We have no greater responsibility than providing the safety and security for our citizens, allies, and partners and develop the economic environment that promotes opportunity and prosperity. The use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) threatens these interests by killing, injuring, and intimidating citizens and political leaders around the world, inflicting damage on security forces on the battlefield, and disrupting transportation and the flow of commerce. The terrorists and criminals responsible for these attacks are resilient, technologically adept and adaptable. They employ the most recent and successful tactics, technique, and procedures gained from experience in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world. The strategic environment, even after the Cold War, is dangerous and ambiguous. Increased instability in the world has resulted in regional conflicts, civil wars, insurgences, terrorist attacks, drug trafficking, and a variety of attempts of intimidation. These challenges arise even during times of relative peace. With this threat, IEDs will reduce the military commander’s combat power, national politics, economic and informational power. Because of this threat, military commanders and leaders responsible for security at all levels must incorporate Counter IED support into their planning process. This will ensure to be able to respond to these worldwide strategic challenges across a full range of operations as part of a joint team.
