The threat posed by international terrorism and organized crime ITOC is too great and too complex for civilian institutions to confront by themselves. The military could and should assist in internal protection missions if its operational role is carefully limited by a legal democratic regime. Todays security requirements call for a coordinated and cooperative application not only of all national civilian and military resources but also those of a variety of international and functional organizations. Because success against ITOC requires close unilateral and multilateral coordination, the responsibility should devolve to the OAS.
