America's Strategic Posture was compiled by a twelve-member commission assembled by the . Congress to draft a "bipartisan, independent, forward-looking assessment" of the United States' global strategic position (p. vii).

Reaching agreement on the strategic posture of the United States is no easy task. It will now fall to the President, Congress, and the American people to demonstrate the wisdom and judgment to carry out the recom-mendations and ideas expressed in this report. I have no doubt they will meet the challenge.

But throughout the delibera-tions of the commission, all of our members sought to strike a balance that supports to reasonable levels both of these security needs.

Meanwhile, the United States and Russia continue to deploy thousands of nuclear weapons on ballistic missiles that can hit their targets in less than 30 minutes, encouraging both sides to continue a prompt launch capability that carries with it an increasingly unacceptable risk of an accidental, mistaken or unauthorized launch. With these growing dangers in mind, former . Secretaries of State George Shultz and Henry Kissinger, Commission Chairman Bill Perry and I published an op-ed in January 2007, and a follow-up piece in 2008, in The Wall Street Journal that called for a different direction for our global nuclear policy with both vision and steps.
