The 2006 Quadrennial Defense Review

The first paragraphs of the QDR:
The United States is a nation engaged in what will be a long war.

Since the attacks of September 11, 2001, our Nation has fought a global war against violent extremists who use terrorism as their weapon of choice, and who seek to destroy our free way of life. Our enemies seek weapons of mass destruction and, if they are successful, will likely attempt to use them in their conflict with free people everywhere. Currently, the struggle is centered in Iraq and Afghanistan, but we will need to be prepared and arranged to successfully defend our Nation and its interests around the globe for years to come. This 2006 Quadrennial Defense Review is submitted in the fifth year of this long war.
This is an important document. Look over it, and don't let the MSM summarize it for you. We live in an age where documents like this are readily available to us all. Take advantage of that access.

And, from an August 2005 report, something the QDR does not address well, China's push in to space.
