America has been at war for years, but until now, it has not been clear with whom or precisely for what. And we have not been using the full resources we need to win.
With the publication of War Footing, lead-authored by Frank Gaffney, it not only becomes clear who the enemy is and how high the stakes are, but also exactly how we can prevail.
War Footing shows that we are engaged in nothing less than a War for the Free World. This is a fight to the death with Islamofascists, Muslim extremists driven by a totalitarian political ideology that, like Nazism or Communism before it, is determined to destroy freedom and the people who love it.
Mr. Gaffney and his esteemed colleagues offer ten specific steps that Americans, as individuals and as communities, can take to ensure their way of life and safety and the future well-being of their children and grandchildren. These steps include detailed recommendations about how to:
? Know the enemy
? Really support U.S. troops
? Provide for the country's energy security
? Stop investing in terror
? Equip the country for war at home
? Counter the mega-threat: an EMP attack
? Secure U.S. borders and the interior against illegal immigration
? Wage political warfare
? Launch regional initiatives
? Wield effective diplomacy
This book is a highly readable and definitive owners manual for the War for the Free World. Whether we like it or not, every American owns a stake in its outcome. War Footing tells us how we can make sure it comes out right.
Frank J. Gaffney founded the Washington-based Center for Security Policy in 1988 after holding senior positions in the Reagan Defense Department and on the staffs of leading Democratic and Republican senators. He and his colleagues at the Center are widely reocgnized as articulate sources for timely analysis of current defense and foreign policy developments.
