The use of chemical and biological weapons on the battlefields of history is not a new phenomenon. Although this practice is contrary to international treaties and customs, it has not precluded the use of these weapons by state and non-state actors against military, political, or civilian targets. Chemical and biological weapons use during the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s and the use of chemical weapons in Syria in 2013 demonstrate that our collective security is threatened by actors willing to defy the international community. The threat of chemical and biological weapons use is increased as these are relatively inexpensive to produce and can be delivered by a variety of methods, making them an asymmetric threat of catastrophic potential. The psychological, health, and logistical implications of displaced persons fleeing a real or perceived chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and enhanced conventional weapons (CBRNE) environment will create complex mission command and support requirements requiring innovative and agile responses.
Responding to a crisis of the magnitude associated with the purposeful introduction of CBRNE casualties into a displaced person, refugee, and evacuee (DPRE) environment would almost certainly require military forces — particularly U.S. military forces — with the skills necessary to rapidly deploy for consequence management, and operate in what promises to be a very complex and chaotic environment. The ability to provide streamlined and integrated CBRNE and medical capabilities will be essential. Military forces will need to create the space necessary for aid agencies to operate and provide a synchronized interagency and intergovernmental response. Time between detection, analysis, understanding, and deployment could be very short and predeployment training and planning timelines will be limited.
