U.S. policy and strategy toward Afghanistan after 2014 by Larry P Goodson( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 56 libraries worldwide
As the United States continues to withdraw troops from and prepares to leave Afghanistan, Afghanistan faces multifaceted and significant challenges of governance, economy, security, and regional dynamics. These are all occurring within the context of the potential for an expanded civil war when international forces leave the country. It is time to refocus from the conflict itself and ask hard, but realistic, strategic and policy questions as to the future of Afghanistan, and what role, if any, the United States should play in shaping that future. The authors' answers to these questions provide the foundation for recommendations to U.S. policy and strategy in order to achieve current and future national security interests in the regions that Afghanistan straddles
Strategic culture and violent non-state actors : weapons of mass destruction and asymmetrical operations concepts and cases by James M Smith( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
This Occasional Paper combines three separate threads of analysis on culture and violent nonstate actors as a launching pad to spur further research into this critical arena of culture and security. In the first contribution, "Strategic Culture and Violent NonState Actors: Concepts and Templates for Analysis," James M. Smith lays out a conceptual basis and a series of templates for guiding the analysis of culture and violent nonstate actors. These templates focus on the analysis of WMD acquisition and use, and on culturally driven operational campaigns. In the second contribution, "Strategic Culture, Al Qaida, and Weapons of Mass Destruction," Jerry M. Long applies a cultural analysis of radical Islam and al Qaida in discussing the many factors and influences involved in the core al Qaida group's WMD decisions. His work graphically demonstrates the complexity of such decisions for that core group, and suggests that what many may find as counter-intuitive caution plays a major role here. In the final contribution, "The Taliban Insurgency and Its Tribal Dynamics: An Analysis of 'Shabnamah' (Night Letters)," Thomas H. Johnson, in examining a tribal insurgent psychological campaign in Afghanistan, demonstrates that traditional beliefs, myths and stories, and behavioral influences can be manipulated for significant effect in countering U.S. efforts to gain stability and legitimacy for the Afghan government. Together these papers underscore the central role of culture in analyzing and understanding nonstate adversaries
Taliban narratives : The use and power of stories in the Afghanistan conflict by Thomas H Johnson( Book )
3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Why has the Taliban been so much more effective in presenting messages that resonate with the Afghan population than the United States, the Afghan Government and their allies? This book, based on years of field research and the assessment of hundreds of original source materials, examines the information operations and related narratives of Afghan insurgents, especially the Afghan Taliban, and investigates how the Taliban has won the information war. 00Taliban messaging, wrapped in the narrative of jihad, is both to the point and in tune with the target audiences it wishes to influence. On the other hand, the United States and its Kabul allies committed a basic messaging blunder, failing to present narratives that spoke to or, often, were even understood by their target audiences. Thomas Johnson systematically explains why the United States lost this "battle of the story" in Afghanistan, and argues that this defeat may have lost the U.S. the entire war, despite its conventional and technological superiority
