On the Path to Intellectual Overmatch - War on the Rocks

Achieving the Joint Chiefs’ new vision will require a commitment to lifelong learning—one internalized by every officer and reflected in service culture.

Detention Operations as a Strategic Consideration

The US military continues to make mistakes in detainee operations, which has reduced its ability to achieve national objectives. If we do not place significant emphasis on this critical aspect of planning, says the author, more mistakes will be made and the US military will lose credibility.

The Missing Element in Crafting National Strategy: A Theory of Success

Qassem Soleimani: Moscow's Syria Decision – Myth and Reality

In the wake of Qassem Soleimani’s targeted killing, some have portrayed Soleimani as having single-handedly persuaded Putin to launch Russia’s military intervention in Syria during his clandestine 2015 Moscow trip…But the legend being trumpeted – the narrative being portrayed – does not conform with the facts of the time or the true context for and timing of Russian decision-making about its fateful intervention into Syria.

On January 3, 2020, Iran’s Special Forces leader– IRGC Quds Force – Major General Qassem Soleimani, was killed by an American drone strike outside of the Baghdad International Airport in Iraq.

The Creation of a U.S. Space Force: It’s Only the End of the Beginning - War on the Rocks

A new U.S. Space Force has become a reality, so what’s next? The U.S. Space Force will need to develop a service ethos and distinct operational styles of warfare. Perhaps there will be a Space Service Academy and Space War College, similar to those in the other U.S. military services.

10 Odd Jobs of World War II

During World War II, there were a lot of surprising military jobs, including Crystal Grinder, Pigeoneer, and Artist. The Army even stationed soldiers at Walt Disney's studios for the duration of the war to make patriotic films for the public and instructional or training films for service members.

During World War II there were a lot of jobs that would seem strange in today's technologically focused military. Over the course of the war, technological advances reduced or eliminated the need for

Recent reports in Tass and Pravda, as relayed by the BBC, indicate that Russia’s effort to create a national internet system have gone beyond the theoretical to the practical.

Russia has begun testing a national internet system that would function as an alternative to the broader web, according to local news reports. Exactly what stage the country has reached is unclear, but certainly the goal of a resilient — and perhaps more easily controlled — internet is being pur...

America continues to view nuclear deterrence largely in Cold War terms. The continued reliance on obsolete deterrence concepts exposes a gap between policy and practice. The U.S. must eliminate this gap, argue the authors, by developing a tailored and flexible deterrence posture, which will give the Joint Force a broad spectrum of nuclear deterrence capabilities.

America must maintain credible nuclear deterrent capabilities to convince potential adversaries and allies alike that the US will defend its vital interests and will employ those capabilities, all

What’s Not to Like? Social Media as Information Operations Force Multi

Social media has enabled identity theft, targeted advertising, psychometric profiling, dissemination through bots and the creation of false personas. The same psychology that explains why social media is so credible and addictive also explains why social media platforms are vulnerable to attack. As a case in point, Russia’s Internet Research Agency launched the “translator project” which hacked voter registration data, stole the identities of thousands of American citizens, and posed as interest groups and political activists. The result, says the author, is the most effective influence campaign in world history.

Judicial Branch concealed it's own abuse of power, must be made public. Breaking News to Impeach Trump President Trump, FBI Director Christopher Wray, & staff must be held accountable for refusing to Honor Constitution's checks & balances, concealing Judicial Branch abuse of power imposing slavery. Trump criticized players as a diversion when he continued oppression upon Jesha Miller, a Veteran of the Vietnam Era that disgraces the Military serving to protect the American people, The SUPREME RESPONSIBILITY of President Trump is to preserve, protect, & Defend the Constitution but he refuses to Honor the checks & balances that uphold the integrity of the Constitution. The players kneel because of Social Injustice, Inequality, & police Brutality & the Constitution's checks & balances stop corruption & abuse of power, hold officials accountable which stops police brutality, Balances the scales of justice to stop social injustice & inequality , & secures the rights of " we the people " as intended by the FRAMERS of the Constitution so there is the ulterior motive to prevent equality by President Trump & his staff, he therefore must be impeached as demanded by the Constitution & oath of office, sign to impeach, this he brought upon himself refusing to honor the checks & balances. Also see: thefbiwray.blogspot.com & thechiefofstaffjohnkelly.blogspot.com who all concealed this from the public. See: jeshamiller.simplesite.com proving Trump used NFL as a diversion when the checks & balances he denied are the solution to our Country's problem of Government corruption. The Judicial Branch concealed this from the public by refusing to enforce freedom of the press to conceal from the public their own corruption & oppression. See; firstamendmentfreedomofpress.blogspot.com to prevent any transparency so the public doesn't know what their doing which is an EVIL. Media cannot censor nor government prevent in any way. { See: toucheturtle.simplesite.com for President Trump & FBI Director Wray petition to hold them accountable & the FBI Core Principles requiring Wray to rigorously comply to constitution & he refuses to enforce the rule of law.
