Government interference in energy markets impedes national security

Posted by in Energy Policy, National Security

If the goal of government is to advance policies that keep America free, safe and prosperous, then in energy export reform, Washington has an opportunity to check all three blocks at once.

Gaps in the Nuclear Mission: 5 Things You Should Know

Posted by in National Defense, National Security

This was not the first review of U.S. nuclear forces since the Cold War, as the review noted. As the panel urged in the report, this time, the government’s response needs to be “sustained and effective.”

The EMP effect can also be created during an electromagnetic solar storm—known as a Carrington effect—and could impact the grid the same way as a nuclear weapon.

Ziggy’s Rebuttal of Jack Matlock’s Blame America First lies and those about Reagan

Posted by in National Defense, National Security

Matlock also claims the US did not really win the Cold War or cause the USSR’s collapse. Furthermore, he claims in his book that Ronald Reagan’s sole (and secondary) contribution to ending the Cold War was supposedly abandoning the hawkish policies of his first term.

Peter Brookes: Time’s on Side of Syria, Iran

Posted by in New American Feminism

And the DOD’s genuine strategy from just 2 years ago (when budget circumstances were even worse), the 2010 QDR, is quite different from this pseudostrategy.
