|On another board on which I post on I found this Article. It is about one of the men who may have been instrumental in the formation of a Grand Strategy to fight this war (War On Terror) in the ME and elsewhere. When thinking about this war I think in terms of the Cold War, which included Korea, Vietnam etc. Conflicts fought to assure Containment. There were many players in the Containment Strategy, there seemed to be many moves and strategies within the larger Strategy. When posting about individual events in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Iraq do you try to connect them to this Strategy? Do you think an outline for the War on Terror may have come from the Containment Strategy of the Cold War?
Would you think a law enforcement slant would work or would it be to reactive, not proactive enough and cause terrible harm to the US?
Please read this article, it may be a missing link it was for me.
