ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a thesis founded on the belief that a proper definition of an armed threat is critical if there is to be to any hope for a successful tactical and strategic response. The actions which are required of any armed group in efforts to mobilize their forces are divided into three categories-getting the people to fight (motivation), means of force (logistics), and ability to exercise direction (command, control, and communication). It concludes that such an analytical framework provides a wholly different perspective for understanding and formulating successful responses to the threats posed by armed groups.
