9780742549524: A Devil's Triangle: Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and Rogue States

The bad news is that with the end of the Cold War, threats to international peace and security became less predictable and more diverse. The rise of international terrorism, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and ballistic missiles, and the troubling actions of rogue states replaced the US-USSR superpower rivalry as the central organizing theme of the new national security environment. The idea of a "peace dividend," consisting of years of international tranquility and stability, were dashed on September 11, 2001. The threats of the Cold War were supplanted by new national security environment characterized by unpredictable, motivated, capable adversaries posing multiple threats. Peter Brookes, one of the most respected national security experts in the United States, reminds Americans that the world continues to be a very dangerous place, filled with people and groups eager to topple the United States. This devil's triangle-the intersection of terrorism, Chemical/Biological/ Radioactive/Nuclear weapons, and state sponsors-raises the timely question, What should America do about these new security challenges?

America is at war and there is no other course but action. The United States can face these threats squarely and emerge victorious if we have the will and resolve to carry it through. Terrorism can be defeated. Proliferation can be curtailed. The behavior of rogue states can be modified. The United States is in an epic struggle in the defense of freedom and our way of life. A failure to identify, understand, and meet these security challenges head on could lead to an incident that would make the unspeakable horrors of 9/11 seem like a minor tragedy. With resolve, determination and a willingness to lead, America will successfully meet these challenges, and freedom will prevail.

Review:

This book will scare you to death―but you must read it. Peter Brookes paints a frightening picture of the evil over which America must triumph―and will, if policy makers are smart enough to follow his advice. (Linda Chavez, president, Becoming American Institute)

A Devil's Triangle is a valuable read for anyone wanting to understand the emerging threats to American national security―terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, and rogue states. With an insider's resume, Brookes has written an insightful book that makes sense of the complex, global security environment we face today, and explains what to do about it. (William Bennett, Former United States Secretary of Education)

Here at last is the book we needed, but―preferring peaceful sleep―didn't want [to read.] Peter Brookes brings his considerable experience in national defense and intelligence to describe the vast threat the civilized world faces from rogue states, outlaw regimes and terrorist groups [who have increasing access to ballistic missiles and weapons of mass destruction.] He reminds us that 9/11 was only the beginning of a prolonged war that will test our national will and determine whether we have a future to fashion. Never has it mattered more that we understand the scope of these dangerous new challenges, nor a book more timely and necessary to that understanding. (Kathleen Parker)

Of all the essays, books, and treatises on the new world order of 'Terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction and Rogue States,' Peter Brooke's A Devil's Triangle is by far the best. He not only presents a cogent guide for understanding this dangerous new environment but he offers solutions to the only nation who can lead the world's battle for survival. A must read. (Senator Malcolm Wallop (R-WY))

A field manual for 21st century survival. Brookes, a Heritage Foundation foreign-policy analyst, has produced a comprehensive, highly readable and fact-filled summary of the threats that confront America and the West. (Gordon Cucullu, Former Special Forces lieutenant colonel and author of "Separated at Birth: How North Korea Became the Evil Twin" New York Post)
