|Opis:||Conventional military threats to the world are being increasingly replaced by
modern security threats. Their main features are the asymmetry of activity,
complexity, transnationality, diversity and non-predictable structures, an increasing
level of organization of dangerous groups and their skill in the use of modern
communications. Some of these threats, such as CBRN/E terrorism may shake the
foundations of global stability (Rode, 2007, p. 5). The professional public is likely to
agree that we perceive terrorism as one of the greatest threats to the current
States which must ensure the safety of their citizens resort to, among other things,
military intelligence activities to obtain intelligence information. States, as one of
the principle actors trying to ensure the security of citizens, are looking for
appropriate responses to threats, both in collaboration and networking with other
countries and international bodies, as well as in the modified mode of operation
within the country. States which must ensure the safety of their citizens resort to,
among other things, military intelligence activities to obtain intelligence
As a result a number of Intelligence Functional Disciplines - Subject Areas (Joint
intelligence doctrine, 2003), have been developed within the overall (military)
intelligence. which cover many aspects of intelligence production and often require
specialist analytical expertise.
The authors used the case of medical field (medical intelligence - MEDINT) to show
the importance of national support (REACH BACK) to military intelligence, since this
is the most rational way possible to ensure both specific and expert knowledge,
which usually lacks in the military intelligence.
This thesis is based on the assumption that the existing Military Intelligence (MI)
model does not follow the requirements of the modern security environment in
terms of threats and security. The model does not allow adequate response to
security threats. Therefore, we claim that medical intelligence elements should be
included in the MI through the national support (REACH BACK), thus providing the
most rational way to ensure the highest possible level of security.
In the study of the role of military intelligence in the fight against terrorism, the
authors used their own definition of terrorism, whereby terrorism is associated with
the method and objectives of terrorist activity (the victims).
CBRN / E terrorism is in terms of its its causes, types and characteristics no
different from terrorism, which is included in the general definition of terrorism.
The difference lies in the means used in the attack, that is CBRN / E agents.
Combating weapons of mass destruction, should in our view be referred to as active
defense against weapons of mass destruction, especially because an CBRN / E
terrorist attack should not be allowed to happen given the consequences of such an
