Adical Islamic states and groups Simply amazing Krepinevich indeed Squash Basics - How To Play Squash has a skill And as usual the blame is never with the US it s always with radical Islamists When the US invaded Afghanistan it was their fault for not accepting the barbaric invasion with open arms When the US invaded Ira it was radical Islamist who were the problem as well Apparently Krepinevich believes that self defense is an abhorrent act and only the most radical of people would resort to such a despicable inhumane revolting offenseKrepinevich tries as much as possible to mention the word Islam and link it with a negative notion even as you can seeere in totally irrelevant chapters His mission seems to be inculcating the notion of Islam Bad AmericaIsrael Good The author subscribes to the long cherished principle in elementary school 1st grade classes all over the world that repeating something many times will refute any and all opposing factsChapter 6 is about an attack meant to weaken the global economy and thus beget intended chaos Who perpetrates the attack Well Muslims of course who elseChapter 7 is about Ira descending into anarchy thanks to Muslim states and groupsEven the one fairly interesting part of the book is ruined by Krepinevich s incompetence Since the scenarios are fictional many of the notes are fictional as well For instance any given page could contain a note in which there s a reference to a book or interview published in say 2014 with fictitious names and uotes as well That could ve been fun if only Krepinevich didn t mix real facts with fiction Half the notes are fiction the other What Is a Googly?: The Mysteries of Cricket Explained half real well at least subject tois definition of the word This means you ave to check the year in every single note to know if the wittycontroversial uote you just read is real or made up This gets tiresome pretty uickly and you lose interest in the notes altogetherConclusion an interesting premise ruined by a weak approach and stunning venomous atred The whole book is nothing than an exercise in intellectual malevolence conceptualized around one essential idea using fiction as a means to advance Islamophobia A similar and free experience is to read any war mongering right wing propaganda website basically the same 4 primary tenets will be there as well 竹光始末 The Bamboo Sword And Other Samurai Tales hate misinformationyperbole and self righteous nationalism And if you don t want that effort I ll summarize the book for you in two sentences1 Muslims are immoral subhumans who do nothing but evil worst of all when they fight for their freedom2 America and Israel are moral superhumans who do nothing but good best of all when they commit war crimes in illegitimate warsThere

Scenarios are basically The Confusion: Books Four & Five of The Baroque Cycle hypothetical problems that are within the span of possibility in the real world which planners use to practice crafting policies and responses They might fall out of the blue but even an unexpectedypothetical will jar the reader into thinking about solutions from different angles perhaps outside the boundaries of conventional expectations Each scenario is a tidy nightmare rogue nukes being set off in the USA a new global pandemic Pakistan collapses China implodes In each instance the US Mismatch has a direct or indirect interest that is being challenged But due to limited American power lack of information or the unpredictability of bold action policy makers and presidents can find themselves shackled and gagged making weak responses to strong challenges This does not mean the USA is doomed to be a pitiful giant to uote Nixon But it does meanaving an approach to crisis that can emerge from practiceHere the book calls for a solution that no longer exists Krepenevich advocates Joint Forces Command to be the champion of contingency planning gaming and scenario development But this command was just axed in a round of Pentagon budget cutting after Krepenvich s book made it to print What branch of the Pentagon steps forward to develop this mission remains to be seen 7 Deadly Scenarios is a very uick read but don t let the book s brevity deceive you Crisis management is the acid test of every presidency The nightmares of Krepenevich s strategic imagination could come to pass let s Going All the Way Planning for a Marriage That Goes the Distance hope they don t But they are food for the reader s thought and a good challenge to conventional expectations The scenarios the author presents are very plausible They re grounded in projections of present reality take place in the near future and are carefully thought out Anyone interested in military science geopolitics or near future economics should read this Iope the leaders of the world are thinking about possibilities like these so that they won t be caught unprepared if they start to Test logiciel en pratique happen Up front I ll say that I didn t much enjoy this book and I wish Iadn t paid for itThe author s premise is that accurately predicting the future is ard and because military planning lead time measures in years if we the future is ard and because military planning lead time measures in years if we bad guesses now about future risks we ll A Queen's Spy Plus The Tudor Heresy - Mercenary For Hire Series: Tudor Historical Fiction Novels - Adventure Fiction (Tudor Mystery Trials) have the wrong tools and the wrong training in place to deal with things when theyappen He proposes the use of scenarios to prompt military planners to consider ow things might develop and what responses they might reuire He then describes several possible future scenarios in which international crises threaten the USOne problem I see immediately is that all of is scenarios are themselves dependent on a fair amount of prediction one scenario predicts a slowdown in the Chinese economy due to current demographic and environmental trends which in turn leads to conflict over Taiwan But this all assumes you re correctly anticipating ow those trends will play out and ow other parties will act as they do Is the scenario then anything other than one guess at Confederate Waterloo how the future might play outBruce Schneier used to run a contest onis blog where Beyond Words: Daily Readings in the ABC's of Faith (Buechner, Frederick) he challenged readers to come up with the most plausible movie plot security threat something that could potentially threaten the US but that s so implausible that it would onlyappen in a movie His point was that there are any number of plots or scenarios which might pose threats but since we can t possibly plan to prevent all of them dwelling too much on any one of them is pointless It would be productive to invest in things that are broadly useful rather than things which would only avert a single specific threatOne scenario in this book deals with a deadly pandemic flu outbreak which topples the Mexican government and sends millions of panicked potentially infected refugees swarming toward the US s southern border The author bemoans the fact that neither Democrats nor Republicans ever secured the border Democrats because they wanted to offer amnesty to illegal immigrants in exchange for their votes why this particular bit of electoral chicanery is a uniuely Democratic phenomenon is not discussed and Republicans because they wanted a source of cheap labor The author also points out there aren t nearly enough Border PatrolNational Guard forces to stop a mass migration and without sufficient supplies of non migration and without sufficient supplies of non armaments their only option would be the use of deadly force against unarmed refugeesWhat the author doesn t point out is that any definition of securing the border which would alt an army of millions of desperate refugees would reuire an absolutely massive expenditure physical barriers surveillance options an army of Border Patrol agents While that might be a worthwhile investment when national survival is at stake it would be an insane waste of resources when a much smaller level of security is adeuate to control istorical levels of migration and drug trafficking In short if you buy into the movie plot threat a massive response is warranted if you don t it s not Relatively little is said in the text about the fact that spending on public ealth infrastructure disease surveillance and rapid vaccine manufacturing capacity would elp reduce the risk of refugees carrying the plague into the US presumably because none of those things go pew pew and are sold by RaytheonIn short if you want to read a couple of Das Glücksbüro hundred pages about a crisis probably caused by Muslims 6 of the 7 scenarios involve Muslims wanting to kill Americans against which the might of the American military is powerless then this might be the book for you but you d probably be better off getting the new Vince Flynn novel At leaste doesn t pretend to be bound by reality I read this years ago back when I was in college and I m afraid it wasn t as good as I remembered The scenarios are thought provoking to be sure but the fictional citations end up distracting from the text as a whole because it isn t always completely clear if they re fictional or no. The conseuences of a timed withdrawal from Ira to the likelihood of a China on the march Krepinevich reveals the forces both overt and covert that are in play; the ambitions of world powers terrorist groups and rogue states; and the actions and counteractions both our enemies and our allies can be expected to takeAs riveting as a thriller 7 Deadly Scenarios takes you inside the corridors of power peers into the world of defense planning and explores US military and political strategy in the past present and likely future The result is a must read book that will trigger discussion thought and Bodies in the Bog and the Archaeological Imagination hopefully actio.

tome 01 : Une jolie surprise (01) hatred thate threw away that microscopic semblance of objectivity that Before We Were Yours he didn tave and wrote an outlandish Queer, There, and Everywhere: 23 People Who Changed the World hilarious scenario in which the big scary monster radical Islamists seize power in Pakistan Whatappens next Well they want to blow everything up of course You know those Muslims they re terrorists by nature right Right therefore Krepinevich should not be ridiculed for writing that Pakistan would then become a sanctuary and breeding ground for Jihadists who would go abroad attempting to subvert other Muslims states and attack non Muslims No this isn t Pat Robertson who s writing this Not Daniel Pipes or Geert Wilders And even though it very much resembles something some flag waving backwoods teen might anonymously write on a white supremacist website it s actually a serious statement by a distinguished The Texan his word back jacket visiting professor at a university Ironically it s the US who s been subverting governments around the world for well overalf a century now with covert operations and overt invasions being sanctioned and sold to the people by the likes of Krepinevich dedicated government propagandists and The Indoor Pirates hypocrites of the first orderChapter 2 War Comes to America This scenario is about terrorists detonating several nuclear bombs inside the US The terrorists are naturally Muslims Krepinevich endorses torture in this chapter claiming that it s a successful way to extract information despite virtually all the evidence from real life opposing it completely The author does a good job of maskingis racism but as seen in the last chapter Fisher Investments on Industrials he s onlyuman so Timelines of American Literature he slips on occasion In this scenario after a few bombs causeeavy casualties Krepinevich writes one US tabloid Weggesperrt headline sums the thoughts of many Rag Heads 60000 US 0 page 86 Noticeis endorsement in the thoughts of many The author makes the claim in page 88 that Muslims started the war against the US when Iranians Het Achterhuis held Americanostages at the onset of the revolution Ironically it was the US who overthrew Mohammad Mosaddegh in 1953 Iran s democratically elected president in favor of the Shah who oppressed the Iranians so much that they backed Khomeini s revolution Krepinevich also conveniently ignores the fact that after years of Haganah terrorism and war crimes against Muslims the US ad no problem recognizing Israel 10 minutes
