International Cooperation, Not Unilateral Policies, may be the Best Counterterrorist Strategy
Unformatted Document Text:  the Marine Barracks in Lebanon in 1983 is a prominent example. Crenshaw also argues that terrorism directed at the U.S. may be a mechanism for drawing the U.S. into a local conflict, perhaps to pressure the government to make reforms or to undermine its legitimacy. Regardless of the strategic intent behind attacks on the United States, or the virulence of anti-American ideology, our results show that the vast majority of terrorist attacks by foreign groups deemed dangerous to national security by the American government are in fact directed at non-U.S. targets. Local governments suffer the most. U.S. decision- makers might be well-advised to avoid parochialism and keep in mind the fact that even the most seriously threatening groups direct most of their activities elsewhere. This view of the issue suggests that international cooperation, not unilateral policies, may be the best counterterrorist strategy. 11

the Marine Barracks in Lebanon in 1983 is a prominent example.  Crenshaw also argues 
that terrorism directed at the U.S. may be a mechanism for drawing the U.S. into a local 
conflict, perhaps to pressure the government to make reforms or to undermine its 
legitimacy.
Regardless of the strategic intent behind attacks on the United States, or the virulence 
of anti-American ideology, our results show that the vast majority of terrorist attacks by 
foreign groups deemed dangerous to national security by the American government are in 
fact directed at non-U.S. targets.  Local governments suffer the most. U.S. decision-
makers might be well-advised to avoid parochialism and keep in mind the fact that even 
the most seriously threatening groups direct most of their activities elsewhere.   This view 
of the issue suggests that international cooperation, not unilateral policies, may be the 
best counterterrorist strategy.
