No Victory, No Peace
Rowman & Littlefield, 2005 - 191 Seiten
What does this so-called Global War on Terrorism really mean to the political elite in the United States? Can the U.S. ever emerge victorious in this unique struggle? Who and what is the enemy and what are they doing that stands in the way of victory in the global war? Has the Bush administration demonstrated a grasp of the principles of warfare? The Bush Administration has not achieved peace because it has not sought victory. This book shows that the biggest mistake in any war is to misidentify which persons are the obstacles to the peace one seeks. Bringing terrorists to 'justice' has no more logical connection with defeating the causes for which they fight than does keeping certain weapons out of the hands of certain states, or even making sure that free elections with female suffrage become universal. No Victory, No Peace applies the classical concepts of warfare to America's current struggles, and shows the (hard) way to win peace. No Victory, No Peace is a collection of essays each written at crucial points in the war on terror and the Iraq war. Meant to be read years after the events they describe, they hold up this war's conduct to timeless standards.
