Why Nation Building is Needed to “Halt the Spread of Radical Islam” | The Cipher Brief

Before Donald Trump speaks out again on the subject of nation-building, I suggest he – or his staff – study what the Pentagon terms “Building Partner Capacity,” which has been expanding over the past decade and serves as what can only be termed the Defense Department’s part in nation-building.

Trump’s latest statement on the subject came on August 15 in Youngstown, Ohio, when he said, “If I become President, the era of nation-building will be ended. Our new approach, which must be shared by both parties in America, by our allies overseas, and by our friends in the Middle East, must be to halt the spread of Radical Islam.”
