  • Toward a Strategy of Positive Ends

    September 01, 2001

    Authored by Dr. Antulio J. Echevarria, II, Brigadier General (Ret.) Huba Wass de Czege.
    Brigadier General (Retired) Huba Wass de Czege and Lieutenant Colonel Antulio J. Echevarria II make a case for a strategy aimed at achieving positive, rather than neutral or negative, ends. They first discuss the dynamic conditions of the new strategic environment, then explore the options the United States has available for dealing with those conditions. The options include (1) preventive defense, (2) neo-isolationism, and (3) a strategy that pursues positive ends.
