Format: Hardcover
Yoo a professor of law at UC Berkeley, lays out the importance of a strong America in world affairs. Yoo makes it very clear how important it is for America to take the lead when American interests throughout the world are threatned. He does so by pointing to preventative defensive and pre-emtive offensive measures to combat the challanges faced by todays advasaries from terrorist groups such as ISIS in Iraq and Syria to how to deal with problems ranging from weapons of mass destruction/Iran, and many more. Professor Yoo is an expert when it comes to the law of war and he chronicles how America and the world should fight the wars of the 21st centruy to advance the global welfare of nations. We need more John Yoo's out there...I highly recomend this book.

John Yoo makes a very good case for pre-emtive strikes on bal guys when our global welfare is at stake. He backs up his ideas with what I take to be good research. Very thought provoking.

Format: Hardcover
John Woo is a unabashed interventionist who sees no limits or common sense when using the US Military to intervene in every dog and cat fight on the planet. He stupidly believes the United States can impose it's values on ''Barack-ward'' nations and that somehow, there will be a return on the ''investment'' of your kids lives and tax dollars. Essentially he wants us to run a non ending Vietnam or GWOT in perpetuity. As he is a Professor at UC Berkeley, it's indeed a mystery to me as to why the entire student body hasn't tarred and feathered him along with pitching him into San Pablo bay. Mr. Woo clerked for Clarence Thomas who is our best Supreme Court Justice. Please don't listen to John Woo's endless war beliefs. Military lawyers are the worst of the worst---look at Lindsay Graham!
