North America : time for a new focus by Council on Foreign Relations( )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"North America was once called the New World. The people, their ideas, and the resources of the continent shaped the histories of the Old World -- East and West. Today, North America is home to almost five hundred million people living in three vibrant democracies. If the three North American countries deepen their integration and cooperation, they have the potential to again shape world affairs for generations to come ... The people of North America are creating a shared culture. It is not a common culture, because citizens of the United States, Canada, and Mexico are proud of their distinctive identities. Yet when viewed from a global perspective, the similarities in interests and outlooks are pulling North Americans together. The foundation exists for North America to foster a new model of interstate relations among neighbors, both developing and developed democracies. Now is the moment for the United States to break free from old foreign policy biases to recognize that a stronger, more dynamic, resilient continental base will increase U.S. power globally. 'Made in North America' can be the label of the newest growth market. U.S. foreign policy -- whether drawing on hard, soft, or smart power -- needs to start with its own neighborhood"--Executive summary
The U.S. Army/Marine Corps counterinsurgency field manual : U.S. Army field manual no. 3-24 : Marine Corps warfighting publication no. 3-33.5 by United States( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the U.S. military invaded Iraq, it lacked a common understanding of the problems inherent in counterinsurgency campaigns. It had neither studied them, nor developed doctrine and tactics to deal with them. It is fair to say that in 2003, most Army officers knew more about the U.S. Civil War than about counterinsurgency. This volume was written to fill that void. The result of unprecedented collaboration among top U.S. military experts, scholars, and practitioners in the field, the manual espouses an approach to combat that emphasizes constant adaptation and learning, the importance of decentralized decision making, the need to understand local politics and customs, and the key role of intelligence in winning the support of the population. The manual also emphasizes the paradoxical and often counterintuitive nature of counterinsurgency operations: sometimes the more you protect your forces, the less secure you are; sometimes the more force you use, the less effective it is; sometimes doing nothing is the best reaction. A new introduction by Sarah Sewall, director of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, places the manual in critical and historical perspective, explaining the significance and potential impact of this revolutionary challenge to conventional U.S. military doctrine. An attempt by our military to redefine itself in the aftermath of 9/11 and the new world of international terrorism, "The U.S. Army/Marine Corps Counterinsurgency Field Manual" will play a vital role in American military campaigns for years to come

Spycraft secrets : an espionage A-Z by Nigel West( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tradecraft is the term applied to the techniques used by intelligence personnel to assist them in conducting their operations and, like many other professions, the espionage business has developed its own rich lexicon. In the real, sub-rosa world of intelligence-gathering, each bit of jargon acts as a veil of secrecy over particular types of activity, and in this book ... West explains and give[s] examples of the lingo in action"--Page 4 of cover

Report to Congress on the situation in Iraq by David Howell Petraeus( )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the testimony of General David H. Petraeus, Commander of the Multi-National Force-Iraq, to Congress on 10-11 September 2007. General Petraeus begins by stating that the military objectives of the surge are, in large measure, being met. In recent months Coalition and Iraqi Security Forces have achieved progress in the security arena. Though the improvements have been uneven across Iraq, the overall number of security incidents has declined in 8 of the past 12 weeks, with the number of incidents in the last two weeks at the lowest level seen since June 2006. One reason for the decline in incidents is that Coalition and Iraqi forces have dealt significant blows to Al Qaeda-Iraq by taking away a number of their sanctuaries and gaining the initiative in many areas. They also have disrupted Shia militia extremists, capturing the head and numerous other leaders of the Iranian-supported Special Groups. Coalition and Iraqi operations also have helped reduce ethno-sectarian violence, bringing down the number of ethno-sectarian deaths substantially in Baghdad and across Iraq since December 2006. The number of overall civilian deaths also has declined during this period, and Iraqi Security Forces have continued to grow and to shoulder more of the load, albeit slowly and amid continuing concerns about the sectarian tendencies of some elements in their ranks. In what may be the most significant development of the past 8 months, the tribal rejection of Al Qaeda that started in Anbar Province and helped produce such significant change there has now spread to a number of other locations as well. In this security assessment, General Petraeus reviews the nature of the conflict in Iraq, recalls the situation before the surge, describes the current situation, and explains the recommendations that he has provided to his chain of command for the way ahead in Iraq. Fourteen briefing charts accompany the testimony

Social science goes to war : the Human Terrain System in Iraq and Afghanistan by Montgomery McFate( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Human Terrain System (HTS) was catapulted into existence in 2006 by the US military's urgent need for knowledge of the human dimension of the battlespace in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The new netwar : countering extremism online by Martyn Frampton( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Policy Exchange's new report provides a comprehensive analysis of the struggle against online jihadist extremism - what we call "the new Netwar". This issue is vital to UK national security and there is a danger that the blood and treasure we are investing in defeating ISIS in Iraq and Syria will produce little more than a pyrrhic victory unless we act to defeat the virtual threat. At present, we are certainly not winning the war online. The spate of terrorist attacks the UK suffered in the first half of 2017 confirmed that online extremism is a real and present danger. In each case, online radicalisation played some part in driving the perpetrators to violence. As a society, we are struggling to grasp the extent of the challenge and also appropriate ways of responding. It is clear that the status quo is not working. It is time for a new approach. Policy Exchange has worked with a team of experts to provide fresh insight into the debate around online extremism. In this report we explore a range of policy options for interdicting the supply-chain of extremist content - at both ends
Getting the big ideas right : the strategic concepts that helped achieve substantial progress in Iraq by David Howell Petraeus( Book )

U.S., coalition, and Iraqi forces have made substantial and durable progress in providing security and stability for the Iraqi people; but security alone is an insufficient foundation for maintaining the hard-fought successes achieved to date, and any assessment should be tempered by an understanding of the numerous economic, diplomatic, political, informational, rule of law, and capacity-building challenges the Iraqis must still address
