In the Twilight of the Age of Westphalia, dosed again and toast in hand, face to face with confrontational issues that for whatever reason are unsweetly unable to be fixed with economic and/or political pressure.
Great Satan has increasingly resorted to a risque maneuver deploying enough hurt to resolve the sitch at the same incredible instant she minimizes her military losses, innocent civilian causalities and the always popular 'collateral damage.'
"Limited Force - that is"
CFR's Conflict Prevention and Nat'l Sec cat Micah Zenko unleashes "Between Threats And War" and examines delish discrete military ops and strikes courtesy of Great Satan over the last 2 decades. Deep level editing to cipher and discern why such attacks occured, if objectives were achieved, what all made it happen captain in success or failure.Like 36 events in all!
"...In the process, he both evaluates U.S. policy choices and recommends ways in which limited military force can be better used in the future. The insights and recommendations made by Zenko will be increasingly relevant to making decisions and predictions about the development of American grand strategy and future military policy.

An evaluation of Great Satan's choices at the diplopolititary salad bar and hot! reccomendations of new, wicked ways that Great Satan can unleash a 'limited' more better future force:
"... The insights and recommendations made by Zenko will be increasingly relevant to making decisions and predictions about the development of American grand strategy and future military policy.
