BOSTON (CBS) – Global conflict has changed greatly in recent years. Gone are the days of nations fighting other nations. The two most recent U.S. wars demonstrated this, pitting our nation against “nonstate actors,” as Professor Amos Guiora calls the terrorist groups we are still fighting thousands of miles away from home.

Professor Guiora talks with Dan about these questions and other issues that we face in today’s world.
