    Episode 296: Best of Norman Friedman

    in Military

    We've had a lot of new listeners in the last three years, so it was time to bring back Norman.

    What makes a class of warship a success, a failure, or a missed opportunity? What fundamentals consistently result in a success, and what common threads need to be avoided in order to not repeat the mistakes of the past?

    What decision and results we have seen in previous classes of warships are we seeing repeated now, and what are some options for the Navy going forward?

    For warship classes from right before WWII to the present, to discuss this and more will be returning guest, Dr. Norman Friedman.

    In addition to numeral articles through the years, Dr. Friedman writes a monthly column, "World Naval Developments" in the US Naval Institute's magazine, Proceedings and is the author of many books including U.S. Destroyers: An Illustrated Design History; Unmanned Combat Air Systems; and Naval Weapons of World War One.

    As a starting point for our discussion we will be using Dr. Friedman's article in US Naval Institute's magazine, Naval History, Judging the Good from the Bad.

    Applying Complexity Leadership Theory to Drone Airspace Integration

    Applying Complexity Leadership Theory to Drone Airspace Integration

    This book examines the leadership challenge created by the requirement to integrate unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) into the national airspace system (NAS). The overall lifecycle of leadership does not lend itself to a simple definition or a defined timeline that anyone can follow. As much as society enjoys creating, all of the processes and technology to simplify our lives (although this is debatable), leadership deals with humans and humans are not that simple. The challenge is that the FAA follows a leadership and change management model that is authoritarian, linear, and evolutionary.

    Turkey to allow U.S. planes to use its bases to bomb ISIS (Second Coming Watch)

    in Current Events

    1. The United States and Turkey have reached an agreement for manned and unmanned American warplanes to carry out aerial attacks on the Islamic State from two Turkish air bases. 

    2. The tide of Yemen’s messy war has unexpectedly turned, handing a morale boost and possibly decisive military momentum to Gulf Arab-backed forces bent on ending the ascendancy of the Houthis, a powerful militia they see as a puppet of Iran.

    3. U.S.-trained Iraqi soldiers are preparing for an offensive against the Islamic State in the Iraqi city of Ramadi, in a key test of the Obama administration’s strategy for defeating the militant group. 

    4. A senior Iranian official who helped lead negotiations with world powers that led to the recent nuclear deal said that the Islamic Republic will continue to import and export arms freely across the globe without restriction. 

    5. Turkish fighter jets have struck Islamic State targets in Syria and the government has rounded up hundreds of suspected militants in a coordinated crackdown as the country deployed military force for the first time against the terror group.

    The prophetic passage of Scripture that we are looking at today is 1 Kings 17:1 which reads: "And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the Lord God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word."

    Our second coming quote for today is from J.C. Ryle. He said: "Before Christ comes it is useless to expect to see a perfect Church."
