We have, with the election of Donald Trump,a once-in-a-century opportunity to rethink, reinvent, and reinvest in our national military concepts, doctrine, human capital, organizations, technologies, and command structures, while eradicating much of the waste that is characteristic of a “government specifications cost plus” approach to contracting. Donald Trump won against all odds, against both parties, without the support of the military-industrial complex. Donald Trump is “unshackled” (his word) – his instincts on costly foreign entanglements and the utility of organizations such as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) are on display.

Wars are won or lost in the decade or two before those wars begin. Whether countries have a Grand Strategy or not; evaluate all high-level threats or not; devise a coherent force structure in which all services and civilian agencies are complementary, inter-operable, and sustainable or not; invest in the human factor for leadership and solider agility or not – these will determine the outcome of future wars a decade or two before the first shot is fired.

If the US Army does not re-invent itself, it will absolutely not win the next war.

SchwartzReport: Top Agribusiness Companies Poisoning Clean Water with Unlimited Garbage and Pesticide Dumping

This is one of the central failures of American corporate vampire capitalism. Because it only considers profit as a priority, polluting the water of a nation and putting the full spectrum of life at risk is no big deal, and they want to be allowed to continue it.

Top Agribusiness Food Companies Dumping Waste in Our Waters
ELIZABETH RENTER – Natural Society/Nation of Change

Companies like Tyson Foods, Cargill, Inc., and Perdue Farms Inc. dump their garbage-more than 206 million pounds of it-into our water almost every year and leave others to worry about the clean-up. Now, as the Environmental Protection Agency considers a rule to restore the Clean Water Act, these companies are pulling out all the stops to maintain their freedom to dump and pollute, regardless of the toxic outcomes.
