ABSTRACT
The author explains his use of firefighting analogies to explore foreign policy and security issues. The author thinks that wildfire is the most complex natural phenomenon that can generate different outcomes. He appreciates the fact that fireground commanders allow wide latitude in behaviors and responses of leadership and crews. He proposes the U.S. government to visualize desired future state as indicated in the Incident Commander's Guidelines, which works in emergency response situations, so as to accomplish anything positive with its foreign policy.
