On July 12, Sigal P. Mandelker, undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence at the . Treasury, told journalists in Dubai that we wanted to disrupt the "despicable use of Iranian revenue" across the Mideast. The expansion of protests in Iran constitutes a crisis for the Iranian regime and an opportunity to use the people’s resentment as leverage against the regime, per Tanter in Newsmax.

I have re-read the book after a few years and was struck by how the analysis from 1999 is more relevant today, even after 11 eventful years. The dynamics described by the author in 1999 have turned into even greater threats today. The author shows remarkable foresight in not only identifying the players that shape our foreign policy reality but also the dynamics behind the conflicts. Definitely worth reading.
The United States faces new and complex foreign policy challenges from non-traditional sources since the demise of the Soviet Union. It is clear that these challenges will come from smaller, more militant, idealistic countries and leaders trying to acquire and improve weapons of mass destruction. Terrorism will clearly become the weapon of choice for these actors in the 21st Century. Dr. Tanter has laid out the threat that many of the world's "rougue" nations and leaders pose to U.S. national security. More importantly he has suggested courses of action for policy makers and implementors to take. It is clear that the U.S. needs to update policy on many nations and organizations. His strong, no-nonsense approach to national security and international relations will not be well received among the "cookies and milk" crowd, but the long-term security of the U.S. depends on the ability American policy-makers to rise to the challenges that face them and make the tough decisions to protect American interests. Tanter's Rouge Regimes should be on their short list of references.
I read a lot of foreign policy stuff, and this is the most interesting one I've seen in over a year. The personal insights, stories, and legends make these 'Rogues' come alive. Tanter must have an amazing rolodex to know that, not only does Kim- Il Jong have 'pleasure teams,' but also their names.
Tanter's book has almost no objectivity with regards to concepts of rogue states and regimes. The point of view taken is merely that of the United States (itself perhaps the biggest "rogue state" in the world today). In fact, Tanter has no problem with the fact that his book is merely an extension of US foreign policy. For example, after he states that Cuba has no large army, no weapons of mass destruction, nor has it engaged in terrorist acts, he still calls Cuba a rogue regime "because of historical tensions, Washington considers Castro a rogue leader--thus Cuba itself is an outlaw regime." (x) Lybia is consider a called a "rejectionist"[?] state because it does not accept the American-led peace process with Israel. It is clear now that the American-led peace process was never really to benefit the Palestinains in any way, but Tanter conveninetly overlooks these kinds of facts. Moral of the story: Go with Chomsky's book on Rogue Nations and skip this extension of Kissinger-type foreign policy.
