GlennThe twelfth of a series of blog posts on Urban Disasters: Readiness, Response, and Recovery by Russ Glenn.Baghdad PatrolIraqi and US Patrols Assess Community Concerns in Al Ghazaliyah, Baghdad, March 2006.Source: US National Archives; Public Domain, NARA & DVIDS Public Domain Archive.We’re on final approach here. This and two more posts will wrap up our discussions…at least for now. Hopefully some of you will find the greater detail, broader coverage, and additional insights and proposals found in my soon to be released Come Hell or High Fever: Readying the World’s Megacities for Disaster of value, or if not of value, than of interest. As I make clear in its opening pages, the book’s focus is on megacities. Those of you who partake of the book will find I define “megacity” somewhat differently than is the norm. Yet the material in Come Hell or High Fever applies to all urban areas…and to some extent rural environments as well, as have several of our key points thus far and others yet to come.As is our habit, here is the rollup of key points noted through our first eleven posts:Key Point #1: Preparation for any urban disaster helps to prepare an urban area for catastrophes regardless of cause or type.

  • Biden Administration Foreign Policy Tracker: February

    • Authors: Dave Maxwell
      Abstract: Biden Administration Foreign Policy Tracker: February Access the foreign policy tracker HERE. February 1, 2023 FDD Tracker: January 1-31, 2023Biden Administration Foreign Policy Tracker: February David AdesnikSenior Fellow and Director of ResearchJohn HardieRussia Program Deputy Director Trend OverviewBy David Adesnik and John HardieWelcome back to the Biden Administration Foreign Policy Tracker. Once a month, we ask FDD’s experts and scholars to assess the administration’s foreign policy. They provide trendlines of very positive, positive, neutral, negative, or very negative for the areas they watch. This is our first monthly tracker since the special year-end edition we published before the holidays.The big story in January was Berlin’s refusal to send Ukraine Leopard tanks or even to let other NATO members give their German-made Leopards to Kyiv. As the war reaches a pivotal phase, the impasse threatened to undermine what has thus far been impressive transatlantic unity. But the Biden administration persuaded Berlin to cooperate by pledging to provide Ukraine with Abrams tanks. Washington is also sending Bradley infantry fighting vehicles and Stryker armored personnel carriers for the first time. This is all good news, yet the White House still refuses to send Kyiv ATACMS missiles, which would maximize Ukraine’s chances of victory and help hasten the war’s conclusion.Another difficult question for the administration is why its envoy for nuclear negotiations with Iran held unpublicized talks with Tehran, which a foreign media outlet later revealed. The White House says it will not push for a nuclear deal while Tehran is crushing protests at home, yet it seems unwilling to give its full support to demonstrators marching under the banner of “Woman, Life, Freedom.”Check back with us next month to see if NATO remains united behind Ukraine and if the White House clarifies its priorities for U.S policy toward Iran.   Dave MaxwellWed, 02/01/2023 - 8:02pmRead more about Biden Administration Foreign Policy Tracker: February15 commentsLog in or register to post comments

      Abstract: Russia’s Losing a Constant as Its Ukraine War Settles into Predictable Alternating PhasesDave MaxwellWed, 02/01/2023 - 7:42pm It has been some time since I have put out a major overall analysis here on the Ukraine-Russia war because there is not a whole lot of new stuff to chew on: yes, Winter Is Here (and I did put together shorter analysis noting winter will hurt the Russian military far more than the Ukrainian military, giving Ukraine another distinct advantage in the winter months), but overall, we are seeing two main phases being repeated, exhibiting dynamics that I have discussed in great detail before and that are overlapping at times to various degrees.

  • Preparing for strategic competition: The need for irregular warfare

      Abstract: Preparing for strategic competition: The need for irregular warfare professional military education Access the Article at The Hill HERE.Preparing for strategic competition: The need for irregular warfare professional military educationBY CHARLES T. CLEVELAND, DANIEL EGEL, DAVID MAXWELL AND HY ROTHSTEIN, OPINION CONTRIBUTORS - 01/31/23 12:00 PM ETThe Department of Defense (DOD) does not provide the irregular warfare (IW) professional military education necessary for success in competition and conflict in the 21st century. This is a not a new problem, but it is one that may deserve new attention from the Congress and the Pentagon.More than 30 years ago, the late Ambassador Michael Sheehan, who also served as the assistant secretary of defense responsible for irregular warfare, observed that IW had “lost its significance as a separate type of conflict that requires different doctrine and training.” Sheehan concluded that a consequence was that the United States lacked the “operational level and campaign planning” necessary for irregular warfare above the tactical level.Congress — reflecting on the findings from the Skelton Panel in the 21st century — has affirmed that “the primary purpose of [professional military education] is to develop military officers, throughout their careers, for the rigorous intellectual demands of complex contingencies and major conflicts.” It is perhaps unsurprising that the United States was unable to assemble high-level irregular-warfare-proficient campaign headquarters in either Afghanistan or Iraq — which may provide a critical vulnerability as U.S. adversaries are increasingly turning to irregular approaches to undermine U.S. conventional supremacy.Access the remainder of the article at The Hill HERE.

  • Validating the Microcosm in Experimental Wargaming: Suggestions for

    • Authors: Dave Maxwell
      Abstract: Validating the Microcosm in Experimental Wargaming: Suggestions for Classroom ApplicationsDave MaxwellSun, 01/29/2023 - 7:14pm Wargaming requires constructing a microcosm of a battle.  Making a microcosm, which we can call modeling, simplifies reality to bring into play the essential factors affecting the outcome.  Simplification in this fashion is based on assumptions regarding which aspects of the battle are essential and which can be eliminated.  Faulty assumptions will result in misleading results.  Therefore, validating those assumptions would be helpful.  This essay addresses how the microcosm might be validated in classroom exercises.

Today, voice assistance devices using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies, such as Amazon Echo and Google Home, are a part of more than half of all United States (US) adults' daily lives. The advancement of AI is leading a global revolution that is changing how we interact.
