Availability: Ready to download

The world today is overwhelmed by wars between nations and within nations, wars that have dominated American politics for quite some time.

Point of Attack calls for a new understanding of the grounds for war. In this book John Yoo argues that the new threats to international security come not from war between the great powers, but from the internal collapse of states, terrorist groups, the spread of weapons of mass destruction, and destabilizing regional powers. In Point of Attack he rejects the widely-accepted framework built on the U.N. Charter and replaces it with a new system consisting of defensive, pre-emptive, or preventive measures to encourage wars that advance global welfare. Yoo concludes with an analysis of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, failed states, and the current challenges posed by Libya, Syria, North Korea, and Iran.

    Realist bir bakış açısıyla kaleme alınmış olan kitap, gayet tutarlı bir mantık silsilesi ve akıcı bir İngilizce ile, "herkese tek tip gömlek" anlayışını eleştiriyor ve "BM sisteminin gerekmesi halinde kuvvet kullanımına müsaade edilecek" şekilde yeniden düzenlenmesi gerektiğini savunuyor. Kuvvet kullanma konusuna ilgi duyanların mutlaka okuması gereken bu kitap, hukukçuların uluslararası ilişkiler üzerine ne denli ciddi görüşleri ileri sürebileceğini açıkça ortaya koyuyor. Okurken hoşuma giden ba Realist bir bakış açısıyla kaleme alınmış olan kitap, gayet tutarlı bir mantık silsilesi ve akıcı bir İngilizce ile, "herkese tek tip gömlek" anlayışını eleştiriyor ve "BM sisteminin gerekmesi halinde kuvvet kullanımına müsaade edilecek" şekilde yeniden düzenlenmesi gerektiğini savunuyor. Kuvvet kullanma konusuna ilgi duyanların mutlaka okuması gereken bu kitap, hukukçuların uluslararası ilişkiler üzerine ne denli ciddi görüşleri ileri sürebileceğini açıkça ortaya koyuyor. Okurken hoşuma giden başka bir husus da yazarın filozofik tartışmalara ucundan değinerek (Dipnotlar veriliyor ve okuyucu düşünmeye "tahrik" ediliyor.) kitabın akıcılığını koruması. Basım tarihinin yakın olması nedeniyle güncel örnekleri içeren kitap bu yönden de ilgi çekici. İşin özü; küresel refahı arttırmak ve daha ağır çatışmaların yaşanmasını engellemek için, BM sistemi güncellenmelidir. Bu kapsamda, kuvvet kullanılmasına sınırlı hallerde de olsa müsaade edilmelidir. Nitekim, bugünkü çatışmasızlık halini sağlayan da BM Şartı'ndaki yaptırımlar değil, devletlerin caydırıcılığıdır. Çok istifade ettim, tavsiye ederim.

    [Sample] Some wrong facts, some good arguments, completely and utterly blind to any unforeseen negative consequences of the early, just, super-cool and simple, easy use of force that he advocates. Not saying he might not be right occasionally, just that ...well, what could possibly go wrong? He is however, entirely correct in that the old order and the UN certainly do help China and Russia obstruct anyone that works against their not-representative regimes.
