sanctions and incentives as tools of international peacemaking.

Cortright’s/ Ending Obama’s War/ (2011) offers a critical analysis of  
U.S./NATO military policy in Afghanistan and Pakistan,and his August 2012  
report, /Afghan Women Speak: Enhancing Security and Human Rights/ [1], shows  
that responsible military withdrawal will enhance their chances of  
development and dignity.

prevention of war. He opposed the Vietnam war as an active duty  
soldier,1968-71; was the Executive Director of SANE, the Committee for a Sane  
Nuclear Policy, 1978 to 1988; and was co-founder and co-chairs Win Without
