The United States response to the September 11th attacks failed to adequately seek answers for why it happened and the implications for the nation's security and instead largely mystified more than it explained, according to Tschirgi (political science, American U. in Cairo, Egypt), who aims to identify the political, economic, social, and spiritual dimensions of Al Qaeda's terrorism against the United States by comparing it to other asymmetrical, if more limited, conflicts: Mexico's Zapatista Rebellion, the insurgency of Gama'a al-Islamiyya against the Egyptian government, and Nigeria's Ogoni uprising. While not ruling out vigorous military action against those who attacked the United States, Tschirgi argues that an effective strategy must seek to address marginalization in the Middle East, perhaps in a manner similar to the Mexican response to the Zapatistas.
