the most important examples of
how leader development supports innovation was the Navy's emphasis
on creating an effective aircraft carrier force that would extend
the range and mobility of combat aviation. The Naval War College
played a pivotal role in this effort. Under the prescient
leadership of Rear Admiral William S. Sims, the Naval War College
conducted a series of strategic and tactical war games that
underscored the immense potential of the aircraft carrier.
Simultaneously, these games provided critical leader development
for naval officers in the tactical decisionmaking process.
The Marine Corps, driven by the requirement to provide bases to
support naval movements across the Pacific Ocean, seized upon the
idea of amphibious assault. Students at the Marine Staff College
also played a vital role in the development of this important
doctrine, conceived in the early 1920s by Major Earl Ellis. Despite
its limited size and budget, the Marine Corps was able to
experiment with amphibious operations in the mid-1920s and again
from the late 1930s through the beginning of World War II.
