    Globalization has positioned Indonesia in a dilemma. On one hand, globalization has created chances and challenges for Indonesia to develop stronger relationship with the international society. This process stimulates the effort of competition of Indonesia among other nations in life's activities. On the other hand, globalization has also added great pressures and burdens for Indonesia to adapt with the new demands of international society such as human rights problem solving, environment and other problems.

    The whole problem has to be faced and solved by Indonesia. Every failure and inconsideration to responsed and handle this problem pases a serious risk for the existence and totality of Indonesia. The scope and dimension of those problems are quite complex and veried, so they need systematic response and care, and also integral-comprehensive well-planned solutions. One of the efforts to responsed to the changes and solve the problem is studying the national defense problem with its connections intellectually and objectively.

    Recently, Indonesia has faced drastic changes in many fields. New problems have emerged in Indonesia from these changes. Vertical and horizontal conflict in many areas in Indonesia is proof of the dramatic changes. This problem can cause disintegration.

    Therefore the reform spirit has to be obtained and implemented to see, to position and to respond the national defence problems shown in this era of reform and globalization. This national defence program is a response to this urgently needed solution.
