"In the aftermath of the terror campaign launched on September 11, 2001, the United States declared war against global terror. It identified the Al Qaida organization and Afghanistan under the Taliban regime as the initial targets of the offensive, and Iraq as the next. However, aside from the countries included by President Bush in the "Axis of Evil" (Iraq, Iran and North Korea), a triangle of countries in the Red Sea region are also potential targets in the war against terror - Sudan, Somaha, and Yemen."
"Shay examines the three countries designated as the Red Sea Terror Triangle, and explores the lies each maintains with Islamic terror, as well as the reciprocal links between them. Understanding these countries is of critical importance, since all or some of them may constitute a base for Islamic terror organizations in the future."--Jacket
