Iran, Afghanistan, Russia

Friday, May 28, 2010
This week an excellent op-ed on Iran appeared in the Wall Street Journal. It was written by Warren Kozak (whose book -- LeMay: The Life and Wars of General Curtis LeMay is on both my and the Chief of Staff of the Air Force's reading list). In the op-ed, Mr. Kozak argues we should actually pay attention to what the Iranians are saying … and then believe them. You can find the piece at:

Secondly, George Will has written an intriguing piece he calls "The Civilianization of the US Military."

Thirdly, David Kramer has penned an op-ed which appeared in the Washington Post entitled: "Russia First" is becoming "Russia Only." In the piece, Mr. Kramer states the US has not only put Russia first, but has been "neglecting and even abandoning other countries in the region." You can find the piece at:

For your consideration.
