Abstract:

This study answers the following question Would American warfighting capabilities be enhanced by creating standing joint task forces for all but the most unlikely contingencies In answering the foregoing question, the monograph first part examines the new United States US military strategy. The second portion reviews current procedures for allocating forces for contingency operations. The third section outlines a concept for creating standing joint task forces. The next presents a comparative analysis whose purpose is to develop a basis for determining whether current force allocation procedures or standing joint task forces better serve Americas future warfighting needs. For the comparative analysis, doctrine, command and control, interoperability, and teamwork serve as analytic criteria. The monographs final section includes appropriate conclusions and recommendations.
