Competition for America's #1 Spot

"Non-American networks: Opportunity or Threat" is an interesting, and thoughtful, look at international networks, emerging competitors for America's position as world superpower.

American Interests put some thought into this post. My usual disclaimer that what's at the other end of links isn't necessarily something I endorse, but this should be worth reading.

My first reaction is that America, and every other country, can use competition. Human beings seem to be rather lazy creatures, unless something is goading us to peak performance.

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
