Nationalist governments in China, Japan, and India have led these countries to make bold moves in the strategic domain of space. A lack of nationalism and cultural pride in the United States is causing America to lose–bigly.
In this piece, I argue that those European states most directly threatened by Russia must enhance their military capabilities.
In my Sunday column at American Greatness, I argue that the United States must move closer to Poland, in order to deter Russia while assiduously working to make the mother-of-all geopolitical deals with Moscow to avoid an actual war and end this silly Cold War 2.0.
In quantum computing, biotech, and space mining the United States is competing for dominance with China…and the U.S. is losing. Innovation and disruption go hand-in-hand whichever side embraces this first will win the 100-Year Marathon.
The United States won the West, specifically California, with an early form of what Sean McFate would refer to as “shadow warfare.” Putin did something similar in Crimea in 2014. Rather than decry it impotently, the United States should wage its own shadow war in defense of its allies (until Washington and Moscow can actually create a workable peace deal between themselves, that is).
Russia has behaved boldly on the world stage under Putin. Now, I believe they are targeting Western communication linkages in space and undersea in order to render the US deaf, dumb, blind all to achieve their geopolitical goals of reclaiming a safe space buffering their borders from Europe.
In my recent op-ed for The American Spectator, I analyze the growing Sino-Russian alliance and how the United States helped to create it.
Vladimir Putin gave a recent statement that was full of doublespeak. I break this statement down.
President Trump is a transactional leader. So, too, is Vladimir Putin. Let’s do the mother-of-all geopolitical deals and get on with more pressing matters of state already. Neither Ukraine nor Venezuela are worth risking a wider war with Russia. And, despite what “experts” in the United States claim, Russia is a declining power with delusions of grandeur. American policy toward Russia has left Putin with little hope. Thus, as he is increasingly boxed in by the West and a rising China to his east, the likelihood of Putin lashing out militarily against the West is higher now than it has ever been.
The ongoing American effort to destabilize the vile Maduro regime in Venezuela appeared to be a gallant attempt by Washington to hone its own shadow warfare capabilities. If that’s the case, then, the United States needs to go back to the drawing board because our rivals are better at this kind of warfare than we are. Should this situation persist, then, you can expect America’s rivals in Moscow and Beijing (and elsewhere) to continue challenging American power… and to keep achieving their objectives while America fails to accomplish its own goals. Over time, this will lead to a victory for autocracy in the ongoing competition between the world’s autocracies and democracies.
