Abstract The recently released Strategic Defense Guidance notes that U.S. forces must be increasingly flexible and adaptable to deal with a dynamic security environment that 'presents an increasingly complex set of challenges and opportunities.'

Nonlethal weapons can play a significant and strategic role in accomplishing this and helping to achieve mission success.
