Naval Briefing NB 04/17 April 2017, by LeDahu

The various West/US/NATO deployments puts the security environment in Eastern Europe, Syria and South China Sea in a precarious situation.   Not in the news but… The USA flagged Ro-ro “Liberty Passion”, recently called into Beirut on the 4th April.  It is doing a whistle stop tour of some of the seven seas, so it seems.  It’s previous port call was Constanta in Romania, dropping off 200 or so pieces

In Germany NATO films “Freedom Shock” with Russian speaking civilians

On the last day of March my true love came to me and asked for the Russian (Polish) speaking extras to act as the “villagers” being invaded by the US military.

RT posted more details on this NATO’s open casting call, NATO acting up: Alliance looking

Sandwiching NATO in Ukraine, by Scott Humor

When I started my master’s program in an American university, I also took work as a web developer, and programming was making me very hungry. My tuition paid for a meal plan and the use of a buffet-style dining hall, but as the only Russian there, I was the subject of extreme scrutiny by the student body of “food police,” resulting in my inability to take a second helping of

Naval Brief 02/17 January 14th, 2017 by LeDahu

The wider scene “Maritime reconnaissance near Russian territorial waters has intensified by 50 percent.” Libya Last week, an unconfirmed report was circulated on social media, announcing a Russian navy missile firing exercise off the Libyan coast, between Benghazi and Tobruk, (08-11 Jan). If indeed there was really a NOTAM released on this, then it suggested activity by the  “Admiral Kuznetsov” group, (whose last confirmed AIS location was SW of Crete).

In the first ten days of the new year we see the conflicts from 2016 getting worse.

What’s goes around comes around, or How Russia and the US are trading punches, by Scott Humor

This article was first published by the Duran Three years ago someone’s video parody of a “Russian guy’s reaction” to a meteor falling over Chelyabinsk went viral.  “Russia Today” even included it into its reportage of how the Russian dashcam videos become internet sensations [2:24]. This 10 sec video had done more to project the toughness of Russians than all the fireworks of Vitaly Churkin’s diplomatic rhetoric.  Hands down, Churkin

Russia In response to the US and Israel shooting down Russian jet and recently shooting down the helicopter, Russia’s long range bombers bombed the US and UK training camps for ISIS terrorists on the border with Jordan.  Prior, these camps weren’t targeted by Russia per agreement with the US.

Rather than develop strategies based on ‘hybrid’ challenges (an elusive and catch-all term), I believe decision-makers should stay away from
