Is North Korea aiming to attack America? Or is this misdirection? Looking at America or American colonies (Guam) as Rocket Man’s target may be entirely wrong.
Putting aside the mistake Japan made at Pearl Harbor – a small attack they thought was the mere shooing-away of an almost militarily insignificant non-combatant trying to interfere in their years-long creation of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere (that resulted in the annihilation of two of their cities, the loss of millions of Japanese lives and the destruction of their country as an effective polity) – centuries have passed since the last attack […]
Why would Russia not ally with Iran?
Anti-Russian Sunni are on Russia’s southern border and within the Republics of the former USSR that Putin would like to rebuild. Shia Iran would love to destroy Sunni islam and rebuild the Persian Empire. Russia would love permanent warm-water ports on the Mediterranean (Shia Syria) and the Indian Ocean (Shia Iran). Put an Iranian ally in charge of that? Why not? By foolishly destroying Iraq, an ignorant America destroyed the only regional opponent capable of stopping Iran.
Together Russia & Iran can rid the region of Sunnis; doing so is in […]
Both Foreign Affairs and CATO are writing on the issue of forward deployment of American military forces.
They are starting from the wrong place.
Deployment of military forces is driven by strategy, which is downstream of politics, serving a political goal.
Rather than discuss the best way, or where, to deploy forces, why not backup and discuss the goal? Once the goal is agreed upon, strategy follows.

If it is to defend Europe, what are we asking those forces, and the American taxpayer to defend?
A) A continent that does […]
Trump’s presence on the world stage is unnerving those, Left and Right, who are invested in the Western post-war order. Their complaint is that he will upset what already is devolving to failure, as acknowledged by the people living in the countries of the West, if not by its out-of-touch elites.
With european fertility nonexistent, and the takeover of all future employment in europe by illiterate muslims as a result, the “West” now consists of N. America, Britain (maybe – post-Brexit, we shall see…), and a mercantilist East-Orthodox Russia trying to Westernize.

Fun read? You betcha
Riveting, brilliant, terrifying, hopeful, insightful beyond imagining. Turns your worldview upside down alongside a narrative you can’t put down. Truly one of the most extraordinary books I’ve ever read, as an avid fan of fiction and one who has studied China’s modern rise in great detail as a Commissioner on the U.S.-China Economic and Security […]
