Axis 2001 Redux

In 1999, I posited a future—the Axis 2001 scenario—in which a set of loosely coordinated adversaries sought to exploit America’s misfortune. Although some of the scenario’s events differ from the current setting, the challenge of an economically weakened, overstretched United States now exists, and—much like the scenario—our adversaries seem eager to exploit the opportunities this offers.
      When I first posted the scenario, I asked RTJ readers to suggest strategies to deal with the challenge. I ask again today: How can an economically weakened and arguably overstretched United States best counter multiple adversaries? If you’ve got an idea or strategy, post a comment.
