Summary Homeland Siege uses current enemy intelligence as a lead-in to better tactical technique for U.S. troops and policemen. But this intelligence doesn't come from some foreign shore; it comes from the borders, highways, and urban centers of America---with the enemy being international organized crime. The book first checks into which Hispanic and Asian gangs may be controlling the wholesale distribution of drugs. Then it provides chapters on drug route identification, hostage rescue, and collateral-damage-free defense. All three topics should interest police and military alike. The lessons of Homeland Siege will make U.s. streets safer to walk and Afghan villages easier to pacify.
Part One of Homeland Siege discusses the possibility of foreign power's indirect assault on the American homeland. The most flagrant evidence of such an assault has been cyber, but it may well entail a mushrooming crime wave. Such things are possible in 4th-Generation Warfare (4GW)---that which is fought in the political, economic, psychological, and martial arenas simultaneously. If such an attack were in progress, U.S. leaders would be hesitant to commit enough of their Armed Forces to stop it.
Part Two discusses the extent to which U .S. military and police missions have merged over the years. Then, Part Three extensively researched chapters on drug route identification, hostage rescue, and collateral-damage-free defense. They will help U.S. police to handle the next Stateside terrorist incident and U.S. personnel to defeat the drug-funded Taliban.
