Global threat assessment 2009
Date of Issue2008
S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies
Whilst 2009 will continue to see terrorism as the pre-eminent security threat, much can be done by the West to reach out to alienated communities, especially in the Muslim world. The United States should remove Muslim mistrust and suspicion of America's intentions. Without Muslim public support, the fight against terrorism and extremism will be lost.
