So what are the principal national security challenges facing the Trump administration when it takes over in January ? The Energy Future Energy is both a strategic -geopolitical challenge and an opportunity for the United States. The second will be to deal with increasingly vocal and organized publics. Think of what our country could do—and the signal it would send abroad—if a Trump administration could build domestic political consensus on creating jobs, reforming taxes, strengthening education and skills training, rebuilding infrastructure, streamlining regulations, and making government more efficient. If left to fester, internal conflicts will trigger spillover into inter-state conflicts.

      Even where the exercise of national security is subject to good governance and the rule of lawa risk remains that the term national security may be become a pretext for suppressing unfavorable political and social views. But in reality there are significant structural weaknesses in the U. In the United States will have to manage these competing interests in a vastly changing environment. It also appears that the book was not well Mark Cameron, the author or National Security, is a better story teller than a writer. The US will face three types of threats from adversaries: Asymmetric threats in which state and nonstate adversaries avoid direct engagements with the US military but devise strategies, tactics, and weapons-some improved by "sidewise" technology-to minimize US strengths and exploit perceived weaknesses. This has set a very dangerous precedent.
