You’ll note that we have a permalink to the podcast feed in the near right sidebar, just above the Donate button. That’s really a placeholder until I figure out a better place to put it.
- India’s P-8s substantially increase its maritime surveillance capabilities.
- China’s anti-piracy mission turns four. In a related-but-not-consequential story, piracy is way, way down.
- Not necessarily convinced that South Korea’s current defense posture is unsustainable.
- If you haven’t previously read about this B-52 crash (and I think I’ve linked to it before) do so now. Great case study in leadership failure.
- Five greatest naval battles in the Asia-Pacific? If you ask me, “Guadalcanal” is cheating; I think I’d go with the Battle of Java Sea instead.
- Working through Russian concerns about U.S. nuclear posture.
- Speaking of Russia, I remain deeply skeptical of its naval modernization efforts. Then again, Russia has surely demonstrated a capacity in the past for relatively rapid naval buildup, so things could certainly happen.
- Customary international law, non-state actors, and U.S. criminal prosecutions.
I’ve determined, without too much soul-searching, to support Baltimore in tomorrow’s “Super” “Bowl.” I hate the Niners for most of my youth, but that’s faded; I also feel the need to represent for the West Coast. However, my general preference for the AFC and relatively (3 years) recent time in the Charm City predisposes me to favor the Ravens.
