The threat from rogue states

By Robert I. Rotberg | November 6, 2004

AFTER IRAQ and Afghanistan, President Bush's foremost policy challenge is posed by rogue states, that is, states that threaten the United States and world peace. Which are the true "rogue" states? What is "rogueness" in the international arena? Do rogue states share certain common characteristics? If so, what should be done to curtail rogue states? How can rogue states be encouraged to behave less roguishly?

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

Will pre-emptive strikes and stand-offs be the future of U.S. policy? According to this report it very well could be. Decide for yourself what President Bush will do after leaving the starting gate for his second term.

A "rogue state" is one who defies the will of the international community.

One could say America is a rogue state.
