FOX NEWS – The cover letter of a new edition of the American Psychological Association’s Handbook of Psychology contains a plea to readers, saying “the U.S. and the world need to stop treating this region as a ‘strategic’ location.”
The “strategic” is the title of the paper, written by psychologist James Martin.
The APA, the professional organization that administers the Handbook, says that its aim is to promote an open and honest discussion of psychology.
The text is based on the book by the American Psychologist.
The cover letter was published on the APA’s website and appeared on other social media sites.
The APA says it has not seen the letter and does not intend to publish it.
The paper says that in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the U.A.E. became a “strategically important place for U..
S.-based intelligence services.”
In the past, the world was “concerned about terrorist attacks that occurred in the region,” the paper says.
“However, the threat of future terrorist attacks has made this region a strategic place.”
The world, Martin says, is also concerned about the rise of violent extremism.
“Many people in this region have long believed that their own government or their own governments’ governments would provide for the safety and security of the region and its people.
Yet, despite all the efforts of governments and international actors, terrorism has continued to evolve and gain momentum,” the cover letter says.
Martin writes that the United States has made it “very clear” that it will not “relent in pursuing a path to security.”
“We do not seek to take the United Nations as our guarantor.
We have never been the guarantor of security,” he writes.
He also says the United Kingdom, France, the Netherlands, the United Arab Emirates, and Australia are all “strategy-minded.”
“These nations, each with their own national security priorities, have all committed to maintaining the status quo.
And while some may see the current geopolitical realities as being a positive one, the fact is, there is nothing to be gained from changing course,” Martin writes.”
Instead, we are calling for the U to take an active role in bringing an end to terrorism.
To do this, we need to shift the balance of power in the Arab world from the United states to our allies and partners.”
Martin says the U., as a member of the UAA, has made “a great contribution” in countering extremism in the UA.
