Strategic Policy and Plans
Question one: Taking the various sources like: Nation Defense Strategy, Nation Security Strategy and many others into considerations, the vital national interest that the president sees at stake is the main press because the press is a world wide security in general and in international relations. The important national interest seen by the president is the participation of America to offer ends, ways and means to fighting terrorism and in particular, getting rid of the present Al Qaeda who commits terror attack by using Islam fashions as their scapegoat for terrorism.
In his statement, the president goes as far as stating that, he if he did not think that safety of the Americans and the security of the US were at stake in Afghanistan, he would gladly order each one of them to go home the following day. The president proceeds by saying that he his making such a decision because he is convinced beyond doubt that their security is at stake in Pakistan and in Afghanistan.
Question Two: The Department of Defense (DOD) must use both the soft and hard power not only to continue with the transformation of straight armed sources, but also to get ready to react to terror attacks as projectile and nuclear propagation, biological and chemical threats, and cyber and electronic combat.
The key to success is having an impartial strategy that offers defense to the Homeland, is triumphant in unadventurous wars at the same time managing to dissuade terrorist who are seen as threat to globalization. The irresistible subject all through the NDS is that, for these things to be made probable and long-lasting, the US should not act single-handedly. The main concern is to allow susceptible nations and partners to calm their governments and make their borders secure in a better way therefore denying protected havens for terrorists.
Question Three: The end identified in the president’s report compliment the foreign policy objectives as set by American administration. Getting rid of terrorist’s threat that intrinsic a country that lacks reliable governance systems remains the most vital ending in extinguishing transitional security threats. Together with this end, there is the institution of long lasting peace and a political stability in Somali. The end to institute a long lasting peace can only take place via the synchronized and combined efforts of the USAID, International Organizations, AU, US and other NGO’s. The enforcement of peace was not a universal remedy to rectify the conflict in Somali. The partial approach that was taken by America provided the best alternative to the situation.
Question 4: The world has today grown anesthetized to the disaster in Somali that seems continuous. Somali has experienced 18 years of aggressive disorder and warlordism, state fall down, failed peace talks, refugee flows and internal displacement, Islamic radicalism, internal famine, constant underdevelopment, regional alternative wars and piracy. It is therefore easier to wrap up that the current disaster in Somali is just a persistence of a long prototype of obstinate problems within the country and proceed to the next level.
The answer is that, there are more new things in Somali this time round and it would be a hazardous mistake of decision to brush off Somali’s present crisis. It will also be very hazardous to call for the exhausted formulas used by the U.N in peacekeeping, counterterrorism operations and sate building that have made little achievements from 1990. If these exhausted formulas continue, then Somali will continue experiencing dreadful levels of dislodgment, assassinations and armed conflicts, political render down, strong anti Americanism and radicalization.
