Following the 9/11 attacks, approximately four million Americans have turned eighteen each year and more than fifty million children have been born. These members of the millennial and post-millennial generation have come of age in a moment marked by increased anxiety about terrorism, two protracted wars, and policies that have raised questions about the United States's role abroad and at home. Young people have not been shielded from the attacks or from the wars and policy debates that followed. Instead, they have been active participants—as potential military recruits and organizers for social justice amid anti-immigration policies, as students in schools learning about the attacks or readers of young adult literature about wars. The War of My Generation is the first essay collection to focus specifically on how the terrorist attacks and their aftermath have shaped these new generations of Americans. Drawing from a variety of disciplines, including anthropology, sociology, cultural studies, and literary studies, the essays cover a wide range of topics, from graphic war images in the classroom to computer games designed to promote military recruitment to emails from parents in the combat zone. The collection considers what cultural factors and products have shaped young people's experience of the 9/11 attacks, the wars that have followed, and their experiences as emerging citizen-subjects in that moment. Revealing how young people understand the War on Terror—and how adults understand the way young people think—The War of My Generation offers groundbreaking research on catastrophic events still fresh in our minds.

A spiritual novel, in a fantasy format. In this day and age, devine providence has yet to be defined. This novel will attempt to answer those questions. Beginning within this story line, you will see many amazing things. Such as the spirit of a lion, merging with a human body. As well as, spirits of past loved ones, merging with their living relatives, for the common good. A woman is frozen in ice, in her dragon form, yet still gives birth to a daughter. Beings consumed by evil, throughout their lives, overcoming it with good. Dark souls being forgiven for their evil deeds, and returned to the world of man. Giving mention to our galaxy-father, and going into his service, as the phoenix, was too powerful to stay on earth. Secondly, dealing with the core of man, his spiritual body has not yet been defined, by man. When one passes on, his spirit is said to go to heaven or hell, this novel defines the hell, such as; beings moving volcanic lava, and such, as mother earth's blood. Coming from her heart, which is her core. Third take fantasy, man becoming animal, and vice-versa. Man's soul unlimited.

Examining major terrorist acts and campaigns undertaken in the decade following September 11, 2001, internationally recognized scholars study the involvement of global terrorist leaders and organizations in these incidents and the planning, organization, execution, recruitment, and training that went into them. Their work captures the changing character of al-Qaeda and its affiliates since the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq and the sophisticated elements that, despite the West's best counterterrorism efforts, continue to exert substantial direction over jihadist terrorist operations. Through case studies of terrorist acts and offensives occurring both in and outside the West, the volume's contributors investigate al-Qaeda and other related entities as they adapted to the strategies of Operation Enduring Freedom and subsequent U.S.-led global counterterrorism programs. They explore whether Osama bin Laden was indeed reduced to a mere figurehead before his death or continued to influence al-Qaeda's global activities. Did al-Qaeda become a loose collection of individuals and ideas following its expulsion from Afghanistan, or was it reborn as a transnational terrorist structure powered by a well-articulated ideology? What is the preeminent terrorist threat we face today, and what will it look like in the future? This anthology pinpoints the critical patterns and strategies that will inform counterterrorism in the coming decades.

Philip Bobbitt follows his magisterial Shield of Achilles with an equally provocative analysis of the West's struggle against terror. Boldly stating that the primary driver of terrorism is not Islam but the emergence of market states (like the U.S. and the E.U.), Bobbitt warns of an era where weapons of mass destruction will be commodified and the wealthiest societies even more vulnerable to destabilizing, demoralizing terror. Unflinching in his analysis, Bobbitt addresses the deepest themes of history, law and strategy.

The United States is the greatest country in the history of the World. Terrorism, however, threatens the very foundation of our greatness. As a country, we must overcome our white guilt, entitlement mentality, and lack of Congressional leadership. We must acknowledge that evil exists and it needs to be dealt with. America changed on 9/11 and we no longer have an excuse to ignore the global threats we face. This book attempts to address an issue that has been dominated by a discourse of media pundits and scholars who were raised in a different era (Vietnam-Watergate). Terrorism is a challenge that America is facing today, but the struggle will be ongoing. The divisions within the Baby Boomers will force the Upcoming Generation to step up and defeat the Islamic Extremists' mentality. These challenges provide the opportunity for the Upcoming Generation to develop a heroic legacy for itself as a generation that defended the very essence of freedom.

Targeting Top Terrorists

Leaders are important in every organization, but they are especially important in terrorist groups. ... understanding how to prevent future generations from joining terrorist groups are vital to our longterm counterterrorism strategy, ...

When President Barack Obama announced the assassination of Osama bin Laden, many Americans hoped the killing of al-Qaida’s leader would sound the death knell for the organization. Since 9/11, killing and capturing terrorist leaders has been a central element in U.S. counterterrorism strategy. This practice, known as leadership decapitation, is based on the logic that removing key figures will disrupt the organization and contribute to its ultimate failure. Yet many scholars have argued that targeted killings are ineffective or counterproductive, questioning whether taking out a terror network’s leaders causes more problems than it solves. In Targeting Top Terrorists, Bryan C. Price offers a rich, data-driven examination of leadership decapitation tactics, providing theoretical and empirical explanations of the conditions under which they can be successful. Analyzing hundreds of cases of leadership turnover from over two hundred terrorist groups, Price demonstrates that although the tactic may result in short-term negative side effects, the loss of top leaders significantly reduces terror groups’ life spans. He explains vital questions such as: What factors make some terrorist groups more vulnerable than others? Is it better to kill or capture terrorist leaders? How does leadership decapitation compare to other counterterrorism options? With compelling evidence based on an original dataset along with an in-depth case study of Hamas, Targeting Top Terrorists contributes to scholarship on terrorism and organizational theory and provides insights for policy makers and practitioners on some of the most pressing debates in the field.
