    Subject Headings:
    • United States -- Foreign relations -- 2001-
    • United States -- Military policy.
    • International relations.
    Abstract:
      Proponents need to apply some tough love to multilateralism to develop policies for when, why, who decides, and how to use military force. Otherwise, it will remain weak analytically, vulnerable politically, and unable to gain the mantle of leadership of U.S. foreign policy.
    Metz, Steven, 1956-

    • United States -- Foreign relations -- 2001-
    • Iraq -- Foreign relations -- 1991-
    Abstract:
      The United States faces an intractable dilemma in Iraq: insurgency if it stays or instability if it leaves. The sooner that a comprehensive counterinsurgency strategy, based on these six principles, can be implemented, the better the chances to forestall the threat.
    Dory, Amanda J.

    • Civil defense -- United States.
    • Terrorism -- United States -- Prevention.
    • National security -- United States.
    Abstract:
      Decisionmakers tend to view Americans not as partners in dealing with terrorism but as either potential attack victims or panicked masses. It is time to create a comprehensive civil security plan that will better prepare the U.S. population to survive and cope with future attacks.

    Sutter, Robert G.

    Lincoln, Edward J.

    • Japan -- Foreign relations -- 1989-

    • Europe -- Foreign relations -- 1989-
    Abstract:
      Europe's deep involvement with the Middle East will grow and become increasingly political. It is therefore essential that the Europeans resolve their own regional policy disputes, on four issues in particular, and work with the United States on at least three key problems.

    • Europe -- Foreign relations -- 1989-
    • Middle East -- Foreign relations -- Europe.
    Abstract:
      The United States and Europe are not bound to cooperate in the Middle East, but they are also not fated to conflict. Rather, cooperation must be actively cultivated to forge common strategic approaches, such as these, that can no longer be taken for granted.

    • United States -- Economic conditions -- 2001-
