President Obama’s released National Strategy for Counterterrorism


The "Strategy" believes that although Osama bin Laden have been killed, but today the main threat that the United States facing is still the "base" organization and its branches. In addition, in South Asia, Arab region, East Africa, Europe and Southeast Asia, "base" branch of the organization and its activities are rampant. So that, the U.S. focus on counter-terrorism strategy in many ways to strengthen and adjust.

Maintenance and implementation of the so-called core American values, American administrations have mentioned a number of files, the "strategy" is no exception. "Strategy" that is not only the core values ​​of the founding of the United States, but also to protect U.S. national security, including building a responsible government, respect for individual privacy, freedom and rights, security and transparency of information to find a balance between the law anti-terrorism. Do this, the U.S. counter-terrorism activities not only in the country to get people's approval, but also in the international community the opportunity to vigorously implement their own values.

For the U.S., the terrorist organization is extremely fragmented, it was impossible to go it alone with its eradication, especially in the domestic economy was sluggish situation, to seek partners to share the security burden on terror may well be a great good policy. "Strategy" which pointed out that as long as conducive to terrorism, the United States not only to the countries with the same ideology of all-round cooperation, but also at odds with the ideology of "alien" countries to cooperate, pull them into the United States anti-terrorism camp, of the United States "assimilation." In addition, the United States should strive to build a mechanism for multilateral cooperation against terrorism, including international, continental and regional level three, let the whole world more and more countries accept the U.S. anti-terrorism standards for the U.S. anti-terrorism strategy.

With the terrorist organization to the direction of diversity and flexibility, the U.S. anti-terrorism measures will improve timely manner, to enhance counter-terrorism capacity. This "strategy" that the first point is set by the U.S. government agency the power, to unite as "an string" because whether it is strategic or tactical-level anti-terrorism co-ordination between various government agencies are successful with the same the key. Therefore, we must ensure that all government institutions, "the sword of terrorism" at the same time point in the same direction. In addition to terrorism in the short term and long-term planning to strike a balance. This reflects the pragmatic to the United States before trying to get rid of the negative impact of terrorism, the use of appropriate means to enhance U.S. security, while the activities of terrorist organizations, the loss of space, so as to avoid short-term tactical-level anti-terrorism anti-terrorism activities eventually brought to the strategic level injury.

In order to prevent the occurrence of terrorist activities or terrorist activities from both recover as quickly as possible, the United States will build a new "flexible" culture. This culture will show a terrorist organization, the United States will work to protect their land and people, terrorism does not change the U.S. foreign and national security policy. "Strategy" that, while such a culture does not make the automatic surrender of terrorist organizations, but it can reduce its desire to attack specific targets, and so that their activities will fail.

There are both inheritance and changes National Strategy for Counterterrorism in the post-Bin Laden era. Inheritance is committed to defeat terrorist organizations, "ambition", change is the development of the situation based on the specific strategic tools and principles appropriate adjustments. But its essence is only one, is announced to the world of the 21st century is still the American century, any country daring to challenge the U.S. hegemony, organizations and individuals, will be subject to U.S. sanctions or completely eliminated.
