The Long War Ahead and the Short War Upon Us: Imperfect Civilization, Perfect Barbarism and WMD Terror. This book presents a guide to the principles, pratices and priorities vital to achieve victory in 'The Long War Ahead'. Discovery Institute Press.

The short war is a war of prevention against a weapons of mass destruction (WMD) catastrophe. He argues that we have failed to invest enough human and material resources to give ourselves the best chance to prevail. Mr. Wohlstetter analyzed the roots of the wars against terrorism that the United States has been engaged in since September 11, 2001, and discussed numerous topics, including the rise of Islamic communities in the West, the debate over civil liberties versus security, and resource challenges in defending the homeland and fighting overseas. He responded to questions from members of the audience.

The Short War is a war of prevention, attempting to head-off a WMD catastrophe, whose impact could make eventual victory in the Long War seem hollow. We have, Wohlstetter writes, failed to invest enough human and material resources to give ourselves the best chance to prevail. After many years pondering policy at some of our finest think tanks John Wohlstetter has produced a readable, cogent, and informed book on the challenges we face in this new world of rogue states, Islamofascists, and general purpose terrorists motivated merely by dispendious wrath. It is must reading for policy makers and the general public, lest we suffer more and worse 9/11s ahead.

In a new book, The Long War Ahead And The Short War Upon Us, author John C. Wohlstetter outlines a frightening scenario of losing two wars with Islamic extremists and calls for a winner takes all battle against terror and barbarism. Wohlstetter describes a multi-dimensional war that will be almost impossible to win unless American changes its military and foreign policy strategies NOW. Wohlstetter says that American's foreign policy decisions have led to a 'perfect storm' war scenario that could embroil the U.S. in a prolonged war that will threaten the security - and perhaps the survival - of generations to come. The Long War Ahead And The Short War Upon Us is a must-read examination of America's war on terror that for the first time ever explains the battle from two perspectives- a Long War and a Short War. The Long War, refers to the atavistic barbarian adversaries who place no significance on life and use modern technologies in pursuit of their goal of annihilating modern societies. The Short War describes American's race to stop a Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) catastrophe. This book offers America a strategy for winning the war on terror. John Wohlstetter gets it right.

This is an amazing book. Everything the author has predicted a few years ago can be seen clearly now and shows the authors true grasp of our problems with radical Islam. His other book,
"Sleepwalking with the Bomb" is just as insightful on Nuclear proliferation with a full background of how we got to this point and what needs to happen next.

Personally I think this book is good for a modern look as to what is going on with Islam and it's threat to our society. We have such a large misconception about it and while I do not necessarily agree with all of the author's 'predictions' I do think that a stand needs to be made against the modern threat. I heard him on a radio talk show recently and I like what him and the host were talking about; that the Muslims are the one's you see making death threats (if not killing people) and the Muslim extremists are the one's saying it is a religion of peace.
So now you can look forward to everyone else's comments refuting mine. Enjoy... and may Christ bless you!

Not worth the time and money. Mr. Wohlstetter's preface tells all. He's not an historian or political science type, and he thanks a number of neoconservative organizations for their "help" in writing this very short book. As a result, it's a predictable screed that's sort of rambling and disjointed.

It has poorly managed footnotes, no appended list of footnotes, a skinny and general bibliography, and no index of names and events. The conclusion and call to action are frightening, reflecting the failed tactics of the Bush administration and in opposition with the currently succeeding strategy now being applied by General Petraeus and other newly appointed members of the cleanup crew.

As I said, this guy belong to the bunch of people who are trying very hard to get the US to fight Israel's war for them while Israel never lose even 1 soldier. It is the repeat of event just before the Iraq war. They now aim to destroy Iran under false pretexts and want the US to do that job for them. That is why all these propaganda and beating of drums of war. The content of the book basically is:

Those evil Moslims are coming to invade your country, enslave you, rule over you,and convert you.... Bomb them! bomb them! bomb them!.....

That is all there is to it.
If you fooled me once, shame on you. If you fooled me twice shame on me. Do not be taken for a ride by these warmonger profiteers again!
