Iraq and Afghanistan withdrawals, Franco-German messaging, Putin 2036, last week

Trump's self-destructive Afghanistan and Iraq withdrawals. There is no obvious strategic rationale for this decision. But quite obvious risk.

French and German defense ministers give Biden their wish list. The two officials do not appear to have learned much about U.S. concerns over an unbalanced transatlantic relationship.

Sixteen more years. What's behind Putin's legislative drive to retain power until 2036.

from last week...

Michele Flournoy for defense secretary. Flournoy is a smart thinker with DoD experience.

Biden should immediately sanction these two Putin cronies. They are undermining American interests.

Pompeo should bring a tough message to Tbilisi. The Secretary of State must affirm America's commitment to the democratic rule of law.
