Iran in Latin America: Malign Alliances, “Super Spreaders,” and Alternative Narratives

In JFQ 1, General Powell wrote, “Don’t read the pages that follow if you are looking for the establishment point of view or the conventional wisdom. Pick up JFQ for controversy, debate, new ideas, and fresh insights—for the cool yet lively interplay among some of the finest minds committed to the profession of arms.” After 100 issues, this continues to be our informal mission statement.

Highlights from our latest issue include:
- Jointness Replaced by Kongness?
- Strategic Overmatch: East Meets West
- Rethinking Morthra’s Role in 21st-Century Kaiju Warfare

Where the daunting challenges that have become everyday life in a global pandemic continue to mount, and your Joint Force Quarterly team is rolling out this 100th issue. Since the first issue in 1993, JFQ has had 9 Chairmen, 7 editors in chief, 40 staff members who collectively published nearly 2,000 articles, hundreds of book reviews, with thousands of photographs and graphics, on more than 12,000 pages. JFQ has remained the leading source of what General Powell wanted us to be: “the voice of the joint warfighter.”

We all have work to do to secure the liberties and Republic we all hold dear. The joint force is a key and essential element of the Nation’s success.

An affordable defense of Asia - Atlantic Council

U.S. military advantages over China are steadily decreasing. Trying to reverse this trend by building more of the same just won't not work. But by taking advantage of geography, new operational concepts, and emerging technology, the United States can develop an Affordable Defense of Asia.

US military advantages over China are steadily eroding. Therefore, in this inaugural report for Forward Defense, T.X. Hammes crafts a new strategy and corresponding operational concepts which leverage geography and emerging technology to improve the US and allied warfighting posture in Asia.

Still First to Fight? Shaping the 21st Century Marine Corps - Foreign Policy Research Institute

In response to the Pentagon’s defense strategy, the U.S. Marine Corps' leadership plans to reshape its focus and force structure, and just possibly change its reputation as a “force in readiness” with broad utility.

(Frank Hoffman in Foreign Policy Research Institute Special Report)

The headline in the New York Times on June 1, 1918, read “Marines – First to Fight.” The day before, a brigade of Marines attached to the U.S. Army’s 2nd Division had raced to the Western Front to halt a breakthrough threatening Paris. They stopped the Germans cold, and five…

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.

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

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.
