United States Defence and Security Report 2015

United States Defence and Security Report 2015

BMI View: The United Stated defence military complex is the biggest in the world. United States militaryexpenditure is the highest in the world, driven the by government commitment to various peace keepingmissions and large number of armed force deployments, in addition to a sizeable domestic terrorism threat.

We believe that the United States defence budget will increase and be re- oriented to take account of thethreat posed by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and to address a diverse range of internationalcommitments.

United States faces a complex security scenario: ISIL is posing a major security risk in the Middle East tothe United States and its allies. United States also sees necessary to maintain military presence inAfghanistan until at least December 2015. These two facts also increase the potential of domestic terrorism.
0The need to contain Russia's initiatives in Europe determines its participation in permanent militaryexercises and educational exchanges with Ukraine. Finally, focus remains on the Asia Pacific region and thepivoted stance the US is implementing, trying to balance China's influence, through engaging in countlessmilitary exercises and defence cooperation initiatives with regional players. The mentioned security trendswill drive US Defence expenditure in years to come.
