This is all outlined in his book, “The Clash of Civilisations” and was a pretext for the invasions of Iraq, Libya, and Syria. Refer to this excerpt from the Harvard Crimson; an article published in 1987 on the ‘reforms’ that Huntington advised the Apartheid South African government to take:


“But since neither of these preconditions–cooperation or control–existed in South Africa in 1981, most of Huntington’s paper focused on the process through which the basis for such an ‘elite conspiracy’ could be laid, a process he chose to call “reform.” Based on the model of Brazilian President Geisel’s “decompression”, or “liberalization”, Huntington recommended that the South African government pay attention to six factors. In order to wage a “two-front war against both stand-patters and revolutionaries” (p. 16), he said, reformers require:
