Read online Terrorism and U.S. Foreign Policy.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Terrorism and U.S. Foreign Policy The United States government backed by the overwhelming support of the American public takes a hard line against international terrorism The tenets of official U S counterterrorist policy are make no concessions or deals with terrorists bring them to justice for their crimes isolate and apply pressure on states that sponsor terrorism and bolster the counterterrorist capabilities of countries willing to work with the United States While these tenets are sound principles their application specifically overseas raises difficult questions Does the no deal policy actually deter terrorists acts Are there cases where agreements might reduce terrorism while advancing other U S interests Do isolation and pressure really force offending states to alter their support for terrorists What factors affect the willingness not just the capability of foreign governments to help the United States in counterterrorism In this critical study a career CIA officer provides a guide to constructing and executing counterterrorist policy urging that it be formulated as an integral part of broader U S foreign policy In the first four chapters Paul R Pillar identifies the necessary elements of counterterrorist policy he examines why the United States is a prime terrorist target and he reveals why the counterterrorist policies that seem strongest are not always the most effective Chapter examines the widely varying nature of terrorist groups and the policy tools most appropriately applied to them Chapter focuses on states that sponsor terrorism including Iran Libya North Korea and Cuba along with those that enable it to occur particularly Greece and Pakistan Pillar examines ways in which the American public s perspective toward terrorism can actually constrain counterterrorist policy and he concludes that terrorism cannot be defeated only reduced attenuated and to some degree controlled The final chapter summarizes his recommendations for amending U S policy by Paul R. Pillar

No description available, Being insulated by two immense oceans makes it hard for Americans to appreciate the concerns of more exposed countries American democracy s rapid rise also fools many into thinking the same liberal system can flourish anywhere and having populated a vast continent with relative ease impedes Americans understanding of conflicts between different peoples over other lands Paul R Pillar ties the American public s misconceptions about foreign threats and behaviors to the nation s history and geography arguing that American success in international relations is achieved often in spite of rather than because of the public s worldview br br Drawing a fascinating line from colonial events to America s handling of modern international terrorism Pillar shows how presumption and misperception turned Finlandization into a dirty word in American policy circles bolstered the for us or against us attitude that characterized the policies of the George W Bush administration and continue to obscure the reasons behind Iraq s close relationship with Iran Fundamental misunderstandings have created a cycle in which threats are underestimated before an attack occurs and then are overestimated after they happen By exposing this longstanding tradition of misperception Pillar hopes the United States can develop policies that better address international realities rather than biased beliefs, No description available, No description available
