Domestic Consensus Will Set Limits

Yew, Lee Kuan
December 2006
Forbes Asia;12/25/2006, Vol. 2 Issue 22, p14
The article comments on the war on terrorism policy of the U.S. Unlike what happened in Vietnam, the war on terror will not end when U.S. forces leave Iraq. U.S. people have to work out their best options. Domestic conflicts between Republicans and Democrats over the causes of the terror threat and what is needed to combat it will only lead to a tragic repeat of the bitter divisiveness experienced during the administration of former U.S. President Richard Nixon.
