An explosive waste incinerator (EWI) can be installed in the existing Badger AAP Contaminated Waste Processor (CWP). An engineering evaluation of installing a rotary kiln furnace to dispose of waste energetic material has shown the installation to be possible. An extensive literature search was completed to develop the known proven methods of energetic waste disposal. Open burning/open detonation was not an option. Current incineration practice including thermal treatment alternatives was...

February 17, 1989, witnessed the signing of the Arab Maghreb Union. This union has been a dream of many generations of the peoples of North Africa. This is natural, since history and the shared geographical location have shaped this region into a distinct entity. It is necessary because only united can the Maghreb region better defend its interest, and increase its bargaining power in dealing with other trading blocks. The changing global world order and the emergence of many regional blocks...

United States policy towards Morocco and the conflict in the Western Sahara reflects the continuing basic geostrategic concerns and the present domestic political conditions in Morocco that have combined to constrain United States policy options. The purpose, therefore, is to focus on (1) the framing of the Western Saharan conflict and (2) the alleged disparity between tradition and geostrategic concerns; specific attention will be given to the period 1980-1987. An appraisal of United States...

A 300-r irradiation of the corneal epithelium of the rat resulted in a steady decrease in mitoses. Sixty minutes after irradiation the cells which were dividing at the time of exposure were characterized by chromosome stickiness resulting in bridges at anaphase and telophase. A structural effect which was observed in the dividing cells 24 hr after irradiation was characterized by chromosome fragments and bridges in the anaphase and telophase. The effect was produced in young and adult rats...

This study explores the personal leadership of Jawaharlal Nehru of India and Ramon Magsaysay of the Philippines with a view toward determining the impact their leadership had on the security of the United States. Although the situation existing in India and in the Philippines was markedly different in many respects, there were striking similarities: both gained independence from a colonial power, both had large dissident elements, in both countries economic conditions were chaotic, and both...

For years, American diplomats have been trained to not discuss religion and have often excluded religious leaders from diplomacy. The United States military, to a lesser extent, has also tended to evade religion in conducting military operations and negotiations. Religious issues have been viewed as extremely volatile and therefore something to avoid. The tendency in Western culture to make religion private and individual is in sharp contrast with much of the world which views religion as...

US-Moroccan relations date from the American Independence in 1776. Following that time Moroccan leadership has been continuously seeking to develop those relations to a higher degree so that both nations may benefit. US interests in other areas of the world have overshadowed those of Morocco. Despite efforts by the Kingdom's leadership to pull itself out of that shadow and to gain the status this writer feels it deserves, those efforts have been in vain. This unfortunate outcome finds Morocco a...

The U.S. security environment has changed dramatically and institutions that defend the continent against common threats must adapt to remain viable. Otherwise, the safety, security, and economic prosperity of North America will be in jeopardy. The World Trade Center attack demonstrated that asymmetric threats can approach the United States from any direction. This attack also reinforced the fact that natural and technological disasters can have international consequences and continental...

Following the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution, the American government refused to grant de jure recognition to the Soviet regime. American courts likewise refuse to acknowledge the legal existence of the Soviet Union in matters concerning Russian property in the United States. In the 1933 Litvinov Assignment, when President Roosevelt granted conditional recognition to Moscow, the Soviets assigned its rights to Russian property in the U.S. to the American government. The assignment, however, proved to...

The United States government views Morocco as a moderate Arab regime, an ally against terrorism, and a free trade partner. King Mohammed VI retains supreme power but has taken incremental liberalizing steps. Since 9/11, Moroccan expatriates have been implicated in international terrorism, and Morocco has suffered terrorist attacks. Morocco takes a proactive approach to countering terrorism, but some of its measures may be setting back progress in human rights. Morocco's foreign policy focuses...

The purpose of this paper is to present an integrated picture of the Arab minority's total adjustment--social, cultural, psychological, economical, and even biological--to life in Israel. We will approach culture change not from the culturologist's viewpoint as new culture traits, themes, complexes, etc., invading new geographical areas or new people. We will rather look at it from the oppostie end--organisms, that happened to be of the human species, finding themselves in a changing...

Hurricane Katrina response operations revealed that command, control, coordination, and cooperation (C4) between Title 10 and Title 32 forces needed improvement. The lack of effective C4 between Title 10 and Title 32 resulted in duplicate effort and less than optimal use of critical resources. Through the use of the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC), more than 456,000 National Guard soldiers, airmen, and their equipment from all states are available to support emergency operations....
