“We must remain strong and vigilant against the kinds of threats we have seen already throughout the 20th century — regional aggression and competition,bloody civil wars, efforts to overthrow democracies. But also, our security is challenged increasingly by non-traditional threats, from adversaries both old and new — not only hostile regimes, but also terrorists and international criminals,who cannot defeat us in traditional theaters of battle, but search instead for new ways to attack, by exploiting new technologies and the world’s increasing openness....We must approach these new 21st century threats with the same rigor and determination we applied to the toughest security challenges of this century.” 
—President ClintonCommencement Address at the U.S. Naval Academy May 22, 1998
