American focus on "radicalization" of Muslims

" Radicalization " of domestic Muslims, especially among youths, has reportedly become a homeland security concern of the United States. After being assaulted on 11 Sept. 2001, the United States have been fighting two wars in the predominantly- Muslim Iraq and Afghanistan. Obama has announced a surge of 34,000 soldiers for the Afghan War and reaffirmed the Augustinian doctrine of Just War recently in Oslo. Moreover, while the US-Iran relations are still generally negative, the Obama administration has focussed its security concern on Pakistan, especially with the support of India after the Mumbai Siege last year.
