BeschreibungA national security and homeland defense adviser sounds the alarm in this new book, a follow up to his highly touted Unfinished Business: Afghanistan, the Middle East and Beyond--Defusing the Dangers to America's Security. Here Harlan Ullman warns that the United States is fighting a war it does not understand and waging it in the wrong places against the wrong people with flawed objectives. He advises that our country will not be safe until we understand that the threat is not terror but its underlying causes and the political motivations that are using terror as a tactic. Ullman describes terror as a symptom not a cause and argues that unless the causes of terror are rectified or neutralized, waging a war against it will fare not better than wars on drugs, poverty, crime, and other social ills. He defines the danger as a political ideology, clothed in a perverse interpretation of a religion with 1.3 billion followers, that is intent on establishing some form of a fundamentalist state, with or without borders, by relying on Saudi oil money and Pakistani nuclear weapons to sustain and protect it. The United States will prevail, he says, only if it makes fundamental changes in its aims, strategy, and means for waging a fight. As the centerpiece of this book, the author proposes the ten concrete actions to make the United States safer and more secure.
