what should be part of the Democrat’s foreign policy vision, UCTR. UCTR stands for Universal Cooperative Threat Reduction. the right way to confront terror. my idea, but it is definitely not original. we simply need to truly join with all nations to combat terrorism. first, we must confront all of the reasons that it occurs. we must understand that we will not end it, but must instead work to make the whole world safer from it. we must not think of ourselves as somehow more important to protect, because true cooperation depends on all people working to protect all others. it seems that conflict will arise, especially over debate over the causes. but is that not the battle we want to fight, an aggressive one focused on ideas of justice and human rights? groundwork laid late in this article.
