An End to Evil charts the agenda
for what’s next in the war on terrorism, as articulated by David Frum, former
presidential speechwriter and bestselling author of The Right Man, and
Richard Perle, former assistant secretary of defense and one of the most
influential foreign-policy leaders in Washington.
This world is an unsafe place for Americans—and the U.S. government
remains unready to defend its people. In An End to Evil, David Frum and Richard
Perle sound the alert about the dangers around us: the continuing threat from
terrorism, the crisis with North Korea, the aggressive ambitions of China. Frum
and Perle provide a detailed, candid account of America’s vulnerabilities: a
military whose leaders resist change, intelligence agencies mired in
bureaucracy, diplomats who put friendly relations with their foreign colleagues
ahead of the nation’s interests. Perle and Frum lay out a bold program to
defend America—and to win the war on terror.
Among the topics this book addresses:
- why the United States risks its security if it submits to the
authority of the United Nations
- why France and Saudi Arabia have to be treated as adversaries, not allies,
in the war on terror
- why the United States must take decisive action against Iran—now
- what to do in North Korea if negotiations fail
- why everything you read in the newspapers about the Israeli-Arab
dispute is wrong
- how our government must be changed if we are to fight the war on
terror to victory—not just stalemate
- where the next great terror threat is coming from—and what we can do
to protect ourselves.
An End to Evil will define the
conservative point of view on foreign policy for a new generation—and shape the
agenda for the 2004 presidential-election year and beyond. With a keen
insiders’ perspective on how our leaders are confronting—or not confronting—the
war on terrorism, David Frum and Richard Perle make a convincing argument for why
the toughest line is the safest line.
