    Small time governmental bureaucrats using big words. The message is simple: you should die for them and they will take care with plans so you won't die, but they need to get as much tax money as they can get their hands on, in order to be able to protect you.

    Great textbook style analysis of tools in a counter-terrorist's toolbox. Don't necessarily agree with all of them, but each chapter is written by a different CT professional. Michael Sheehan's chapter on Diplomacy is a must-read. Great textbook style analysis of tools in a counter-terrorist's toolbox.
