ABSTRACT

After 9/11 terror, WMD threat has been not any more a threat in war but in peace; the term of Consequence Management (CM) was strongly appeared after 9/11. It has been mentioned on the Disaster Response System related with U.S.’s war on terror, WMD strategy documents, the manual of U.S. DoD, and the operation document of ROK-U.S. CFC. In this circumstance, it has been divided and developed into three domains: Disaster response system, National Strategy, and Military operations. U.S.’s WMD strategy has designed South Korea’s CM to be supported by FCM (Foreign Consequence Management) when a WMD accident occurs in Korea. The problem is that South Korea is not ready enough to accept the system of U.S.’s CM even though South Korea belongs to the zone of high WMD threat. South Korea’s well-build CM capacity, however, is required because it is National strategy and Disaster response assets for deterring North Korea’s WMD use and minimizing WMD damage. For this reason, to understand the system of U.S.’s CM and to accept it to South Korea’s Disaster response system and military operations leads to stronger WMD Disaster response capacity of South Korea. Therefore, the Government and MND should make a system and procedures for the connection between FCM of U.S. and CM of South Korea. To achieve this, implementing ROK-US Combined (civil-government-military) WMD-CM exercise is firstly needed.
