After the storm: lessons from the Gulf War
The Gulf War taught us again that our nation can come together for a common cause. Yet the United States has changed as a result of that "defining moment" in the Persian Gulf and the new world order.
What does the future hold for U.S. policy in the Gulf? How was the United States politically, militarily, and economically affected by this first "post-modern" conflict? Distinguished experts, among them Lt. Gen. Bernard E. Trainor, William J. Perry, David Gergen, and Lawrence Korb, address these questions offer policy recommendations, and discuss the Gulf War from a broad perspective in terms of the diplomatic arena, the regional issues, and the economic, political, and strategic lessons that were learned or should have been learned from this conflict.
