Full description for Winning the Un-war
According to President Bush, "the American people are safer" as a result of invading Iraq. But al Qaeda remains at large and the White House has conceded that Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with the attacks. This book argues that the war in Iraq is but one misstep in Bush's "global war on terror." Terrorism is simply a tactic, however, not an enemy. Trying to eradicate it is a quixotic quest that does not focus on those responsible for 9/11. Instead, the Americans' security strategy should consist of three central elements: establishing homeland security against further attacks; dismantling the al Qaeda terrorist network; and enacting a foreign policy that does not attract new al Qaeda terrorists. Otherwise, we all run the risk that the war against the terrorist threat (and the radical Islamic ideology it represents) will become a broader war against the Islamic world that could last generations and cost countless lives. This book criticises the war in Iraq as a dangerous distraction, and explains how US foreign policy feeds virulent anti-Americanism - the basis for terrorism! It emphasises the negative consequences of an interventionist U.S. foreign policy which creates new incentives for terrorists worldwide.
