Personal Author P. R. Cuccia
Abstract In January of 2012, the president of the United States endorsed the Department of Defense directive Sustaining U.S. Global Leadership as well as the strategic shift in focus toward the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East. The Secretary of Defense made clear that the U.S. will have global presence emphasizing the Asia-Pacific and the Middle East while still ensuring our ability to maintain our defense commitments to Europe This paper examines the effect of the U.S. policy shift toward Asia on the U.S. policy in Europe. It examines the current U.S. policy in Europe along with the current European military budgets, and U.S. resources in Europe. It discusses the projected effect of removing these U.S. resources from Europe and addresses economic and diplomatic trends. It concludes by agreeing with some European studies that Europe needs to contribute more to Europe s defense and it gives recommendations for future U.S. policy in Europe.
