    Default New US Security Strategy

    Obama has unveiled a document outlining his new security strategy. While clearly taking shots at Bush's previous policy, it seems like it actually expands the idea of "security" to include more things. However it also breaks away from the War on Terrorism, narrowing it to a war with Al Qaeda. Read these articles and tell what you think.

    Document says number of attempted attacks on U.S. is at all-time high - CNN.com

    Basically terrorist attacks are increasing, and growing in diversity. Is moving away from the task of counterterrorism a good strategy?

    This is not a surprise, the US's foreign policy and domestic economic policy only exacerbated the problem.
    However at times I cannot but be remembered to this.
