Resourcing America's Long-Term Security Commitment to the Asia-Pacific

The end of combat operations in Iraq and the drawdown of forces in Afghanistan has refocused U.S. attention on the critically important Asia-Pacific region. The Obama Administration declared its Asia Pivot strategy will augment and strengthen America military forces to address growing Asian security threats. But how much will U.S. forces actually be augmented in Asia? To what degree will massive defense cuts and reductions in the overall U.S. military structure constrain America’s global power projection and force sustainability capabilities?
