CHAPTER 5

ANALYSIS

Introduction

This chapter attempts to tally information presented about the WMD threat,

current capabilities to counter it, and the recommended future requirements to keep the

US in front of it. Chapters two and three summarized literature and capabilities in each

of these areas. Only now can a degree of analysis be done. This chapter draws eight

conclusions using a cumulative assessment of the information contained in the previous

chapters. In doing so, it explains each conclusion and summarizes the evidence

contributing to that conclusion. As with any conclusion, they may be subject to a degree

of discussion and disagreement. However, the conclusions set forth in this chapter are

based on the cumulative result of comprehensive research of credible national security

leader’s statements and related publications. A summary of some of this evidence is

therefore provided. In the end, this chapter answers the research question and the related

subordinate questions.

Conclusion One

Many senior government leaders and prominent defense experts see WMD and

other asymmetric threats as one of the most critical challenges to national security today

and in the foreseeable future.
