Heritage Event: Deployment of U.S. Forces in Europe
Recorded on April 2, 2003
The Heritage Foundation's Van Andel Center
Since the end of the Cold War almost thirteen years ago, the
zones of instability have shifted eastward to Asia and the Middle
East, where hotbeds of terrorist activity and fanaticism are
emerging. Yet the United States continues to rely on a European
basing structure designed to confront the old Soviet threat. The
United States still maintains the bulk of its European troop
presence in Germany even though countries in Eastern and Southern
Europe may be more appropriate to the modern security environment.
Join us on April 2, 2003 for a half-day conference that will
discuss the political and strategic considerations of changing
America's European base structure.
