Therefore, eliminating individuals only provides temporary and limited solutions to countering IED threats.
It provides military guidance for use by the Armed Forces in preparing their appropriate plans. It outlines responsibilities, provides command and control considerations, discusses organizational options, details the C-IED process and attack the network methodology, and introduces models for coordinating with C-IED supporting organizations.

It provides military guidance for the exercise of authority by combatant commanders and other joint force commanders JFCs and prescribes joint doctrine for operations, education, and training. At the highest echelons, the leadership rarely communicates openly and generally uses trusted aides and couriers to provide broad guidance to subordinates and direct the network.
To avoid detection and attack, adversary networks camouflage and constantly revise, or adapt, their TTP.
While ideology may produce recruits, they have to eat, obtain weapons, travel, and build, transport, and emplace bombs.

It sets forth joint doctrine to govern the activities and performance of the Armed Forces of the United States in joint operations, and provides the doctrinal basis for the planning and conduct of joint C-IED operations.
It is not the intent of this publication to restrict the authority of the JFC from organizing the force and executing the mission in a manner the JFC deems most appropriate to ensure unity of effort in the accomplishment of the overall objective. U This publication provides joint doctrine for planning and executing counter-improvised explosive device C-IED operations.
