What are the current missions where the use of preventive force can serve U.S. interests? How might foreseeable changes in the strategic environment increase the imperatives for using force preventively in the future? What do we know about the efficacy and costs of using preventive force against different kinds of adversaries and in different contexts, for example against terrorists , WMD related targets, and potentially for humanitarian missions? Is this likely to change and would these lessons be broadly applicable to other possible applications conceivable in the future?April 14, 2011
