Commander's intent is to "align USPACOM words, actions, and images in order to convey our intent and resolve to protect U.S. interests and ensure the region remains stable and secure. To this end, we must communicate clearly with key audiences, including allies, partners, and potential adversaries, in order to reduce the possibility of misunderstanding and miscalculation and to facilitate achievement of our ends."
