Abstract : Should the United States military develop a rapidly deployable standing consequence management force capable of responding to both domestic and international crises? The scope of this research project is to examine the current United States government's implementation of a coherent strategy, supported with a viable force, to thwart the political objectives of international terrorists. Specifically, this project dissects America's ability to lessen the impact of terrorist actions through the use of Consequence Management forces.
