Sample quote from A Callous Disregard :

"The security barrier issue is all the more upsetting when one considers what other nations have done based upon the Israel model. India has adopted Israel's barrier strategy with great success to cut back on Islamist guerrillas infiltrating into Kashmir and is extending the concept to guard against Islamist incursions from Bangladesh as well. Saudi Arabia is using the Israeli example as a model for its own security fence to cut down on al Qaeda and other Islamist infiltration from Yemen. No criticism has been made of these barriers."

quote from Tehran to the World Trade Center

America has suffered from a malady of guilt and shame since its Vietnam experience. Whether out of some deep-seated distrust over the use of unilateral American power, or remorse over past American actions, or even some innate pessimism that the use of American military power was somehow malevolent, post-Vietnam foreign policy paradigms came to discourage the use of the American armed force to protect American national interests, favoring instead its use purely for humanitarian missions like the interventions in Haiti, Somalia and Bosnia.

As a consequence, in the 25 years that have elapsed since the hostage-taking crisis in Tehran, both Democratic and Republican administrations have chosen to appease a succession of terrorist provocations rather than confront them. Such issues, it was felt, were best adjudicated as a matter of law rather than settled by war. America came to fear what the enemy could do to it, more than what it could do to the enemy. This was especially true in American dealings with the Arab world. While US leaders talked about "never giving in to terrorist blackmail" and "never negotiating with terrorists," they did both in the hope of avoiding further confrontation.
