US Army on Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction
The U.S. Army’s future ability to combat weapons of mass destruction (CWMD) in the 2015-2024 timeframe is the subject of a new Army doctrinal publication (pdf).
“The thrust of current Army CWMD capabilities … is to protect against and recover from WMD attacks,” the document explains. However, “The Army is deficient in the capabilities required to proactively detect, identify, track, and engage threat WMD networks before they can launch an attack.” See “The U.S. Army Concept Capability Plan for Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction for the Future Modular Force 2015-2024,” TRADOC Pamphlet 525-7-19, March 25, 2009.
The Army publishes a little-known annual journal called “Combating WMD,” the third issue of which has recently appeared. Each issue includes some noteworthy historical or doctrinal material.
