This afternoon Cheryl and I recorded a podcast on the latest developments in the Russia-Ukraine War. We chat a bit about operational realities, but most of the discussion is about politics, strategy and diplomacy. We touch on the apparently maximal move in Russian rhetoric about the war, contrast it with the limitations imposed by Russian military performance, discuss our concerns about escalation, contemplate the wisdom of SecDef Austin’s statement about “weakening” Russia, and finally noodle about the post-Ukraine future of arms control. You cannot, it seems, out-crazy the Russians on nuclear weapons.
The LGM podcast is now available from a variety of corporate overlords, so please perform freedom by making your consumer choice. We would very much appreciate reviews, whether of the thoughtful written variety or just by clicking on the appropriate star.
And of course the podcast is the most expensive and time-consuming element of the LGM project, so any support is appreciated.
