Current U.S national security strategy and policy
In every nation, national security strategies are formed and published explaining to the citizens and neighboring regions on how best that current government uses its new policies for the benefit of the citizens and the countries welfare. This is no different in the United States as every presidential era had a new strategy and application of policies. They mostly are not far from different, but they have a common goal in maintaining superiority for now and the future. Currently, our President Joe Biden shifted his strategies by appointing national security teams that match with the American population (McMaster, 2015). By doing this involvement of all races bringing a united America as a strategy to win future wars with the citizens, they ensure a sovereignty which will encourage American citizens to participate in the growth of the country. He has also expressed his desire to restore their relationship with American allies in working together by referring to other successful eras where America is strongest when working together.
In the current strategy released by Donald trump in 2017, it was inclusive of maintaining and protecting America’s vital interests. Maintaining the sovereignty and its competitive position universally, America amended suitable actions that purposely supported the national security strategy and objectives (Burrows, 2016). Its global influence ensures a good national security strategy which will be influential in and out of the country. Stability in foreign regions which are critical to America’s development and sustainability are among the major purposes of the current strategy as well as defending the homeland and the free transit of the state to global commons.
The critical foreign regions include Middle East, Europe and the Indo-Pacific. Maintaining a relationship of mutual respect among these parts encourages sustainability and maintenance of the current competitive American position globally. However, homeland security is the most vital strategy of all protecting the USA from external threats and acts of terrorism. Being aware that a threat on the inside is riskier than from the outside, the national security has ensured security at the borders preventing an act like 911 (Ministry of defense, 2018). Missile threats from terrorism funded groups and organization with personal vendetta against the states are a threat to the 50 states thus an improvement in intelligence and other security measures have been assured.
USA involvement with foreign regions has not been utterly successful for resistance and bias reasons still endanger their active involvements. This however does not stop them because a stretch of its involvement is a consideration (Derleth, 2020). This is an indication that in the future America will be globally involved with everything that happens which is a progressive development since the sovereignty in security assures a respect and the want of every country to be involved with the great America.
The future is bright with these strategies being applied but this is just for America and its allies. A number of states will definitely be alienated and coerced into modern slavery by restricting their freedom to access common areas (Wither, 2016). This brings about a monarchy where all transactions will be through the United States like the tea party act in 1773. This however will negatively affect the country for its connections to the foreign countries will be disrupted. By altering the relationships America might start losing allies which is a threat to their security thus the current amendments made by the current presidential in restoring and improving their relations without coercing and retreating them from providing services.
Future wars are more likely to be involved with power in economy, security and international relations. With protests and internal conflicts on the rise, involvement of the American population by appointing leaders from different races might be a solution to increase trust and involvement of foreign regions with the states for future benefits. Violence triggered by internal political conflicts is more likely to erupt in the near future if the American citizens feel unprotected by comparing themselves to other regions through social media and other factors. This might also be caused by involvement of America in creating external enemies that will likely affect regional relations as well as fear of attacks which might lead to a war against America.
