    Default I just finished a fantastic book...

    Some of you know Caleb Carr, whose most famous work is his book, 'The Alienist' and its sequel,'The Angel of Darkness.' Carr writes for Military History Quarterly among other journals. He released a book caled 'The Lessons of Terror' a short time after 9/11. His thesis is that terrorism, the deliberate targeting of civilians to further political aims, has always been and always will be a total failure. He backs his thesis up with examples that span the last thousand years and no one is spared...Britain, America, France, Russia, Africa, the Indian populations in the Americas, Japan, Germany...

    It's a small book and about 260 pages. I finished it in about 6 hours. Evenhanded, well-documented, non-partisan, and Carr even includes a radical idea for restoring lots of good feeling toward the U.S.

    Don't read it if you're hoping for some sort of Democrat/Republican endorsements...If you want to piece together a lot of why the world is so jacked up, read this book.

    You should track down anything by Anthony James Joes, he is an expert in counter insurgency.

    You bragging or what?

    Sounds like a hopeful, positive book. I'll look into it.
