Preparing for the Naval War College | by Joe Byerly
The Naval War College is academically demanding; the reading and writing requirements alone are enough to keep a person in the library for a year. Fortunately, I was able to balance the academic requirements and time with my family due to the choices I made prior to attending ILE.

Russia Can't Beat NATO--But Putin May Try | by Tom Nichols

Russian snap military drills could turn into assaults on Baltic capitals | quotes Tom Nichols
As a best case scenario, the continuation of Russian provocation and snap military exercises could prove to be nothing more than bluster to distract from Moscow's activities in Ukraine.
