Robert Steele: National Security Strategy — The Mattis Version

DoD, Strategy

Platitudes without integrity.  This is the 2018 Mattis version but this is what the good people trapped in  the bad system called the Pentagon are working with.  This “strategy” lacks integrity, is divorced from reality, does not do true cost economics, and is not helpful to American security.

Robert Steele @ Amazon: REINVENTING NATIONAL SECURITY — Grand Strategy, Global Reality, and the U.S. Army — Everything Our President Is Not Being Told

Ethics, Military, Peace Intelligence, Strategy
Amazon Page – Color Print

This book brings together three monographs on grand strategy, global reality, and re-inventing the U.S. Army as well as the rest of the Department of Defense — and in passing addressing needed changes in diplomacy, development, and intelligence, all of which are just as broken as the military.

Amazon Page – Kindle

The U.S. military today is 50% waste, committing crimes against humanity in over 100 countries — alongside CIA drone assassination operations — and generally not able to win a war nor maintain a peace. Our generals and admirals are not being held accountable for telling the truth — they are themselves sadly divorced from reality and unable to appreciate the truth even when it is presented to them.

Robert Steele: President’s R&D Guidance is WEAK

White House Issues a “National” Science & Tech Agenda

Hat’s off to Steve Aftergood for sharing with us the extraordinarily weak, biased, and ineffective national S&T guidance.

R&D today is corrupt because it is focused on increasing the transfer of wealth from the 99% to the 1%. In that sense, reducing existing R&D programs is the right thing to do.
