Global Integration: What is it?

“The Joint Chiefs of Staff, in view of their global responsibilities and their perspective with respect to the worldwide strategic situation, are in a better position than any single theater commander to assess the risk of general war. Moreover, the Joint Chiefs of Staff are best able to judge our own military resources with which to meet that risk.”

-Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Omar N. Bradley in 1951 to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee
