The National Security Strategy of the United States 2015

The New NSS can be downloaded here: https://db.tt/4PAmJLYH

Strategic Patience and Persistence is the new phrase.  Strategic Patience used to belong only to our policy in Korea but now it seem we are going to apply it globally.

The challenges we face require strategic patience and persistence. They require us to take our responsibilities seriously and make the smart investments in the foundations of our national power. Therefore, I will continue to pursue a comprehensive agenda that draws on all elements of our national strength, that is attuned to the strategic risks and opportunities we face, and that is guided by the principles and priorities set out in this strategy. Moreover, I will continue to insist on budgets that safeguard our strength and work with the Congress to end sequestration, which undercuts our national security.  (page 4)
