“Those advocates who work for world peace by urging a system of world government are called impractical dreamers.
Those impractical dreamers are entitled to ask their critics what is so practical about war.” -- Walter Cronkite

How many armed conflicts -- wars -- are going on in the world today?

Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

> Type of conflict: Territorial Dispute
> Start date: May 14, 1948
> Forces currently involved: Israel, Palestine, Hamas
> Continent: Asia
The longest-running unresolved conflict predates the creation of Israel nearly 74 years ago with the end of the British Mandate, a move that escalated tensions that had been simmering since the late 19th century. Since then, violence has ebbed and flowed. Despite the 1974 U.N.’s two-state solution and the promising talks between Israel and the Palestinians beginning in the 1990s, the conflict remains unresolved.

The Failure of War

by Wendell Berry

We still, by policy, give no consideration to nonviolent means of national defense. We do indeed make much of diplomacy and diplomatic relations, but by diplomacy we mean invariably ultimatums for peace backed by the threat of war... What the justifiers of these acts ignore is the fact—well-established by the history of feuds, let alone the history of war—that violence breeds violence.

"We must learn to acknowledge that the creation is full of mystery; we will never entirely understand it. We must abandon arrogance and stand in awe. We must recover the sense of the majesty of creation, and the ability to be worshipful in its presence. For I do not doubt that it is only on the condition of humility and reverence before the world that our species will be able to remain in it." - Wendell Berry

Shifting priorities, rethinking 'homeland' security, imagining peace, a new vision, connections, protecting and preserving 'the Commons', projecting peace time as a national security strategy... New definitions of national and global security, recognizing indivisible security interests... It is critical to move beyond the failed national security policies of the past.

GreenPolicy360 / New Horizons of Security


New Definitions of National... and Global Security

GreenPolicy360 & Strategic Demands / #StratDem

GreenPolicy360/StrategicDemands: The key to 21st century security is "strategic realism". Any full scientific assessment of security threats on the horizon is replete with environmental/global risks that are drawing daily into view. These risks are presenting a clear and present danger, in U.S. Department of Defense terms. A 'clear and present danger' has yet to be acknowledged by the US Department of Defense, or in the US military budget that approaches $1 trillion in annual spending. Other nations continue a race seeing security in terms of defense/military spending. This cannot be sustained. Forward planning with a new and more acutely aware vision of security is demanded now.

GreenPolicy360 and its associate Strategic Demands challenge prevailing views that are not focused as they must be on existential threats of our era.

A new vision of security must drive the politics of our times. New definitions of national and global security must become highest priorities.
