ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the best approach for the war on terror, specifically against the Islamic radicalism of the al Qaeda network in the U.S. It outlines the battle of the country against this radicalism, which is rooted from the Cold War when each side had an effective deterrent against nuclear first strikes. The mutual assured destruction (MAD) fastened peace and is still works well against Russia, China and Korea. However, it notes that this has little effect on Islamist terrorists.
