Abstract:

The US Unified Commanders faces growing potential threats from state actors, their proxies, or independent extremists and terrorists. While various analysts have tended to exaggerate the immediate threat, or the current threat posted by given actors, this does not mean that the threat is not real or that the nation does not need to improve its defense and response capabilities. The US Unified Commands must plan to defend and respond against threats in their respective areas of responsibilities in order to protest American citizens, forces, assets and our allies.
